I'm not sure about everyone else, but right before I cry, my nose tingles and burns. Is that weird? I have heard that some people get a lump in their throat, or some people get a slight chest pain, but my whole life, my nose gets a tingling/burning sensation as my eyes fill with tears. Maybe everyone does? I really don't know. Anyway..... Let me just tell you. That little tingling/burning sensation hiding inside my nose? It seriously sneaks up on me about every fifteen minutes. It is the strangest thing. I am literally on the verge of tears at all times. Happy tears or sad tears? Heck if I know.
Anyway. On to what I really wanted to post about today.
People are so fabulous. Honestly, today is one of those days that I literally am in awe over how genuinely kind people can be. I received a facebook message from Chelan today telling me a few things that lifted my spirits immensely. I don't know why she randomly thought to send it to me, but it was honestly exactly what I needed at that exact moment. I am certain she was inspired. Naturally, it brought me to tears. I'm not sure if they were happy, or sad.. I'm thinking a mixture of both... but I appreciated the couple minutes she took out of her day to send me such a sweet message. Thanks Chelan. =)
There is that burning nose feeling again. Goodness I am such a girl.
There has been a number of other people who have been absolutely incredible to me today. I don't think they even realize it, but these small gestures have meant the world to me. A smile in a hallway, a hug in passing, and then a return for another hug when it was realized that I wasn't quite okay, advice on my future, help on my school application, an email reminding me that I am loved from miles away, a few words of encouragement, a shoulder to cry on, an offer to hangout if I'm lonely, and even something as simple as a look of kindness. People are so great.
