You are reading from the book Today's Gift
The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.
—John Vance Cheney

If there were no rain, fields would become parched and brittle, and many creatures would die. If we could not cry, all our emotions would eventually dry up, too, and soon we would not laugh either. Our tears cleanse us. Our tears heal. They make us whole.

Tears are as important to our growth as rain is to a flower. They help release the pressure of sadness so we can feel better. After a storm, when the sun shines again through the clouds, a brightly colored rainbow appears. After our tears, our inner sun shines, and rainbows are formed from our pain.

How well can I accept my tears as part of my happiness today?
Tears of happiness is good. They are cleansing and good for the soul too. I am really hurting today because of the weather and I think my emotional and mental state due to my son`s action, or non-actions and not getting on the bus and following through with his plan. I am powerless, except to pray. I can`t allow my pain to dictate my life. I can`t allow it to take away the happiness of a moment.
