Mom and I were talking one day about crying...wondering why is it that we have such a hard time allowing ourselves to cry.  

Are we following in the footsteps of her mother who had endured so much, without tears?  

But I pointed out that although she was regarded as strong...she was also regarded as hard.  She had a lot of bitterness...her heart was calloused and hardened.

All of a sudden, Mom blurts out, "It has fabric softener in it!"

HUH?

She explained...."the tears soften the fabric of your heart"

I just had to write that one down!  *giggles*
