In order to find peace, sometimes we need to brave the chaos. This week is all about the chaos. And tears.
All total today we had roughly 4 hours of crying.
I know, you wish you were in my shoes, don’t you? 😉
Not everyone knows there’s different types of crying, but there are. Sometimes crying is about being sad, or angry, even happy. Sometimes it’s a release during a temper tantrum. But sometimes tears are a release that allows the body to heal. Sometimes a person, no matter how small, just needs a good cry.
Today Ella had a good cry.
She needed it and deserved it. I was with her, guiding and comforting her the entire time.
It was exhausting, but these were the tears of futility. The tears that come at the end of a long fight, when resolution’s finally found. These were healing tears. Healing, but utterly exhausting just the same.
Shortly after she finished, Brom started.
I’d love a nice glass of wine. Instead, I’m drinking kombucha* from a wine glass.
*despite not being wine, it is really good.
