Ok ladies, I'm not sure if any of you have been faced with something like this before but I hope for your sakes- not. So today I was driving down Academy Blvd (a major road here in Colorado Springs) and there is this cemetery on the right that I pass probably a dozen times a week. Every now and again I'll see a funeral taking place, people gathered around tombstones or chairs set up beneath a tent. But today as I was driving by I glance over casually; my eyes immediately drawn to flag-draped casket in the distance. I saw the tent with chairs filled with family and friends... I don't know why it really went the way it did but a thousand thoughts passed through my mind and I started crying immediately. I was completely overwhelmed but couldn't force myself to look away. I don't know why but when I glanced over casually (as I usually do when I drive by) I became fixated and as emotional as the sight was to see... I couldn't stop. Granted this entire experience lasted all of 2 minutes tops, while I was stopped at the light. All of a sudden I was being honked at; which startled me but got me moving past what I was staring at. Either way it motivated me to get going. I cried like a fool all the way home.
I'm not really sure what else to say about this but really I just needed to get it off my chest!
