When we see someone cry, and their tears falling, we feel bad for them. Our first instinct is to comfort them. What we don’t realize is often they need to cry and their tears cleanse the soul. When I cry, of course I feel sad, but never did I realize that to cry is part of a healing process. I lost someone so dear to me, my sister. I watched my nieces, her children hurt and cry.
Her youngest daughter Luma is 22, and someone who I have always been close with. There is something about Luma that makes her special. She illuminates a light with whoever she is around. When she feels someone else is hurting, she is the first one to offer a comforting shoulder. Her mother was an angel. I know we often hear this from loved ones but in all reality, she really was. She gave so much to those she loved and touched many lives.
Luma and I have always held a special bond. Luma has class. She doesn’t believe it, but I see it. She also took her mother’s death so hard. For many months, I hardly heard from her. She even wondered if I did not have the best of intentions for her. I always have, and I always will. Although I could not see her as she lived in another state, I felt her anger. If she had been thinking clearly, she would have known I would never have any malice or anything but love for her and would only think of her best interest. It took many months, and a move to Mexico, for her to be able to cry.
I have her visiting now, and we share tears together. She is amazing and such a loving person. For anyone who has this kind of illuminating light, there sometimes is darkness too. When she is hurting and depressed she ia a lot like me. She wants to be alone or escape the pain. She is very strong but part of grieving is sadness and tears.
