This Made Me Cry

I know you're used to jokes and fun stuff here, but today I want to share a Greek video about two people and a sparrow that should come with a tissue alert. [Thanks to friend Gene for emailing it to me.] I hope you enjoy its beauty and remember its message.

May your weekend be blessed, wonderful and just exactly what you're hoping it will be!

Oh, I think I'll wait to check this out later. I'm not ready for a good cry yet.

Lori said...

Me neither. It's only morning, and a rainy and sad one at that, so I am trying hard to keep my spirits up. But I will definitely check it out later.

Wendy @ All in a Day's Thought said...

I'm always ready for a cry...what's wrong w/ me? :D I watched it and did just that. I don't write this very often in comments, but that video really did remind me of an element of what I wrote about today in my One Question Friday.

Powerful. Thanks for the post!

Hey Angie....that was so sweet....I'm on my way to my mum's soon; haven't seen her in 9 yrs, and she's 80....I think this was a gentle reminder to slow down and take the humble position with her....thank you xxoo

Later, gator ... as I'm leaving for work... Would be a crying shame to go in splotchy, especially on a FRIDAY!!!

Angie Ledbetter said...

LOL, Eileen. Hear ya.

Lori - It's the good kind of video that is touching...especially if you are a care giver for an elder.

Glad you connected, Wendy. I'll be over to your place during my blog stroll today. :)

Braja, happy the reminder came right before your visit. Hope your visit is awesome!

Hey, Boomer. Have a fun weekend.

Suzanne said...

Amazing. Sad. Thoughtful. Detailed and yet... simply. What I strive for in my own work.

Thanks for sharing. Pinging back to it in my own blog.


Amy said...

Poignant. If only patience and tolerance could guide my every thought, my every move every day. Sad, but thanks for sharing it, Angie.

Hilary said...

Darn you, Angie.. salty coffee tastes pretty bad.

Thanks for the link.. it's very touching.

Stephanie Faris said...

Awwww. I didn't want to cry today! But crying from being touched is actually a good thing.

Deb Shucka said...

The power of story! This one was beautifully told. It seems that we're not the only ones who know birds as God's messengers. Thank you for this.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Thanks, Suzanne. I try to use the message of that video as a guiding principle too. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes not.

Amy, ditto.

Had the same salty drippage in my coffee, Hilary. *smile*

Stephanie -- I agree. Tears can be healing. :)

So true, Deb. (And I feel similarly moved when I read your writings!)

Jenn Johansson said...

That's just beautiful. Thanks Ang!

The Unbreakable Child said...

Sweet video and I tweeted your blog today. Happy weekend. x0

Kathryn Magendie said...

oh, that is so sweet - so gentle and kind...thank you angie

Elizabeth Bradley said...

Oh man, this made me cry a river. I spent the last five years taking care of my dad as he succumbed to Alzheimers, and he would ask me the same question over and over. He passed away last December. I am still crying, this was so beautiful. What a message.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Jenn, you're welcome.

Unbreakable/Kimmi: Thanks! And I tweeted yours and Kat's books. :)

Kat, knew you'd like it.

Eliabeth, I did too. Sorry to hear about your dad. My mom repeats a lot too since she got brain cancer. Glad you got some comfort from the video. I did too.

Debbie said...

You always post what we need! Loved this.
On my way out of town for a little vacation:)

Kind of reinforces the way that we try to coach our kids. They are learning everyday and it is our job to teach them how to be productive adults. Great short.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Debbie, hope your trip is great!

Too true, Oren. :)
