I have been crying tears of joy the last couple of days. I’m a total sap and a little tenderness makes my eyes leak. It’s so much nicer to cry because you are happy or touched than it is to cry because you are sad.
About a week ago, my prima asked me for my address. Yesterday I get a small package in the mail from Origami Owl. I couldn’t open it right away because I was workin’ and work is so fast paced I can’t stop for distractions.
Anyway, when I get a chance, I open the box and find this locket that was created especially for me by my prima. It has a blog charm, a laptop charm, a mom charm, and a flower charm. I LOVE IT. And there was a note included in it reminding me of what a blessing it is to do what you love and love what you do. That’s it, I burst into tears.
I was so touched by my cousins thoughtful gesture. I love her very much. That love goes back to our early childhood when we bonded. To be honest, I don’t remember much from our relationship back then because I was so young, but I have a deep and abiding love for her because of shared time together. That was so long ago and we’ve spent so little time together since then and it meant so much to me that I was in her thoughts and that she cared enough to create something so lovely for me. Ugh! I’m crying again.
Today, I burst into tears again because of a man I don’t even know. His daughter posted the following video on Reddit with the caption, “Told my dad he is going to be a grandpa I am his only child and my mother passed away 20 years ago. He has been asking us for grandchildren since our wedding night. I think he is happy. :).” Even without the caption the video would have made me cry, but with the caption it was cry me a river of happiness over here. See for yourself.
I hope your week has given you joy even if it didn’t result in tears of joy.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
(don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):
Who says you have to be sad to cry?
