Thank you so much for everything you are... you are mothers, high-schoolers, teachers, students, grandparents, fathers, brothers... you are artists, photographers, doctors, physicists... we all have different backgrounds and different loves. We have pains and sorrows, joys and triumphs.
Most importantly, we have each other.
If you haven't heard by now, Japan was hit with 8.9 earthquake and tsunamis that have killed hundreds. Here in Oklahoma, fires have spread today and areas were evacuated. Weeks ago we had snow storms that shut states down for days. These can be scary times.
Times of immense destruction pushes the important things of life to the forefront: the relationships we have; those we love.
I want to do 2 things:
1. Thank you for being who you are. The good you do sends out ripples that touch many lives. Don't stop helping and serving and loving. Your kind work/look/touch can cure unseen sadness in others.
2. Tell someone you love them. Stand up and go to the other room and give a hug to a family member or pet. Email/text/call/skype/chat. Just don't wait.
Looks like i never posted an article we wrote for fuel your photography last fall when we almost lost our son. For now here it is over there.
For pictures like the one below check them out here.
My heart and prayers go out to all those affected by these disasters.
Go, give someone a hug.
