People are revealing the sweetest things their loved ones do

Sometimes people are the cutest.

A Twitter user called Rachel Griffin has started the sweetest Twitter conversation. She asked people to tell her about their loved ones’ most unique and adorable quirks.

“Tell me something random about a person you love that makes you smile every time you think of it” she wrote on December 6.

Twitter, tell me something random about a person you love that makes you smile every time you think of it.

Mine is that whenever my husband sees a dragonfly, he watches in amazement and says in a tone of respect, "they're such accomplished fliers."

The answers are the most heartwarming things you'll read today:

I can always tell what season it is by the length of my dad’s beard. He grows it out every winter so he can play Santa in the community.

We’ll get home late, tired and eager for bed, and I’ll be halfway to the door before I realize he’s not next to me. I’ll turn around and my husband will still be standing next to the car, just staring awestruck at the moon.

And this one would have to be the sweetest of all.

A mum has shared that shortly after her own mother died, she found her eight-year-old son at the end of her bed during the night. When she asked what he was doing he said "I'm staying awake in case you wake up really sad & need an emergency hug from me.”

my partner often sneaks out for a late night snack and every time, he makes sure to text me pictures of all the rabbits he sees on the walk. it’s dark so the bunnies are usually just dark blurry blobs. he always captions the photos “bun 4 u”
