Bawling for God-sake

From daughter, Sember:

I too am so looking forward to Christmas. And yes I will probably cry. But it is good to cry. Especially when one is crying for such a lovely reason. It felt good to let myself realize in the moment that this is hard. And do what I needed physically in order to deal with what I was living emotionally in a way that God created me to do. So, in other words crying is Godly. And as such and because of the time I have clocked weeping, sobbing, crying, pouting, and general boo-hooing, I am damn near the most devout, Godly person I know.

This made me burst with laughter...because haven't we all been there? I wish I had that same response! Margie, we are looking forward to having you with us this weekend at our retreat.

I dunno. Sember is very cool and I'm sure very Godly, but I cry a lot. Lots. I might be her rival.

Jenni, I'm certain you are.

Well, I meant in the crying dept., just to be clear. :)
