Happy Tears

Women cry for many reasons.  When we are happy, sad, frustrated.  Sometimes we don't need a reason to cry at all.  The tears simply fall.

Last night I had reason.  Sometimes I feel guilty about being a stay at home mom.  I don't bring home a paycheck.  The house isn't perfectly clean.  The kids get behind on school work....

The list goes on.

Dragon knows me so well.  Winter is when it gets the worst.  Bills stack up, the kids get cranky and I get frustrated.

We were in the truck headed to the grocery store.  Dragon was messing with the CD player as he was backing out of the driveway.  (no it isn't dangers, you would have to see our driveway to understand.)  And a song began to play...

You're My Best Friend

You place gold on my finger
you brought me love like I have never known
you gave life to our children
and to me, a reason to go on

You're my bread when I am hungry
Your're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's oceans
but most of all, you're my best friend

When I need hope and inspiration
You're always strong when I am tired and weak
I could search the whole world over
You'd still be everything I need

You're my bread when I am hungry
You're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's oceans
but most of all, you're my best friend

Dragon sang along.  He can't carry much of a tune but I thought it was beautiful.  By the end of the song I was singing along too, with tears falling.  I have the best husband in the world.
