The following story is a reminder that when we love someone genuinely, we would never do anything to hurt their feelings, even if that means having to have salty coffee our entire life.
If you wonder what this means, keep reading.
When a couple met back in the day, they both ordered some coffee, but then the man asked for some salt to add to it.
The woman was quite confused as she had never heard anyone having their coffee with salt.
Although it was their first date ever, she decided to ask him about his uncommon preference.
He replied: “When I was a little boy, I was living near the sea, I liked playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea, just like the taste of salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I always think of my childhood, think of my hometown, I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there.”
Eventually, the two got married and spent wonderful years together.
After over four decades, before the man died, he wrote a letter to his darling wife.
Please forgive me; forgive my whole life’s lie.
This was the only lie I told you—the salty coffee.
Remember the first time we dated?
I was so nervous at that time; actually, I wanted some sugar, but I said salt.
It was hard for me to change, so I just went ahead.
I never thought that could be the start of our communication!
I tried to tell you the truth many times in my life, but I was too afraid to do that, as I have promised not to lie to you for anything.
Now that I’m dying, I’m afraid of nothing, so I’ll tell you the truth: I don’t like the salty coffee, What a strange bad taste.
But I have had salty coffee for my whole life!
Since I knew you, I never felt sorry for anything I did for you.
Having you with me is my biggest happiness for my whole life.
If I can live for the second time, I still want to know you and have you for my whole life, even though I have to drink the salty coffee again.”
The woman was in tears, she simply couldn’t believe just how loved she had been her entire life by this man who would do anything for her.
Years after his passing, someone asked her:
A few years later, someone asked her: What’s the taste of salty coffee?
“It’s sweet.” she replied.
