I will admit I cry over many different things. Some of these things are very silly like the time I was brought tears as the awards were being given out at a cheerleader competition on ESPN. That's right I said ESPN as in on TV. I know it's weird but that is me. Of course the normal occasions such as weddings and funerals can turn me into a blubbering fool as well. Last night it was a different situation...THE SAINTS WINNING THE SUPERBOWL!!! I know seems cheesy even to a professional mourner like me!
In 2008 I married a French Cajun born and raised on the bayou. If you have ever been to the bayou then you know what a deep rich lovely thing it is to be connected to a French Cajun. The Cajun roots run so deep. Deep into the earth bound by life and death. Colored rich by the stories passed down from generation to generation. I am sure my husband thinks me silly but that's ok. Secretly I know he is proud of the richness of his heritage. I appreciate being connected even if only through marriage.
