song that makes me cry...

I'm not sure.  I can't think of any off the top of my head.  And by "the top of my head" I mean the last 2 weeks I've had to think about it.  The only ones that seem to come to mind are songs that have touched me once or twice in the past but don't really make me cry anymore.  They are "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle and "Skin" (Sarabeth) by Rascall Flats.  Any tender daddy/daughter stuff gets me. Always has.  And since I was young I've always had a thing for cancer stories.  I can't explain it.  I wouldn't say its one of my greatest fears... because I'm not terrified of it but I always get an eerie feeling of "closeness" with the subject.  Not that I have any personal link to it but the feeling always lingers near.  Do any of you understand what I'm trying to say?


  1. I get it. Ive always had this feeling of not "if" but "when". I'm not scared, maybe a little concerned but it just seems like I've always been prepared for some reason. Who knows if it will be soon or many many years down the road.
    I think those thoughts are not to be confused for dismal, negative thoughts, just precautious. Possibly gentle preparation?

  2. Cancer stories have a major affect on me too! I don't know why, but they do. I wanted to be an oncologist for a little while, until I decided I would get too attached to my patients to let go. But, like you, I've always felt "near" with the subject.
