You know something? I have noticed that I am a LOT more emotional since becoming a mom. I'm sure it had to do with hormones at first, but 3 years later, it shouldn't... but I can tear up at nearly anything, especially if it's "touching". I was tearing up at this little boy on Law & Order SVU just last week.

It's a mom thing definitely. songs crack me up, the tv or films crack me up, especially if it concerns children.

This time of year brings back awful memories of 4 years ago when a neighbours 10 year old died. He fell from a tree while collecting conkers. He used to play with my eldest in the street.

It affected me for a long long time and there was a song out called 'If I could turn back time' which was a sad ballad. I still have to turn off the radio when it comes on, just can't bare to listen to it Frowner
That reminds me of a similar situation... I had a good friend who rode my bus and we had dance class together... I had spent the night with her a couple times, she had a little brother about 4 or 5. One morning while he and his mom were at home, his mom answered the door only to be chased through the house and then shot on her back porch. The little boy ran to a neighbor's house and told them "my mommy needs a band-aid"... but it was too late.

A family friend drove me home from the funeral while playing "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" and I couldn't listen to that song for at least 15 years.

I remember seeing Neil's June (July?) 2002 show in NYC. He dedicated 'Anytime' to New Yorkers.

It got a great response, and I began to love the song even more after that. The sentiments of the song really got me through my last year in NYC.

Well, then Im a sap too, because that song gets me all goose bumpy and misty eyed too. It somehow doesnt feel like christmas until i hear that song.

BTW, anyone know where you can get that song anymore? I can't find it anyway, and i just gotta have it. Its my essential christmas song, and Im reduced to hoping to hear it on the radio.
