This story comes from Amber T. When I asked about her favorite hug story, there was no hesitation. Every hug from Uncle Larry.
With a far off gaze she recalled how he gave the best hugs every time. They were so amazing that they were even discussed at his funeral; just how special they made everyone feel. I asked if there was ever one in particular that stood out. Her response? “It was every single one. He just made you feel special like he didn’t want the moment to end. He would just rub your back you know? And, make you feel like there was no where else he would rather be.”
I like to think of people like Uncle Larry as hug whisperers. They can turn the most mundane moment into an act of pure love and giving. With the simple act of a hug they can make all your cares disappear and you know in that moment that everything is right with the world.
Here’s to hoping you all are blessed to have an Uncle Larry in your life.
