Reverend Johnson

Over 12 years ago my wife and I were married in Las Vegas, NV. In the chapel at Treasure Island. It was very elegant. A few friends and family joined us. We had a great time.

We were in Las Vegas this past summer, and we went to TI for old times sake. What a dump. That place has gone to the dogs. And that is kind of an insult to the dogs even.

During our ceremony, The Reverend Johnson, bless his heart, gave a little homily. A lesson. Some advice. A story, or what ever you call that part of it.

He said, while lecturing on Love, and how to keep it alive and known to each other, that you should “do one kindness for each other, every day, without fail.”  Let that sink in for a minute. That is probably the best advice I have ever heard regarding a relationship between two people.

To this day, we each turn down the bed for the other every evening before bedtime. That simple gesture assures us both that no matter how crappy we might have been, or cold,  or mean, or unavailable, we have done at least one kindness for the other that day.
