Day 4 – Out of the mouths of babes

6 HUGS, 2 children, 3 adults and one birthday girl.

I woke up this morning knowing I would not be leaving my house due to dangerous weather and panicked wondering where the inspiration for my blog post would come from.  Well, I didn’t have to wait long.  While watching my husband and 4 year old cuddle on the couch I took the opportunity to ask my son what makes him happy.  His response? “Hugs and Kisses”  Wow.  Knowing we were witnessing a moment, my husband just looked at me and said, “Well, there’s your blog post”.  Indeed.

Turns out a relaxing day at home was not in the cards for me.  Shortly after this beautiful moment, I received an email that friends were getting together for a birthday celebration.  So, after waiting out the storm, I joined them at a nearby restaurant.  As I arrived, I hugged the birthday girl and another friend.  A 3rd person was with them that I never met before, so I hugged her upon introduction.  From her perspective, it was probably more of an attack.  I was determined to give her a hug and share my love, but looking back now, I am pretty sure I frightened her.  Thank goodness we had a whole dinner of getting to know each other so she could see that deep down, I really am harmless.

On a side note, I want to send my love and prayers to those affected by the severe weather in Raleigh and throughout the South.

Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.

  1. Out of the mouths of babes. Kids are just wonderful for the things they say when you least expect it. I’m not surprised Cooper said that. He is what you and Chris are teaching him. I so melt when he comes running to me and gives me a big hug. I love them with that great big smile on his face. Happy hugging! Love and miss you
