14 HUGS, 4 children, 8 adults (1 husband, 4 Sunday School Leaders, 1 Reverend, 2 neighborhood friends)
I am only a little over 1/3 of the way through my year and the tides are turning. (Quite fitting title for the day after a hurricane.) Today is the 2nd day in less than a week that I didn’t have to ask someone (who is not family or a good friend) for a hug, they approached me first. It had been over a month since I had been at church. When I entered the young kids Sunday School room, the leader quickly made her way over for a hug. She is not aware (to my knowledge) of my blog. She was just moved to hug me. When I began this journey, I looked forward to the days in which others would ask me for a hug rather than the other way around. I can’t believe that it is already happening only a third of the way in! I certainly hope this is a trend that will keep happening more and more often. Knowing how good that makes me feel just reinforces what I am doing and inspires me to do more.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
