givesmehope: I had an uncle, who every day would wake up and say good morning to life. A few years ago, he died unexpectedly. When I went to his funeral, the church was PACKED full of teenagers. Turns out he volunteered at a local high school, and many of those teenagers told me they wouldn’t be alive today without him. His love of life and all people GMH.

That GMH.

As I gloomily watched the other kids play with Mickey, I felt a someone tap my shoulder. It was Donald Duck. He stayed by my side the entire time, making sure I was having fun. To this day, he’s still my favorite character. Donald Duck GMH

I just found out she was rushed into hospital at 5 AM and asked her friend to send the text for her. Her thoughtfulness and LGMH.

lovegivesmehope: When I first started dating my boyfriend, we were sitting on a couch one night when he started crying. We had been talking a bit about his mother, who died about six years ago. When I asked him why he was crying he replied, “I just really wish she could have met you, the love of my life.” LGMH
