about things that aren't sad or spiritual - at least not really.
Like today in our graduate seminar. The man presenting talked in great detail about Karl G. Maeser. I found myself getting teary and choked up when he described the vision this man had for BYU. Then I started thinking... is this weird?
Then I started thinking about other things that I get teary about (besides the usual sad or testimony type stuff):
when I cut onions
watching someone score a touchdown
watching a team that I like take state
when I see anyone giving a tribute about anyone else
when I see missionaries reunited with their families
watching junior high kids do simple, small, nice things for other junior high kids (it is rare)
when one of my favorite teams on the Amazing Race accomplishes some huge task and they get emotional
when they play the star spangled banner during the Olympics
when Presient Hinckley waves to a crowd in the BYU Marriott center and thousands of people wave back
when my brothers tell me they love me
when Ann Dee writes about my parents
when Rory graduated from Chilton
O captain my captain
Wake Him up - The Champ (oh whoops that is a sad one)
Rudy Rudy Rudy
Lucas Lucas Lucas
(I'm starting to notice a pattern)
There are more - I just can't think of them all. Karl just got me thinking ...
