We think you might need this post today. If you’re finding the return to the working week a little tough, if you’re having a sad or difficult time at the moment – this post is going to make it all better.

And even if you’re not struggling, even if you think you’re having a BRILLIANT day… you’re not.

Because you haven’t read this post yet.

In the gallery below, you’ll find 5 mini love stories from the website Makes Me Think. It’s where people go to post the stories that keep their worlds turning – and there are some beautiful, immediate-tear-to-the-eye-bringing, stomach-wrenching stories there.

The best thing is that all the stories are captured in two sentences or less. It’s like a bite-size version of The Notebook.

Be prepared with tissues.

(FYI –  The MMT at the end of each story stands for “Makes me think”.)

And now it’s your turn to post your mini love story. The story of a moment that encapsulates your relationship with your husband, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your son, your daughter, your grandparent, your mum, your pet Labrador, your neighbour, Ryan Gosling – anyone.

Post two stories if you like.

Post a hundred.

There’s not enough love in the world as it is, so the more love here – the merrier.

I’ll start:

Today I drove home, parked my car in the driveway, took my shoes off by the front door and went upstairs to my room. My grandmother came upstairs to find me and said, “Natalia, my three favourite things in life are: your car, your shoes, and you. Seeing all three of them means that you’re home and safe.”

What’s your mini love story?
