Day 1878 - I cry

When dreams come true I cry.  

Surprised teen meets One Direction on the Ellen Degeneres Show
I'm one of these weird people that doesn't often cry when I'm sad.  I live in an upside down world and cry when I'm happy.

When a teen gets to meet her idols, One Direction, on the Ellen show, I cry.

When someone wins the showcase on The Price is Right, I cry.

When my cheerleaders performed on stage for the first time, I cried.

When my daughter's group stunt won at Nationals for the first time, I cried.

When I went to my first concert at fifteen to see WHAM! I cried.

When I won the blogger trip to Disneyland in LA, I cried.

When I see someone else win a trip of a lifetime, I cry.

When my first book was published, I cried.

When I see another author get their first book published, I cry.

When I watch my son perform with his class for the school assembly, I cry.

When I see a young child yahoo and show complete shock and excitement when opening Christmas gifts, I cry.

When I see a footballer play his last ever game with his home crowd on their feet cheering in gratitude and appreciation, I cry.

When somebody goes out of their way to help someone else's dream come true, I cry.

When a child or parent comes to me and says "thank you for making a difference" I cry.

Why do I cry?

I don't know.  I've tried to work it out.  I think I cry in pride, in gratitude, in love and in hope.

When dreams come true I cry.  

Whether they're my dreams or someone else's.  

I just cry. 

Damn it! 

What makes you cry?


  1. No it's not just you I tend to sob when I see others so overwhelmed! I hope you have a happy weekend x

  2. The school concert brings me to tears - my eldest looked at me and said with that teen attitude "What's wrong with you??"

  3. I cry in joy and sadness too, but also in anger and that sometimes just pisses me off even more because then I feel like I'm so weak, especially when I'm so angry trying to reason with someone else and they see me cry!

  4. It's me too - at the most mundane things.

    I once cried reading my son a book -with a sad bit in it.

    The other day I saw a video of the boy opening the chopping board (not in English). He was so grateful to his poor parents - then the shock excitement when he opened the real Christmas gift - a tablet!

    The airline surprise doing the rounds this year too. It makes me bawl.

  5. I cry over tv shows and sad pet stories like most people (I think!) but a birth always leaves me sobbing- I have been a birth attendant 4 times now and watched far too many episodes of one born every minute and it never gets old!

  6. Me too!! Actually - I'm topsy turvy. I cry at happy things and I cry at sad things. I basically cry all the time! lol ;-) x

  7. What a beautiful post, Leanne!

  8. I think that's awesome!
    I remember one Christmas we bought our eldest earrings with the promise to get her ears pierced and she burst into tears. It was quite gorgeous :)

  9. I cry at inspirational stuff too. I have the Nancy Tilman book Wherever You Go My Love Will Follow and I still tear up every time I read it to my children.

  10. Lately I have been trying NOT to cry! Seeing a Chinese Herbalist and having acupuncture has released tears over everything and anything.
    When we used to have a TV I would cry with certain ads!
    Now days I cry when I read certain things online.
    Guess its a female hormonal thing?


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
