Ahhh Kiss



A kiss stolen

Unforeseen yet oh so sweet

Take some more, I plead


For The Gooseberry Garden on The Kiss.

For me — from my sweet daughter.

I knelt before you

Implored for your forgiveness

Kissed my pride goodbye


For us. May we receive God’s grace in humility.

      God sent you here today Deb to confirm something — what I have gone through are meaningful. I may not totally understand all of them but I trust that with Him all is beautiful — all I need is to adjust the way I see things. Hugggs and love to you 🙂

  14. Rea, At our house we have a bed-time ritual (and a similar morning leaving-the-house ritual) that goes like this: I say, “Goodnight buddy, love you, best boy in the world, sweet dreams, goodnight.” To which my son replies, “Goodnight mom, love you, best mom in the world, sweet dreams, goodnight.” Sometimes if he has already fallen asleep before I get to say this I say it anyway. He’s 16 now and we still do this and have for as long as I can remember. I never want him to doubt whether I love him. 🙂

    I love the second stanza of your poem! “Kissed my pride goodbye.” That can be so hard to do, but so important. Pride gets us nowhere, at least nowhere we want to be. Peace, Linda

      That is sweet! I love rituals. One of ours is we go to sleep as ‘powerful rangers’ of the family where each of us connect by declaring who we are — I am “God ranger white!” then we all connect our forefingers then say altogether, “By the power of love!” So lovely to sleep with a smile 🙂

      I agree with you, not easy to let go of pride but so is holding on to it as well. whew!

  15. Short and to the point. Beautiful emotions

  16. you are brilliant.

    love your entry, simple and delicate.

    Have a great day.

      That is so true! My kiddos love drawing for me because I always try to see what they are seeing. And so when my youngest said that what she had drawn is a guitar, I strummed — despite that I initially thought it was a pork chop 🙂

  19. Takes a lot of growing up to kneel down! Well said.
