I have heard it said many times that movies give women an unrealistic idea of love. Romance movies that show men making grand gestures and sweeping women off their feet are make believe – in real life men just aren’t like that.
Sometimes, though, life really is as good as the movies.
If you’ve ever seen the movie “P.S. I Love You” this story may sound familiar. The only difference is that this one is real.
The story was shared by Kayla Miller who wanted people to know that true love – the kind that makes you swoon – really does exist, and that you shouldn’t be quick to settle for less than the best.
On Valentine’s Day Kayla shared a picture of her coworker’s desk, on which there stood a beautiful flower arrangement.
At first glance that doesn’t seem so incredible, considering the holiday, but the story behind the photo is absolutely beautiful.
These flowers were delivered to work today for a lady I work with,” Kayla said. “They are from her husband who passed away two years ago. Every holiday and birthday since his passing she has been receiving flowers, presents, and jewelry from him.
Kayla explained that the woman’s husband had lined all of this up before he died so his wife wouldn’t feel alone on the days when it would be hardest to be without him.
“I am sharing this story not only because it’s amazing and it warms my heart, but to show girls that true love is real,” Kayla said. “You don’t have to settle for someone because you think no one else will love you. You don’t have to put up with being cheated on or lied to or being talked down to. You are a prize to be won, and there is someone out there that will love you forever and even through the afterlife.”
In a world where it seems like all we ever hear about is bad news, it’s nice to be reminded that there is still good in the world, and true love is real.
Were you touched by what this man did for his wife? So share this!
