A young couple was newly married and full of dreams for their future together. Matt and Danielle Davis had been married for just seven months when tragedy struck. Matt, a motorcycle enthusiast, was involved in a horrific crash that left him clinging to life, relying on the marvels of medical science and the unwavering love of his wife.
The doctors, assessing Matt’s condition, believed there was no hope for recovery. Nine days after the accident, they suggested to Danielle that she should “pull the plug” on his life support machine and allow him to pass peacefully. They even told her that if they were in her place, they’d want their families to do the same. But Danielle, a woman of great faith, refused to accept their advice. She believed that God still had plans for her beloved husband, and she was determined to give him the chance to live.
It became obvious that Matt couldn’t remain in the hospital indefinitely as the days stretched into weeks. He was ultimately moved back home, where Danielle and her mother became his permanent caregivers. Matt should have the most breathtaking view possible, according to Danielle, and so she told her mother, “If he’s going to be a body in a bed, let’s give him something to look at.”
And then, as if answering her prayers, a miracle occurred. One day, Matt spoke two simple yet powerful words to his wife: “I’m trying.” These words filled Danielle with hope and reaffirmed her belief that her dedication and love would help her husband heal.
From that moment on, Danielle ensured that Matt attended every therapy session available to him. With the aid of an occupational therapist, Matt’s recovery began to progress, slowly but surely, the charming personality that had captured Danielle’s heart was re-emerging, and the couple began to rediscover their love.
One day, Matt, who had been struggling to regain his long-term memory, suddenly recalled his favorite meal – a buffalo chicken wrap from Cheddar’s. It was a small victory, but it signaled that things were turning around for him.
Years after Matt’s fatal motorbike accident, his road to rehabilitation is still ongoing. He still has memory issues and is unable to recall ever dating or wedding Danielle. Before being married, the couple had only been dating for two months, and the accident happened only seven months later. But Matt has never wavered in his gratitude for the life he has been given, and Danielle’s unshakable love and faith have never wavered either.
In their journey together, Matt has learned the importance of cherishing every moment and has a piece of advice for every husband out there: “Dude, take the trash out because there might be a day when you can’t.” It’s a simple reminder that life is precious, and we should never take the ones we love for granted.
And so, Matt and Danielle continue to face life’s challenges, hand in hand, strengthened by their love and the miracle that has given them a second chance at happiness.
