Last few days have been oddly emotional for me, for dumb reasons... like watching the tv show Bones, like listening to John Denver's Rocky Mountain High on my drive to work on WINY Radio...
Yup, I feel like this at a moment's notice, and sometimes without any notice at all:
Clearly, it is not the tv show or the song I am really crying over. It is a deeper thing that I don't want to focus on...
Since I don't like to dwell on sad stuff... and sad stuff does happen to all of us... There are no explanations for it other than "that is life", so sometimes I guess I think it is easier to bury to real stuff and cry over a song.
Well, I guess we really all do know what it is that is bothering us when it boils right down to it. We each deal with it how we can.
This week, what got to me was that another friend that I went to high school with, lost their young adult son. This is the 3rd friend that I grew up with that has lost a child. I find that unacceptable, yet I can do nothing about it. That gets me thinking of all of the other losses people have endured. Sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, grandparents, spouses, best friends.... the list does not end.
Luckily, time does heal a bit, but it is so hard to watch your loved ones waiting for that time to pass.
Good thing I am not in charge of everything, as I would like to be.... because there would be a big overpopulation problem.
Love your loved ones, as often and sincerely as you can.
In the meantime, I will cry over a stupid song when something is really bothering me.
I am a Putnamaniac because I do know what is really bothering me, and I wish I could take the hurt away from all those that I love.
