Pictures speak thousand words and here are the ones which can warm up your souls:

Nicole Bennett, of Jackson, Mississippi, incorporated her late husband Deonta in her maternity photo shoot 

Maternity shoots to anyone are really really precious. Every mother wants to preserve these cherishing memories and Nicole did it in a tremendous way when her husband, Deonta, passed away just two months before her due date for her second baby’s birth.

She decided to include him in the photos in a very special way and make his presence be felt forever.

It had been Deonta's idea to do a maternity shoot with Nicole and their 4-year-old son Landen before her March 25 due date

Actually it was Deonta’s idea to have a maternity shoot with his beloved wife and their 4 years old son Landen which Nicole kept alive even after his death.

Photographer Sidney Conley who captured all the pictures digitally submerged images of Deonta as a silhouette showcased as his angel spirit.

He passed away unexpectedly just two months before Nicole's due date 

As reported by Daily Mail, Nicole hopes that this would be special memory for her children and they can always remember their dad. “It’s memories for my son of his father and for my daughter who will never meet her father, it’s memories for her as well,” she said.

Photographer Conley digitally included Deonta in the photographs and admitted that he was so deeply moved, that it brought tears to his eyes.

The photos received over 100,000 shares on Conley’s Facebook page.

True love stays forever and these pictures proved it in a beautiful, heart melting way.

An inspiring story – Teaching great lessons about life

Here are some inspiring words -Anonymous

Though these words were send to me in the name of Steve Jobs, but in absence of any firm source they can’t be attributed to Mr. Jobs.

Steve Jobs’ Last Words were “Oh..wow, Oh..wow, Oh..wow” as told by his sister and published at various media print and online.

These words convey great learning and inspiration.

By anyway, we should take a pause in life, look around, feel the love and cherish all what we do have, be grateful and do all the good what all we can to live a happy life filled with satisfaction and contentment.

Here goes these words:

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death. 

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world?

Sick bed…
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”

Man Pushes Wife To Save Himself From A Sinking Cruise Ship. But The Reality Is Priceless.

A great lesson from the story.
Everything happens for a reason.
Whatever happens, happens for good.
What’s wrong or unjust from one’s perspective may be right from another’s perspective.
We have one life, live it fully, love it, spend it with people who care for you. Enjoy every moment. At the end only memories remain. Gather good ones.

Live by yourself, Be yourself

“Life becomes easier when you become your own best friend.”

Find solitude, find time for yourself, stop living for others, live your life as you wish to live. You have one life and limited time to pursue your dreams. Make a life that you can say at end “Ohh..Yes I did” instead regretting…”I could have…” or “I should have…” Don’t get trapped by the dogma “What others will think?”

Give yourself time and live for your dreams. Have dreams to do something, to work for a noble cause, help someone, or just do something good.

Life will really become easier and happier.

It’s all about living a beautiful life filled with happiness and contentment. Sharing the wisdom gained in the journey of my life.
