Why I Cry Easily at Sappy Things

You know that I've been introspective.  I've shared why I run.  I've shared why I write.  All caught up?  Great.  Let's keep going.

I cut the grass and raked brush the other week.  Although I didn't notice it while it was happening, it tore up my hands.  Sweaty and hot, I came inside and inspected my blisters.


Par for the course.  Apparently I've got soft hands.  They blister easily with minimal friction.

I think of other areas in my life that are sensitive, this time in a good way.  I want to have a tender heart.  Give me a lip-dub proposal, draw me into a 52-second romance, remind me that my kids are growing up in a blink, or show me a father's love for his little girl, and I'm a sucker.

Oh yes, I cry easily at sappy things.  It's a good kind of soft.

I can't be the only one.  What book, movie, song, or commercial gets you every time?

  3. I make Steph tear up when I dance with my daughters when "I danced with Cinderella" by Stephen Curtis Chapman plays.

    Oy, this could be embarrassing! :) There was a Simpsons episode where one of Bart or his Grandpa saved the other from drowning and they had a little moment - and I cried. I don't typically watch the Simpsons, but I did one day - and it made me cry. There was also a commercial at one time about a couple planning for their daughter's education - and it was sappy, of course - it made me break down every time! So silly... Everything makes me cry!

  6. Pretty much everything makes me cry, especially the Olympics. It doesn't matter who wins, when I see how happy they are I just cry.

  7. Oh man! I forgot about the Olympics. It reduces me to mush, too!

  9. I was just at a wedding and the father-daughter dance made me tear up, too! I was projecting into the future and thinking about my husband eventually doing this three times!
