I’m not an avid American Idol fan, but I didn’t have to watch the show to see the amazing story of one of the auditioners, Chris Medina. The alarm went off on Thursday morning and I heard the story from the radio DJs. I opened the free daily paper only to see a little blurb next to his photo. And then later that evening, I finally got to witness the remarkable Mr. Medina and the Power of Love. If you haven’t yet seen nor heard this story, here it is. Do me a favor and watch this video. Let yourself be reminded of the important things in life and inspired by those special people who live by example.
I don’t want to take too much about from these beautiful people and their story about true love. However, I’ve watched this segment twice now- with chills both times- and one thought keeps coming to mind: Isn’t this how love is supposed to be? Yes, Chris is A*MAY*ZING. That cannot be argued. But when you love someone, shouldn’t you already be committed to in sickness and in health? When you love someone, really love someone, don’t you want to be by their side on the good days and the bad? Wedding or not, aren’t these vows that you willingly stand by when you love someone? Isn’t this what love is all about?
My hope is that you’ll let Chris & Julie’s story inspire you and remind how true love should always be. ♥
