"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.”
This is incredibly sweet.
ANDRE JOHNSON HELPS BRING CHRISTMAS JOY TO NEEDY KIDS - Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson treated 12 kids from Child Protective Services to an all-expenses paid Toys-R-Us shopping spree on Tuesday.
Johnson joined the kids and their siblings for a fun frenzy. They had 80 seconds to pick out anything, and everything, they could fit into a shopping cart.
Johnson also threw in a gaming console and two games. When everything was totaled, Johnson foot the bill for $17,352 worth of merchandise.
“It just gives them a chance to go through the store and get whatever they want,” Johnson said via the Texans website. “They don’t have to ask nobody for it. Whatever they have on their Christmas list they can pick up. That’s the reason why I do it.”
This is the seventh year Andre Claus has sponsored the shopping spree. (Photo: Instagram)

When my sister was little, she had an imaginary friend called Jackie. One Sunday, my great aunt was over and my sister came in, announced to the room that Jackie fell down the stair and died, and left. My great auntie calmly looked up and said “how did she know about that?” Apparently, my great auntie had a little brother called Jack (her mother, who died a little before my sister was born, called him Jackie) and when he was 7, he fell down the stairs, banged his head and died.
When I was little I had an imaginary friend named Sissy and she constantly told me to do bad things. She taught me bad words and told me to tell my mom “shut up” whenever she said something I didn’t like. I fucking hated Sissy. She stayed with me until I was like 11 then I moved. I kind of miss her now.
