Question of the Week - Happiness and Tears

Copyright (c) 123RF Stock Photos

Have you ever been so happy you cried?

I have. When my then boyfriend proposed to me, I got teary eyed. Again on our wedding day. The first time I held son #1 and then son #2. I'm sure I will for baby #3. So I guess some of the major milestones in my life I've been so happy I cried.

I have too. When we adopted my daughter and I held her for the first time. Can't wait for your good news announcement.

Annalisa Crawford said...

By your standards, I'm a major weeper - I well up at the big stuff, but I'm just as likely to have a tear in my eye watching my youngest son role-play with his toys, or belly-laugh at adult humour (not 'adult', just grown-up humour), or my eldest telling me he loves me... Okay, the question for me should be: when are you NOT in tears, and do you have time for anything else?

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Heck, I cry while watching happy stories on the news or overly joyous parts in movies. Yep, I cry easily. I'm with Annalisa as to what the more appropriate question should have been. :)

I'm with Annalisa--yes, I cry for big things, but also for small ones. For some reason, live music played really well gets me every time.

I think it's a mommy thing. I laugh until I cry more though. :)

RachelMaryBean said...

I cried when each of my four kids were born.
Can't wait to hear the news on your #3!

Stephen Tremp said...

No, I usually just keep laughing until people tell me to shut the bleep up. True. Sometimes I get started and just can't stop.

Sarah Ahiers said...

hmm, not for me personally. I've gotten misty eyed at friend's weddings, just because i'm so happy for them.
Sometimes i cry because i love people in my life so much, but that's not quite the same thing

Joshua said...

I'm with Sarah. Just misty eyed at certain times, but not really.

Johanna Garth said...

I think the question for me would be have I ever been overjoyed and not cried! LOL I cry easily!

Sarah Allen said...

Haha :) Great question. I have this weird thing about crying...I don't. Almost ever, unless I'm alone. There have, however, been a few movies that got me teary eyed, though I can't remember whether it was from sorrow or joy. I think both, actually :)

I cry allllllllll the time for basically any emotion, lol. I guess I'm just sensitive, so of course I decided to become a struggling author, lol. BTW, no baby yet but you'll have a book to read soon:) Did you see my post yet? ~hugs

I'm a crier for happy things. I balled the entire ceremony when I got married. I might have cried when my daughter was born but I was so doped up from meds I really can't remember.

Brinda said...

Not usually..but a few times. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Not the crying type but I know what you mean.

I guess there is no baby yet. I hope by the time you read this you are crying your eyes out with joy.

I cry all the time when I am happy, or really emotional in any way. Those sucker just flow!

Aw, those are happy things, to be sure! I'm so lame--I can't remember a time when I was so happy I cried. Though, it takes a lot to make me teary so .... Maybe I never have? I've certainly been happy enough, though :)

Beth said...

I don't really cry when I'm happy, but sometimes I wish I could.
I hope baby comes soon. I'm excited for you. I keep watching for the announcement.
