Removing Walls for Love

It was a sunny day and I walked into The Dove’s Nest, a Christian book store in Kerrville, Tx. “Hi Kathleen,” said the clerk. She was a lady that went to my church and was a friend. About that time, she wrapped her arms around me and gave me one of the biggest bear hugs I had ever had.

I froze as she hugged me. This was a kind gesture and I knew the hug was genuine, however, for some reason, I had a hard time receiving it.
