Man Proposes To Two Ladies On the Same Day Leaving the Internet in Tears!

Published

on

When Grant Tribbett woke up on the morning of Saturday, May 27, he was ready to propose twice: once to his girlfriend, Cassandra Reschar, and once to her little girl. While some wedding proposals can go terribly wrong, this one really did play out flawlessly. It was downright perfect.

According to Reschar’s How He Asked post, the couple met through Facebook around seven months ago. “As a single mom, it was always a nightmare trying to date as I have full custody of my daughter and very little ‘me’ time,” she wrote. But the two hit it off after they started messaging back and forth, a conversation prompted by Tribbett’s comment about one of her statuses (bold move).

They tackled obstacles such as distance, but, as Reschar wrote, “…with all the life challenges that were brought our way, we have only come out stronger and more in love with one another.” She continued, “I have gotten to witness an attractive, charming bachelor become a positive, loving and utterly the most selfless father to my little girl.” The week of the proposal, Tribbett suggested his future fiancé get her nails done. Then, the morning of the big day, he took her and her daughter Adrianna to breakfast, then to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve not far from where they live in Indiana.

After walking a mile (in heels, no less, Reschar added), he got down on one knee for what she described as one of the best moments of her life. What came next shocked both Reschar and her daughter: Tribbett popped the quintessential question to Adrianna. “He said, ‘Adrianna can I be your daddy, to promise to love and protect you for the rest of your life?'” Reschar wrote in her post.

The girl’s response? A bewildered, “Thank you!” (“She has always been raised to use her manners when given a gift,” added her mother.) Reschar recounted that her fiancé asked Adrianna, “‘Is that a yes or no sweetheart?’ [to which] she replied, ‘YES!’ and then screaming with joy she said, ‘I FINALLY GET A DADDY MOMMY, I FINALLY GET A DADDY!'”

Tribbett presented Adrianna with a heart-pendant necklace, which, according to Reschar, was a symbol that her daughter “now carries a piece of his heart with her.” (Cue the tears.) “I knew before our first date that Cassandra was a full-time, devoted single mom,” Tribbett said. “Honestly, it was one of the many qualities she has that captured my heart. As we moved forward in our relationship, it only became that much more apparent that these two were the missing pieces in my life.”

“I knew proposing to Cassandra, that I also would be committing to a lifetime of fatherhood,” he continued. “So what better way to ask the love of my life to marry me, than to ask her beloved daughter to get the honor to be her daddy?” Friend and professional photographer, Mandi Gilliland of Mandi Gilliland Photography, captured the moving exchange.

“I’ve known Cassandra for about five years now, watching the ups and downs of [her] being a single parent and so desperately wanting a family and a father for Adrianna,” Gilliland told GoodHousekeeping.com. “Once Grant reached out to me and expressed what he wanted to do for Cassandra and Adrianna, I was beyond ecstatic! He truly stepped up and has loved [Cassandra’s] daughter as if he had been doing it for his entire life.”

“It was such an honor getting to capture this for her, and I cannot think of anyone more deserving!” she continued. The Knot shared Reschar’s How He Asked post on Facebook, and people everywhere are just as touched as we are.

“Omg! Tears are flowing! It takes a man to step up and take care of kids that are not his own and bring them into his heart and life and say, ‘You’re my child, and I’ll love you and protect you ’til I die!'” commented one user. “Every time I read this, I love your story more!” wrote another.

“My daughter and I both got our fairy tale ending,” Reschar concluded her How He Asked post. One thing’s for sure, Tribbett didn’t just land the princess of his dreams, he landed two.

Fedex Driver Shovels Snow Off Woman’s Porch When He Learns Her Husband Recently Died

Published

on

Leigh Anne’s husband had just passed away after fighting cancer for seven months at the age of 42. This left her with three young children to raise on her own as a single mother and widow.

In the middle of winter, after a pretty nasty snowstorm, the cold had deflated her tyres. Leigh Anne tried putting air back in her tires but found it too hard to remove the cap on her tyres, meaning she could not be able to refill them. Luckily she noticed Brian making a nearby call.

Brian is a friendly local delivery driver with FedEx who she had seen around her neighborhood and had even delivered a few packages to Leigh Anne a couple of times before.

Brian was happy and kind enough to help out with her tyres. As the two were chatting, Brian got to learn of Leigh Anne’s heartbroken state and her husband’s recent death.

Brian knew he had to do something to help her out. There was enough pain and stress in her life already, and there was just a small something he could do to make things a little better for her.

After helping Leigh Anne fix her car tyres and helping her back into her house, the FedEx driver quickly grabbed a shovel and got to work. He had noticed all the snow covering her porch and decided to help.

The doorbell camera captured Brian’s act of kindness, as he shovelled the snow off Leigh Anne’s porch and pathway to help her out. “Doorbell cameras don’t only catch people stealing packages,” Leigh Anne wrote on Facebook.

Brian’s kindness and thoughtfulness melted the hearts of thousands who saw the footage after it was shared on social media. God bless this man.

Framed Photo Of Lord’s Prayer Stops Bullet Fired Into Home

An elderly Kansas woman says it’s a miracle that she and her husband are alive after a bullet was fired into her home, all thanks to a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that saved them both.

Constance Effie said she had just sat down to watch some television in the living room of her Kansas City home when she heard an explosion-like sound. Her husband was also home at the time.

“All of a sudden ‘boom.’ I thought I was in a war zone because that was the loudest noise I ever heard,” Effie told WDAF.

The seventy year old woman said she then realized that someone had opened fire outside, leading to one of the bullets flying into her house. But instead of hitting her, the bullet hit a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that was hanging only two feet above her head.

“We looked all around and didn’t see a hole anywhere. I thought, ‘Look, that picture, the glass is all broken,'” she said. “It hit [the picture] and fell down behind [the couch]. But if it didn’t have the metal, it probably would’ve come on in and hit one of us.”

Effie believes God blocked the bullet from hurting them. She said the next day she had to be taken to the hospital where doctors told her that she had suffered a minor heart attack because of the scary ordeal.

“I was afraid after the near-death incident. I kept thinking I don’t want any more shooting,” Effie said, adding she constantly hears gunshots in her neighborhood. “The doctors said it looked like it was a stress heart attack but that it was a small one.”

“We’re lucky to be alive, and we’re happy,” Effie said. “We just hope and pray they understand not to do this anymore.”

Kansas City police are still investigating the shooting and have not identified the suspects yet.
