If You Love a Love story, Get Your Tissues Out!
If you love a good love story then grab those stiff tissues from the bottom of your purse now, you're going to need them!
Anna Kozlov had only been a newlywed for three days when she and her husband Boris had to separate. It wasn't their idea and the furthest from what they wanted. He was forced to fight in the Red Army and she would just have to wait for him to return —or so they thought. During Boris’s time away from home, Stalin exiled Anna and her family to Siberia, and Anna couldn’t contact Boris or even leave him word. The two shared the same hometown, but Anna was barred from visiting it, so the two completely lost contact. Boris looked for years for his wife to no avail.
Anna was so distraught that she almost committed suicide. She didn't even know if her love was alive or dead. Her mother destroyed all memories of Boris and Anna’s life together, including wedding photographs and letters.
Anna eventually remarried and Boris did as well. Neither knew this.
Then 60 years after exchanging vows, the most amazing thing happened. After both of their spouses passed, Anna was finally able to get to their shared hometown and was out for a walk when she noticed in the distance, an elderly man. The closer she got, the more she studied his every move and gate the more she believed the man she was seeing was the love of her life. Pinching herself, she slowly walked up to the man and was overwhelmed with emotion when she realized It was Boris. He’d come to the village to pay his respects at his parents’ burial site, and when he noticed Anna, he ran up to her despite his now frail body. True love never dies, it never stops trying to find you. It's all about time, the universe and the perfect moment.
Boris and Anna picked up like they never left off, had a second wedding and lived happily ever after.
