A Simple Emotion

Sad. There are moments when I just feel sad, so I cry. I was having one of those moments as I went to bed last Friday night. As I cried on Aaron's shoulder, I told him that I just felt sad. Such a simple, pure emotion. It's not mixed with anger or confusion or regret or despair or anything. Just sad. And somehow, it's purity makes it almost beautiful to me. I appreciate the moments when I can just feel it, although I am simultaneously glad that those moments are only occasional occurences.

I'm so sorry you are having a sad moment. We have had those, and I assume we will have them periodically in the future as well. I remember the second or third night at the hospital doing the exact same thing with Evan. I asked him to climb into the hospital bed with me and I just buried my face in his chest and sobbed, because I was sad.
I'm so glad that it doesn't take long for happy to come back.

Monette, I understand those sad moments so much also. Today was one of those days for me. After a good cry, the sun came out and I was grateful to be alive to enjoy the beautiful sunshine.

Our Father's mercies are sometimes so simple and peaceful.

Hugs, Roxane

Sad moments are hard, but tears seem to be cleansing in those same moments.

I think about you every day, Monette. It is so sad. You're in my prayers.
