Sometimes, all we need is a collective group hug
A few days ago, my friend told me a story that was too good not to share.
On Christmas Day, her family, all adults and her four-year-old grandson, were milling around in the kitchen. All at once, her grandson announced, “Hey! I’ve got an idea! Let’s have a group hug.”
Everyone agreed that was a good idea and so they had a group hug. Later, I chuckled and thought what a great suggestion to have a group hug for so many people in the world:
• NHL players and owners;
• Natives and Prime Minister Stephen Harper;
• Democrats and Republicans;
I could go on and on.
A four-year-old child had it right!
Group hugs to all and a Happy New Year!
