Love is a wonderful emotion, that can make people very happy. People experience love in different ways, but not everyone gets to experience it in their lives. Some people remain alone for their entire lives, hoping to find true love.
But today’s story is special. There was a man named Winston Howes and his dear wife Jeanette, who were married for 33 years. Their neighbors were amazed by their strong connection. They never argued, unlike other couples, and were a shining example of pure love.
Unfortunately, their love story ended prematurely when Jeanette unexpectedly passed away. Winston was deeply saddened by his wife’s loss and wanted to do something to honor her memory. He came up with the idea of planting oak trees.
His neighbors believed that Winston was planting trees just to keep himself busy and avoid thinking about his wife. They didn’t pay much attention to his gardening project. However, they didn’t realize the significance of his idea. There was a piece of land near their home where Winston planted nearly 6,000 oak trees.
It wasn’t until 20 years later that one of his neighbors saw the incredible result while flying in a hot air balloon. Winston had created a heart-shaped clearing in the middle of the trees, and there he planted beautiful daffodils.
Winston might have done this with the hope that his beloved wife would see it from heaven. Stories like this remind us of the most wonderful feeling in the world: love.
