Kiss and Make Up!!!

Today is Kiss and Make up Day.  Couldn't find out who started it or when, but I bet I know the why.  Everyone gets into little spats, disagreements, arguments.  Sometimes they just blow over and are forgotten; sometimes they just blow up out of proportion and turn into major feuds.

Feuds are as famous as Romeo and Juliet, between the Montague and Capulet families that resulted in the tragic death of the young lovers, and the feud between the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s.  Their feud, over the rights of a hog, lasted for many years and resulted in several deaths.

Today is a day to end the fight, be it a short spat, or a long standing feud.  Some might suggest that the kissing and the making up part makes fighting worthwhile and even start a fight just to have the opportunity to kiss and make up.

Spend more of your time and energy appreciating the special qualities of your loved ones rather than dwelling on changing them as people or wishing for a relationship that doesn't or can't exist. Use Kiss-and-Make-Up Day to do just that: reach out to the people you've been bickering with and let them know how much they mean to you. Asking for forgiveness or receiving it is hardly important, but knowing that an argument can't ruin a relationship should you choose to upkeep it, is priceless. 

So today, forget about your differences and disagreements, Kiss and Make up, and let the people you are fighting with know how much they really mean to you.
