Love is not the big gestures. It is the tiny things: the smile from your partner, the nudge when you have been caught unawares and the unexpected hugs.
It is also rushed weddings so you can jump straight into your happily ever after.
A woman on Twitter identified as @10yroldad narrated how she and her partner Jonathon planned their wedding in just seven days.
It was simply because they could not wait a day more to be together.
Jonathon was on a wheelchair but the event was still magical, unbelievable and whimsical.
He received the bad news that his cancer had gone from bad to worse and decided that his greatest wish would be to marry the love of his life.
They smiled through the pain during their ceremony and Jonathon was determined to make an honest woman out of his fair lady.
He had on a well-tailored suit and held his wife’s bouquet as she wheeled him down the aisle.
It was different but still special in every kind of way.
The couple’s family and friends had mixed emotions.
They laughed with so much happiness and cried too because life had given them both lemons and lemonades.
But it was okay, it was all okay because the couple knew that love would heal them and grant them peace they had never felt before.
“Yes, the wedding happened in seven days because it was Jon’s wish and Make A Wish was able to help us because of our circumstances. We have known each other for three and a half years,” @10yroldad wrote.
Jonathon has been battling cancer for three years and things got worse a month ago.
YEN.com.gh had shared a similar story of a lady named Hanson who was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer at the age of 25 in July 2017.
She noted that the hardship made her grow closer with her boyfriend as a couple.
The pair ended up getting married almost two years to the date after Hanson began aggressive treatment for her breast cancer.
They became engaged on Hanson’s last day of chemo and were treated to the wedding of their dreams free of charge.
