Joan,

Feels good on Saturday morning, too, though for some reason, my eyes kept fogging over.

Joan of Argghh! said...

I know. The puppy-lovin' almost slayed me, too.

Dammit. Blurry screen syndrome again.

Joan,

I have experienced the ecstasy of that moment... and the agony when it was no longer possible (part of the 'seed' of experience behind 'The Gift Of The MADGUY').

Thank you for this post. I needed those cleansing tears (the little girl at the beginning tore open old wounds ~ that needed fresh air).

What struck me about this was the audible and visible pain the children's cries revealed.

Their world without their mom or dad just moved along and forward in the graces of youth, but with a hidden hurt and pain that is finally discovered when they see the one face they have longed to see.

I think Heaven shall be like that. One look, and we shall crumble in pain and joy and hurt and longing when we see who we had almost forgotten we were missing.

Aw, Joan...that was just...a balm.
And you are so right in the above. Must be...you simply must be.

And the puppy lovin'? Just damn.

I came over via the previous poster, via yet another blog - this is just beautiful and heartbreaking and ecstatic and tragic all that the same time. I am so thankful for those who are able to come home, and thankful for those who continue to risk being unable to. And one day is never enough to remember them, and particularly the ones who never could.
