    The moment my friends and family came to the airport to say goodbye, when I left to Spain to start a new life on my own. A beautiful, sad and positive moment, since it was the beginning of something new and exciting.

    The love of my parents when i am suffering from brain hammerage. They cared me the time most and many nights holding my hand till night that if i won't get any kind of scared. Made my cry by seeing their sympathy and love for me! Parents are really great gift of god. I thanks god for giving me parents so lovely and caring!

    They have passed many nights without sleeping but sitting beside me. Memorizing those moments really touched my heart which made me cry!

    I guess I'm just a cry baby.
    Anytime I see someone else crying, I tear up and cry.
    There are times in church when I will cry for no apparent reason; other than the move of the Holy Spirit.
    I cry when my children say or write something earnestly from the heart.

    When my son got married he had the DJ play a song for me and him to dance. It made me cry!

    Ther are so many that is difficult for me to pick one. But on the top of the list would be the moment my children were going to school one morning, I was still inside getting ready to leave. My son (7), stormed in sobbing, and I could hear my daughters crying out side the house. When I went to the drive way, our kitten  was on the edge of the side walk, he was ran over by a car or something. Both girls (8) and my son were calling out to wake up the cat. One of the kids even asked me to cure the kitten  ( I was an ER nurse back then) I have never seen any thing like that in my children. Even the neighbor came and had to remove the cat and put it in an empty shoe box. It's been almost ten years, and still my eyes water when I remember them kneeling around it and begging for me to wake up "Mittens".

    Seeing my sweet little sister for the first time after she was born.  Knowing, at age 11, that she was totally dependent on us, I wanted to be the best big sister:)  How precious children are!

    The day I stood in front of Leonardo DaVinci's original drawings. It was overwhelming.

    The end of the last Lord of the Rings movie where Aragorn makes everyone bow for the hobbits.

    there have been so many in my life, but I think I cried the hardest when my son moved out of the house in his junior year of college. Walking into his empty bedroom just ripped my heart out, I sat on the floor and sobbed. Ugh.

    this will be long..
    Ok its something I did for my husband before we were ever even officially together. Myself and my friend had planned this beautiful candlelit picnic alongside the lake, in sylvan lake. Down a road not well travelled. There was chocolate mouse, chocolate covered strawberries, a nice blanket, candles stuck in the dirt all around and i had picked out specific music for the night. I had also picked out some nice champaigne for the special night.
    I had asked John out on a date and set the date and planned for my friend to go to the spot to prepare the area while I took out my future hubby to a movie. After the movie I had blindfolded John and drove him out to Sylvan Lake, all the while he was getting very anxious. When we got there, I set up my laptop to play the music I had picked, walked around the truck and opened his door and helped him out. I told him to take off his blindfold...I could have sworn i seen a tear. He hadn't said anything for so long I though he was weirded out..but then he said thank you so much..no one has ever done anything like this for me.
    It was the most beautiful frist date ever and i am already getting teary just writing this out. I love my hubby so much.

    There have been many moments in my life when I felt like crying. Most of the time were about beautiful things happening. I felt like crying when I was at my official engagement party. Second when my son was awarded a prize in eight grade for Achiever of the Year. Then when my daughter got married, when her son was born, and when my youngest went out of the house to go to college. I also feel like crying anytime anyone has some great opinions about all my children or my husband. I guess I am a softy!!!

    someone spoke words to me that told of how they had valued me...without sharing in what context they were said..i can only say...i was so very humbled...one does not know how others view us...unless a soul steps forward and volunteers the words...i wept..openly...

    Anytime someone sacrifices themselves the another person or for the greater good. Not necessarily dying Heroes I guess you can say. Whenever I hear about someone putting themselves at risk because they cared more deeply about someone else to do so. Call it selfishness, but I am deeply touched by stories like that.

    My best friend lost her husband in a tragic accident leaving her with two young children.  I lived with her for a few years to help her out.  We've been through a lot together--I've been there with her through her hardest times and she's been there for me through my toughest times.  She recently started telling me how much I mean to her and she started crying--which made me start crying.  Our friendship is so rare and beautiful and I know that no matter what, we will always be there for each other.  There is complete safety for us to be honest about life--the good and the bad--and we encourage one another and help each other out. We've both experienced loss and therefore we both really appreciate the blessings in our lives--this friendship being one of them.

    And an ongoing experience that makes me cry like a baby is whenever I stop and just wrap my mind around and open my heart up to God's love for me.  Whenever I sense His presence, I can't help bursting into tears.  The love is so overwhelming that my body can barely contain the goodness of His presence--tears are my language of love sometimes--it is a way I say, "Thank you" when I cannot find the words to suffice.

    When someone overcomes overwhelming odds. A great success story where someone has triumphed over crippling adversity and impossible conditions. Breaks my heart with joy and hope. I also cry at weddings. smh

    Gabrielle Giffords, when she was shot, when she had a super story of healing and knowing that if a nobody  without health insurance ( like the rest of AZ)- she would still be flat on her back. She had to go to Texas for recovery.

    Arizona doesn't even pay for an infected tooth pull but will pay for x-rays only. (Gotta pay the doctors!)

    AHCCCS" means the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System. I think 2 of those C's should stand for cruel cuts

    I have an easy disposition for crying though I seem the opposite from the outside. Everytime I think of my mother is one such moment. Growing up, I (the middle child of three) was never close to her. No hugs, tears or confessions…only anonymous displays of gratitude. She loved us all…but I stood in the sidelines and watched the love she had for my brothers. All mothers have that nameless deep bond with their firstborn and my younger bro was simply too adorable. I never sought for her attention and she gently teased me for my unwavering coldness and must have thought, ‘what a strange child!’ But my brothers left and in that one long season, I came to know my mother as I never had before. Her life, the trials and sacrifice…the little facets of her past. It had been an overwhelming experience. I guess it’s like that with all mothers…one could never know them completely. You can know more than your mother…accomplish more but you cannot be better than her.
    Another thing that makes me cry are my beloved characters when I pen them down…the heart literally breaks inside. And thrice, i saw one in my dreams (should have been impossible)...I cried the whole day!
