THE REAL MEANING OF WORDS ..........

COMPASSION

BEST FRIENDS

INNOCENCE

PATIENCE

RESCUED

LOVE
FRIENDSHIP

STRANGER

SORROW

DIVINE


LIFE IS NOT ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORMS TO PASS ..........IT'S ABOUT LEARNING HOW TO DANCE IN THE RAIN.

  40. This is such a genius post...i love that photo of the elephant. It reminds me of a story I once heard about a dog and an elephant becoming the best of friends in an animal shelter. The elephant was apparently sick once and had to be kept inside, and the dog waited faithfully by her window until she was better. So touching.
