Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.

Tonight, my friend shared during our small group time. I have only ever known her on this side of the best part of her story, and yes, I cried. Not because her story is incredibly sad, but because it is incredibly real. I have learned to love and appreciate real. Real is hard, and real hurts, but it is in those raw moments when we realize that we are all fighting our own battles of sorts and we don't have to do it alone. And chances are, if we just give it some time, we will be able to sit back on a couch and share how just about anything can be redeemed and made into something incredibly beautiful.

I absolutely love my friends.
