Need a good cry?

Do you need a good cry? Let this story do a number on your tear ducts.

Being in the Olympic spirit all week, and so excited for track and field, I stumbled upon this video.

I don’t remember the 1992 Olympics, (I was 6) but I can’t imagine anyone who witnessed this moment could ever forget.

A medal hopeful pulled his hamstring during the race, but he had to finish. And he did–with the help of his dad who ran down from the stands.

Watch this and try not to cry. I dare you.

The video also has a beautiful spiritual message which I really appreciated. I guess you could say I needed that.

Happy Sunday!

You win…I cried!

I was only 6 too and I don’t remember this but appreciate how beautiful it is! As a mom, I can totally see myself doing the same for one of my children, what a great father!

I didn’t think I’d cry, but here I am bawling my eyes out. If that was my daughter Abigail I totally would have done the same for her. A parent’s love for their child conquers all.
