  1. Memorable heartwarming moment was when I had my daughter Amy 9 years ago. She was born on Valentines Day, the same day her father was brought to live with his parents from the orphanage when he was six months old.

  2. When my three grandsons, along with their mother who was bedbound with MS, came to live with us they were age 1, 3, and 4. We went from a home with 3 to a home with 7 overnight. Our loving church family reached out to help with a "home makeover". It included the addition of 2 bedrooms, a bath, and so much more. Just remembering the look on the boys faces when they walked into their new bedroom keeps me smiling.

  3. My most heart warming moment was when my long time boyfriend and I were having issues. He decided he needed to drive "home" for a while to get his head clear. The day he was scheduled to leave, I came home for lunch, expecting an empty house. I pulled into the garage and on the back door was a heart shaped post-it note. The note read "I don't need". I walked inside, past the laundry room, and found another heart shaped post-it note on the door opening to the kitchen. the note read "to go all the way". as I proceeded to the bedroom, my eyes welling up, the door was closed, and - there, another heart shaped post-it note. The note read: "to Indiana to know I love you". I pushed the door open and was greeted with a warm embrace from the man I love.

  4. Did you see the special about the high school track runner (her name is Kayla) who has MS and can't feel her legs as she runs while her coach cheers her on, but pushes herself anyway and then practically collapses at the end of the race into her coach's arms? About made me bawl at the end when her body heat was high and she needed water and her coach was carrying her at the end. She has amazing spirit to push through it all and strive for excellence regardless of her illness. That was a serious heartwarming moment. :)

  9. A heart warming moment for me was watching my husband holding our baby girl for the first time. He was so careful and not the least bit hesitant, of course when your the oldest of 10.lol I saw love at first sight that day and it brought tears to my eyes. Now that baby is 18 and a freshman in college. The day we moved her into her dorm I saw all my emotions etched on his face. The entire trip home we kept reminiscing about the growing up years.

Because I went many years not knowing if I would be a mother, when my son was born, I couldn't get enough of him! Even though the birth process isn't fun, that was one of the happiest days of my life!

  29. Sigh... I love heartwarming moments! I loved reading everyone's stories! My most heartwarming moments are when I'm at work. I am a caretaker at an assisted living facility and I currently take care of my 5 ladies at this house I work at. They were all complete strangers to me when I started taking care of them. But now, I have grown so very fond of them. Every night when I get them ready for bed and tuck them in or when I am getting ready to leave from my shift, they all hug me and kiss me and tell me that they love me. It seriously melts my heart each and every time. I love being able to take care of such wonderful ladies. We all get old if we are lucky, and I am just glad that I get to spend their last days with them making them comfortable and happy.

  31. My best heartwarming moment was when my man and I could not get through many obstacles and I was getting ready to leave the country forever, never to see his again. Needless to say how sad we both were. Then, our lawyer called with good news on how to solve the problems, and my man proposed to me right there and then in the kitchen - without any special settings or preparations. We've been happily married for over 7 years.

  40. My husband lay on an ER bed waiting to go into surgery. It was hard for him to talk but he had so much to say. Every word was painful but he talked on. His last words to me were "I love you, with all my heart and my soul. You are my best friend my lover my wife. Linda, I love you."

    One hour turned into the next with know word. I remember all the times we had, both good and bad. I remembered our decisions be donor's. Our final statement to the world was "Can I help you live, I have no need of this shell, please let me help others, harvest me!" After 23 years with Lee, we are almost alike in all our thinking.

    The doctor came out and gave me a big bear hug telling me. "Lee made it, he is in recovery." She had allot more to say but that's another story.

    Our road is all up hill going. We have lost everything we worked hard all our lives for. Our home, Our job's, our lives as we knew it, but as long as we have each other we will make it.

  43. I'm not sure if you're wanting Heartwarming moments from your books or real life? Some of my moments were seeing how close my father was with my children, building things with them and sharing stories and life lessons. This brought sadness, too, after he passed away. One said "Why did he have to die when I'm so little?" There were no answers and it was bittersweet that they had been so close.

  44. Heartwarming yes,I love when my grandsons show up and vacuum my front room. Or my granddaughter weeds my flowerpot garden on my deck. Sometimes the snow is shoveled or the grass is cut.

  58. My youngest daughter (19 at the time) suddenly suffered several grand mal seizures. After visiting serval local physicians looking for answers, we traveled to a clinic 120 miles away. At the clinic she went through a series of tests only to discover she had epilepsy. A condition she would have for her entire life. She was told she couldn’t drive, and she was placed on high doses of medication that would have unpleasant side effects. She was also told that the medication may or may not work at first, so she may have more seizures before they perfected the dosage. Oh, and she would have to take the medication for the rest of her life because there is no cure, the medication will just contol seizures and (hopefully) prevent any permanent damage. Then we got in the car to travel home. I was near tears thinking about her future – the dangers she would face daily, the toxic medication she would have to ingest, the fear of having a family of her own, the list goes on. We traveled in silence for about 30 minutes then she said. “Well, Mom, this is the best news we could have received. I don’t have cancer. I don’t have a tumor and I don’t have to have brain surgery. Epilepsy doesn’t seem so bad compared to those options. This will be my cross to bear knowing that other people have crosses that are much heavier than mine. I am going to be Okay.” Well, needless to say she humbled me and warmed my heart to the core!

  79. I'm still single and childless, so obviously my heartwarming moment can't be about my boyfriend or children. ;)

    So I would say my favorite heartwarming moments are when one of my friends is feeling down and I am able to make her day a little brighter by talking to her or taking her out.
    Whenever I am able to help someone out, that's the best feeling ever! :)

  80. My favorite heartwarming moment was my birthday two years ago. My boyfriend adopted two puppies from the local shelter after we were forced to humanely euthanize our Rottie. They brighten every day, and remind me how much he loves me :) Because two puppies are a LOT of work!

  81. I couldn't have children of my own but I loved my husband's with all my heart. My step-daughter was torn between us and my husband's ex, and as I predicted, one day she stole the children away. We always told her where to write to her dad if she ever wanted to find him even if she was told he was dead. Years later, she sent my husband a letter. Her high school counsellor urged her to write it. Our hands shook as we read her youthful expressions of love and hope that he would get her letter. She met with us, awkward and equal parts suspicion and hope. She asked us pointed questions which verified that she had been lied to her whole life by her scheming mother. (Sounds like a book plot!). Very soon after these revelations she moved in with us and we bonded like super glue, staying up late talking, sharing a love of books, watching Friends, Grey's Anatomy and Sex and the City episodes. On that first Mother's Day she gave me a stack of romance novels (!!!) and a card full of love, affection, and devotion and she began to call me "Mom". That brings tears to my eyes even now. At her college graduation she told me that if she ever has kids I'll be their grandmother. I never dreamed that I would find the love of my life and become a mom to such an amazing daughter. My favourite heartwarming moment? It happens every time I look at her.
