I don’t know what it is but lately babies and toddlers have been drawn to me. Oh my gosh it’s amazing! Yesterday I helped out during church because they were running short on volunteers in the day care. My 2 year old was smothering me with hugs (as usual) when another little boy came walking over. I thought he was trying to get by me to get some toys but he followed me when I moved. I looked down at him and noticed him looking up at me expectantly. I said, “Do you want to give me a hug?” He slowly moved toward me and wrapped his little arms around my leg. My heart melted. Then today I went to pick 2 year old up from day care at my gym when this little boy who couldn’t have been more than 1 walked (very wobbly) over to me. I bent down to his level and he gave me a great big hug, well, as big as his chubby little arms could give. He kept hugging me even after 2 year old made his way over to me. My heart broke because he started crying when the day care worker took him away so I could leave. Oh thank goodness hubby and I can’t have any more children because the past 2 days would have done me in.
As I was giving hugs to the waitresses at Andy’s today there was a woman waiting in line to pay. I turned to see her arms stretched open. She said, “Well, I figured since you are giving out hugs.” Ooooo… I have been so hoping someone would eventually do that. I don’t know about her, but that put me in a great mood!
And, if you missed it, I shared this picture on my happy blog. This guy totally photo bombed my girlfriends and I on Saturday night. I made him give me a hug much to the dismay of his girlfriend. Whoops.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
