grateful heart || laughter


Today my heart is so grateful for laughter.  I love laughing.....but seriously, who doesn't?!?

On Saturday I spent a lot of the day with my friend, Allison.  We've been friends since high school and so have been through a lot of awkward, painful, and and special moments together.  We've seen each other go through so many highs and lows.  We've celebrated, cried, encouraged, and listened.  We've had hundreds of sleepovers, gone on double dates (we dated BFF's in high school), sent millions of texts, taken tons of photos, intentionally dressed alike, gone to our share of HS soccer games, shared plenty of inside jokes, and written so many notes back and forth.  I love this girl.

On Saturday we spent a good portion of the day together.  And most of the time, we were laughing.  Mostly at ourselves and each other.  About life circumstances.  About embarrassing moments.  And it felt.so.good.

When I dropped her off, my soul felt refreshed.  I felt so much freedom.  It made me anxious for the next time we could spend together.  The crazy thing is, lately we've both been feeling the pressures of life.  Life is hard.  Sometimes we have to make grown-up decisions and it's not fun.  It felt so good to be together and not make any grown-up decisions.  To just be ourselves and not wonder if the other would judge us or think any less of us.  And then...laugh.  Lots and lots of laughter.  And for that I am so grateful.
