Why are tears necessary? What bothers me most about them is I have little to no control of when they will come rolling out of my eyes? They come as an outward sign of an emotion I am experiencing and are not always timely in their appearance. There are times that I do not wish to share my emotions publicly! Today was one of those days, I just wanted to be little Miss put together in the middle of a emotional storm.

Have you ever noticed that tear (the salty drops that fall from your eyes) and tear (to pull or rip something apart) are spelled the same but have a different meaning? Or do they? When I cry, it may be due to a strong emotion which is ripping me apart. Like today, I was struggling with emotions regarding Kathryn and I felt broken as a result of my inability to care for her the way I want to. My inward emotions and feelings were ripping me apart (tear) and outwardly I could not stop crying (tear). Ok they are different, but how interesting that they often go hand in hand.

What is my point? I don't have one, just rambling...
