Hours before the wedding, the groom finds a letter from his mother in his jacket and in his pocket

Today’s story is about a man who found a note from his mother in his jacket pocket a few hours before the wedding and he couldn’t cry as soon as he read it.

Cal Bamford was restless in his bed. He has been trying to sleep for an hour, but seems to have other plans for sleep. What are you doing tomorrow The man sighed and cursed himself with his face on the pillow. You have to sleep! What would Camilla think if she saw you upset on your wedding day?

But after about an hour, Kale did not sleep. Finally he sat down, pulled out the family album from the side drawer, and began flipping through the photos, reminiscent of the old days.

His father David died in a car accident when he was just 5 years old. David ran a small grocery store, and they didn’t make much money then. The family is already struggling and her father’s death destroys her mother Lillian, but she never shows her pain to her son and tries her best to raise him.

When he turned 18, he did several things to get him into college. The store was still there, but it wasn’t enough for her to study.

So the old woman multiplied the number of jobs and saved every penny, promising to help her son realize his dream of becoming a software engineer. And Kale, like the good boy, did not disappoint his mother.

He worked hard and graduated from New York University with a bachelor’s degree. At the end of his senior year in college, he also received several promising offers.

However, Lillian’s health is not good at this time. She didn’t tell her son because he didn’t want her to worry. So when Kale returns to his Florida home one day, he is surprised to find his mother almost lifeless in bed.

He immediately called a doctor who told him the sad news: Lillian was suffering from Alzheimer’s. The disease was still in its infancy, but its condition was rapidly deteriorating due to lack of self-care.

Calek is advised to transfer her to a nursing home where she will be cared for, but she refuses to do so. She tried to take care of her mother the way she did and took time to do it. However, nothing has changed. Lillian’s condition worsened to the point that she no longer recognized her own son.

Kale was frightened to see his mother in this condition and decided to transfer her to an old age home. However, he does not want to leave her alone, so he takes her to New York and finds her a home there.

Thus three years passed, and fortunately Lillian’s condition did not deteriorate, but she still had those moments when she forgot everything, including Kale.

One day, Kale took his girlfriend Camilla to see his mother. They had just started dating, and when Lillian met Camilla, her eyes lit up. More surprisingly, he recognized Kale that day. But on their next visit, it was the same story again, Lillian announcing that she had no son.

A few years later, Cale and Camilla were already engaged and they went to see Lillian to invite her to their wedding. But the poor woman did not recognize the two of them and kept asking how they knew her.

Kale left the nursing home crying. “What am I going to do, Camilla? Mom doesn’t even recognize us! And the wedding is just two days away!”

“That’s right, darling,” Camilla comforted him. “I have an idea if you want your mother to attend our wedding.”

Camilla advised the two of them to get married. One with all the guests because they had already sent invitations, and the other with close family members later at the church near the retirement home, in the hope that Lillian would recognize them then. At least and will bless her.

It was already 4 o’clock in the morning and Kale could not think of her mother. Her wedding was within hours, so she closed the photo album, closed her eyes, and forced herself to sleep until the sound of the doorbell woke her up.

He got up, rubbed his eyes and walked slowly towards the door. It was seven o’clock in the morning and a delivery man was standing outside with a package from his mother’s nursing home. Kale quickly opened the current package and discovered a beautiful dress inside.

Did mom send it to me? Did she finally remember that it was my wedding day? Kale jumped up, cheered, and ran to the mirror to try on the dress. However, as soon as he put on the jacket, he noticed a strange bump in his pocket.

He slipped into his coat pocket and found a letter inside. “Please open it before your wedding,” read the top. Kale recognized her mother’s handwriting and immediately started reading the letter.

“Dear Kale,” the letter begins. “I’m glad you found someone of your choice, but I warn you … it will not be easy for you to move forward with the idea of ​​marriage. So I am writing to you. This letter is too late.”

“First of all, a wonderful wedding, my son. I came across your wedding invitation today. Thank you for leaving it with the nurse. I really want to see you get married, no matter if I recognize you or not. The nurse here thinks so. That it is a miracle that I remember seeing the wedding invitation. I want this miracle to last a little longer so that I can remember everything.

“But no matter what, remember that I am always with you. Please love and take care of your wife. Marriage is a sacred relationship, but it is not a bed, there will be ups and downs, but in a relationship, understanding each other. For the heart is the most important.

“My son, do not forget that you now have not only a wife and a beloved woman, but the most precious treasure. So try to help her; she is a fragile woman who may seem strong from the outside, but like everyone else.” , Even her support is needed. And please don’t argue about trivial things like money. Money is not more important than love and relationship.

“Love your wife, try to understand her and appreciate her. When she looks at you with love in her eyes, look at her with the same feeling. Every quarrel, like every hurtful word, has the potential to pierce the heart. Let her come and destroy your family. Do not chase after other women; you have decided to chase her, so do not look back and be not the man of her dreams. I hope you will be a wonderful person. , Mother. “
