Heart hugs

Today during therapy we were talking about stuff which was very hard to talk about.
I said to eileen, god, I just want to hug you! I wish I could give you a hug, but I cant due to the stupid covid shit!
She stood up and went to her desk. I was wondering why she did that, I heard her get out a pen, and test it, and I was like why is she doing that?
Then she came over to me.
“Give me your hand” She said.
“give me your left hand”.
So I did. She started drawing on my hand.
“Ok, she said after a few seconds, I have drawn a heart”.
“I’m gonna draw a heart too on my own hand”.
Then she took out some gold shiny stickers, and she put one in the middle of the heart on each of our hands.
“Now, she said, when you place your hand on the sticker in the middle of the heart, think of me putting my arms around you and imagine me hugging you tightly”.
Then, she handed me the pack of gold shiny stickers.
“Here, she said, have these, and every day you can put one on your hand and imagine its a hug from me.
I could have wept!
She is so thoughtful and sweet. I am so, so lucky to have her.
The kids were so delighted, and Taylor said she’s not washing her hands for the whole day, lol.
