there is a sacredness in tears. they are not a mark of weakness, but of power. they are messengers of overwhelming grief and of unspeakable love.
there was a time in my life when i went a few years without really crying. and then one day the cloud just became too heavy and it burst forth in a torrential downpour that lasted several months. thankfully, i had a really strong shoulder to cry on.
a good, long, deep cry can be so freeing. a release from all of the heavy things which weigh upon our hearts. and if you've been hanging on for a while, it can be life changing. so go ahead...let them fall.
