To Whom It May Concern

Dear Universe,

It is not "that time of the month" nor is it at all possible that I am pregnant. I just need to get that cleared up first.

It is true that I am concerned about a few things. But nothing completely overwhelming. Yet.

It is also true that I am annoyed about a great many things. But nothing that can be cleared up right away, or ever in some cases.

With those disclaimers, I must also mention that I am not a weepy person. I do not tear up over commercials, greeting cards, or sad stories. Pictures of babies, puppies, rainbows, etc. do not provoke any noticeable response from me. I have never been prone to giggling or any other type of mood swinging (except the volatile teenage years and those don't count and even then I only cried when I was absolutely spitting mad).

So why, on a perfectly sunny, normal day, did a Coldplay song nearly bring me to tears? Fortunately for me, there was no one else in the car at the time. But nearly crying while driving is probably not the safest thing.

Either I must give up Coldplay or this strange response must go. So please have this anomaly (and everything else that annoys me) fixed ASAP.

Thanks so much,
Karen

Let me know if the Universe gives you an answer. I have never cried to Coldplay but I have at things just as out of the blew.

Isn't it sad to hear a song and cry or almost cry? There is a country song I heard the other day about wishing this was a river bank instead of a graveyard. I fished with my Dad and it brought back such memories that I cried.And smelling Irish Spring soap makes me cry too. Daddy used that kind of soap and the smell of it will bring on the tears. I guess tears kind of cleanses the tear ducts out on occasion.

I've never heard of Coldplay before. What kind of music is that?

Don't worry, it's cabin fever. It should be cleared up by July. ;)

Now you know that under the hard exterior of your emotions lies a marshmallow center. It happens more frequently as time goes by so try not to let it bother you. That just adds to these episodes. ;)

I submit that the following lyrics would make anyone just a bit choked up (which is all that happened to me, I might add):

"What if I got it wrong?
And no poem or song
Could put right what I got wrong
Or make you feel you belong
What if you should decide
That you don't want me there by your side
That you don't want me there in your life?"

Closely followed by:

"Every step that you take
Could be your biggest mistake
It could bend or it could break
But that's the risk that you take"

Along with a beautiful melody & harmony, naturally. What can I say? It sent a lump straight to my throat.

Come over to my blog and pick up an award.

I don't think you need to worry too much about taking wrong steps. We might follow blindly (faith) but the leader isn't blind (God). He's a very good guide.

No one else loves you as much as God does but no one else that loves you will stop loving you either.

Music always makes me cry.
