    Default use Moved in a positive way?

    Hi,

    Can you say "The birthday wishes really moved me" (but in a posivite way?)


    I know 'heart warming' is not common to say, so would 'moved' be right in a positive context?

    Thanks

    Thanks
    See definition 5a (transitive verb). Moved - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
