I don't know that i have ever heard a more tender story of bravery,
unconditional sacrificial love,
& the joy of living your life to the fullest --each moment.
The link i have is actually from snopes which a longer version of the story.
I urge you to take the 120 seconds it will take to read this.....
Personally, I pray I learn from this story....that i take to heart the lesson from this beautiful bride ....that i learn to not live a life wrapped up in fear (which i struggle with frequently) ...
that I take each day as a blessing & live it , out loud, to its fullest blessing.
