But tonight, I cry

Whenever emotions threaten to overwhelm me, once the crying has finally subsided, I’m able to remember that I’m in good company.

I pray for the mothers who have come before me who have lost a child and I cry for the mothers who are unaware that this kind of suffering awaits them, patiently.

How blessed I was to never entertain the notion of this kind of loss. When my world once again expands beyond my self and I’m able to be a little more objective, I’ll remember that there are many souls in pain much greater than mine. They are legion.

But tonight, I cry.
