Ready to have your heart melted? The following people show that love truly knows no boundaries, whether in age, in circumstance, or even across species.
Love is so powerful that you don’t need to say it, all you need is to feel it.
Start Them Out Young
“It’s my son’s first kidding season. I think he is going to be a great goat farmer.”
This kid’s future already looks bright. Whether he decides to take up the family farming business or go on his own path, you can tell he will be loved.
No One Likes Doctor’s Appointments
“My husband comforting our kitten at the vet”
Or is it the other way around? It looks like they’re both comforting each other. It’s just as worrisome seeing your loved pet await their fate.
Nothing Hurts Like Goodbyes
“Hadn’t seen each other since daycare closed, parents arranged a playdate. This is when it was time to leave”
Love has no age boundaries. Whether you’re a toddler or an elder you can’t help but form it for those around you.
One Size Fits All
“My sister made a sweater for Spaghetti…I think he loves it. I just kinda put his head in one end and he just wiggles to the other end on his own.
“I hold the sweater in place while he works his way down. He stops just before his head pops out the other end and just chills in it. Then after a few minutes, he’ll pop his head out.”
Nothing Can Stand In The Way Of Love
“He comes to talk to his dad every day since the nursing home is on lockdown”
This is proof that no barrier can get in the way of love. If you want to show someone you love them, there is no obstacle you can’t figure out a way around.
Find Someone Who Looks At You Like You’re The Only One In The Room
“When you get to bring your dog to work and she reminds you that you’re her favorite person.”
Find someone who looks at you like that dog looks at their owner. That’s the look of true love and loyalty.
Love Is Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone
“Having a daughter means you have to encourage her interests and step out of your comfort zone. Not only to make her a better person, but also to make yourself better. These moments are the moments that she will remember forever!”
Better As A Surprise
“I was trying to get a picture of me and my little boy under this amazing rainbow in small town Kansas. Right when I went to take the picture, he tapped me on my shoulder for a surprise Eskimo kiss.”
Never Too Old To Find Someone To Love You
“We adopted an 11-year old cat from a Chicago shelter. He and my 13-yo daughter fell in love. This is them after she got back from a week at camp.”
Senior kitties need to be loved just as much as the little kittens!
A Promise Is A Promise
“I promised my three-year-old last night that I would make pancakes this morning. Woke up to the power out, but a promise is a promise.”
Extra points for creativity as well, because who knew you could make pancakes on a BBQ?
Best Friends Forever
“My 101-year-old grandfather threw a 100th birthday party for his best friend, Bob.”
Never too old to party! Really, the more you age, the more you have to celebrate for having lived another year full of learning, new experiences, and shared relationships.
No Job Is Too Small
“Our school lunch lady made this Christmas display by hand.”
It’s quite beautiful to see how the lunch lady didn’t limit herself to her role and used her talents to go above and beyond to show her love for the students.
No One Compares To Grandmas
“She took me in 15 years ago, and no one makes me as happy. We had the best Xmas. I love my Granma so much.”
When it comes down to it, happiness is about the relationships you create and the love you give and receive through them.
The True Spirit Of Christmas
“If you are alone, pop in for a hug and a mince pie! You don’t have to buy anything. We are family.”
Imagine if everyone in the world put out this kind of kindness and love for strangers; the world would really be a better place.
When Feeling Lonely, Dial The Cuddle Button
“This little heart on my hand is called a ‘cuddle button.’ Since my wife died last year, my 4y/o daughter has hated being away from me.
“Her teacher draws this on both our hands when I drop her off at school, and every time we press it, it sends a hug to the other. It helps her feel connected to me.”
All You Need Is Creativity
“I turned my son’s wheelchair into a digger for Halloween! He absolutely loves it, and luckily, his grandma was able to bring it to school for him so he could wear it all day.”
That First Catch
“Was making a fire in the pit when I heard ‘DADA I GOT ONE! I GOT ONE! ALL BY MYSELF!!!
“Turned to see my little man valiantly fighting this bugger in with his Dock Demon. Was his first catch that I didn’t cast out for him. The joy in his face keeps me going.”
Fairytales Really Do Come True
“My buddy cosplaying Jasmine and the Genie with his daughter.”
Who says fairytales are only about princes falling in love with princesses? The real lesson is that true love conquers all in the same way this man loves his daughter.
Could That Dog Possibly Look More Infatuated?
“My husband-to-be and my doggo have this great thing going on.”
The dog kind of looks like a girl taking a picture at a party with her boyfriend who lets her because he loves her and not because he actually wants to be in the picture.
It’s Obvious Who’s The Favorite Here
“Husband said he was going to make a bed frame. I thought it was for our new mattress…. It was for the cat.”
The best part is that it comes with its own matching bedside table too.
A Little Help Goes A Long Way
“Every year, this mama duck brings her babies to my house and I help her take care of them. This morning I opened my door to 13 new peeping fluff balls.”
Clearly, love transcends species too.
Two Peas In A Pond
“My son has loved my cat since the day he was born. She tolerates that love in a way I never thought possible.”
And they say cats only love on their terms?
Best Salon In Town
“My girls opened up a salon.”
Dads like this need to be cherished. It’s a great way to unleash the child’s creativity without giving too much focus to beauty standards or gender norms.
A Dad And A Mom All In One
“My dad would give me a ‘señorita’ half-up style and it was my favorite. Who says dads can’t be moms too?”
Just like moms can fill the role normally reserved for a dad!
Love Doesn’t Need To Be Seen
“My mother was born blind. Every year, I hand braille her cards so she can read them!”
This just goes to show that love is all about how it makes you feel. Not what you see or what you hear.
Some Memories Are Meant To Be Treasured Forever
“First tattoo, and decided to get my favorite picture with my son.”
Instead of carrying a baby photo in his wallet that can get lost or ripped, now this dad has the photo forever. How amazing will it be when he shows to his son’s future wife?
Here Comes The Bride
“I love my father-in-law’s reaction to seeing my wife on our wedding day.”
If this was the father-in-law’s reaction, I can only imagine what her actual father’s and husband’s reactions were like.
You Don’t Forget True Love
“As my grandpa’s Alzheimers progresses, he can’t quite remember who my grandma is, but you can tell that he still loves her. Here he is teasing by pretending to fall asleep on her.”
Every Princess Needs Her Knight
“She was worried she’d be the only one dressed up….”
Knights in shining armor come in all forms, and sometimes they come in dad form. It should be noted that these costumes also look like they’re top-notch quality. They went all-out.
An Act Of Solidarity
“One year anniversary of shaving my head for my mom I lost to cancer.”
This is a beautiful commemorative act, and she looks beautiful either way. Love never dies, even when it’s for someone who is no longer with us.
