Great love stories still happen today.
For example, in the town of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, there is a bench in the park, to which an old man comes every day with flowers and a coin. And even deep snowdrifts cannot stop him, because he goes to his beloved.
Bud Caldwell and his wife Betty enjoyed a happy marriage for 55 years. But a few years ago, the man lost his beloved.
In memory of her, he bought a bench in a local park and every day he comes to this place to talk with his wife.
He brings a bouquet of daisies and a penny with him. For him, it symbolizes two of Betty’s favorite songs: “Pennies From Heaven” and “Daisy A Day”.
Once in a snowy winter, when the park paths were not cleared, strangers noticed an old man standing in a snowdrift in front of a bench. They came to talk and learned the story of his love and dedication.
Today, Bud is already over 80 years old, but he still makes it through the snowdrifts to his wife’s bench.
People were touched by this man’s dedication. Now they willingly open the way for him to the bench at the end of the path, so that Bud can visit his wife without obstacles and bring her a bouquet of daisies and “cents from heaven.”
The old man thought no one would notice. He only does it for himself and his beloved. Therefore, he was very surprised at such help from strangers.
Bud admits that he goes to the park every day because he still loves his wife very much and will love her until the end of his days.
Not only does he bring her “gifts,” but he also talks for a while. The man tells his wife about his experiences, his news and how much he misses her.
It is the love stories that truly inspire confidence that everything is not so bad in our world.
