It’s been awhile, but I received an awkward hug today. I asked the girl that was helping me out at Pier 1 for a hug. I didn’t purchase anything. I don’t know if that is what made her feel awkward or what, but she still agreed to the hug. I smiled warmly at her as I pulled away from the hug hoping to get across that my only intention was kindness. I am not sure if she got it at the moment, but hopefully she will think of me throughout the day and smile. Whether it’s from the craziness of a stranger or from the joy of a hug makes no matter to me as long as she feels joy. I am willing to sacrifice others perception of my sanity for the sake of a smile.
I have been sitting on a gift certificate for TJ Maxx for about 5 months now. Can you believe it? Money to be spent and it has been sitting in my drawer for all this time. I am so glad. I am not sure that 5 months ago I would have found these perfect items for my house:
It is a wonderful world indeed. Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
