She said, “Thank you! I needed that!” … Recently I had coffee with a local Reno facebook friend. We had never met in person and she is also the mom of a special needs child (teenager). I do what I always do when greeting someone … I gave her one of my hugs … Anyone who has received one of my hugs knows they are filled with love, caring, and warmth … I lavishly share my hugs with anyone I can … This one was extra special because many of us moms don’t get these types of hugs from our special needs children. They just simply have sensory issues and warm hardy hugs don’t mix well with that.
Why do I share this? Just simply to encourage YOU to share more hugs. We are human and we like to be touched, especially when it’s filled with love and caring. Go hug somebody today!! May I suggest that it’s a soulful hug, not one of those half leaned into hugs, where you pat the person on the back. Be STILL … Be QUIET … And give a Hug full of caring for the person receiving it. They just may say, “Thank YOU! I needed that!”
