Prompt #11 – [Insert Sad Face]
Written on March 9, 2011 by admin in Weekly Prompts
Life isn’t always sunshine and happiness. In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Into each life some rain must fall”. Sometimes we are sad, angry, maybe even a little depressed. Even though this might not be the face we show the world, these feelings are still a big part of who we are. Let’s delve into the “flip side” of laughter … share a story of a time when you were down or upset. How do you deal with these feelings? Do they inspire change in your life? Do you hide them from others or look to others to help you through them?

Journaling: The night before my induction, I found myself alone missing my mom more than life itself. I had separated myself from John and Jack because H1N1 virus was going around and I didn’t want to fight that while in labor, so I was sleeping in the baby’s new room. The overwhelming sense of sadness engulfed me and I just laid there sobbing. Mom had passed away just after John and I were engaged. She wouldn’t know either of my kids personally and the tragedy of that was too much for me to handle. I just wanted her to be with me to tell me it would be okay. I wanted to know about her experiences with childbirth and what to really expect. I wanted my mommy! But that was impossible and John came in to comfort me. Reassuring me that everything would be fine and to offer his support. I am thankful for John’s support, but there is nothing quite like the comfort of your mother’s touch. ~ October 2009
