This Woman’s Life-Saving Birthday Gift To Her Sick GF Is So Insanely Sweet It’s Making Everyone Cry

  • 0

It’s hard to watch the people you love struggle with a sickness of any kind, especially when there isn’t a lot you can do to help. But this woman found a way to give her ill girlfriend the birthday present of a lifetime — quite literally.

Things had been tough for Lori’s girlfriend, who needed a kidney to survive but didn’t have a match. So to make her feel better, Lori presented her girlfriend with a package full of her favorite things — redvines, gel pens, fun little games.

At the bottom of the box was the big surprise: an announcement that the two of them were “matches” in more way than one.

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

Instagram Poet’s “3-Step Book” To Conquer Trauma

Depression is real. Anxiety is real. PTSD is real. ALL mental illnesses are real. Don’t believe anyone who is trying to tell you otherwise.

Every time I’m stressed I distract myself with doing something nice for someone else and it’s the best thing on this planet to watch someone’s eyes light up because they weren’t expecting something nice to happen.
