You Won't Believe How Amazing This Team Is At Editing
I was best friends with a girl that had physical disability growing up. She was in a wheelchair because of MS, but she was pretty beautiful and smart.
Her parents, however, weren't the best people. Her mom didn't care about anyone except her boyfriend. She was always out on week-nights and would leave my friend alone to fend for herself even though she couldn't do pretty much anything on her own. Her dad was not the greatest guy. He used vulgar language and was physically abusive.
Anyway, sometimes I would go to her house after school and we would hang out. I would make us dinner, we would hang out and watch a movie, and we would chat late into the night. She was the type of girl I could talk with anyone about, which was pretty rare for me I'm pretty socially awkward.
One day, she asked me if I'll go to prom with her. I honestly hadn't seen her in that way before, so I asked her to give me some time to think about it. She understood. That night I went out for a drive and I thought about it. This was the person I spent most of my time with. This was the person I cared about more besides anyone. This was the person I definitely wanted to go to prom with.
Today, that woman is my wife. I couldn't be happier with my decision to marry her, and to go to prom with her ten years ago. Yes, I am her primary caretaker, and sometimes I feel like it's a lot to handle, but she does so much for me, too. She has given me confidence. She has made me understand the value of slowing down. She has the most beautiful reading voice. There are innumerable things to love about her, and I'm proud she's my wife.

Everyone thinks policemen are the bad guys but give them a chance! I'm going to tell you my story about a cop that saved my life. One night I was homeless. It was in the middle of the night, I was drugged up and tired. I was sleeping under a bridge. Along came a cop, and what did he do? 'Get in' he said. I got in, thinking he was taking me to jail. Nope. He took me to his family home. Turns out, he had a spare bedroom that he had set up, and he let me spend the night there. He told me to shower, gave me a hot meal, put his hands on my shoulders the next morning and said, "I know you're better than this." After that, I turned my life around. All thanks to him.
I met a woman on a dating site. She wanted to cut through the red tape and meet that weekend. So we plan to meet for coffee/lunch at a neighbourhood cafe.
I arrive early, and find that she is already waiting. We sit down and start talking.
Shes fit. She's a professional. She mentions that Im not fat and she likes that. All sounds great.
To be honest, the whole meal was pretty great. We talked, laughed and smiled at each other. I thought, "Wow, this might actually work out."
After we're done, we go for a walk outside. She asks if I want to spend the day together. I explain that I would love to but I have a families gathering for my nephews graduation.
She says, "Are you serious? Youd rather go to a family party than to be with me?" I explained that, no, Id prefer to be with but I gave my word that I would be there. I dont just blow things off for personal reasons. She shook her head and said, "Whatever," and walked away.
I got a follow-up message online telling me that she would give me one more chance. I politely declined.
Breaking up is hard to do.
And when you get the law involved, it's even worse. But sometimes people don't need the law's help to make things overcomplicated, they just have a grand ole time making that happen themselves.
