Don’t look now but we’re sneaking a kiss! We should sneak them more often, and so should you.
There is just something so special, so sweet, so tender about a kiss between a husband and a wife. And yet, like so many other things, our kisses get lost in the busyness of life. Blended families have so many moving parts: kids coming and going, schedules complicated by ex-spouses with their own agendas, jobs and doctor appointments, homework and sports… hmmm, I think I just gave you a rundown of my day. I’ll bet it sounds familiar.
Today, however, was different. My man did something special. He was leaving for work as I was returning from the dentist and we missed each other by only about a minute. He turned the car around and came back home just to get a kiss. That small gesture meant the world to me. And it reminded me to stop a moment and consider what other little things we could do to show one another love, kindness, support. Those little things add up and build a stronger, healthier marriage. That’s the kind of marriage that will withstand the trials of blended life.
Quick, right now if you can, go kiss your spouse!
