I had to fight the tears…

I recommend not watching this before you have to go out somewhere. I somehow managed to choke back my tears. I didn’t think I would make it to the end of that video but I did. I honestly want to cry my eyes out. That’s such a beautiful tribute to his late wife.

Bless this family.

I just had to share this.

What Would You Have Done?

Today I’m going to be posing a question…you see the other day I overheard someone crying. At first I was going to ignore it, because I’m not very good at comforting people (I just don’t know how to react) but instead something told me that I should go and see if this person was alright.

I gently knocked on the door. “Are you okay?”

When they replied with, “Everything’s fine Ryder. Thanks.” I decided not to press any further and to go back to watching Magnum P.I.

I don’t know why this has been on my mind since but I do feel kind of like I should’ve done more.

They stopped crying for a bit but I heard them again not long after, and I felt as though I should check again or let them know that I was there if they needed me.

I’m not someone who likes to get into people’s business, but something seriously moved in me. It was as thought I was making up for the time I heard them crying before and didn’t bother to check.

If you had been in this situation, would you have just asked and left it at that, kept pestering them until they told you what as wrong, or just mind your own business?

I feel like I’m over thinking this. I’m trying not to, but I know that I am. Let me know in your comments.

Novel Update: I am Crying Due to Research…

I take time nearly everyday to so do a bit of research for the novel I’m working on. Today I decided to look into some music, as music plays an important role not only in my novel, but in reality. It’s ability to speak to us is incredible…it can affect us deeply. While I was doing research on music for my novel to help myself determine how certain songs should either sound, and what was commonly found in the lyrics, I came across a gentle lullaby.

She started to sing. Her voice was full of such sorrow as if she were crying out to someone far away. Someone who she could not reach.

I could feel my heart drop. I became so choked up that I just had to stop what I was doing, stop and listen. I had heard many pretty songs but this was in a language I don’t understand and it touched me. I nearly shed tears. I don’t think a song has ever made me feel…it was just amazing.

Feel free to listen. I assure you, I’m not overreacting:

I did not expect myself to get teary eyed today. Then again, I don’t assume many of us plan when we are to cry.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
