Side by side
There is something about the quiet moments side by side. The comfort and trust. The complete comfort around each other. The lack of need. Need to entertain. Need to carry the conversation. Need to pretend. Need to flatter. Need to keep it going. We are next to each other, sharing the same space, breathing the same air, loving the same children, ignoring the same clock, feeling the same fatigue from the same family vacation. Unity in the silence, rest in the moment, love in the marriage. Side by side to the end of our days, with no expectations, only appreciation. Amen.
