the precious little (or not so little) moments in life

Don't you ever just have those thoughts that are racing through your head, but when you want to share can't find the words? Like this picture...if you're like me, it just overwhelms you, and makes your heart want to burst, but...there simply are no words.

I watched the most precious, most beautiful show tonight, called "Coming Home", on the Lifetime channel; friends, if you're a TV person at all, or even if you're not, you have got to watch at least one episode of this show; I don't know that I've ever seen anything so touching, and so indescribably beautiful! In each episode (I believe; this was my first), a few stories are shared where kids, girlfriends, parents, are surprised by their soldiers coming home...and let me just say that it was within 3 minutes of the show starting that I couldn't help but sob; and then that lasted for pretty much the entire hour :P I'm an emotional person, but hey, I'm pretty sure that this would make even the most unemotional person tear up.

And just because it's beautiful:

and because it fits:
John: "...Because no matter what I'm doing, no matter where I am, this moon will always be the same size as yours...half a world away."

Sweet dreams, my chickadees.
(and go Tivo this show!)
