Anyone who knows me, knows that I tear up often, tears cleanse the soul. My real soft spots are acts of human kindness and reunions. Extreme Homemaker over caused a boon in Kleenex sales at my home when the show first aired. And, just about any kind of reunion will have me in a puddle– especially military reunions. What I love about reunions is that for a moment, we experience pure presence. There’s no past or future, just the blissful now.
Here are a few videos of some military reunions and amazing animal reunions that will touch even the most resistant heart. Even you don’t cry easily, you may find yourself getting joyfully teary as you empathize with the happiness of these families.
