First and foremost I would like to say I am glad to be back. It has been awhile but I am glad to be here again to share “We are the World Blogfest” (#WATWB ) post. The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit. Each month I bring to you the We Are the World Blogfest, along with these fabulous co-hosts: Lizbeth Hartz, https://authorlizbethhartz.com/blog/, Peter Nena https://drkillpatient01.wordpress.com, Shilpa Garg, http://shilpaagarg.com, Roshan Radhakrishnan https://www.godyears.net/ and I am Sylvia Stein, https://ssteinwriting.wordpress.com so happy to be back to #WATWB.
For this month my story comes from Human kind Stories which are told through USA Today and also on Facebook.com The story I chose is the one entitled, Nurses Staff create perfect wedding in Hospital which came out on July 11, 2020.
Basically, this is the story of Grace who’s father Paul became very ill due to Brain Surgery and Grace had already planned her wedding and did not want her father missing out on her big day. As Paul tells his story, he said that through the course of him having Brain surgery it was also discovered that he had Leukemia.
So therefore Grace and her fiancé Christian decided to move the Wedding up since her father was to ill to make it. Paul stated, ” I would get to walk her down the aisle which has been one of my dreams as a dad and as her dad especially.” Initially he stated that both him and Grace she would have the wedding at the hospital.
However a Nurse overheard what was happening and decided to take action and Paul stated, ” Everyday my wife would get a call that someone else had volunteered to bring flowers, do make up, catering, photography, Everything.”
He added, ” Next thing we know we had a full blown wedding.” Then on the day of the wedding hospital staff even came to the wedding.
As he continues he stated that it was really nice as they walked down the aisles they didn’t know that they were about 100 employees and it was a nice surprise lining the hallways.
” It was huge so much more than we could’ve ever thought.” Christian added, ” It was the best decision I ever made in my life.” Then Paul adds with his daughter Grace by his side, ” I would have to agree because there is no one better than my daughter.”
In conclusion, I love this story because it is about a daughter and the love for her father and how all the Nurses and staff came together for them. I am also happy to add that Paul is on the road to recovery and he not only gained a son in law but a hospital family and he added, ” I have never been a cynical guy but this restored my faith in humanity.” My thoughts were if only we could spread more of this message of Love how wonderful that would be.
