Just a Kiss…

Remember when you were little and fell down? Usually more startled or scared than hurt, you would run to the nearest grown-up – often Mom, for comfort. And she would kiss it and make it better. The placebo effect of this action was remarkable (and helped Mom diagnose if there were a more serious injury.)

There’s something magical in a gentle touch. A connection, the knowledge that someone cares for you.

It usually doesn’t take much to comfort a startled or anxious child. A soft voice, a familiar routine, a calm reassurance.

Or just a kiss.
