Kiss

When I was growing up, my parents weren't much on showing public affection, I can only remember seeing them kiss once, but there was this picture that my mom had in one of her old boxes of pictures, and I used to hide it in my room and take it out from time to time.  To see that kiss, and tell myself they loved each other like they did in this picture.  Maybe it was just a little boys fantasy.  But I saw love in the picture, maybe because I didn't see them do it much while we were growing up that I needed this to tell me that they did sometime.

I think there was a time when parents weren't very open with affection for each other - maybe it was a belief that it should be saved for private.  I had wondered at times if my parents truly loved each other when I was younger.  It was when I was older I truly realized the love they had for each other - even if it wasn't also shown or seen by others.  Lovely picture.

Your PARENTS ARE FANTASTIC LOOKING, they loved each other in many deep ways that reverberated down to you somehow and I can feel your emotion and love in your letters and words, as well as works. Phil K.

It's funny how people way back then didnt like to show affection in front of their children. Love is what makes a family. My father died when I was three years old. I never got to see my mother or my father kiss, not even in a picture. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful memory with moi. Love, Win =.)
