Good Morning, Love

“When a kid walks into the room (…) does your face light up?  That’s what they’re looking for.” Toni Morrison

Toni Morrison was right. And her admonition translates to all relationships bcause are all looking for validation.

My husband and I saw a shift in our relationship when we changed one little habit. What a difference a greeting makes. Full attention. Eye contact. A smile.

Try it. First thing each day, look at your love and say, “good morning”. Tenderly, happily, sadly – it doesn’t matter how you are feeling…it matters that you connect and assure that person that he/she is the love of your life. For this moment you have chosen him/her as the only person who matters.

And btw, it’s good to ask for the same treatment.  This is a lesson in sharing the love.
