A Kiss Goodnight
I have always believed being in a great relationship is hard work. I have never believed love just happens because as much as I enjoy reading brainless love stories by Nicholas Sparks I know reality is hard work. I have been married for over a decade and in that time three things have always been evident. 1) My husband will never remember to put his socks in the hamper 2) When we look at our children we look at one another and smile 3) I always get a kiss goodnight. I will say there have been nights that the last thing I want to do is kiss my husband. I mean as much as I love him he frustrates me just the same. He isn’t the verbose one and he usually isn’t argumentative but he can be stubborn and sometime he can say things that lack reason according to me.
A Kiss Goodnight
I work at night and often my husband goes to bed well before I even contemplate sleeping. He always stops on his way upstairs and gives me a kiss goodnight. He has gone to bed and come back down after several hours because he forgot to give me a kiss goodnight most often because three little people were hot in pursuit with a poem book in tow. He comes down half asleep and half awake and then he kisses my head and off to bed he goes again. Last night was no exception from the goodnight kiss rule. My husband hurt his back badly and we even had to drive him to the emergency room to have them provide him with some medicine and a crutch. We was attempting to walk upstairs to go to bed when he stopped like normal to kiss me goodnight. He couldn’t reach. He isn’t nimble to begin with. In fact he can’t touch his toes and watching him put on his socks is comical. He tried to squat and move right then left. I asked him if he wanted me to get up. He said, “No, I will always find a way to kiss you goodnight.” I asked, “If he just wanted to kiss my hand because I could raise it.” He said, “I love you to0 much to do just that.”
