Can i hug you Doctor?

A knocked on my door.

A lady came in
And sat in front of me
Tears started to fall
She looked worried
Before I could say anything
“Can I hug you Dr?”

I held her hands tight.

“My husband is in the ICU,
I just need a hug…
My children are waiting in the car
I don’t want them to see me like this”

After a while….
“I now feel better. Thank you Dr”
And she left….with a smile on her face.

I was touched. She taught me something that day….action speaks louder than words.
