"Bring your lamp to those without light, enkindle the flame of love in those without hope." (Tagore) ~from a holy card I picked up in Rome in 2005 . . .
I began this blog as a place to share some of the things that have increased my hope during challenging times--with the hope that it may do the same for others as well. I welcome your comments.

One thought on “Go ahead and cry”
That is truly the work of compassion, “being with” those who are sorrowing. It is a gift beyond measure to those in pain, to have one to journey with them in the sadness of the moment, the moment of tears. Cry and release. Jesus cried tears as he wept at the tomb of Lazarus. Tear ducts and tears are a gift. In my Hospice work, I always called them pressure relief valves, given for men and women. Great post, and so true.
