It's OK to Cry

Sometimes we moms have a lot on our minds and we don't even realize it. Are they really sick? Are they having an appendicitis? Or do they need to poop? Should I try to go to the gym and stay in shape or should I rest and put up my varicose vein laden leg (I say leg because I only have them on the right! Weird.) Should I make a big dinner and will I have energy to clean up the dishes? What if I don't get around to vacuuming...ever? Will _____, who dropped by today, judge me forever as a bad housekeeper because I hadn't been able to get past the medicine droppers/hug me mommy/poopy diapers to do some chores today? It's funny how all these almost subconscious thoughts can really take a toll...so today when my doctor told me to take some Sudafed for what I thought was a potentially hearing impairing ear infection, I cried...because it had been building up. And now I feel better...It's OK to cry sometimes.

Oh honey. It is okay to cry sometimes. I broke down constantly in the hospital this last go round and everyone told me to let it out and that it was good for the soul to just cry.

You are amazing and every one of us moms feels the same way. Especially with people dropping by our less than perfect (more like disaster zone) homes.

I hope you feel better. Take the sudafed.

I cry too and I recently read another blog post along these same lines and I so wish I could remember it so I could send you over, when it comes to me I will come back...in the mean time

God wouldn't have given us tears if we weren't meant to cry.
