Hugs…

Stopped to get a quick bagel and to email someone here. Standing in line and listening to an older woman tell the girl behind the counter that she was a breast cancer survivor. No one else was in line and I couldn’t help but listen as she was talking to the girl and telling her how she was waiting the news of some recent discussion with her doctor that she was concerned about. The girl behind the counter continued to listen and as I was being helped by someone else, I watched the girl listening come from behind the counter and approach the woman. She throws her arms around her and gives her the biggest hug, I’m convinced that time stopped. I wanted to cry like a baby. Come on people start hugging!!!! Acts of grace in the oddest of places.
