Welcome to Mamamia’s good news post.
The world can seem pretty bleak sometimes and we’ve decided to create a happy place where you’ll receive nothing but the awesome and lovely things people are doing from around the world.
This is a photo of a couple, John Allen and Linda Alexander, sitting in Starbucks. It's just like any other date, except John is helping Linda to relearn the alphabet. Linda lost much of her memory when she suffered a major stroke and brain damage, and John is determined for her to regain her skills. Six mornings a week, the couple head to Starbucks for a drink and a reading lesson. Fellow customer, Matthew Ballestero, was so moved by this display of love and dedication that he decided to share this image and their story on Reddit. Unsurprisingly, it has touched the hearts of thousands.
