Many girls dream of their big day, deciding every little detail as soon as they learn what a wedding is. Elizabeth was one of those girls, having planned out the whole ceremony to perfection, which is exactly why she wasn’t expecting the pastor to suddenly stop the ceremony with a surprise announcement.
The bride and wedding guests were stunned when he announced that the groom, Alan Hale, had a special gift for his beautiful bride. Right before their first kiss ever, Alan had planned to serenade Elizabeth with a touching song he’d written especially for the love of his life.
What a beautiful song, one that this couple and their loved ones will remember for years to come!
Our Indian friends at Animal Aid Unlimited recently discovered a street dog that was in desperate need of help — and would’ve died without a rescue. The pup was suffering from a maggot-infested neck wound that was both threatening her life and making it miserable.
Without treatment she would have died in a day or two. Luckily they got to her in time and she’s been transformed into the most adorable, happy little dog now!
Unfortunately, most of us are so caught up in work and daily tasks that we don’t realize how quickly time flies by. As our lives become more demanding, it’s harder to find the time to visit family members who don’t live nearby.
She went years without seeing her brother. Because of his busy life in a different state and the fact that she is a single mother who isn’t able to take time off work, they spent 24 years apart. But when she came home one day to see her daughter, she got the best surprise ever.
I can’t imagine how amazing this moment was for them.
How sweet was that? Even though they were separated for so long, it’s awesome that they were finally able to reunite.
I think we should all go and call (or visit!) our siblings or family members. I know I’m going to!
High school graduation doesn’t just signify the end of something. It also celebrates the beginning of a brand-new era in one’s life. Graduation speeches are usually replete with well-wishes, and more often than not, they bring students, faculty, and parents to tears. But one student in New Zealand just gave the most heartbreaking speech of all time — and it was absolutely stunning.
Jake Bailey is loved by everyone who knows him. Sadly, the admirable teen was given some devastating news while he was in the process of drafting his graduation speech.
Just days before the ceremony, doctors told Jake that he had an aggressive form of cancer that would kill him in three weeks if he didn’t start treatment immediately. Suddenly, a world of possibility turned into a terrifying glimpse into what could be a short future.
But Jake was determined to speak to his class. You can watch the brave student’s entire speech in the video below.
