Ever have someone say someone that was so touching it made you tear up?

My boyfriend used to send me texts that were really sweet and he would make my eyes tear up a little. Well lately I've been upset about him joining the army and I've been worried about his safety and what's going to happen to our relationship. So I told him I had to talk to him about something serious and I asked what's going to happen to us when he leaves, has to get stationed far away, or if he gets sent to Afghanistan. He said "We stay together" to all of my questions, which I thought he would but I just wanted to hear it and know for sure what will happen. Then I told him how worried I was and that I didn't want him to die. He said "I won't. I love you too much to die". That literally made my eyes water and tears fell down my face. It was something simple he said but it just touched me so much that my eyes instantly watered. Has your partner or anyone ever said something that instantly made your eyes water out of happiness?

I know it could be all mushy, and cheesy, etc (to others)... But you should take comfort in that response of your boyfriend to not to worry too much. He himself would take extra care so that nothing happens to him. And so that you can always 'stay together'!

I really hope he makes extra sure that he's safe and okay. He knows how much going into the army is killing me and I think he knows not to do anything else that would break my heart. When I heard him say that I teared up a little because it was such a sweet thing to say. In the end, I think he'll make everything work out for us since I know how much he wants to be together.

My kids are the only one, mostly the youngest two who can touch me that I could get tears in my eyes. Mostly if they make me a compliment or if I see people treat them badly. If my son says: I don't want you to know because I don't want you to be sad. Then I tell him it's better we cry together as I cry alone about him. Also a friend can if she cries and sees how others treat my son. But if adults make me a compliment or so I am mostly surprised and wonder why, although I appreciate it.

Awww, that's so sweet. Even though they're so young, kids can sometimes say the cutest things and just leave us amazed that they would even think like that.
