You can’t judge an Apple, by looking at the tree. You can’t judge the honey, by looking at the bee. You can’t judge a dog, by looking at its mother….you can’t judge a book by looking at the cover.The story of The Three Little Pigs, one of my favorite tales. It can be incorporated into relationships, that’s if you spin it rather well.
Each little pig represented a couple, and they worked out of trust and communication. The homes they built represented the relationship, and how they weathered it was in the foundation.
Each couple completed their houses, but they really had no clues. About this Big Bad Wolf, that went by the name of problems and issues.
He would eventually blow through town, bring the wind and the pain. He’d cause arguments and test their strength, to see if they could stand the rain.
The first couple he tested, built their house rather fast. It was love at first sight, so they were sure it would last.
They fell in love with the material, it was beautiful golden straw. But they say haste makes waste, and the Wolf was able to find every flaw.
They would argue and apologize, put a smile on top of a frown. They’d kiss but truly never make up, and the Wolf blew their house down.
The second couple used wood to build, they didn’t want to suffer the same fate. They put a little more time and effort into the house, didn’t want to fall victim to hate.
The Wolf took a deep breath and blew, and he was rather amazed. The wooden house may have shook a little, but it made it through that phase.
The Wolf brought a little bit of pain, and then he muddied the soil. But the couple apologized to each other for their arguments, and made it past the turmoil.
The Wolf tried a different tactic, he blew in some rain and hail. His plan was to remove color from the house, strip the paint and make it stale.
The house began to crumble and fall, when it was ripped to its wires and cords. The couple just couldn’t handle things, when the relationship got to board.
The last couple decided to use bricks, each stone possessed beauty and power. They laid each one down with TLC, putting in the time and the hours.
Feeling what they had was magical, in each other’s arms they rested. Along cane the big bad wolf, to see if their foundation could be tested.
So the wolf had huffed and puffed, but he noticed the home didn’t even shake. The couple had argued and cried with each other, so that tremor didn’t keep them awake.
So the wolf sent different types of weather, but the red bricks kept their gorgeous glow. They didn’t fade or lose their excitement, no matter how hard he would blow.
The Wolf clawed viciously at the foundation, but this couple had been through the ups and downs. This attack was futile, because their home was on solid ground.
The Wolf was certain he would blow the house down, but they ended up proving him wrong. And where is this couple at now you say? Me and my lover is still going strong!♥️
