My husband and I have had that sign over our bed the entire time we have lived together. I see it everyday, and have for the last 7 years. I am usually adamant about always kissing him before we go to bed and telling him I love him, he has a dangerous job and I make it a point, even if I am angry to say those things to him. Wednesday night we went to the circus. We had a blast. We got home and he was getting on my nerves, nothing serious, just stupid little things. I am a little hormonal, because I am 8 months pregnant. We went to bed and I was annoyed, so again being grouchy and hormonal I didn;t kiss him goodnight or say I love you. Wednesday morning he had court. He kissed me before he left, although I didn't wake up enough to talk to him. I got up with DD around 8:30 am, court started at nine. He called at about 9:50 saying he was heading home. It usually takes him about an hour or so. While we were talking he mentioned maybe having to take his car to the shop because it was idling funny. He said he's call our mechanic and call me back. At 10:10 am I get another call. " Well honey...we don't have to worry about taking the car to the shop. I was just t-boned and I think the car is totaled. I am ok, but I need you to meet me at the hospital." I quick got ready and took my DD to the neighbors. I get to the hospital and thankfully my hubby looks ok. He has a few scratches on his face and we found out later a few broken ribs. He explained to me what happened and apparently someone ran a red light and t-boned him. He told me the car looked bad, most of the damage was in the front of the car. He didn't think it could be fixed. Mind you the car is a 1998 Chevy Cavalier and not super fancy or pretty, but it ran great and was good on gas. Anyway, the next day we went to clean his gear and such out out of the car. I was totally unprepared for what I saw, 99% of the damage was to the drivers side door. My husband is a very lucky man. I was so shocked it took my breath, and I immediately thought that I had made the decision, just being a grouch not to kiss and tell the man I love that I loved him. I could have very easily become a widow that day and I would've had to live with that for the rest of my life. We found out later it was a 17 year old girl that hit him, and she had hit another car too. Someone was looking out for my hubby that day and I will not ever, ever again go to bed without ALWAYS Kissing Him Goodnight. Here is a pic of the car, my hubby's gauardian angels were working overtime on Thursday.....

I agree...your DH is a lucky man! And, you too...to have the chance to kiss him goodnight again after what happened...it's so important to let our loved ones know how we feel about them...to express it in words and in actions! Thank you for reminding us how important it is!

I hope your DH is feeling okay and will heal quickly. Good Luck with your pregnancy...you haven't long now! ;-)

I'm so glad he is okay. I recently hung those words above my bed too and caught myself the other night not wanting to kiss goodnight as if to teach some sort of lesson. Thank you for sharing :(

We also have that sign.  We actually spend about 1/2 an hour sitting in bed together every night talking and laughing.  That is kind of "our time" and it is important.  I'm glad your husband was okay and you reminded so many to not take things for granted.

We make a point to kiss in the morning and at night but we also make a point to just grab each other and lay a hot kiss on them at least once a day just to keep it interesting. I am glad he is OK

Thanks for the reminder. In our busy, grouchy, hormonal, hectic, over stimulated lives we  forget about the little things. Glad that he is ok.
