Today was a discouraging day at work. I was having some communication issues in that no one could communicate with me. It felt like everyone was speaking gibberish! I was having a lot of trouble wading through the information and extracting what exactly the requestor was looking for. In other words, it felt like everyone was speaking gibberish!
When I arrived home, as usual, my husband and I asked each other "how are you today?" and I advised him I had a bleckity bleck bleck day and needed a hug, which he immediately offered and which even more immediately, made me feel better. I scampered off and began doing my household chores, or whatever it actually is I do when I get home from work.
I have in the past talked with other sisters and received email messages from sisters discussing times in their lives when they were discouraged. I often wonder--how many times have I wanted to hug someone and not done it? How many times was that someone going through a difficult time I was not aware of and a hug could have helped even if only for a minute?
I hereby suggest we all give a hug when we feel prompted. Who doesn't want to feel loved? So they may think you're a wierdo, so what? What if they in turn think you're fabulous? Who doesn't want to be fabulous?
Challenge issued--who will accept?
