Happy Tears!

These 60 seconds have had me in happy tears every day since the Olympics began. I think of my parents (with baby boy Karim born along the way) immigrating to Canada 37 years ago.  Thank you Mom and Dad for the strength and roots you gave us - here.



If you work in advertising or marketing at Tim Hortons, I believe you owe me some new mascara.

What a beautiful advert... will they post mascara and tissues to NZ?

Oh I saw this one! I also loved how he was choosing out winter coats for his family - it looked like a day just like this one with the snow. So sweet. :-)

i haven't had a chance to sit and watch this all week until now, but honestly thought to myself, "i know it'll be sweet, but that faiza gets emotional more than i do..." completely NOT expecting to be typing this through a veil of tears! this commercial and your post made me think of my parents coming here too, but also of every reunion i've ever had at the airport.

@sylvie - sweet indeed!

@bklyn76 - the airport part is what makes it all the more special!

My parents will be in Canada in May. Please send them some new eyeliner for me, as you've got me bawling!

@Tima - LOL! Imagine seeing this a few times every day and feeling that same way every time. That has been my TV watching experience for the past few days.
