1 New Hug (Nurse at Friendship Medical Center)
Just so you are all kept in the loop, even though I no longer mention it at the top, I am still hugging all of my regulars, you know… my friends, the wonderful people at Smith’s Nursery, the amazing puppy caregivers over at Brookwood Vet, the waste disposal workers, etc. Of course, you already knew that though didn’t you?
So this past week I hugged a nurse at my Dr’s office. She had just finished taking some blood from me and was packing up her supplies when I asked. It was definitely a lukewarm reception. No big smile, no big hug, just a small indifferent smile with a quick hold and release hug. I could see it in her eyes, she just thought I was crazy.
Recently a friend offered to fix my necklace because the rose was shifted to the side. I explained that was how the necklace was designed. He gave me a look very similar to the nurse’s. Before I even had time to think I blurted out, “It’s off kilter, just like me. And, that’s the way I like it.” I walked away with a huge smile on my face knowing that I meant every word.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
