Is it okay to cry? Or is that being ungrateful. Should you stuff down emotion, dashing away any drop of moisture that wells up unbidden? Does anger overcome sadness as you tell yourself that you’re being selfish, why does it have to be such a big deal?

Really, if I weigh blessings  vs. troubles then the scales would be largely in the positive. I mean, there was good exercise, good study, wonderful show of friendship yesterday, an unexpected free meal – complete with ice cream! – a good jog, time with a kid, and lessons in a new sport.

How can two things so cloud all other happenings? Maybe its just the stacking of the two, the pressure of one unable to be released by the second. I struggle to keep things in perspective, and I’m not doing so well, that’s why I ask; is it okay to cry?
