Prepare to be moved.

The pictures and story of this photo essay {by Romain Blanquart} are powerful and touching. I was moved and inspired at the same time. I often take my marriage and health for granted. Not today. Not after spending a few moments empathizing with this young couple.
True love is a gift.
For better or worse.
Life is a precious and beautiful thing.

That was beautiful. I looked at one of the other essays on the site, too. It was the little girl and her dad. How heartbreaking. We sometimes take loved ones for granted. These essays demand that we no longer do so. Thank you, Jody

Oh the perspective this gives to LIFE! I was moved to tears and thought..my aches and pains (and sometimes they're significant due to arthritis etc) are miniscule compared to this story. Thank you for sharing!!!

Oh man. Oh MAN! I spend way too much time griping and complaining. Sometimes it's just so clear that I've been lucky and blessed and haven't truly appreciated it!

counting my blessings right now!
