Inspirational Stories About Love and Life!!! Love is patient; love is kind. It does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others; it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” is a great verse from the Bible (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) which says love is above everything in the universe.

1. Never-ending Love
The passengers on the bus watched sympathetically as the attractive young woman with the white cane made her way carefully up the steps. She paid the driver and using her hands to feel the location of the seats, walked down the aisle and found the seat he’d told her was empty. She settled down, placed her briefcase on her lap and rested her cane against her leg.
It had been a year since Susan, thirty-four years old, became blind. Due to a medical misdiagnosis, she had been rendered sightless, and she was suddenly thrown into a world of darkness, anger, frustration and self-pity. All she had to cling to was her husband, Mark.
Mark was an Air Force officer, and he loved Susan with all his heart. When she first lost her sight, he watched her sink into despair and was determined to help his wife gain the strength and confidence she needed to become independent again.
After some time, Susan finally felt ready to return to her job. However, how would she get there? She used to take the bus but was now too frightened to get around the city by herself. Mark volunteered to drive her to work each day even though they worked at opposite ends of the city. At first, this comforted Susan and fulfilled Mark’s need to protect his sightless wife who was so insecure about performing the slightest task.
However, Mark soon realized the arrangement wasn’t working. He admitted to himself that Susan will have to start taking the bus again. Nevertheless, she was still so fragile, so angry – how would she react? Just as he predicted, Susan was horrified at the idea of taking the bus again.
“I’m blind!” She responded bitterly.
“How am I supposed to know where I am going? I feel like you’re abandoning me.”
Mark’s heart broke to hear these words, but he knew what had to be done. He promised Susan that each morning and evening he would ride the bus with her, for as long as it took until she got the hang of it. That is exactly what happened. For two solid weeks, Mark, in his military uniform and all, accompanied Susan to and from work each day.
He taught her how to rely on her other senses, specifically her hearing, to determine where she was and how to adapt to her new environment. He helped her befriend the bus drivers who could watch out for her and save her a seat.
Finally, Susan decided that she was ready to try the trip on her own. Monday morning arrived, and before she left, she threw her arms around Mark, her temporary bus-riding companion, her husband, and her best friend. Her eyes filled with tears of gratitude for his loyalty, his patience, and his love.
She said goodbye, and for the first time, they went their separate ways. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…
Each day on her own went perfectly, and Susan had never felt better. She was doing it! She was going to work all by herself.
On Friday morning, Susan took the bus to work as usual.
As she was paying the fare to exit the bus, the driver said, “Boy, I sure do envy you.”
Susan wasn’t sure if the driver was speaking to her or not. After all, who on earth would ever envy a blind woman who had struggled just to find the courage to live for the past year?
Curious, she asked the driver, “Why do you say that you envy me?”
The driver responded, “It must feel good to be taken care of and protected like you are.”
Susan had no idea what the driver was talking about and asked again, “What do you mean?”
The driver answered, “You know, every morning for the past week, a fine-looking gentleman in a military uniform has been standing across the corner watching you as you get off the bus. He makes sure you cross the street safely, and he watches until you enter your office building. Then he blows you a kiss, gives you a little salute and walks away. You are one lucky lady.”
Tears of happiness poured down Susan’s cheeks. Although she couldn’t physically see him, she had always felt Mark’s presence. She was lucky, so lucky, for he had given her a gift more powerful than sight, a gift she didn’t need to see to believe – the gift of love that can bring light where there is darkness. source: inspirationallovestories
