HUG Corner: Thought for Week - 2/6

Location : North Houston

Wilbur’s heart brimmed with happiness…”Welcome to the barn cellar. You have chosen a hallowed doorway from which to string your webs. I think it is only fair to tell you that I was devoted to your mother…I shall always treasure her memory. To you, her daughters, I pledge my friendship, forever and ever”.

“I pledge mine”, said Joy.

“I do too”, said Aranea.

“And so do I”, said Nellie…

It was a happy day for Wilbur. And many happier, tranquil days followed.

In this beloved children’s story, Charlotte’s Web, we see one of the secrets of healing from grief—the passing on of one’s love for the departed to others who come after. In this case it’s to Charlotte’s daughters that Wilbur’s love flows; it could be anyone in need.


How well we know the world brims with people who need attention, care and love! If we have been blessed with a good relationship, now distanced by death, it is an honorable and praiseworthy legacy of that relationship to pass our love on. We never stop loving the one who is gone, and we will help our own healing and enhance the lives of others if, in some way, we open our arms to someone in need.

I know I have love to share. I will be on the lookout.
