Husband Vows to Paint 1 Nail for the Rest of His Life—When She Opens Her Hand, I Got Chills

In a Facebook post shared by Love What Matters, Libby Sanders shares a moment with her husband that is melting the hearts of women everywhere. She was painting her nails with her hubby one day when she made a simple comment that inspired him to make the sweetest lifetime commitment.

It takes a second to soak it in, but this side-by-side picture says it ALL.
She shared:

This is who I married…

I was painting my nails and made a comment that I forget I don’t have to paint my pinky nail on my left hand. I simply forget that I lost my pinky, but it is always kind of a bummer when I am reminded. Matt said, ‘I will be your surrogate pinky. You can paint my pinky to match your nails for the rest of our lives.’

And so we did…

I cannot imagine a sweeter, kinder man. No words adequately describe our love.

Surrogate pinky? Seriously, can it even get any sweeter than that?! You can’t help but gush over a guy who’s willing to set his macho manliness aside to girlify his hand just to see his wife’s smile.

Now that’s the good stuff right there. Simple sacrifice at its finest with just a touch of teal and a promise that goes so much further than nail-deep. 😉
