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.
