I love getting to the point in a friendship where you don't have that awkward silence thingy going on....
You know what I'm talking about people.
For example, when you're at home, watching a show or reading a book on the couch next to someone and not a word is being shared between the two of you.
And it's totally okay.
In fact, it's perfectly perfect.
I can count on one hand how many people I could do that with in this very moment.
And what is so amazingly amazing about these special friends, is that the road that got me to this "comfortable quiet contentment" between us wasn't at all comfortable.....or quiet.....or content.
Our journeys together were roller coasters of emotion. And therein lies the joy.
The peace, the actual physical peace I share with these precious few are filled with more depth than a million spoken words could afford.
Secure, warm comfort, like a worn out childhood quilt your grandmother made, it wraps around my heart when I'm with them.
And I wonder for a millisecond, if it's a strange notion, this "unawkward silence" I enjoy.
But then it hits me.....this is how it'll feel to be in the presence of the Savior again one day.
No chatty cathy will I be.
I'll just embrace the simple fact that I am near him....feeling his eternal energy and love.....holding on to every ounce of it I can.
Yep. That's how it'll be.
