Even when life is dark, one moment can change everything.
That was beautifully illustrated in a social media post watched over 30 million times in just a few days. The video captures the moment that a marriage was rescued.
In the video, Caitlin and her soon-to-be ex-husband are celebrating their three-year-old son’s birthday. The little boy’s eyes light up when he sees his cake, covered with candles. Then, Caitlin’s husband looks into her eyes … and his eyes lit up, with love for her.
As the video rolls, Caitlin’s words appear on the screen saying, “I could see his love for me all over his face. I had captured the exact moment when I knew we could save our marriage.”
And they did. Caitlin and her husband went to counseling and remain happily married … now with two children.
