Every year during the Olympics I turn into a blubbering mess watching those P&G commercials with the moms. They get me every.single.time. My crybaby tendencies aren't limited to commercials though, there are a whole host of things that get me going. So, in thinking about my list for this week I thought I'd share some of my 'grab the tissues' moments.
1) Marching Bands.
This is kind of a weird one since I actually used to be in the marching band in high school and it certainly didn't make me cry then, but get a big marching band playing in a parade and I kind of tear up.
2) Children performing on stage.
There is just something about a dance recital, or a play with little kids that makes me cry with happiness. It doesn't even have to be MY kids either, children of friends can start the waterworks too.
3) Puff the Magic Dragon.
Ugh, this SONG. I cry buckets I tell you, BUCKETS.
4) Snoopy Come Home.
My mother forbid me to watch this show in tv when I was small because I would get so emotionally wrecked over it.
The sight of Cinderella's castle glimpsed for the first time, walking down Main Street, watching the parades all snuggled up together on the sidewalk. Sigh.
6) Doctor Who.
Don't let our fandom fool you, this show will tear you up inside. Sure, there are hilarious and scary moments but it's all about the feels with this show ... and I wouldn't have it any other way. Ok, maybe just a little less heartbreak (you hear me MOFFATT?!).
7) Beneath the Waters (I Will Rise) worship song.
This is the song our worship team plays after someone gets baptized (mine too!) and it never fails to be powerful. In fact, I'm playing it from Youtube as I type :)
8) Math problems.
This pin says it all. As a kid I would just sit at my desk and cry because my brain just doesn't get it. My son, even now likes to play the 'let's see how much quicker than mom I can solve this problem' game. No, I am not smarter than a fifth grader.
