We've all etched something into a bench or a tree before, in hopes that someone would see our message at some point. More times than often, most people have absolutely no clue of the meaning behind what you etched unless they personally know you or there's a story to go along with it. You're probably wondering, why destroy something that isn't yours when you can just write a note on a piece of paper? Well, people usually lose paper, or it ends up in the trash. In this case, a man etched a brief love note to his wife for all the right reasons.
A man who died of a ruptured artery did something extremely special for his wife before passing. He knew how much his wife enjoyed metal engraving so he made her a work bench and when he finished, he left her a note in red marker in hopes that she would find it. The noted read: "I love you Becca. Whatever day this is, I hope it's a good one. God truly answered my prayers the day he gave me you. I know that these days are the best I'll ever have, and I'm glad you're in them. I'm not sure if you'll ever see this, but if you do, just know that I love you very much. If there is one thing want in life, it is to be as good to you as you are to me. If I can do that, I'll be the happiest man alive. I love you beautiful wife."
Are you swimming in your own tears because I am. The image went viral on imgur and users went crazy. The beautiful couples son left a post on the photo saying, "Thanks for the love guys. You don't have to send me anything. I only ask that you love one another so there can be peace. Leave the world better than you found it."
How beautiful was this story? Now ladies, don't all run out at once grabbing the first handyman you see. Stories like these are priceless and should happen on their own.
What's the sweetest thing someone has ever done for you?
