His Anniversary Gift for His Wife with Multiple Sclerosis Will Leave You Speechless

Love is stronger than we think. It can thrive even though difficulties strike. It moves in mysterious ways and provides people like this long-time married couple the power to inspire others.

“Love moves in mysterious ways.” This much is true when fate decides to bring two people together and unite them through marriage. During their wedding, the bride and the groom vow to be at each others’ side to support and love their better-half no matter what – through thick and thin, in sickness and in health.

A British man named Carl Gilbertson has proven his love and sincerity when he said these words to his wife Laura after he continued caring for her throughout the years of their marriage even after she was diagnosed with a paralyzing disease known as multiple sclerosis (MS).

Carl and Laura Gilbertson Celebrates their 10th Wedding Anniversary

Living with and caring for a person suffering from this disease is extremely difficult because patients with this disease have very special needs that need to be met.

According to the National MS Society, multiple sclerosis involves an abnormal response of the body’s immune system. This malfunction makes the immune cells target the patient’s central nervous system (CNS) comprised of the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves.

Because of this, MS patients cannot function normally and may experience varying symptoms, the most common of which include visual disturbances, overwhelming fatigue, altered sensation, and difficulties with mobility. Generally, MS patients require almost 24-hour care because they become gradually paralyzed with the disease.

Even with these difficulties, Carl never left Laura’s side. He continued loving and taking care of her throughout their 10 years as husband and wife. Now, they are celebrating their 10th anniversary, something he took advantage of to tell Laura how much she really meant to him.

With the aid of the Liverpool Media Academy in England, Carl orchestrated an unforgettable wedding anniversary present for Laura. He arranged a flash mob performance to the tune of Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are,” a song that thoroughly expresses how he felt for her. At the end of the performance, the Liverpool Academy students held up a banner with a photo of Laura during their wedding day and the words: “Happy Anniversary, Laura.”

Further expressing his love for his wife, Carl wrote this heartwarming message over his Facebook account:

“At our wedding breakfast I said that ‘it is the greatest honor anybody could ever bestow upon me for you to take me as your husband and the most enduring privilege to be able to call you my wife.’ It was never just a line for a speech, it was how I felt and you spend every day re-enforcing it. Your strength, courage, and dignity take my breath away and though most Saturdays at kick-off time you may not think it, you’re the only thing that really matters. My babe, you’re amazing – just the way you are.”

A Woman Builds Little Street Pantry to Give Free Food & Goodies to the Needy

What act of kindness have you done today?

It started with Little Free Libraries, now it gave birth to Little Street Pantry, a small storage in the middle of the streets full of food and other goodies for the needy. Jessica Mcclard was fascinated with the idea of the free books scattered around the area and so, she came up with a concept of creating a small food cupboard in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

The Thrivent Financial supported Mcclard's project by giving her an initial $250 to build her very first free pantry near to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Fortunately, the project became a huge success. It now has thousands of fans on Facebook and has been an inspiration to many to do the same type of kindness in South Fayetteville and Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Fitness Blogger Shows Why You Should Stop Obsessing About The Number On Your Scale

We can all learn something from this woman…

Kelsey Wells, a 26-year old fitness blogger and interior designer, has showed her Instagram followers that the number on the scales shouldn't be the basis for how people see their bodies. Previously, the My Sweat Life blogger posted a reminder on her Instagram about how one's weight isn't something that shows one's health.

He’s showing us all what the art of selflessness is all about.

Tong was horrified when he realized that the women had undergone abortion. Still, he didn't judge these women. He knew they were driven by desperate circumstances.

However, Tong's heart broke for the aborted babies. So, he asked Vietnamese authorities to allow him to bury the aborted babies. Fortunately, they granted his selfless request.
