National Kiss and Make Up Day

August 25th is National Kiss and Make Up Day!




Have you been putting off reconciling with a loved one? There's no better day than today, National Kiss and Make Up Day, to reach out and make the first move. Believe me, I know how frightening and difficult that can be. I was estranged from my sister for many years. I was scared to death to reach out to her and start a dialogue between us, but now we are the closest of friends and enjoy a very special relationship. Not only that, but it took a load off my heart, a burden I'd been carrying around for a long time.

Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled to your brother, and then come back and offer your gift.  ~~Matthew 5:23&24

Today is also National Banana Split day, so you and your loved one can share a nice dessert together after you've kissed and made up. Because God is good that way.



In The Doctor's Secret Son, part of the 2 for 1 Classic reissue of my first two Serendipity novels, Delia comes back to Serendipity to reconcile with her old boyfriend Zach. And she has a surprise in store for him--a son he didn't even know he had! Phoebe's Groom & The Doctor's Secret Son is on the shelf now or available from Harlequin.

Deb, I can't say that I've gone through the experience of being estranged from someone, but I've seen family members go through it. I know its very painful so hopefully if anyone is out there struggling with the decision to reach out to someone they are estranged from, maybe knowing that today is National Kiss and Make Up Day will make the decision easier.
And what a way to celebrate with a banana split.

I love the horse picture!!!!

I'm also so glad you were able to restore your relationship with your sister. What a blessing out siblings are.

I personally haven't had an estrangement, but a close friend is going through it. What a rough thing to deal with and prayers are needed. I'm so happy to hear about you and your sister!

Fun! I haven't had a banana split in years! I don't have anyone I need to kiss and make up with but its an interesting tidbit.
