Hugs soften hearts

Recently Joan told me a story that her friend, a real estate agent, had passed on to her. This person worked in the same office with a woman she had trouble getting along with. It made going into work an ordeal instead of a pleasure and she didn’t know how to change the situation. Joan had just given her a hugzz, so she decided to give it to her troublesome workmate. To her amazement, the transformation was almost instantaneous. Whatever friction had existed between them was dissolved by this gesture of caring and the two get along very well now.

Even knowing the power of a hug, I am still bowled over by the simplicity of it. So many times a physical hug is too intimate to give to a certain person, but who can refuse a little clay hug, knowing what it symbolizes, and how can that not melt your animosity or soothe your cares?
