Today, as I was walking into one of the departments I work with, I caught a glimpse of a male in our signature blue-green scrubs. I paused, backed pedal just a couple steps & stared. It was like that moment when you come to an unknown intersection and you need to make a quick decision. What do I say? What do I do?
The feelings that transpired in that one hug, that only lasted a mintue but seemed like 10, can not easily be put into words.
It felt like I was holding onto a young boy who lost his one and only true love. Which is exactly what happened, for this couple WERE that high school couple who married after school AND stayed together. You could feel the love, you could SEE the love between them.
But most importantly, I felt like I left a little bit of my hope and strength with him (& I wish I could have left more)
