I heard about a guy that made a list of the reasons why his wife cried & he posted it online...
I totally related to some of the things...
& then I made a new 'note' on my phone & marked down every time the past 7 days why I tears up, cried or got choked up about...
... thinking about my root canal I have to have done (again)... & getting a new crown (again)
... having dental pain pop up that was new & not even related to the first procedure I have scheduled. Odds are, yet ANOTHER root canal & crown.
... Vertigo getting on my nerves
... being nauseated from medicine for vertigo
... hanging a Christmas ornament that friends gave us last year in honor of Sydney
... hearing Josh Groban's version of "O Holy Night"
... seeing a bunch of trees on my drive home from work that was plowed down to build a little strip mall.
... when I heard about Yolanda & Davis Foster's divorce
... watching a video from Ellen of a little girl singing to her mom that has cancer with Martina McBride
... Watching Fred Claus where the elves all watch the kids opening their presents on Christmas morning
... the texts people were sending out to their family when the shooters in California had them cornered
... the pictures & stories of all the people that were killed in this shooting
... the story of the man protecting the woman, telling her, "I got you"
... the story of the man who was told his partner was at the hospital & in surgery - come to find out, the information was wrong & his spouse was killed & his body was still in the building.
...watching a video on Facebook about 2 older people talking about what Loneliness is to them & in their world
... singing worship in church
... talking to someone & telling them how much I miss my old church & the feeling of having a home church - especially at Christmas
... listening to the women's ministry leader talking about upcoming events at the church we've been visiting & it just making me miss my friends
... reading a book about "Animals in Heaven" in Sam's Club ... (Note: this had serious tears falling from my face dripping everywhere on the books!)
... reading the latest blog post Rory wrote about his wife Joey (Right here)
... the last few pages of the book, After I Fall, I was reading about a girl who dies but relieves her last day over & over again
... seeing the end of Polar Express. I've never seen the movie but just happened to turn it over at the last 5 minutes & just the very end about the bell? ... yep, I was tearing up...
Anything make you choke up lately?
