It’s not every day that you’d come to meet someone who wouldn’t give up on you when you’re at your lowest. When you’re struggling with your job, your finances, and everything else in between, and you feel like all your efforts are futile, you often find yourself doubting your own worth.
But when a person accepts you and promises to remain by your side when you don’t have anything else to offer other than yourself, what would you do?
Priscilla knew from the start that her relationship with Victor won’t be something that can be compared to a fairytale. He doesn’t have much; hence, he couldn’t give much. No lavish gifts, romantic weekends on a remote island, nor fancy dates in expensive restaurants. However, those things didn’t matter to her. She loved him and she gladly accepted the things Victor gave her with all her heart, no matter how small or simple it is.
In return, Victor gave her his best.
Victor Carrasco now shares their story on “The Way We Met,” and hundreds of thousands were moved to tears.
“When I met Priscilla I had no money, no car (I actually rode my bike to and from work or took the bus), no stable income, and a future that looked bleak at best. I was working the front desk at the gym where she joined. When we started dating I literally told her, “I have nothing to offer you.” Yet all she asked for was my heart.
“On December 16, 2015, we decided to get married, just the two of us without anyone knowing. There was no engagement and no diamond ring. I had just enough money to pay for the marriage certificate and a $3 ring for her. All we cared about was being married and spending our life together as husband and wife. And even though her ring was only $3, she wore it proudly and showed it off to everyone as if it cost 3 million. She loved telling everyone she was Mrs. Carrasco.
“After a few months of marriage, a lot of hard work, and many prayers, I was finally able to buy her the diamond ring she deserved. And even though we’re already married, I got down on one knee and gave her the proper proposal she deserved as well.
“I’m not sharing this story to brag about money or because I can now afford nicer things. Instead, this post is meant to cherish and honor my wife for accepting me for who I am and what I had to offer at the time. The way she looked at me when I got down on one knee was the most rewarding moment of my life and now I can’t wait to see her in her perfect white dress. I promise to always support her unconditionally through the good times and the bad, as she has done for me. And to continue to work hard every day to prove her right for taking a chance on me.”

Drunk Guys Discover Life-Changing Message From A Washroom Mirror
The most effective DUI message I’ve seen so far.
Everyone knows that drinking and driving is never a good idea but the sad fact of the matter is that numerous motorists still violate this simple rule.

The site further pointed out that in 2014 alone, for example, “9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths” in the country....
