TGIF - Tears


There's a quote by John Vance Cheney that says "The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears". Often it's only in retrospect we see the truth of that. This wee crying girl is a Flickr free image. This reminds me of a time when my grandson was small. He persisted to cry and whine about some supposed injustice. At last my daughter said. "If you keep whining you have to go to timeout." As he marched his small, indignant body to his timeout spot, he cast a woeful eye at his mother and said "But, I NEED to whine!" And so it is with all of us....sometimes we just NEED to whine! Thanks for looking.
