let your tears fall...

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.
-washington irving-

 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.
