Today has been one of those days. I don’t’ even want to name all the things that went wrong today because it is not worth it and they are over with. I do want to say that I love children. At work today this 9 year old hugged me. This is a huge deal because she is so not a hug type of girl. In fact sometimes I feel like she hates me. Well tonight I was almost to the front of the church and she comes running around the corner. She hugs me and says “Don’t think I didn’t see you.” I was in a bit of a shock because like I said earlier, she is not a hug girl. So I was like “Wow nice hug I was kinda surprised so could we try again” and we did. Two hugs from a sassy little girl who reminds me of myself when I was a youngster. Those two hugs meant the world to me. Its funny how I underestimate myself. She likes me, she really really likes me. This I now know for sure. I love children and them seem to like me a lot as well.
