On My Sleeve

Yep-that's where I wear my emotions! Always have & most likely will for the rest of my life. There are many a times I wish I didn't. It happened this week @ work. The situation left me sad, frustrated & with puffy eyes. I hate getting "all female"(as DF would say- love that term D) in the work place. My whole point in sharing this is that I found a great quote that I really liked today. I thought I would share it.

"There is sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messages of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love".

- Washington Irving

Great quote! I love finding thought-provoking quotes, and that's a really good one. And, the fact that you are more open with your emotions is what makes you so easy to relate to, Raimi. Thanks for sharing ...

I hope everything turned out o.k. I don't like when a friend is sad. Sorry. I sometimes wish a would/could cry more. I seem to during a good song, while driving in the car or watching a good movie.
Thanks for always being a GREAT
friend!!!

I'm not sure what's better. Wearing your heart on your sleeve or keeping it ALL bottled in and completely losing it a few times a year. Hope you're feeling better.
