We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?
Years ago I cried at the drop of a hat. I was overly sensitive, but life and maturity made me stronger in a way, but at the same time it took something from me. Don’t get me wrong, I still cry when I watch a really sad movie, or when I watch ET and he supposedly dies….And Mr. Rockstar thinks it’s cute. It’s one of the things he loves about me. For example, I’ll be in my recliner reading a book and I’ll laugh out loud or I’ll start crying and he’ll say, “You okay?” and he’s smiling when he says it. He’s just making sure everything’s alright. I’m just swept away by emotion.
Being swept away by emotion is a good thing especially when you are shedding tears of joy. I believe that the last time I cried happy tears was when my daughter was looking through the scrapbook I made her for Mother’s Day. I gave it to her the other week, which is early I know, so that she could gather pictures I don’t have or have access to so I can make some more pages. She began to cry because she was so overwhelmed by it, and they were happy tears. She said, “This is so much better than a baby book.” And it is. I left room on various pages for her to write stuff. I left some room on a few pages for her to add pictures to. She was crying because she was so happy I’d taken the time to make it for her, and I was crying because she was happy so I was happy. Happy Happy Joy Joy!
And the last time I cried before that because I was swept away by happiness has to do with Mr. Rockstar. He surprises me with little things, just because, and sometimes it’s a flower, sometimes it’s coffee, sometimes it’s doing the dishes, sometimes it’s cooking dinner or bringing dinner home,….I began to cry over something he did that was sweet and considerate and he said, “Baby, you okay?” I nodded and told him they were happy tears and he said, “Oh okay. Those are allowed.” And he smiled at me.
(Life is good when you can cry happy tears!)
