Many of the Dismaying Stories from last year dealt with situations where couples did things that stressed the bond of closeness between the two of them. I would like to turn that around this week and look at the positive side. Rather than tearing down emotional bridges, I'm sure we'd all rather spend our time and energy strengthening our relationships.
So tell me a happy story. What was the best thing you ever did to bring you and another person closer together? It could be anyone -- a friend, lover, parent, child ... whomever. And hopefully it's obvious I don't mean "closeness" as in physical proximity; I'm talking about tightening up those heartstrings.
Were you at home or far away? Did this take place long ago or earlier today?
Was it legal?
Come on, what really worked well? Take a moment and give all the other Faithful Readers out there a chance to say "Awwww" and reach for a Kleenex.
I'll post my personal favorite next week, along with a link to the author's blog.
