Can something be so beautiful...


..that it actually pulls on your heart? That you can feel the tug of heartstrings?

Listening to Sometimes When It Rains by Secret Garden.. { or just about anything from Secret Garden..}


And looking at our on-line photo albums of the past year...

Seeing and hearing..

Tugging.

Little faces, beautiful sunrises, good times, beautiful mountains, darling dogs...sisters, brother, Arizona, Colorado...weddings, parties, scenery, song...melody..

So sweetly it hurts.

So beautiful..so painful.

So lucky..

So blessed.

I know exactly what you mean! I always get a little teary eyed this time of year, thinking back on all the joys and heartaches of the past 12 months. I used to get choked up at my kids' Christmas programs (so much pride ya know:) but now I do the same at my grandchildrens.
Pride in them all, yet fear that it's all moving a little too fast.
Many blessings to you and yours!

Ah, yes it can. All we have to do is open our eyes and see His love all around us - every second, every day.
