The Will thought it was just a piece of paper that had words on it that nobody understood...until it realized its purpose.
It was tucked away in a drawer gathering dust for years. When finally, one day the drawer opened and someone the Will did not recognize reached inside and carefully took it out. The person lightly brushed off the dust and read the title, “Last Will and Testament of Joe Smith”.
The Will knew that Joe Smith was its owner. The Will was then treated with great respect and tenderness. The owner’s children came from far away to see the Will. While many tears fell as the words on the page were read, the Will finally understood its purpose in life and for the first time was happy.
