A Hug

Sometimes it is just what is needed. My friend Brenda had just learned she has an illness and she happened to be alone in church today. As we sang the third or fourth song, I saw her, standing alone.

I walked over and hugged her. She wept. We held each other as we sang. She needed it. Me too. Simple stuff.

Perhaps there is someone you know who needs one. Give it to them. Or, maybe you need one. Please don't be ashamed to ask. I have never heard someone say, "No I won't give you a hug."
