Special meaning to me

This song, and Chris's story has special meaning to me. The words that Chris spoke in his audition video, "What kind of a man would I be if I left her when she needed me most?" were the EXACT WORDS my husband said to someone about me. After suffering from a potentially fatal liver ailment, I had to take medication that made my face yellow & puffy & blown up and I had put on weight. My husband's pretty ex from HS (30 yrs prior) saw my photo on a mutual friend's Facebook and made a very ugly statement to them. "Ugh! What on Earth was Bob THINKING?" The photo was not indicative of the attractive slim woman I once was, but even if I wasn't, judging a person by just their looks is shallow: beauty is only skin deep, and in the eyes of the beholder. An accident or burns from a fire, or becoming ill can change a person's appearance. Do you love someone LESS if their looks change? Or if they get sick? Get cancer and lose their hair? Aren't they the same person inside? My hubby and I got wind of it and we were both very hurt. He was angry. He felt she was shallow to make a statement like that, and said Chris's exact words to me about sticking with someone in sickness and in health; and when he saw her at a funeral, he showed her photos of me and our wonderful successful life together, the beautiful home we had, and told her that he had heard about her hurtful statement. Then he said those very words, "What kind of man wouId I have been to walk away when she needed me most? To leave her just because she got sick and put on weight? When you commit to someone, it's in sickness and health, thru thick and thin. What if if were YOU and YOU got sick? I'm glad I never married you, because you would have abandoned ME if the going got tough..."
And he left her feeling like trash, because she was divorced, in a nowhere job, living with her parents and unhappy. Even her good looks didn't bring her luck or happiness.
CHRIS MEDINA IS A REAL MAN, and a VERY TALENTED ONE AT THAT. He and Juliana have a wonderful love story and I pray her recovery and his SUCCESS. I will buy EVERY ONE OF HIS ALBUMS. Bring em on! Thank you R. Jenkins for writing Chris such an inspiring and uplifting song.
