14 Tender Photos That Made Us Forget About Everything Else

year ago

Time goes by very fast and only the most moving and truly important moments stick in our memory forever. It’s great when we are lucky enough to snap a photo of them and even better when there is someone who can tell us what’s going on behind the scenes.

We at Bright Side believe that you can always find some magic that makes your heart skip a beat somewhere in your old photos.

“Happy Father’s Day to the man who chose to be my father when he didn’t have to.”

“My little girl who is 15 years old wanted to go to the park today, she’s a bit too old so I carried her down there. When we got there this is how she sat enjoying the sunshine. Love her to bits!”

The one group you always stick with

“Before the launch of STS-80, I was allowed to ‘hug’ my dad goodbye — not pictured, a ditch that separates families from the astronauts, as they have to be quarantined before space flight. Happy Father’s Day, dad.”

“My boyfriend and I discovered that we have matching photos as TMNT-obsessed preschoolers.”

“My daughter has been entirely blind since late 2017, and I snapped a photo with my phone while she and her brother weren’t busy pushing each other. It looks like she’s looking over at him smiling. It simultaneously melts and hurts my heart when it seems like she’s intentionally looking at him.”

“My husband works at a nursing home, so naturally he befriended the 95-year-old man sitting next to him on our 4.5-hour flight. By the end, the man was showing him pictures on his digital camera from Christmas and telling him all about his family.”

“After 5 years of trying and 3 lost babies, we finally got to hold our little angel.”

“A year ago we adopted our autistic son from Korea. At a recent wedding, he spontaneously took my grandmother’s hand and led her on a walk. First time ever! She called it one of her ’treasured moments.’”

“I rescued this good boy one year ago today, he has sat with me like this since day one, I think he knew he was home.”

“My coworker told me today that I always look suspicious. I was very confused as to why she would think that and then remembered I have literally looked like this since I was a baby.”

“After being homeschooled all of my life, not feeling like I would be anything more than a cashier, I am the first of my generation in my big family to graduate from college.”

“Our schools aid dog is in the staff section of the yearbook and he has a tie.”

“My wife’s grandma died in her room yesterday with all of us around her. My dog always protected her while she was lonely or scared. He’s been keeping vigil all day, looking for his friend.”

I feel really happy when I see graduated people, how happy and proud they are. I feel happy from them too, education is precious


My father passed in 2003, my mom in 2014. Attached photo was taken around 1996. It's like they're saying goodbye way back then.
