There’s something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart,
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part….
~Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr., “A Simple Hug”
I am inspired to write this by a little girl in my son’s class at school.
This little girl is full of love and hugs. Literally. She runs up and hugs everyone – parents, teachers, her friends. Every day she showers hugs upon the people she loves. And it’s such a beautiful thing to see.
I have often smiled watching her and hope that she never loses that openness and sheer enthusiasm and joy.
So my advice today – hug freely, hug openly, and hug with abandon.
It feels good, it eases loneliness, it relieves tension, and you can take it with you wherever you go ♥
Sending a big hug to you all my friends
I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug ten people at a time. ~Drew Barrymore
