How important is your family? Sometimes, I forget how thankful I am for the family that I have. Thank you ~jessS~ for reminding me how lucky I am with just a simple photo silhouette shot.

meme-donate-bloodTwo words: GIVE BLOOD… You know the story, but remember, this heart-warming, heart-breaking story can happen to you or your family. Read this blog story by my friend at Zen and Genki.

Say you’d never seek to lose me,
While you live we cannot part,
I must dwell lifelong inside you,
Locked within your beating heart.

Filmmaker Frans Hofmeester filmed his daughter, Lotte, every week, from birth up until she turned 12 years old, then made this incredible time lapse video. I wish I could have made something like this for my daughter… Watch and be amazed!
