Hugs……They’re so healing!We hug when we see someone we really like and haven’t seen in a while; we hug when it’s time to say good-bye.

We hug to show we care; we hug to let the other person know we are on their team.

We hug to send a special message to another person that they are not alone.  They have a friend; someone who cares what happens to them.

We hug to comfort.  We hug to love.

We hug because we are human and part of a larger community.

We are here to hug.  Each other.  All the time.

I saw the below message on Facebook and I’m am not sure where it came from but thought it was a great idea to get people to think about hugging.

A hug always makes me feel better!  Give one first and see what happens!


Hugging is good medicine.
It transfers energy and gives the person hugged an emotional lift.
You need four hugs a day for survival,
Eight for maintenance,
And twelve for growth.
Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication because it can say things you don’t have words for.
And the nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one.
