Morning Hugs

January 22, 2017

The busyness of the day stole my attention.

Tasks to do.

Attendance to take.

As I made my way to set out their morning work, I almost missed the quiet question hovering in my midst, waiting for a reply, 

“No morning hugs today?”

 His shoulders shrugged as he looked directly at me, standing with anticipation for my embrace.

In the haste of my rushed and responsible adult morning, I had forgotten a very important routine: our morning hugs.

I quickly set down the papers and wrapped my arms tightly around each precious child as they entered our room– all the while secretly thanking them for reminding me of what is valuable and of high priority.

Love. Relationship. Presence.

Lord, so often I forget that you, too, stand waiting with the quiet question, “No morning hugs today? “

May I not forget to feel your embrace each day. May I leap into your arms without reservation.
