Chasmine Banks, Petty Officer 3rd Class, was getting ready to be released to return home when she had a fun idea. She wanted to make her homecoming a surprise to her son Gabriel. She came up with the great idea to surprise him at his school in the middle of class.
Chasmine has bee deployed in West Africa for 10 months and was really excited to come home. All she wanted to do was hug her son. As Chasmine walked into Gabriel's classroom, Gabriel immediately locked eyes with her and ran and jumped into her arms.
He was so thrilled to see his mama. Chasmine also noticed that Gabriel had gotten a lot taller. She was so thankful to be able to finally squeeze her sweet little boy. What a beautiful memory for Gabriel to cherish forever! Who else was tearing up after watching this?
Love is a beautiful thing. But love between a little boy and his pet cat. . .now that’s just adorable! And this precious pair is proof that God has a purpose for all of His creatures.
You see, Larry -- a large, orange cat -- was abandoned by his original owner. But a kindhearted woman named Michelle took him in.
Just a few months later, Michelle learned she was pregnant. And as it turns out, God had brought Larry into her life for a very special reason...to serve as a furry guardian angel to her son Abel.
“From the minute Abel came home, Larry was in love,” says Michelle.
And the feeling was mutual. Since day one, baby Abel has been in love with his fur-baby, Larry.
Larry was the cause of Abel’s first smiles and giggles. At 9 months, Larry was Abel’s first word, although the little boy pronounced it “Yarry” at first.
And as Abel continues to grow, so does the bond between these two.
If Abel cries, Michelle says that Larry runs to his side to comfort him. As Abel moves from room to room, he makes sure his ginger bestie is right by his side.
Their friendship brings a smile to all who see it. But it also is a beautiful reminder of the special purpose God gives to all of us, whether we walk on two legs or four!
Larry, who was abandoned and homeless, has now found a love like he’s never known. And Abel has a special friendship that he will remember and cherish for his entire life. God clearly meant for these two to come together!
