“Now he walks down the street in the evenin’
And he stops by the old candy store
And I somehow believe he’s believin’
He’s holdin’ ‘er hand like before
For he feels all her love walkin’ with him
And he smiles at the things she might say
Then the old man walks up to the hilltop
And gives her a daisy a day

I’ll give you a daisy a day, dear
I’ll give you a daisy a day
I’ll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away”

—“A Daisy A Day”

I can only imagine 82-year old Bud Caldwell singing this song in his head as he walks toward the park bench that he bought and dedicated to his beloved wife Betty.

This, and another song entitled, “Pennies from Heaven” had been the couple’s favorite songs during their 56 years of marriage.

Bud bought this park bench to honor his beloved Betty.

Since Betty’s death, Bud has been bringing a daisy and a penny as a gift and tribute to their favorite songs. There, he had also been telling her about his day. He had been doing this everyday, rain or shine because this is his way of showing her that he won’t let her down.

Rain or shine, Bud visits Betty’s bench every single day.

But recently, the snowy and icy weather in Fond du Lac, Winsconsin where he lives has somehow restricted his trips to the park. He continued the trips but he couldn’t walk up to Betty’s bench. The walk ways are completely covered in snow, and is therefore dangerous to cross. Bud had no choice but to stay inside his car alone with his gifts.

When two park employees noticed this, they immediately shoveled the path towards Betty’s bench and have decided to keep doing this all through winter. This very kind gesture brought Bud Caldwell to tears and said,

“Two young men did such a nice thing for one old man.”

Now, Bud can walk towards Betty’s bench where he can sit, talk, and offer his gifts.

Maybe he could sing their songs to her and imagine that he’s holding her hand again.

Trust is an integral component of all forms of relationships. Be it a professional relationship, friendship, or marriage - it is important to build a solid foundation based on trust. This is particularly true for married couples. Unfortunately, some people may experience insecurities in their relationships. Once this happens, doubt sets in and trust slowly fades away. You might wonder if your partner is really out with friends or is really staying late at work due to some urgent matters that can't wait until tomorrow.

So what happens when trust is shaken up?

Talking about these kinds of problems is possibly the best way to address trust issues. However, some people may find ways to come up with other forms of solutions - just like what this woman did in this fictional story. She suspects that her husband's commitment to their relationship is not at par with hers, so she decided to give him a test. The results that she got after definitely stunned her.

This Guy Looks Normal. But When He Turns Around You’ll Be TOTALLY Creeped Out!

A man who literally has two faces… Would you like to meet him?

When we say 'someone has two faces', we often mean that in the figurative sense. For one, it is kind of impossible for that to be taken literally. However, in the 19th century, it was believed that there was a man who literally had two faces. Can you believe that?

His name was Edward Mordake, and he had two faces - one in front and the other at the back of his head. The stories that surround his existence vary, and whether he is real or is just a mere figment of a fertile imagination remains unknown. At present, his existence could not be confirmed due to the absence of records pertaining to his birth or to his death.

Was Edward Mordake real?
