Just feeling sad

It doesn't hurt to feel sad from time to time. 
~ Willie Nelson

Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.
~ Christopher Morley

The word 'happiness' would love its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. 
~ Carl Jung

Tears are the summer showers to the soul. 
~ Alfred Austin

Sadness is also a kind of defense. 
~ Ivo Andric

Delicious tears! The heart's own dew. 
~ Letitia Elizabeth Landon

Tears are nature's lotion for the eyes. The eyes see better for being washed by them. 
~ Christian Nestell Bovee 

Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought. 
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley



  1. I cried this week. I really resonate with the Christian Nestell Bovee quote.

    1. Hope you are ok. (((hugs))) to you.

    2. Doing pretty good today Pearlie. My tears were lotion for my eyes. ツ

    3. Yea, sometimes tears are good. Only sometimes though.

    4. They do seem to serve a purpose Pearlie. Sometimes they are simply a release in response to something great or horrible. I often weep in response to the Holy Spirit's moving in my heart. I think that Jesus cried a lot. The gospel writers saw him cry and reported that he was moved by compassion. So often tears are the appropriate response to the ups and downs of life.
