Hugs are so important. I'm a bodyworker and spiritual counselor and about 80% of my clients ask if they can hug before they leave. It's a gift for everyone.
Oh I know only too well the healing power of a hug. Going through cancer with my hubby, when one of those nurses offers us a hug, it's like a ray of sunshine!! You're a kind soul for offering her hugs :-)
I agree with your Momma--God never gives us more than we can handle.....
and I would like to share a quote that my best friend embroidered for me over 20 years ago on a t-shirt: "Hugs are the perfect gift. One size fits all"!
Hugs are universal and it's always the right time for a hug, in my book!
Bless you for being there.
You never know when someone might have needed that hug. It might be the one thing that keeps them from giving up on life.
been a hugging person myself... and it really comforts....bless you... :P
Hug is an amazing way to bring happiness to anyones life
Wow! This sounds so much like what is going on with someone I work with right now. Even as helpless as I feel that I can't exactly help her with what she's going through, I take the time to just sit there and listen to her cry and pour her heart and worries out to me. Even if I say nothing, I feel just listening has comforted her somehow. I truly pray things will turn up for her during these difficult times :( Thank you for posting your story.
The best thing about hugs is they are silent, you have the human contact you need so badly, the advise can come later. Your story brought tears to my eyes, I want to sit in a desk next to you! Hugs to you......
Yes, I agree with your momma..Plus if God brings youto it, He'll get youthrough it! What a nice thing to give hugs of assurance!!!! :}
I do not know about your co-worker but it did help me. God Bless
