Imagine Dragons: Birds (Animated)

A beautiful song and animated video:

Love the artwork.

So much of this hits close to home, especially in light of the upcoming and imminent transformation of my oldest from pre-teen to… … … … … well, a real one.

She’s testing boundaries, the limitations of her decision-making opportunities, and challenging her two parents in every possible way—she ultimately wants independence, just as much as the next person.

And at the same time she’s entering an entirely new and exciting and scary world of High School; I’m not entirely sure how we’ll make it out alive—the Grace of God alone, I’d say.

This gal’s story ends with a tragic decision — but it never ends there as this is just the beginning.
