Don’t Hope,… Decide!

in Marriage, Motivational stories

While waiting to pick up a friend at the airport in Portland, Oregon, I had one of those life-changing experiences that you hear other people talk about — the kind that sneaks up on you unexpectedly. This one occurred a mere two feet away from me.

Straining to locate my friend among the passengers deplaning through the jet way, I noticed a man coming toward me carrying two light bags. He stopped right next to me to greet his family.

First he motioned to his youngest son (maybe six years old) as he laid down his bags. They gave each other a long, loving hug. As they separated enough to look in each other’s face, I heard the father say, “It’s so good to see you, son. I missed you so much!” His son smiled somewhat shyly, averted his eyes and replied softly, “Me, too, Dad!”

Then the man stood up, gazed in the eyes of his oldest son (maybe nine or ten) and while cupping his son’s face in his hands said, “You’re already quite the young man. I love you very much, Zach!” They too hugged a most loving, tender hug.

While this was happening, a baby girl (perhaps one or one-and-a-half) was squirming excitedly in her mother’s arms, never once taking her little eyes off the wonderful sight of her returning father. The man said, “Hi, baby girl!” as he gently took the child from her mother. He quickly kissed her face all over and then held her close to his chest while rocking her from side to side. The little girl instantly relaxed and simply laid her head on his shoulder, motionless in pure contentment.

After several moments, he handed his daughter to his oldest son and declared, “I’ve saved the best for last!” and proceeded to give his wife the longest, most passionate kiss I ever remember seeing. He gazed into her eyes for several seconds and then silently mouthed. “I love you so much!” They stared at each other’s eyes, beaming big smiles at one another, while holding both hands.

For an instant they reminded me of newlyweds, but I knew by the age of their kids that they couldn’t possibly be. I puzzled about it for a moment then realized how totally engrossed I was in the wonderful display of unconditional love not more than an arm’s length away from me. I suddenly felt uncomfortable, as if I was invading something sacred, but was amazed to hear my own voice nervously ask, “Wow! How long have you two been married?

“Been together fourteen years total, married twelve of those.” he replied, without breaking his gaze from his lovely wife’s face. “Well then, how long have you been away?” I asked. The man finally turned and looked at me, still beaming his joyous smile. “Two whole days!”

Two days? I was stunned. By the intensity of the greeting, I had assumed he’d been gone for at least several weeks – if not months. I know my expression betrayed me.

I said almost offhandedly, hoping to end my intrusion with some semblance of grace (and to get back to searching for my friend), “I hope my marriage is still that passionate after twelve years!”

The man suddenly stopped smiling.

He looked me straight in the eye, and with forcefulness that burned right into my soul, he told me something that left me a different person. He told me, “Don’t hope, friend… decide!” Then he flashed me his wonderful smile again, shook my hand and said, “God bless!”

10. Pepsi — January 26, 2010 at 8:50 am

Well, not everything will go the way we planned. we may decide to do sth, but that sth may turn out to be sth else. however, it’s good if we make decision to do sth our best, regardless of what the outcome would be.

11. Purva — February 6, 2010 at 10:27 am

48. Gaurav_Luthra — August 20, 2011 at 9:46 am

49. Charles Umeh — August 25, 2011 at 11:15 pm

An expression of the inner you without being scared of the way its perceived. Is the height of it. Beautiful~

50. Rise — September 16, 2011 at 3:03 pm

To hope is to be disappointed, it gets you nowhere, only leaves more worry and stress. To act and decide is the best thing to do, if you decide to try your best at everything you do with full determination and commitment is the best way to win.

I find to have hope is not to have full confidence in your abilities, you aren’t confident you will succeed.

51. Odwera — September 18, 2011 at 9:47 am

Wonderful story.

52. Jo — September 19, 2011 at 2:49 am

Fabulous! ! ! What a great moral. . . I’ve learned my lesson for today. . I am actually in a state of great nervousness the moment I am reading this because this would be the day I am going to be taking in calls in my current job. I am a new hire here and so It is quite stressful. But because of this message, not related to love though, but I’ve made up my mind that I am going to give my best to the calls I am going to be taking in today, I am not just going to hope. . I have made up my mind. . I have to make it. :)

57. Nancy — October 28, 2011 at 7:13 am

I have decided here and now to keep the light of love aglow in my marriage no matter how years we have lived together. May God give me the grace…AMEN

Thank you for such a well written article!

“You must take care of love, otherwise it goes bad!” it was said by a 6-year old girl that appeared in the Reader’s Digest many years ago! I have been following this ‘mantra’ in our 36 years of married life and still going so crispy! It means the same – decide and act! How would you ‘take care of love’ is upon you, one has to be unique and industrious!

101. Niranjana — June 23, 2012 at 8:39 am

104. Sandra — July 20, 2012 at 9:54 pm

This is such a great story. There is faith, hope, love but the greatest of these is love.

105. Malathi — July 21, 2012 at 12:18 am

Truly inspirational.

Relevant in every situation in life, be it love, making any difficult situation easy, achieving any of your goals w/o hoping but deciding to achieve.

What a wonderful way to make your loved ones happy irrespective of their imperfections, just like in this story which would certainly make you happy as well or even making not-so-loved ones happy so that it will eventually transform them to be your loved ones.

Way to go!

132. Deepthi — October 29, 2012 at 9:58 am

I never had a loving husband.. Atleast I am happy to see a best pair ever .. and felt the warmth..

133. Rekha — November 5, 2012 at 4:13 am

Wow!! fabulous story
So finally I have decided that what I have to do in my life :)
not hoping

134. An Optimist — November 16, 2012 at 6:44 am

I still think without hope you can’t decide to have happiness. So the man shouldn’t have stopped the dreamer from hoping :)

135. Marvin — November 20, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Yeah, I love it…… I hope all the couples will be like this..!!!!

136. Ashok — November 21, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Lovely one. I decide to have such by God’s grace.

138. Coleman — November 29, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I’m glad I chose to stop and read this. Very good brother!

I love it when God speaks to you through life events like this.

139. Rita Borg — November 29, 2012 at 10:37 pm

This is the third time I read it. Each time it inspires me and keep me decide and do the best I can.

I like #50 rise’s comment, it makes sense. That has been my problem hard to decide. Always hoping things will change. You have to work on being confident first and be self assure then decide and move on, and share your love.

These morals stories are incredible. Thank you.

140. Harsha — December 3, 2012 at 12:37 pm

The writer must have seen my real life experience and wrote the story, so guys don’t hope just decide.

141. Eseem — December 13, 2012 at 5:22 am

Wow!!! I must confess that I don’t know the right WORD 2 use in describing this story. It’s more than being SPLENDID. I hope 4 such endless love.

152. Edukondalu — February 20, 2013 at 5:02 am

I decided 4 such endless love. I am not married still. :)

Hmm, so sweet, yet so unreal, I wish I would have a man love me like this, I am more than ready to love this way, but have not found a man to love me this way. I think this kind of love is long gone.

I like this story, is really motivating and inspiring! I can’t wait to share this passion with someone in the future!

@Jewel ify
It isn’t “unreal” my dear friend. I’m sure God is preparing someone for you. Just keep your fingers crossed that He will give you the guy that is worthy of your love. Believe in Faith! <-:

Wow….!!! An awesome story of expressing your true love.

157. EquusSupreme — March 13, 2013 at 9:46 am

Damn! I just had a short burst of argument with my beautiful pregnant wife, and as I tried to vent off my anger through work, I encountered the story. Made my temper dropped down so fast, I know I am like the father in the story, it is a pleasure to constantly make my wife feel loved, but tonight I felt I was not valued, got so up-set I said things to my wife I regretted. I have DECIDED to make things well by tomorrow, when things get cooler. God, you are just so WONDERFUL.

It’s amazing, he is really emotional intelligent and he knows the importance of his family .. I loved the part when he said “I’ve saved the best for the last.”

159. Lino — March 25, 2013 at 1:18 am

Wow!!! It shows unselfish family ties. What a wonderful family.

160. Georgefun — March 31, 2013 at 10:16 pm

Similar to what my mother said just before she passed away. “I’ve learned that people are as happy as they decide they’re gonna be”

A lesson about the story is that “Love is not all about emotions but it’s a decision” :)

I thought while reading this story that he left his family by 1 year but after I read I really feel very happy.. I will forever ever remember this moral and I will decide to love anyone like this.
