Thought for the day…..

I believe that everyone on the planet should receive an unexpected wonderful warm HUG every single day of their life.

Can you imagine how much better our world would be?

I have to tell you a little story.

Over the past few days I have been working at my job at the mall.

For a little background.

The multi-talented young megastar Taylor Swift was in town for two sold-out concerts (one Thursday night and one Friday night).

So our store was visited by many of her fans who stopped by with their Grandmas, Mothers, and Fathers for some soaps and stuff.

There was one particular young lady who stood out.  She asked me if we sold shampoo for children.

I told her that we sold shampoo & conditioner although not specially made for children; it was great and that I used it.

So while we were discussing shampoo – I noticed that she was wearing a Taylor Swift t-shirt and asked her about the concert.

She told me about all the set changes and all the different instruments Taylor played and that she was amazing.

We chatted about school and she told me she was going into Grade 5.  We formally introduced ourselves and she told me where she was from …..

Then out of the blue …… she reached over and gave me a big hug around the waist because that is where her arms reached.

How incredibly generous.  Especially these days.

I was so taken aback but so grateful for the hug.

We chatted for a few more seconds before she was on her way.

In a world that is so full of mistrust and malice it was wonderful to find such a warm hearted soul in one so young.

I had a strange but wonderful feeling envelope me.    A feeling that I had come across a very special human being.

It seemed like for the rest of the day everyone in our store (all the staff) were in the hugging mood.

How great is that?

Each hug feels like a million dollars and by the end of the day ….. I had about 40 million of them.

How blessed am I?  Very.

Thought for this day …… pass out HUGS.

They are FREE ….. give your each member of your family a big HUG.

See the smiles on their faces.

Thank you for all of the hugs.

I am eternally grateful for the little girl who brought warmth into my life in a quick minute, and then was gone.

Happy Saturday everyone.

Today,  I am surrounded by puppies.  Elton laying on the hall floor, Penny on one side of me and Alvin on the other.

(they are pooped out because we just came back from a morning walk and it is already beginning to get hot, supposed to be 30 today)

Truly I feel like the luckiest human being on the planet.

To be surrounded by so much love on a daily basis.

Always, Carol
