Farewell Kisses

Anytime Alexander or Sophia say good-bye to me, even for something as little as a walk around the neighborhood or a quick run to the store, they give me hugs and kisses. One time a visitor was here and said, "Geez, she isn't going to war." I like that they treat every separation as if we may never see each other again and that they want to make that connection to me each and every time we separate. It is nice to have a grand farewell and know that you are missed even if it is for only a few minutes. And when I come home, it is awesome to be greeted at the door by two smiling faces!
