Last year, I was going to kill myself. I wrote a note and slipped it into my best friend’s locker at school. That night, I was preparing to die, when she crawled through my window and kissed me. My first real kiss. Kristain, I know you read GivesMeHope all the time. Will you marry me? via GMH
I work at a hair salon, and every Saturday this man brings his wife in to get her hair washed and blow dried. She had a stroke and cannot walk or talk, he also puts her lipstick and blush on for her every morning. They have been together for over 50 years. via LGMH
I work in aged care, and every day at morning tea time, 2 residents sit together and share a slice of cake. They met 2 years ago when they came to live in the Nursing home, and today they shared their first kiss. A room full of 70+ year old people clapped. True love, no matter how old we are, is still magical. via LGMH
I am battling cancer. I was transferred to an out-of-state hospital for a liver resection. When I woke, I found my fiance beside me, 17 hours from home. I asked him why he had come, he said “The day we get married I want to be able to look you in the eye and have you know that when I say ‘in sickness and in health,’ I mean it.” via LGMH
Today is my birthday. A couple months ago I was attacked by a dog that left horrendous scars on my face. My boyfriend made a book that says “You’re the most beautiful thing I have ever seen” in over 100 different languages. via LGMH
Today, My grandmother got her first cellphone, and she called me over to change her background to a picture of my departed grandfather who died 16 years ago. Her never ending love, GMH.
Yesterday I turned my calculator on to do my math homework and “I love you” was written on the screen. My boyfriend said “I wrote it last Sunday and I’ve been waiting all week for you to turn it on.” He knows I’m struggling with precalc and he can’t help me, but his love and support make me want to do my best. It GMH.
My dad has a job that requires him to do quite a bit of travelling. Every time he goes away, no matter how short the trip, he hides a card for my mom somewhere in the house. She always finds it with a picture, a quote, or a message telling her how much he misses her. They’ve been married 25 years. My parents enduring love and romance GMH.
I work in an ICU, and yesterday while on shift I noticed that the same elderly man had been sleeping in the waiting room for four days. I asked him why he didn’t go home for a sleep. Turns out he is the husband of a woman in isolation on the ward. In his words “We’ve been married 65 years, I couldn’t sleep without her there anyway.” GMH
Last summer, I went to Iowa for a week to visit my friends grandparents with her. One night I was walking up the stairs to go to sleep and I heard her grandpa’s voice. I asked why he was up so late, and she responded “My grandpa still reads to my grandma at night.” Their love GMH.
