Plus, two reader comments:
He tells Anya 12 reader comments on complete life: “This post reminded me of a ritual I had for several decades. Every night, I used to kiss someone absent before bed. As a child this was often my father – my parents divorced and I only saw him every other weekend. As a teenager, kissing was always for my current infatuation, embarrassing enough. When my now husband worked abroad for a very long time, the kiss was for him. When my grandmother was in the hospital, a kiss was for her. When we waited for our adopted child for even longer years, a kiss was for them. (My baby is now seven years old and loves to listen to mom’s kisses.) And now I have a wife and my baby right next to me when I fall asleep and I can actually physically kiss them goodnight. I think in past lives I often felt lonely and misunderstood, but still, there was always someone to whom I would send a kiss. And now I am surrounded by love and I am so grateful. “
Emily says a sweet story about a proposal: “My (now) wife was in a deep depression for a year before we decided to get married. After trying many medications, she switched to a new medication on Monday and told me she was starting to see color in the world again. By Friday, with coffee in bed, we decided to get married. No suggestions, no rings, just antidepressants. “
