The man you see above is named Jim Blades. Six years ago today, Jim saved my life. I was drowning when swimming in a storm. I was getting pulled into deeper water very fast and I knew I was going to die. Jim heard me screaming for help and immediately jumped into the water and started swimming towards me. Jim assured me I would not die and I didn’t but unfortunately, he did. While he was pulling me out he was having a heart attack. He died at the hospital later that morning.
Jim gave me my life. I would not have this amazing life I have now without him.
The second picture is me holding my beautiful baby sister Sophia. I would not have met her if it wasn’t for Jim. Do you see how so many wonderful things can happen in life? We wake up every morning not being thankful for waking up. There is so much to be thankful for. You shouldn’t have to nearly die to realize that. Unfortunately, I was but I am telling you all that you have a beautiful life ahead of you. Please have hope. Be thankful and please; remember this amazing man. I knew him for less than a day and he died for me.
Today is the anniversary of Jim’s death. Please reblog to get his story out there.
Your fellow Bostonian. <3
Do you ever just take a moment to think about how fucking awesome Johnny Depp is
Guys The Fault in Our Stars is on my summer reading list. Maybe there is a god.
He makes me happy. <3
So, this is Jules. Jules and I met about 2 years ago because we went to this theatre camp in the summer. I had been going there for years and it was his first year but anyway, I was dating this awful kid who treated me really poorly when I met Jules so I paid little attention to him. I mean, I thought he was a sweet kid but he didn’t catch my eye.
I saw him a few times every now and then because he’d see shows I was in and I’d see shows he was in and we’d hug and say good job, you were great and so on.
The next summer, we started talking more. I don’t really know why but eventually I found out that he made it his goal to win me over and get me to go on a date with him. Everyone was telling me to do it but I’m a conflicted bitch all the time so I resisted as much as I could but one day, the last day of our camp (arts festival) he came to my house with a bunch of other people and he kissed me and even then I knew I liked him and I was still resisting.
We started dating and we fell in love and I was struggling with being as compassionate and affectionate as I could be and after 6 wonderful months we broke up.
I didn’t realize how much I really loved him until then.
We stopped talking for 2 months.
He dated someone else.
They broke up.
I bumped into him at that same theatre we met in late in April this year and we started talking again. He apologized for being cruel and I apologized for not trying my hardest and we thought we’d be friends but we went into Boston a few weeks ago and he kissed me and it was amazing and I think we both realized that we can’t just be friends. Yesterday we went into Boston and had a picnic in the public gardens and it was beautiful and perfect. We’ll always be more than that. I love him more than anything and I can’t imagine myself ever resisting him again.
I love you, sunshine. (:
