Home is Where the Hugs Are

photo taken from
This is from my September 19, 2012 Thoughts of the Day. It moved me then; and, it moves me now.

When our children see Mom and Dad hugging, they will usually run to sit on the floor between our legs. It has become a sort of game for my husband and me to move about forcing the children to pick up and follow us. Tonight however our son said something rather profound (though I'm sure he did not know it). When he caught Mommy and Daddy hugging he yelled out "Look sister, home!"

It is my sincerest hope that our children will always view that place between Mom and Dad as home and seek refuge there.

"I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust." - Psalm 91:2


  1. The other day, daddy and I were smoochin. The teenage girls said "Oh boy, you would never know they have been together forever"! LOLOL!

  2. That's so cute. I always said I wanted a marriage like my grandparents; Pappy would always swat Granny's bottom as she walked past and she would always call him an 'old coot'. It was so funny when we were little but now I look back at those times knowing they had a rock solid marriage. You always felt love when you were in their home.
