As I was driving home, I turned a corner and saw a couple, sharing a romantic kiss as they waited at a stop light. Even though they were in an old, beat up car, it appeared as if their entire world dissolved away from around them and that they were the only two that existed on the earth at that very moment.
As I continued on in my direction I quickly glanced at this couple stretched over the center console and with a flutter in my heart and I said to myself, “This is the kind of kiss that shows love can make anything possible.”
At that moment, I saw flashes of this couple working together to improve their financial situation, to become better people, and create happy lives full of positive meaning. Without even trying, the power of their love created ripples into the fabric of future possibilities.
Having found myself blessed to have witnessed this exact moment, I then saw how, with a solitary kiss, my own life and relationship with Mr J transformed over the last nine years. Ups and downs, changes and evolution, new faces and strange places were all survived and conquered by a special love, embodied by this couple’s kiss. A love so unique, so empowering and so precious that it exists nowhere else on earth. Their kiss embodied a love that inspires greatness from the most humble beginnings.
We all look for this kind of love in books, movies, and in pop-culture – but I found through a couple sharing a romantic kiss in a beat up car while waiting at a stoplight in Oceanside, California.
