These Valentine’s day stories defines what Valentine’s day should be all about and what inspired me to be a better “husband.” I hope this inspire you and others around you as well.
First Story – Title “Love never ends“.
My sweet husband, John, and I were married for 46 years. Each Valentine’s day, he had sent me the most beautiful flowers containing a note with five simple words: “My love for you grows.” Four children, 46 bouquets and a lifetime of love were his legacy to me when he passed away two years ago.
“On my first Valentine’s day alone, 10 months after I lost him, I was shocked to receive a gorgeous bouquet addressed to me … From John. Angry and heartbroken, I called the florist to say there have been a mistake. The florist replied, No ma’am, it is not a mistake. Before he passed away, your husband prepaid for many years and asked us to guarantee that you’d continue getting bouquets every Valentine’s day. With my heart in my throat, I hung up the phone and read the attached card. It said, “My love for you is eternal.” – Sue Johnston, 68, Houston, TX
Second story – Title “Never feels alone“.
So today I was in Hallmark buying my mom a Happy Birthday card when I noticed this old man studying in front of the Valentines card section contemplating which one to get. I decide to go over and I ask him “Are you getting a Valentine’s Day for your wife?” in which he replies ‘No my wife died 3 years ago from breast cancer but I still buy her roses and a card and bring them to her grave to prove to her that she was the only one that will ever have my heart. – Anonymous
