“My husband and I were so close to a divorce and I thought there was no hope… Until I saw this video I had taken of us,” Caitlin explains in the video.

In the footage, we see Caitlin and her husband — presumably soon-to-be ex-husband at the time of the clip — celebrating their little boy’s birthday.

As the three gather around the cake, candles all alight, Caitlin’s husband steals a glance at his wife.

“I could see the love for me all over his face,” Caitlin explains in the video’s caption. “I captured the exact moment I knew we could save our marriage.”

Thanks to that one small moment captured on her phone, Caitlin realized there was still hope for their marriage.

Today, after working through therapy together, the two are still happily married, with two beautiful children.
