The Red Dress Club had a photo prompt this week.

When I looked at the photo titled “Resigned“, I didn’t think about how creative I could be… all I could think about was the number of times I’ve cried lately.

Just last night, I cried when I put Ronan to bed and he was coughing so hard he was gasping.  I cried because I couldn’t do anything for him, and it was killing me.

I cried when I watched this season’s premier of House.

I cried yesterday afternoon when I watched Toy Story 3 for the first time.

I cried this weekend when I scanned a patient that was having a miscarriage after she had just lost her 11 day old daughter to an infection she acquired while she was in the hospital.  I cried and cried and cried.

This morning, someone I care about got some very good news, and I spent a few minutes wiping away happy tears.

I know I’m hormonal, and things just seem to make me so much more emotional than they usually do, but I don’t mind.

It feels good to cry.

Also, I will be posting some pictures shortly.  It’s been a while!

    I’m so happy that you were able to connect with one of the prompts.

    I’ve been crying all over the place lately too. Some happy tears, so not. But all of those tears serve as a reminder that I am alive and that this life is such a blessing.

    I hope that Ronan is no longer coughing and is on the mend.
    House gets me every time. I love that show beyond reason.
