in the generous life

My husband kissed me in the chicken coop.  I just had to say that because I told my husband I was going to tell all the generous wives about it.  :)  Actually it does speak to something that I think is important in a marriage.

My husband, son and friend are building a chicken coop for 12 cute little baby chicks that the friend’s wife and I are going to tend (I hope they survive us).  Today my husband gave me the tour of their project and, being alone in that 8×8 box, decided that a soon-to-be chicken coop was just the place for a kiss.  Truthfully, he is a hopeless romantic, so just about anywhere is a good place to kiss.  And, isn’t that the thing of it, lots of little bits of physical intimacy build a marriage.  It doesn’t have to be much or fancy, just a kiss, a pat, a hug … often.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.  Leo Buscaglia
