Valerio showed up at our house today smelling of grime & alcohol. My normal greeting with a kiss quickly went into hiding. As though he could see it all, Valerio smiled at me, tilted his cheek my way & just waited as if to say, “my kiss please”. And he is right – after all he is God’s beloved child. So I dug that kiss out of hiding & planted it on his cheek which brought a smile to both of our faces.
