Being remembered by someone is a really beautiful, lovely compliment.
Out of all the people they encounter in their lives they think of you and then to act on that and let you know? If that doesn’t make your heart swell, it should.
This is the silver lining of awkwardness. It’s an invitation to admit you’re nothing more and nothing less than a human being in need of grace. It’s an invitation to be vulnerable, which strangely enough is the only way to begin to be rid of shame. It’s an invitation to stop pretending you have it all together, and joyfully admit that your hope isn’t in your smoothness but rather in the Lord who, judging by his time on earth, loves people who know they’re awkward and thus keenly feel their need for Him.
Awkwardness is an invitation to vulnerability. And vulnerability is where friendship is born.
