I am home from a networking event where I got 3 hugs. One was from a person I just met at the event. She and I hit it off because of my experience being a widow and facilitating a Griefshare group and her experience with grief as well as her jewelry business.
Then there was a hug from a friend I met a couple months ago. It is nice to know that after just a couple of months of knowing each other hugs are appropriate.
However, there is one hug I am especially savoring because it was long. I felt safe, secure and comforted. It has been a long time since I got those feelings from a hug.
Hopefully God will bless me with more hugs that make me feel that way at some point in my life. Even if it is a relationship where we spend the rest of our lives dating.
I am grateful for all three hugs. They were special in their own unique way.
Don’t take the hugs you get daily for granted. When they are gone, it something you miss with an intensity that is so deep and intense, it is impossible for me to accurately describe.
