Bruce & Pat, engaged in 1978 in the corner of his kitchen have ever since kissed lovingly in their many kitchen corners for family to see. A daily ritual, but it is more than that. Growing up as their children, we always KNEW they were in love. True love. That even after the worst of days, that kiss made troubles melt away. That embrace said "Everything's okay now, I'm here." Their hugs for us kids meant more than any words, any allowance, any vacation, etc. I don’t know many people who don’t enjoy some sort of affection, to be loved.
Me the oldest, Melissa, now kiss my husband Tom often in our kitchen corner - for our kids to see that we're in love. We hold hands in public – if not holding onto our kids! We let our kids know, or neighbors know, and others know we’re in that Forever Love. Something becoming rarer these days.
I truly believe that parents should be an honorable example of married love to their children. That an open expression of love between spouses is spiritually and scientifically effective.
It is amazing how with modern life being so busy, we forget why we’re working, why we’re married, why we had kids… a kiss, or even a touch, can often bring it all back… if done with love.
So go on, kiss and hug your spouse today! Kiss her like you mean it! Show some lovin' to those kids of yours, be they baby, teen or adult. Though it may feel awkward at first if not already a tradition, “you’ll get used to it!” Each kiss or hug is memory I’ll always cherish!
