the tracks of my tears

Some people say I cry easily. I guess it’s true. I feel things deeply. And I have no problem letting those deep feelings overflow in the form of big, fat, salty tears that roll gently, slowly, and sweetly down my cheeks. I am at peace with crying. I’ve learned to be totally OK with it, […]

You Are the Wind Beneath My Wings

“DITTO!” was all it took to bring tears to me eyes. You wouldn’t think one word at the end of a tweet from someone you don’t “know,” retweeted by someone else you don’t “know,” would make you cry. But it did. Actually, to be honest, it was the combination of the tweet, the “DITTO!”, and […]
