There's not a lot that makes me cry. I was never a big crier, in general. Then I had kids and all random stuff about kids, or families, or illness made me cry. Motherhood has made me much more emotional, compassionate and sensitive; to a degree I had never felt prior. Today I read a quote and in a blink of an eye I felt the tears welling up and letting go. It's always the littlest things now. I feel like I've never felt the passing of time go by as quickly as the day I became a mom for the first time.
