I’m sorry 🙁 I have days where I get sad over the smallest, most trivial things in the world. It doesn’t make sense. And no one else understands. I hope your day gets better!

That’s not a small thing!Something similar kind of happened to me. My grandmother passed away 3 weeks before my wedding. Her wedding gift to us – a complete set of new, beautiful, modern dishes – arrived the day after she died. My husband accidentally chipped one of the bowls the other day, and I was devastated. These things are all tied into huge, real emotions!

I agree with KaitlinHudson, I get the same way as well! I think these things happen we you have more of an emotional connection to something rather then just a connection to having the physical item. My Uncle game me a bracelet for grad and fter he passed away it started to tarnish…i cried *laugh* It seems so silly but i think its healthy to have emotions like this.

I hope you feel better 🙂

In my family we call those EOM– emotional overload moments-  If we feel sad- we announce Im having a EOM– and everyone gives you a moment to let it wash over you.  I find it better to just ride that wave- than fight it– 

( if you read previous posts- Im dealing with a lot of cancer in the family)> If I hold it all in I just cry and cry. If I just let it flow when I think about it- it isnt as debilitating. 

No one has to fix it , or fix you-just let it wash through, and move on with the day.

It’s completely understandable! We were moving the other day and Mr. C went to throw out this crumpled piece of paper form our kitchen. I literally dove for the garbage can as he was doing it because it was a recipe my favorite aunt (who passed away this year) wrote down for me in her crazy handwriting. I had to stop what I was doing and just breathe for a second to be able to function. I can not believe she won’t be able to be there in a few weeks, but I know she’s watching somewhere. I hope you feel a little better soon!
