Confession: I cry at car insurance commercials.
I also cry at movies, television shows (even comedies), weddings, funerals, sometimes even sporting events. I cry when I am happy. I cry when I am sad. I cry when I am really, really angry. So, suffice to say that I am a mildly emotional girl. So, you get it? It doesn't take much to make me cry.
I usually do funny on here. But this blog is about more than just funny things. It's about everything that touches me as a parent; about everything that I think is worth sharing. I don't care if you're the toughest, most stoic person alive... if this doesn't make you emotional, your heart is made of stone.
This tornado that hit Joplin Missouri last week, I can't make sense of it. Not that I can make sense of the one that hit Ringgold, Gerogia (where part of my family lives) or Tuscaloosa, Alabama or Smithville, Mississippi... All I can say is that my heart and prayers are with all of them. My fears remain here with the rest of us.
