Hugging me Hugging You!


The other day I hugged a total stranger! It was so nice. Before you die of shock let me explain. It was a very frigid cold morning. I was just starting my shift at work and 2 clients came into the building where I work. They are visiting from another province. They were not dressed to protect themselves from the cold winter elements. I heard a groan and a grrr come from one of the men. I looked up from what I was doing and one man said to me " I need a toque.... and a hug" I right away replied " I don't have a toque but I can give you a hug." Well the next thing I knew I was in the arms of a man I had never met before. I could hear the snickers of his mates from down the hallway. I said to him " this will warm you up" . Then the hug was over and I was left with a smile on my face and a giggle in my heart. Later that day as I was cleaning I bumped into my hugging buddy again and he said to me " there's my darling" I just giggled and wished him a wonderful afternoon. There was nothing sexual about this hug that we shared. It was just a fun thing that happened. I think hugs are so important. I don't get hugs too often in my life, since my kids have grown up and left home. I don't know anything about this stranger that I gave a hug too. I don't even know his name. I just know that is was so nice. I hope it made his day as it made mine.

aw. That's so nice. It reminds me of a book I just read to Abby last week about a litle boy who wanted to send a hug to his Grandma in the mail. He hugged the lady at the post office and the hug went on and on and on until the mailman hugged the Grandma. The hug made everyone along the way so happy. I hope your huge did too. :)

Sorry daddy, sometimes hugging oneself just does not do the trick. It's a nice thought though!

I loved the moment, here Wandi..

Hugging a stranger is something unusual here...

But it comes natural to me with children and the old...I have noted old ones are so happy when i do it...

making someone's day by doing things we could..definitely makes our day better too :)

Nice post, Wandi
