Like the Willows

I've been feeling kind of weepy the past day or two. Why? My only explanation has to be hormones. I'm not normally an overly emotional person. Let me redeem myself before I go too far: I have one SUPER good friend that I get emotional around when we visit but that's just because I'm always overwhelmed by her greatness. She is a beautiful woman with a beautiful family. I feel very blessed to know them, let alone to call her and her husband our good friends. So when we do visit them maybe 2 or 3 times each year I do find myself getting sappy when we're together. Usually it's when she and I are walking through the grocery store or something equally ridiculous and I realize how fortunate I am to have a wonderful friend who is perfectly content just doing normal "mom" stuff together. Yeah, she's great. I love her!

Anyhow, for the most part I really don't allow myself to get emotionally overwhelmed very often. But over the course of the past two days I've found myself actually starting to tear up a couple of times. I don't like it. I'm kind of calloused and have developed a laissez faire attitude about people and things around me so I was surprised to suddenly just get sad over seemingly nothing. Go figure.

I must be getting ready to shed.
