I'm Such a Cry Baby
At night before the kids all go to bed I sit in the family room and read to them. In the course of a couple years we have read the entire Harry Potter series, Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, the Little House on the Prairie series to name a few.
Well, last night I read the final four chapters of Anne of Green Gables. This turned out to be quite the ordeal for me. Since I had read these books a number of times to myself I knew precisely what was happening next. As I read the last two chapters tears were flowing down my cheeks as I tried in vain to read without choking on nearly every word.
"Mom, are you alright?", my daughter inquired.
"Ya, I just just love this story," I replied intermittenly through sobs.
When it comes to a good story, bring on the bucket. There's gonna be a flood!
