3 HUGS, 2 children, 1 husband
Today was one of those days where my children where WILD! The little one was screaming, the older one was complaining and touching everything in sight. (Especially not appropriate at a Dr’s office.) There was no way I could have taken my eyes off of them for the 2 seconds that it would have taken to hug someone. Utter chaos would probably ensue and a phone call to Department of Child Services may have resulted.
I believe that it is true what they say about like attracting like. Anyone who has read The Secret knows what I am talking about. If you are thinking it or feeling it, then you will attract others thinking and feeling the same. Doesn’t matter what the “it” is. As I am enduring my time at the store, a gentleman passes me and says, “Someday you will be a saint.” and proceeds to lightly punch me in the arm. A gesture that suggests he has been there before. I wake up each morning asking for patience to get through this difficult phase that my children are in. Today, with that simple gesture and kind words I got what I have been asking for. I left the store feeling peaceful and much more tolerant of my children. I may not have hugged anyone today, but I certainly consider myself hugged.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
