(Get) Carried Away:
An explanation used to show exaggeration when becoming emotionally involved
The very act of being carried is one of the most physical outward gestures of genuine care, protection and love for something other than yourself. We've all seen the pictures of a firefighter pulling a small child or animal from the depths of despair. The pictures of a bride being whisked away by her Prince Charming after a joyous reception. The images or mothers and fathers leaving the hospital for the first time with a new life bundled safely in a carrier. The soldiers who've carried their fallen and wounded brothers to safety. A lineage of husbands, sons and grandsons carrying the casket of a grandfather. A team carrying their coach after a victory. A child carrying their new pet out of a shelter to bring home and love. Telling someone you'll pray for them and then taking the time to carry their wants and needs straight to heaven because you know that day, they need your strength.
When was the last time you got carried away?
