Sometimes it’s the little things that get you.

.

On a dark and rainy day last week I picked up my phone and started scrolling through Facebook.

There’s a lot wrong with that platform and what it’s become, but it’s still the best way I know to keep up with family and old friends.

I have a SIL who plays those silly games and repeatedly answers all the questions you shouldn’t …. and while I don’t usually pay attention to that password phishing nonsense? This one got my attention.

.

.

Not for the question itself. My SIL has lost her husband, her mother, her father and her brother so I didn’t expect to be surprised by her answer.

But I was.

.

.

Because even though she’d lost a lot of her family? My SIL chose to hug my late mother….

And damn it, that made me cry.

  1. I don’t know if you’ve heard of BILY (Because I Love You) gifts, but those often make me cry, too.

    And don’t accuse me of being a crier. My pragmatic, slightly autistic husband squeezed most of my tears out of me. Hard to cry when you literally get no response.
