It's nearly Valentine's Day, which means you should prepare for a flurry of heart-warming love stories.
This one's kinda cute, via Huffington Post. Sue Johnston, 68 wrote into a magazine with a story about her late husband's thoughtfulness, and it's made everyone feel so warm and fuzzy it's gone viral on Twitter.
Here's her letter:
My sweet husband, John, and I were married for 46 years. Each Valentine's Day, he’d send 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 had been a mistake. The florist replied, 'No, ma'am, it's 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.'"
