I often get teared up when I watch a video like that, is amazing. Thank you to share this tips. xoxo

Thanks, Ana Lúcia. So glad you liked it.

I tear up when saw my baby in my arms. After almost 5 years trying get pregnant.

That was definitely a very special moment. Thank you for sharing it here with us.

I get teared up when someone says something really emotional to me.

With a violin playing in the background… 🙂

Hello, Tim! Firstly, I’d like thanking for the post. It’s so cute and at the same time so useful to improve the English.
Answering your question about what me feel sad and I tear up, it’s when I don’t find love in people’s heart. And you know, if we have less love, we have to face many sad things.
God bless you!

Thanks, Vania. Yes, that will make you tear up! I hope you do find a lot of love in your life! 🙂

I tear up when I hear my babies crying when they were born and this moment when they listening my voice they immediately stopped crying.

What a special moment! That IS very touching, Claudia.

Tim, can we say that “tear up” can mean “ficar com os olhos marejados”?
That’s funny, a couple of days ago I teared up while listening an instrumental song, classical music. I don’t know why, but it looks I was feeling the song! =]

Yes, that would be a great translation, Rodrigo! You were truly touched by the music. You must be a sensitive person.

Hello, Tim! I’m a cry baby (“manteiga derretida”, according to Denilso de Lima’s blog). So, I tear up for every moving thing or situtation, and when I hear the Brazilian National Anthem, too!

I wouldn’t say that I am a cry-baby, but it seems like I got more sensitive as I grew older, had kids of my own, etc. We were having breakfast Christmas morning; and before we ate, I prayed and thanked the Lord for all His blessings, but I got all chocked up and could hardly finish praying. It’s a little embarrassing (for a man, at least), but it’s nothing to be ashamed of. 🙂
