Here’s a really beautiful example of a husband honoring his marriage vows to love his wife for better or for worse and in sickness and in health.
Molly Murphy, who goes by mollywho on Imgur told her followers about the challenges she has recently faced including family issues, work stress, financial hardship and overall feelings of hopelessness.
"I've not been the easiest person to deal with," she wrote. "In fact, sometimes I've lost all hope and even taken my frustration out on my new husband. But he somehow forgives me every time. I have a long journey ahead of me, and I know he probably realizes I'm depressed. But he holds my hand, and he tries his best."
As if that wasn’t sweet enough, she went on to share the most heartwarming part.
"Today when I came home from a trip to SF, I flopped onto my bed in tears," she continued. "I looked to my left, and saw these words painted all across my mirror."
In case you can't make out the words on the mirror, the list reads:
1. She is my best friend
2. She never quits on herself or me
3. She gives me time to work on my crazy projects
4. She makes me laugh, everyday
5. She is gorgeous
6. She accepts the crazy person I am
7. She's the kindest person I know
8. She's got a beautiful singing voice
9. She's gone to a strip club with me
10. She has experienced severe tragedy, yet is the most optimistic person about humanity I know
11. She has been fully supportive about my career choices and followed me each time
12. Without realizing it, she makes me want to do more for her than I have ever wanted to do for anyone
13. She's done an amazing job at advancing her career path
14. Small animals make her cry
15. She snorts when she laughs
The list of “Reasons I love my wife” is one of the greatest gestures any husband can offer to uplift his spouse.
His list serves as a reminder of all her wonderful qualities, making her feel appreciated and loved … That’s all any woman really wants, right? Even if she isn’t depressed.
I'm not saying mental illness is cured by nice words on a mirror,” Murphy wrote. “In fact, it takes professional care, love, empathy, sometimes even medication just to cope. Many people struggle with it mental illness — more than we probably even realize. And instead of showing them hate or anger when they act out. Show them kindness and remind them things can and WILL get better. Everyone needs a little help sometimes.”
“I'm still struggling, but I'm glad I have my other half to help me make it through,” she continued. “It may just be a few words on my mirror, but I'll look at them when I wake up and know I'm not alone. I'll know I have my bestfriend, my co-pilot in life to help guide me through.”
All together now, "Awwwww!"
