For me, the phrase, “First Kiss” evokes so many beautiful memories. If I’m honest, there are probably some funny thoughts in there as well.
The first kiss I shared with the love of my life, my husband, set the course for the life I live now. He is my center, my best friend, my biggest fan and the father of my children.
But there is another first kiss that has shaped me into the person that I am, into the woman I have become.
The date was July 10th, 2004. After what felt like a lifetime, but was really only 9 months, I became a mother. I knew the moment I saw Delaney that my life was forever changed. But it was the moment that I held her and brushed my lips against her buttery cheek that I knew a different truth: I was fovever changed.
Like electricty from her to me, a charge hit my heart. I knew that I would do anything, be anyone. I would love her, protect her, teach her, hold her, hug and kiss her and do my best to make her smile and laugh. With that one kiss, I had ‘kissed’ my previous life goodbye and welcomed this new chapter of motherhood.
Since that first kiss, I’ve passed out thousands more to her and then more to her little brother. It is a sign of affection and love I can’t do without.
