I am in a funny mood

And I am okay with things making me cry a bit:

Shirley, a 52 year-old disabled former circus elephant is reunited with Jenny 20 years after Shirley had been sold by the circus that owned them both. 

All of the things are in my eyes. All of the things, ever. 

Kleenex. Now. I cried like a woman.

The sweetest thing. Do yourself a favor and watch this. It has restorative powers.

So beautiful. So many tears. This is what I get for staying up till 2am and then watching this video.
