In a post she shared on imgur, the California woman discussed her recent battle with depression:

Through it all, Murphy's husband has stuck by her and constantly tried to cheer her up, according to the post. But earlier this week, he went above and beyond.

"Today when I came home from a trip to SF, I flopped onto my bed in tears. I looked to my left, and saw these words painted all across my mirror. I think he wanted me to remember how much he loves me. Because he knows how quickly I forget. He knows I struggle to see good in the world, and especially the good in myself. But here it is."

The list says:

  1. She is my best friend
  2. She never quits on herself or me
  3. She gives me time to work on my crazy projects
  4. She makes me laugh, everyday
  5. She is gorgeous
  6. She accepts the crazy person I am
  7. She's the kindest person I know
  8. She's got a beautiful singing voice
  9. She's gone to a strip club with me

  11. She has been fully supportive about my career choices and followed me each time
  12. Without realizing it, she makes me want to do more for her than I have ever wanted to do for anyone
  13. She's done an amazing job at advancing her career path
  14. Small animals make her cry
  15. She snorts when she laughs
