We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?
I’m an emotional person, this can sometimes be a good and a bad thing. When this prompt came through to my iPhone, the first thing I thought was I haven’t written a Daily Prompt in ages. The second thought I had was I have probably had tears of joy and sadness many times.
I can vividly remember the day I met my beautiful niece Pippa.
On that day I had many tears of joy.
Pippa was a stubborn little girl she should have arrived long before I flew to California.
Annoyingly for me I received a text from my mum in the early hours of my first day in Long Beach that just said Pippa.
As I was groggy and a little jet-lagged it took me a few seconds to process this information. That was when I was tearful. My family were amazing they sent me lots of pictures whilst I was away.
When I got home I could see the small bundle of joy sat in her chair. I could feel my eyes watering and when my sister passed her to me I cried and said Hello Pip I’m your mad auntie Hayley.
There were more tears when my sister produced a present from Pippa, which was a frame of pictures of the first two weeks of her life while I was away.
