I really love this quote. When I first read it I had a defensive feeling rise up in me, the statement about sadness really put me on edge for some reason. The more I thought about it the more I saw truth in it. For me being vulnerable with someone in my darkest moments is one of the hardest things for me to do. I've always tried to deal with things on my own. So to have someone in my life who I trust enough to not only share my laughter with but to also share my sadness is something that I definitely cherish. Thank you Lord for filling my life with wonder at your creation, adventure in the unknown, with amazing family and deep friendships, I thank you for great joy.
