I think sometimes I feel Умиление !   but how could I know?  I don't speak or understand Russian so you please tell me what it means.  Better yet, you tell me what it means and then you tell me about when you feel it and what makes you feel it !   ;)

It means "tenderness". get all warm and fuzzy.  :)
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
