night time kisses

Do not kiss your children so they will kiss you back but so they will kiss their children, and their children’s children.
- Noah benShea, Poet, philosopher and author of Jacob the Baker, Jacob’s Journey and Remember This My Children.

The way earthly parents treat each other and their children teaches their children how to view God, their heavenly Father. Older siblings (and I mean much older) have the same opportunity as their parents: do those who trust you see an unconditional, "I love you whether or not you deserve it, whether or not you want me to" kind of love? Do we kiss each other good night, even after a day that seems to have been filled with nothing but bickering? Or do we silently drift off, hoping that tomorrow will be better?
