The Littlest Kiss

A few days ago my youngest daughter finally learnt how to kiss.  The most gentle, wet and sloppy kiss with an exaggerated ‘mmwaa’ to accompany it.
And seeing the pleasure on her face as I glowed with pride was priceless.
Since then every morning and evening that must be the highlight of my day.  I hold her up and her warm little hands cup my face as she turns my head so she can lean onto my cheek.
Priceless.  This is what makes it worthwhile.

And seeing the pleasure on her face as I glowed with pride was and remains, priceless.
Since then every morning and evening these have been the twin highlights of my day.  I hold her up and her warm little hands cup my face as she turns my head so she can lean onto my cheek.
This is what makes it worthwhile.

  2. This is a beautiful post, sir. And thank you for creating this site. I’ve just spent the majority of the last two days catching up (when I should have been working) and it’s helped me quite a bit. My wife and I have just come out of a particularly rough spot and your insight and honesty have truly been an inspiration. I also have perused the experience project and while it felt good to know I wasn’t alone, I too, found it sad and on the whole not very helpful. Mostly lots of support and venting, which I think is healthy and something we all need to do, but not much problem solving going on. I don’t know what I’ll do as of yet, but I have found some wisdom here that might help me figure this all out. Looking forward to reading future posts.

  4. ManInABox, thank you for all your comments – I’ve been really busy with the day job (which believe it or not does not involve me thinking up things to write about on this site!).

    I’m sorry for your situation. I often feel that I would not wish the condition we live under on my worst enemy. Yet it is comments such as yours that make the effort I have put into the articles and posts all worthwhile.

    After a few weeks in which I was a very frequent visitor to Experience Project, I now visit is quite rarely. I agree with you that there is not much problem solving there: but I don’t think there is any scope for ‘solutions’ as such. The clearest and most logical one would be for us to ‘cut our losses’. Some of the posters on EP have done that. Most have not for various reasons. I have made my choice to stay for reasons I have gone over a few times in other posts. I guess the best ‘solution’ would now be in the formulation of ‘coping mechanisms’.
