“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.”
The DOR was raised not to cry, it was just the rule for some reason. We horses have taught her otherwise...she is learning to cry. She will quietly and secretly shed tears over the loss of a beloved horse. She will openly get teary when we amaze her. Tears will form in her eyes as she grooms and scritches us.
The DOR has learned that tears are good for her and say things that words can not. We understand the tears and respond appropriately. I hope the one day the DOR will finally know what we do...her tears/human tears are powerful healers and a form of clear communication.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
