Weddings are a beautiful way to celebrate love between two people who have decided to spend the rest of their lives together. But before the bliss could really begin for this couple, they were forced to deal with one of those pesky uninvited guests who always seem to sneak their way in.
The newlyweds, Rebecca and Brian Pepper, were enjoying their sunset photoshoot when the photographer noticed someone lurking in the background…
In the animal world, sometimes orphans get adopted by mothers that aren’t even in their species. That’s because motherly love is blind… and it can result in some of the most adorable combinations we’ve ever seen.
Meet the cutest family of all time. It consists of two adorable mini-pigs and then a motherly rabbit.
We don’t know how these creatures met, we just know that the world is now infinitely better because of this happy animal family.
It’s often the tiniest of things in life that make us the most excited. Simple things even… like an object fitting just perfectly into another object, as is the case with the 14 things in the pictures below. These pictures are like a dream come true for anyone who has that innate need for organization. You know who you are. 🙂
1) OMG, this bowl is so calling for tomato soup. Perfect with grilled cheese sandwiches.
2) These Xbox games fit so perfectly into the draw that it might actually be hard to get them out again. First World Problems.
3) It’s a shame the tiles don’t fit perfectly as well.
4) Aww how cute. Granted, kittens fit perfectly into everything.
5) Somewhere, the man who designed that fridge drawer is smiling.
7) A perfectly sized slice of lime. For that consistent lime taste.
8) These two pieces are by artist Michael Johansson. It’s safe to say he has an eye for the perfect fit.
9) The perfect way to store black electrical tape and duct tape…as long as you never use them.
10) This is how one frozen yogurt shop dries their scoopers. Magnificent perfection.
11) Now superglue all the pieces so no one can ever get them apart. Or alternatively just use the thin pieces. Works just as well as glue.
12) It’s almost as if the chair was build solely with this purpose in mind.
13) Not sure the OCD meds are working as intended.
14) Her face fits perfectly into a Canadian Gemini Award.
I had no idea something so simple could be so satisfying to my brain. I can now sleep easy after seeing this. Source: imgur Share these perfect fits with your friends below.
The patients inside of the Children’s Hospital of Alabama got a special surprise one afternoon. Instead of surgeries, medicine and treatment, they got dose of superheroes. A group of unitard-clad men crawled all over the outside of the building, just to bring smiles to the faces of the children inside.
Outside of the children’s hospital, a group of superheroes were suspended high above the streets.
They weren’t fighting villains – instead, they were there to cheer up the many patients inside.
You see, the hospital was the Children’s Hospital of Alabama.
They hung outside of the Benjamin Russell Building just to bring smiles of the children inside.
The heroes scaled down the 15-story building, stopping at every floor to brighten up the days of the children inside.
The cute act of kindness was performed by the Squeegee Cleaning Services of Chelsea.
Although it was adorable, it was also heartbreaking.
Every child inside was fighting off illnesses…
But for that afternoon, they were superheroes, too.
It took courage for Captain America, Superman, Batman and Spiderman to be suspended outside of such a large building for so long…
But it was worth it, if it meant brightening the days of the sick children inside.
Some people think superheroes only exist in comic books or movies… but judging by what these men did for some sick kids, we think superheroes are REAL. Source

Helping those in need may not be everyone’s first instinct… but it should be. A simple act of kindness occurred on a bus in Canada that is inspiring thousands online. A man, possibly homeless, was sitting on the bus while wearing two plastic hairnets on his feet instead of shoes. Another person saw his fellow passenger’s plight. Instead of leaving the other man be, he decided to step in to help him out.
He approached the man, gave him his socks and shoes and said, “You can take these, don’t worry about me — I live close by and can walk.”
Then, without another word, he got off of the bus.
(H/T Elite Daily) This man’s simple, but Godly, actions are inspirational. The bus driver, Surjit Singh Virk, had never seen an act of kindness like this before. The bus passenger who gave up his shoes was a 27 year-old, just wanting to help his fellow man. When asked about his decision to give away his shoes, his reply was simple. He lived close to the bus stop and he felt bad for the man without shoes… so he wanted to help. What he did for a fellow human being is amazing. Share this act of kindness with others.
Having a job you don’t like is one thing, but when your boss is cruel, it’s nearly unbearable. For one group of employees, the boss took it one step too far. She told one employee that “cancer wasn’t an excuse.” That was the final straw. Every single employee at this Journeys store decided to get revenge…
They quit. Every single one of them. This is the note they left.
Deryn Blackwell, a 14 year-old boy, didn’t think he had long to live. He had leukemia and was fighting another rare cancer. Last December, he was told he only had days to live. Deryn began planning his own funeral, his coffin was to be driven in the same hearse that once carried Winston Churchill. Then, he wanted to be brought into the crematorium to the sound of Move Your Feet. He also wanted to be laid to rest wearing a suit and having a styled pink mohawk. But then, everything changed.
Deryn was told he wouldn’t see Christmas. When he was 10 years-old he was diagnosed with leukemia. Then, he was diagnosed with the extremely rare Langerhans cell sarcoma.
Doctors attempted to give Deryn bone marrow. All of the surgeries failed and his body was being attacked by multiple infections.
He even had a superbug that caused three of his fingers to go black and necrotic. He and his parents were told, “This is the end.”
He accepted his own death. Deryn had been fighting hard for four years and he just wanted an end to the struggling.
He went home that December, thinking he wouldn’t see Christmas. But then Christmas passed. And New Years. In the second week of January, Deryn accidentally tore a bandage off one of his fingers. It wasn’t decayed down to the bone. It was healed.
His immune system was completely shot, he was taken off drugs at the very end and doctors don’t know HOW he was able to fight off so many infections. But he did.
No one can explain just how Deryn survived, other than it being a miracle. “Two months ago we were getting ready to cremate Deryn and now they are telling us that his treatment is over,” his mother said.
Now, as strange as it sounds, Deryn is coping with life. He had been so ready to die and give up his battle with cancer, he is now unsure what to do with his new lease on life. This is truly a miracle and we hope that Deryn learns to live again, even though things were so dark for so long. Source: Daily Mail He used to think about his life in hours or days. Now, Deryn can really think about his future, his schooling and even a career. Share his miracle recovery with others and spread positive thoughts about Deryn, his survival is an incredible miracle.
On May 21, Corinne Cinatl, 29, from Victoria, Australia gave birth to her baby girl Matilda in her car at the side of the road while enroute to the hospital. She and her husband had hoped to make the 35 minute trip, but baby Matilda decided she could not wait that long. Cinatl’s husband, Mishi pulled the car over when her water broke and helped delivered the baby right there in the car. Luckily the couple’s birth photographer had been following them on the way to the hospital and captured the whole thing.
Cinatl said she had been having pain in her ribs for two weeks prior. So she thought nothing of it when she woke up around 3am with the same pain.
When stretching didn’t help and the pain intensified, Cinatl realized she was having contractions. Baby Matilda was on her way.
Cinatl was hesitant to believe she was actually going into labor. “I thought I had more time,” she said.
When her husband saw the contractions were coming faster and about 4 minutes apart, he packed up the car and got ready to leave. He also notified the birth photographer, Breanna Gravener that the baby was coming.
With their three year old son, Charlie, in the car the family only got about 20 minutes into the 35 minute trip to the hospital.
Cinatl’s water broke and she said she could feel the baby’s head between her legs. That was when they pulled off the road to deliver right there in the car.
They didn’t know their birth photographer had gone to their house first and followed them on the way to the hospital “just in case something happened.”
Luckily for the Cinatl’s she was there to capture the unique miracle of baby Matilda’s birth.
After the birth they called an ambulance, and both mommy and baby were so healthy they were discharged from the hospital six hours later.
That’s one proud mother.

A couple in England spent the last 68 years completely devoted to one another, never spending a day apart. Not even death could separate the love birds: at age 91 and 92, George and Dorothy Doughty died within hours of each other from two completely different causes.
George was already in intensive care for a chest infection when his wife was admitted for shingles a couple days later and, sadly unable to fight the infection, passed away. George had been sedated and was completely unaware of his wife’s condition. He passed exactly 10 hours later.
The couple met after George sent his condolences to Dorothy when she lost her first husband (of only four months) in World War II.
When they met in person for the first time, George carried and newspaper and Dorothy carried a rose.
They shared the same wedding anniversary as the Queen and even went to London for her garden party to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary in 1997.
George worked as a baker and Dorothy ran a hair salon with one of their sons. After retirement, they focused on their family.
The couple had two sons, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
When Adam met Hollie, she was his nurse at the hospital in Thousand Oaks, CA where he was receiving treatment for Lyme disease. Over the course of a year, they spent hours together, three days a week, during his treatment. During that year, the two fell deeply in love.
After kicking that disease, Adam spent more time with Hollie and her son Joshua. The couple even decided to take things to the next level by moving in together. Then, tragedy struck again: Adam was diagnosed with ALS. The prognosis of someone affected by the debilitating disease is grim. Each day is a fight against their deteriorating body. But, as Hollie explained, that never changed the way these two felt about each other.
“He tells me right then and there, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I want my last days seeing your face, kissing your lips, sleeping by your side. I understand if you don’t want this burden on you. But if you want me, I want to marry YOU. What do you say?’”
This series of photographs of primates living in captivity named ‘Behind Glass’ is by Atlanta-based photographer Anne Berry. From South Africa to Belgium she traveled the world to capture photos of apes and monkeys living in small zoos, in hopes of truly reflecting and capturing life on the other side of the glass/barrier. Most of the captive primates in Anne’s photographs look quite sad, but she insists her work is not to advocate against zoos. “I think zoos are doing a better and better job of keeping animals and replicating habitats that don’t exist in the wild anymore,” Berry said. “It’s not the best that you’d like, but it’s keeping species alive.”
The name ‘Behind Glass’ refers both to the glass or boundaries of an enclosure and to the glass of the camera lens. The somber mood of the photographs isn’t accidental either, she shoots them in black and white and uses a wide aperture on her 80mm lens. She does this as the black and white images feel both aged and emotional, each photo clearly showing the solitude of the animal. “I think it makes people have more empathy for them and stop and look at the picture. If they feel sadness and nostalgia, they might think about what’s happening and the challenges the animals face in the wild due to the increasing loss of their natural habitat,” she said.

While sailing on Somerset Reservoir in Vermont with his son, a man spotted a young squirrel trying to swim across the lake. The distance from one side to the other was about 3/4 of a mile and the squirrel was right in the middle of the lake. After trying to get him to climb aboard without success, the man decided to jump into the water to save the little guy.

Russian photographer Maris Ionona-Gribina has a gift. But whether that’s good or bad, you’ll be the judge. The way she memorializes the dead is intriguing to say the least. You’re about to see why.
“I found these dead animals during bicycle rides to the sea in the summer. I wanted to find a way to save them for world of art. They were so unprotected… One or two days more and they would be eaten by worms.”
What’s the verdict? In the end, we’ll take this as a beautiful attempt to give peace and beauty to these fallen animals. And we can only hope to have such dedication from those around us when our time comes. If you want to see more of Maria’s work, check out her website and see what else she has up her sleeve.
