On the bus to school today I saw an old man with flowers standing up.
A pregnant teen let him take her seat.
The man gave the flowers to her, explaining that he was going to give them to his wife, but nobody had ever been that generous to him.
The man got off the bus two stops later - outside a cemetery. GMH
While walking through a cemetery on the way to work, I noticed a girl walking in front of me.
I’ve seen her there every weekend, even though she never visits a grave.
I watched her pick up every piece of litter she could find, put it in the bin, and then brush leaves and dead grass off old graves.
Her small smile as she did this GMH.
Today, an 8 year old died in a fire.
He was going back in to save his 17 month old baby brother.
The courage of this little boy GMH
My best friend passed away a year ago.
On her death bed, she cried to her daughter, “I cannot imagine you growing up without me telling you how much I love you.”
Her 5 year-old daughter replied, “Then video it, mommy, and I promise I’ll watch it every day until forever.”
A year later, Mollie still watches the video every day.
My daughter has always told me she never wanted to have kids. She wanted to adopt.
I’ve always asked her why and she always told me because orphans need love too
. At age 15 she was deemed infertile.
She looked at me and said “that’s okay, I want to adopt, remember?” She GMH
My best friend Alex left for the army about 18 months ago and I have missed him ever since.
Every night, before I go to bed, I wish to hear his voice, or see his face, or at least know that he is ok.
This morning I got a letter from him. It said said that for the 4 years we’ve been friends, he accidentally fell in love with me, and he would soon be home. He GMH.
My mom and dad have been in love since they were 15.
He’d tapped on her window to say goodnight.
The night my dad died my mom heard something hit her window when she was laying down in her room.
I asked what it was. Without a doubt she said “Just dad telling me that he’ll be watching and waiting.”
Someone, somewhere is reading this.
You may or may not believe me, but YOU are beautiful, strong, and I think you can make it through.
Don’t give up. You GMH.
