Happy Fun Monday!


I'm hosting FUN Monday...woohoo!

My theme or topic is something that just came out and I apologize in advance if you find it a bit corny...but hey, I'd wish you all would participate as they say, being corny sometimes helps us stay young at heart! ;)

Let's talk about TEARS. What images spring to mind when you hear the word ‘tears’? Have you ever had tears of laughter and tears of joy? When was the last time you had tears of joy? Tears of laughter? Tell us about it!

What's with the topic?! Well I love crying...not that I am a sentimental person...just that CRYING for me is something we human beings are blessed with. Show me a person who do not appreciate the fact that he/she knows how to cry!

So what images spring to mind when I hear the word 'tears'? Well so many wonderful things...even the sad things that made me cry, they're wonderful to me as they all made me stronger. Yet...as weird as this may sound, when you ask me when was the last time I cried there is a greater chance that what I'll remember would be some happy moments!

Tears are words the heart can't express.

When I am too overwhelmed with joy or when I am overpowered with something I can't explain...I CRY. I guess it's my mind and my heart's way of telling me to just enjoy the feeling and stop bothering to know what it is.

I cry every Christmas...on my birthdays...when I watch a happy movie...when I get a surprise call from friends....when I see old friends again...when I read my old journals/diary...when I play with my nephew. I cry when I am happy. Even when I go to mass (Sunday service or other occasions) I cry during communion (though not always)...I cry when I see other people's happy...I cry when I hear success stories...

And I always feel good after!

Take note...when I say I cry...they can be just little tears in my eyes...not that I whimper! LOL

Not so long ago I had dinner with the IT Guy and I think he said something like he never thought he can be as happy...it was something so sweet and nice I cried. Well...we both cried. (And this is something TMI, but well...have you ever made love to your partner that it was so good that you cried after?! Because I have those moments!)

I cry every time I go shopping wit Mom...every time we play (yes we still do!). I grew up thinking we've lost her and well we still have her 'til now and it just feels so good having her around. And with Mom around...we (not just me) most of the time LOL 'til we got choked with our own tears because she has so much humor!

I cry every time Dad comes to me and hug me and ask me how I am....because in as much as I know he loves me (us) he rarely do that.

I cry every time I go through my cousins Facebook accounts...because it seems only yesterday when I was helping my Aunt feed them...and how they've grown and how proud I am for them...and I cry more every time they say they want to be like me! (What have I done to deserve that! LOL)

I cried in the plane on the way to Cebu thinking how R and his kids spent time with me...and how I enjoyed the company their company and how I feel loved and important!

I cried last night when the nephew saw the scar in my arm (remember that accident?!) and he almost cried and asked "Yayay?" (anything painful here is referred to as yayay by children) and then he kissed the scar...and hugged me like he was comforting me. Wow...even children can offer comfort!

Okay...maybe I am sentimental! Or maybe not...doesn't matter! LOL

Please sign up below if you are joining so others can visit you. I look forward to hearing from you people...

Wish you all a very happy Monday!

I need a host for next week... ;)

I'll be posting about laughing so hard tears were shed...

Count me in.

Janis said...

I am the same way, I cry over the smallest things, but I always feel better afterwards. Tears are a great stress reliever. Thanks for hosting. Happy Fun Monday!

Gattina said...

If you don't have a host for next week I am a volonteer ! Just had an inspiration while sitting ... doesn't matter where I sat.
I'll come back later because I am already up, without tears but with a cup of coffee !

Hootin' Anni said...

I just posted mine! Wow girlfriend....you could personally keep the kleenex/boxed tissue companies in business all by yourself to wipe away all your tears.

No, but seriously, I like the fact you're so sentimental and caring and loving.....you have a big heart!!! [I so loved the one where you both cried after your dear man's sweet words!!!!]

Happy Monday.

Mariposa said...

Gattina, you have it! I'm my way to work now and will link you up later. My internet just got back after a power outage...will visit the rest later.

jill said...

its nice that loving can be so good. i've been there, its a great feeling to have your heart so full of love for your honey that words would be useless, and tears have to do..

Faye said...

Well you'll never need to visit a shink for keeping emotions all bottled up Mariposa! I think that's wonderful that there are so many occasions in your everyday life that brings out this emotion. It's obvious that you love your family a great deal. Lucky girl!

Sayre said...

That was lovely... I cry a lot too, though mostly as a stress reliever. Movies, commercials, TV, I cry.

But I don't cry in a crisis. I take action and cry later after it's all over. I'm a little weird that way.

ChrisB said...

Sorry I've had to deviate as I'm away from home.

Gattina said...

Apparently you are the dream of all tissu producers !! they make a fortune with you, lol !

Stephanie, Mama Dramatist said...

You are a sweet and sensitive soul, dear one!

-MAXX- said...

I can honestly say that I've never cried after sex. I'm not sure how I would react if the woman I'm with did that.

-MAXX-

Gattina said...

I just checked who is the host for Fun Monday ?? You didn't announce anybody yet.
