Bo Sanchez grandparents' love story goes viral

Filipino preacher and book author Bo Sanchez says there is forever as the incredible love story of his grandparents goes viral on Facebook.

Hashtagged "eternal love" and "may forever," his July 17 post reads:

This beautiful woman is Magdalena. Let me tell you her incredible love story.

When she was a young woman, Magdalena had a suitor named Tomas. But Magdalena's parents rejected him because he was too Pinoy. Because Magdalena's family was very Spanish. Soon, a new suitor showed up--a mestizo doctor--and Magadelana's parents approved of him--and married off their daughter to the doctor.

But alas, this man was unfaithful to her, and caused so much heartache to Magdalena.

But 13 years later, tragedy struck. An enraged man entered the doctor's clinic and attacked him with a knife. (Reason: He discovered that the doctor was trying to have an affair with his wife.)

The doctor tried to escape, but the attacker chased after him, and in a busy intersection in Manila, he was murdered. Magdalena ended up a widow.

Soon, Tomas heard about what happened. And he searched for Magdalena, courted her again, and married her.

Why do I know their love story so well?

Because Tomas and Magdalena are my grandparents.

When I think of Lolo Tomas, I think of God's Love. It never gives up. It always waits until we say Yes to Him.

As of 3 p.m. today, the love story of Bo Sanchez' grandparents garnered more than 130,000 likes and 18,000 shares as readers also shared their insights about true love.

Beau Toughful says: "Also reminds me of Papa Joseph, the earthly father of baby Jesus. Papa Joseph was the perfect example of a real man, bcoz He completely accept & embrace Mama Mary. He was always there for Mama Mary through thick & thin. So is ur Lolo Tomas, he waited so long for ur beautiful grandma. I salute this kind of men who never look after the beauty, body, virginity & woman's status in life. This is what true love is all about. To love is to really wait for God's perfect sign.Follow where ur heart is, if that person u deeply inlove with is taken, then just patiently wait. If u were meant to be, love will find a way to bring that person back to u someday. If u keep on dreaming of that person, then u are halfway there."

Sakura Flowers adds: "Beautiful is something some people failed to feel or denied to feel , other sees it as a weakness they never give in specially in this time where people find convenience in life as their priority. truly they never understand happiness brought by this are nothing but passing compare to the feeling of having the person you love as a companion , someone you can rely with and understand and accepted you as of what you are , someone to stay with and share all of your comforts and discomforts. indeed love is a feeling can not be described simply."

Joy Mary also said: "True love is always worth the wait! I believe in destiny!"

What about you? Do you believe in true love? Do you think there's forever?
