Let the tears fall!

My grieving process has, more times than not, left me in a puddle of tears. Tears reveal our humanity and the frailty of our human hearts especially when we suffer from a tremendous loss. While I don't want to wallow in my grief, I believe crying is one of the healthiest outlets for it. Joyce Landorf Heatherley, author of the Mourning Song, even says, "Crying is a natural part of the grieving process." It removes toxins, reduces tensions and increases the body's ability to heal itself, so let the tears fall!
