17 Photos That Can Stop Your Heart for a Moment and Get It Going Again

Any single photo from the ones we collected for this article makes us experience very strong emotions. Look at the strangers that are rocking someone’s baby, at the bride that came home to see her grandmother for the last time, or at the old cat that was finally adopted. You will feel warm, and see the strength of these people. These photos will make you believe that even though life can be tough, we will all be okay eventually.

For us at Bright Side, it is almost impossible to not tear up when we see these emotionally moving photos and we hope that they will make your hearts beat faster too.

1. Doctors prohibited this 102-year-old lady from flying to her granddaughter’s wedding, so her granddaughter surprised her: she came to see her wearing the wedding dress. It was the last time they saw each other.

4. “My wife and I couldn’t get our newborn baby to stop crying at a restaurant, so we embarrassingly started to pack up to go home when the couple sitting next to us offered to hold him so we could enjoy a night out. Our baby slept on this kind stranger’s shoulder the entire evening!”
