Respect Challenge: Week 12

Quick Recap - I am on a 25 week journey to becoming a more respectful wife.  I want to be the best wife my husband could ever ask for!  I found my inspiration over at Loving Life at HomePlease feel free to join me on this might even change your marriage...  ;)

Kiss Him Goodbye.

Jennifer notes, "I once read about a study done in Germany which found that men whose wives kissed them goodbye every morning were more successful than those who weren’t kissed. Success and respect often go hand-in-hand, so be sure to send him off right, and don’t forget to greet him with a kiss when he returns home, for good measure."

2 Corinthians 13:12 - Greet one another with a holy kiss.    ;)

I absolutely LOVE this weeks challenge!  And I will admit, it was an easy one.  From Day 1 of our marriage we have made it an effort to always kiss each other goodbye and to say 'I love you' before departing.  Not to be grim, but you never know what could happen until you see one another again.  I would rather leave with a kiss than harsh words over a mindless argument.  As far as greeting one another with a kiss, that has just become a recent habit, and one I have hopefully sealed thanks to this challenge!  You see, when we were first married, Hubby worked outside in the dirt and 102(+) degree weather we dealt with in Oklahoma.  He would come home covered in mud, chiggers, and sweat.  While I didn't mind giving him a quick kiss, he wanted to be showered and clean before he would let me touch him, even just a quick peck on the cheek was forbidden.  lol.  Now that he is in management, and it doesn't get quite as hot here in PA, he allows me to greet him as soon as he gets home.  I like that.  :)

Now go give that man of yours a great big old *smooch!*

This is a throwback for sure...almost a year before our engagement. <3 font="">
