Some Things to Make Your Heart Melt: In a Good Way

Updated on May 11, 2015

This is for you and your loved ones

When something bad happens its amazing how people will go out of their way to let the whole world know. And when something good happens only a few people will hear about it. I know this because of some of the jobs that I have held. But in this case I am giving out a few things that can and should be shared with as many people as you can.

I don't care if you bring them back to my lens. What I care about is that you take anything that you can and use it any way you can. Bring a smile to your self when you think about the ideas that are to follow. Bring a sigh to others as you warm their hears with a little something that you found here and are able to share.

What I am saying is the things that you will be seeing on this page are here to make you smile. To the point of wanting to share them with others and bringing back good memories to you. With that I hope that you enjoy what you are about to read, see and hear.

Its not always the big things

But the small that will move them

When was the last time you brought just one flower home for her? Not a whole dozen, not 20 or even a rose bush. But just one flower. And this time I am not talking about a red rose as every rose seams to have a different meaning these days.

Also with roses you can dry them and press them so that they will be around that much longer. Trust me my wife does it. Usually by a windows so that when a breeze comes in you can smell the rose from across the room.

The image above is from my wife's rose bush.

the story of the tin soldier and the ballerina - By Hans Christian Anderson

Fist I found this version on amazon and then tried to find it at one of the local libraries. The librarian pulled a different copy. I went back the next day and showed another librarian the same book using the online card catalog. This time the book was on the shelves. To be honest I know the story. It was the cover art that I was most interested in. For me many times it is the pictures that draw me in. In this case that is true.

Reading through both books This one had the illustrations that kept my attention. I tried to read the other but the art work pushed me away. I closed that book and returned it to the library. This one I read to myself and then to my youngest son.

Even though the pictures played a big role in this for me the story also flowed with the pictures. The two worked well in conjunction with each other. As the story led up to the ending every thing flowed so well that my son looked forward to turning the pages.

This one may not melt your heart but it should make you smile.

Lead Me - Sanctus Real

\As the dad in the family its amazing how one song will hit you between the ears. That's right I heard it long before the video release. This song helped me remember how much my family needs the dad of the house to be there. To be available. Sometimes its not that easy. Especially when the hours worked can change on a dime. Or being down sized and looking for that next job. Trying not to lose track of what is most important. Not the job. Not the income. But the time that they need with their parents. This song can sometimes tear at your heartstrings. But at others it can help you remember the times that they needed you and how you were there for them. In a way it is a double edged sword. On one hand it is dangerous but on the other it is a weapon you don't want to live with out. Just like your family you do not want to give it up.

Lead Me on Amazon

Yes I actually bought the song twice.

I heard this song and actually purchased it as a single.

After seeing this movie I went out and bought the sound track and this song was part of it.

 

Its always interesting to see a running scene at the end of a movie

Its like they know they have to get somewhere. And they know the only way to get there is to move as fast as possible. But somehow using transportation just won't work. And in their case it won't. It means something more to see someone willing to move on their own to get to where they need to be.

Just like the two movies I am showing below. Both rated PG. In Sleepless in Seattle one realizes that the people she wants to be with are on the other side of NY City and will do what ever it takes to get there. But being a very city it's easier to go on foot. And in Cheaper by the Dozen while looking from their brother / son the family runs around the town looking for him. When the dad realizes where his son is he runs there and finds him.

There was another movie that would have fit into this same theme but rated R. Sorry folks but all my sites are keep in the PG section.

Time to make a choice

Of the above four, which are you most likely to melt someones heart with?

Even if your heart didn't melt please feel free to leave a word or two
