Why Does This Video Bring Tears To My Eyes?

This heartwarming video of a little girl’s first airplane ride, was sent to me by a dear friend, Julie Patterson, who’s entire family has a passion for children. I choke up every time I watch it.  Is it because the greatest joy in the world comes not from a crowd’s standing ovation, but from the joy brought to one little child, like Lainey?  Am I just a sappy person? Watch the video and maybe YOU can help me figure it out.[reminder]What do YOU think?[/reminder] [youtube id=”w8JU-1ZrRAg”]
