Couple's Photo Of Holding Hands Quickly Goes Viral (PHOTOS)

It was a freak accident that claimed her finger, but a woman healed and tried to get on with her life. One day she made a comment about her missing finger, and her husband stepped in to lend her his support. You can see why this couple is so in love.

Libby and Matt Sanders say it was a case of 'love at first sight.' The two have been married for six years, and are parents to five children ranging in ages from 4 months (their latest arrival) to 18 years. They own their own ice cream shop, which Matt named after his wife. Everything seemed perfect.

But then, nothing is perfect. Libby lost her little finger after it was smashed accidentally in a screen door. Being an optimistic person, though, Libby cut her losses and moved on with her nine fingers.

Sometimes, the finger loss would get her down, however. Like when she went to paint her fingernails, a task that reminded her of her severed limb. She mentioned it to Matt.

Matt had the most supportive response for Libby: "I will be your surrogate pinky. You can paint my pinky to match your nails for the rest of our lives"

"And so we did...." said Libby on a Facebook post. "I cannot image a sweeter, kinder man. No words adequately describe our love."

She included photos to show off the manicure on her injured hand-- five of her own nails, along with Matt's single painted pinky nail.

“It’s kind of just us being us,” Matt said to BuzzFeed. “Neither of us thought much of it.”

With that kind of support, it’s no surprise that this couple is so happy.
