I took one last look at the clock in the corner of the computer screen. With only five minutes until the office closed, my only hope was to get her the right pair and convince her that I was right. As I stood to offer my help, her son came charging through with a puzzle and, being only three, tripped on his own feet and came crashing down. Within a moment, his parents were there asking how they could make it all better and with nothing more than a kiss, he was busily working on the puzzle once more.

Isn’t it amazing to think that at one point in our lives, all it took to fix any problem was a kiss to the affected area? Now, every time I talk to my friends, visit my friends homes, visit their websites and even when I visit the websites of people I don’t know… all I see are the troubles they are having. Whether their lives are this dramatic or if they are blowing things out of proportion is unknown to me.

Still, I wish that I could find that thing that would kiss their hearts and make everything better. I wish I could let them continue working on their puzzle.

    Hey! ..I am shy when it comes to certain things ..like it would take me a few minutes to feel comftorable around people I don’t know. Some people I know would take right up with them!
    Wouldn’t it be great if it was that easy ..to just kiss or hug the persons heart and make everything better.. I would be doing it all the time!!
