There is this weird sense of peace that comes when you find people in life who get it. People who understand your day, your fears, your off sense of humor, your lack of time for BS. It is comforting to say something that may seem offbeat or odd to someone not in your shoes, and have it not only be accepted, but also acknowledged and understood. Ah, that peace of not needing to have your guard up, your radar on, you tongue in check, it is priceless.
I am thoroughly enjoying that peace today, even while some of my children are banging pots and pans in the other room making a racket, and others are bickering and the music from my husband who is working out echoes through our very chaotic house. I know, right now, that even the noise is peace.
