Things that tug my heartstrings
Image by an Iraqi artist taken in an orphanage. This little girl has never seen her mother, so she drew a mom on the ground and fell asleep with her. This tears my heart apart...
▶ Amazing video made by U of M Amplatz Children's Hospital - YouTube to song "Brave". HAVE to watch.
Makes you realize your problems aren't so big after all.
Window washers at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, an officer was interrupted by a little boy about six years old. Looking up and down at his uniform, he asked, “Are you a cop?” “Yes,” he replied and continued writing the report. “My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?” “Yes, that’s right,” he told him. “Well, then,” he said as he extended his foot towards the officer, “would you please tie my shoe?” .... EVERYBODY SAY AWWW :)
the little boy told the cop his mom said that a policeman could help him. what he needed help with is tying his shoe. ♥
He might be only part of your life, for him, you are his everything, the only person in his whole life. Precious :)@Amanda Lovell

"When my children used to walk in the room, when they were little, I looked at them to see if they had buckled their trousers or if their hair was combed or if their socks were up. You think your affection and your deep love is on display because youre caring for them. Its not. When they see you, they see the critical face. But if you let your face speak whats in your heart...because when they walked in the room, I was glad to see them. Its just as small as that, you see."
Something I always want to remember: One of Oprah's favorite lessons comes from Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison and the question she asked of all parents: WHEN YOUR CHILD WALKS IN THE ROOM, DOES YOUR FACE LIGHT UP?
Just so precious. That's real love my friends
This is the remarkable moment when a tiger bowed its head and placed a paw up to the hand of a small girl. Photographer Dyrk Daniels noticed the 370lb Golden Bengal Tiger had taken an interest in the child, who was leaning against his glass enclosure. As the tiger, called Taj, headed over to her, Mr Daniels got his camera ready, expecting him to snarl and bang against the glass. ‘I noticed that Taj had taken an interest in the girl and was heading towards her. ‘I thought for certain that the little girl would need therapy after the encounter and fear cats for the rest of her life. ‘I could not believe my eyes when Taj approached the girl, bowed his head and then placed his huge right paw exactly in front of where the little girl’s left hand was. ‘It was incredible to watch. Taj let down his right paw, rubbed his cheek against the glass where the little girl’s face was and moved off.’ Far from being scared, the little girl was so excited that she started clapping as she walked back afterwards towards her mother. ‘I have never seen such tenderness from such a large predator,’ Mr Daniels said.

This might be one of the most lovely things ever. This picture is from an article called "The Rescuing Hug". The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby's heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal. i lovey my twin
The MIRACLE of twins. As a mom of twins, I know how true this picture is. Twins have an amazing bond that no one but them will ever understand. This picture is from an article called "The Rescuing Hug". The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator.
