I read this out loud to boyfriend and he just went “ohhhhhhhhh”
HE THOUGHT HIS LIL FRIEND GOT BAKED INTO A COOKIE I AM 100% DONE AWHH
"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said;
"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"
"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"
"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."
"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”
OH MY CHRIST

fucking soulless sam though
i miss that bastard
soulless sam was the perfect asshole
is no one ever gonna mention that this episode was just one big “dean is bi” joke like at the end the fairy guy is talking to Sam and he’s legit like “he belongs to us now” juxtaposed with Dean being in jail because they thought he was was being homophobic for saying “fight the fairies” They literally were like “fairy means gay” *switches to other scene* “Dean is a with the fairy’s now [one of us chants in the background]”, that and the “did you service Oberon King of the Fairies” AND “I think the 4th kind is a butt thing” it’s almost obscene how many big fat sparkling arrows are pointing to Dean saying “this person is not straight”
me when i think of Christmas
