|Describe the last time you were moved to tears by something beautiful.
It does not take much to get me to cry. Hate to admit it but I am fairly emotional and not afraid to show it (personally that is not professionally). It can be a sunset, a coffee commercial or even a little boy sleeping in a stroller in a grocery store. Don't even get me started with songs! The "Cat's in the Cradle" has me sobbing with the first few recognizable notes. It has become a joke in my family.
Now that you know my demeanor, let me describe the most recent tear fest. It is so ridiculous but I could not stop. it appears that I cry most easily when it comes to parent/child relationships and the human dynamics that define them. Probably because I am so obsessed with my son (who by the way provides me with the most happiness I have ever felt as well as the most sorrow). I am not a huge Facebook person but someone send me a link to a video that showed young adult children calling on their parents for advice on simple things like home repairs and cooking. The last scene is the son asking the father about being in love and getting married. I CRIED MY EYES OUT!
Such a sap I am...I am feeling teary just thinking about it!
