A few weeks ago, I got to see some dear friends whom I haven’t seen since, well, a long time. I’m always amazed by the friendships in life that seem so natural. Sometimes life brings friends and relationships where you just don’t have to try hard. It’s fluid, natural, and easy. It seems as if you could spend ten years apart and when you see each other again, there’s not even a skip in the conversation. That’s how these two are. It was incredibly refreshing to be completely myself around them. They are the type of people who leave a lasting impression wherever they go. This time when they departed, I was left with the rare and exciting hope of marriage and love. I was so encouraged to see a couple in my life, married over five years, who still enjoy one another like best friends. Purely. Faults and all. I hope to have that one day. I had a blast with Lem and Jess.
