Welcome Wednesday: Sometimes you just need a hug!

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Feb 24, 2021

Hello Everyone!

It's another Wednesday. 

I don't have any thought provoking question this week.  I know last night I really needed a hug and I was fortunate enough to have very supportive friends and family I could chat with.

I know we all have our own challenges right now.  So I thought today I would simply offer a virtual hug to whoever needs it!  If things are going rough, just know that there are people here to help and it will get better!

Have a great week everyone!


Couldn't be better timing today, @Jimmy Seddon

I could use a virtual hug.

Trying to order an entree from an Chinese restaurant without rice, but apparently the restaurant doesn't offer such a choice via their website. Selecting "beef and broccoli" brings up a pop-up with "what rice would you like?"

I could take the free rice, but I have two huge bins of leftover rice in my fridge already... 😜

Sounds like you need to make some Arroz Con Leche or some rice pudding to me!! Then you could even drop it off with a neighbor to bless their day.  :-)

Kinda wishing I was your neighbor right now  lol

@John Funk - you don't want me in the kitchen. If you had me boil water, I'd probably figure out a way to burn down the house

Omg @Jimmy Seddon I love this prompt! 🎉✨👏🏼 With all the zoom burnout and yearning to be out and about in the world (but can't) this is definitely what I needed today

Hugs all round!!  But virtual of course!

The most difficult thing about this whole pandemic (and I'm aware that for some people this will be quite minor) has been not hugging my mum.  I can't wait until I'm allowed to hug all the family again.

Always just a slack message away if anyone does need to talk

Very appropriate in these C R A Z Y  Covid times! I sorely miss the human touch/interactions, doing all this work from home. One day, things will open up again. Until then:

Those are awesome @Kat That said, sometime one gets feeling like taking the COVID chances for the Real Thing.

Thanks @Jimmy Seddon ! I think we all really need these hugs from our near and dear ones, during these tough times created by COVID-19. And I believe, our kids need them more from us when they are also blocked in their rooms for remote learning and not able to meet with their friends frequently these days.

There's nothing on earth like the patter of little feet and screams of "Daddy's home!!" to make one completely forget anything else that happened that day.

Thank you @Jimmy Seddon for the prompt and @Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__ for bringing back some heart-warming memories!

Thank you @Jimmy Seddon !  Some days I want post a message about how much I love all my fellow community members but think, "No, Rachel, people will think you are weird...please log off of Slack immediately."  So, maybe it's appropriate in this thread instead.  :)

I love you all!  Being a member of the Atlassian Community is so important to me.  There's nothing like it and you couldn't duplicate what we have here with a million dollars.
