A husband wanted to cheer his wife up, so he left a touching note on their bedroom mirror

He’s a keeper.

LIFE CAN GET a little overwhelming sometimes, but a kind gesture like this can make the daily grind that bit easier.

Last night, Imgur user mollywho shared an image of a rather touching note she received from her husband.

On her bedroom mirror, of course.

In the accompanying caption, she explained that she has been depressed lately, but that her husband still endeavours to cheer her up wherever possible.

I’ve been juggling a LOT lately. Trying to move up the (ahem) corporate latter. Just got married. Couldn’t afford a wedding. Family is sparse. Falling out with friends, yaddadyadda. But, the thing is, amidst all the struggle, my husband has relentlessly tried to cheer me up. I’ve not been the east person to deal with. In fact, sometimes I’ve said the cruelest most hateful words to my new husband. But he somehow forgives me every time.
I have a long journey ahead of me, and I know he probably realizes I’m mentally ill. But he holds my hand, and he tries his best.

And last night, she arrived home from a trip to San Francisco to find that he had listed out the reasons he loves her on their bedroom mirror. (We hope that’s non-permanent marker.)

I think he wanted me to remember how much he loves me. Because he knows how quickly I forget. He knows I struggle to see good in the world, and especially the good in myself. But here it is. A testament and gesture of his love. Damn, I needed it today…
