The Importance of bringing back HUGS


It is wondrous what a hug can do.

A hug can cheer you when you are blue.

A hug can say, “I love you” or

Gee, I hate to see you go.

A hug is , “Welcome back again”

A hug can soothe a small child’s pain

and bring a rainbow after the rain.

THE HUG. There is no doubt about it,

We scarcely could survive without it.

A hug delights and warms and charms,

It must be one of the reasons God gave us arms.

Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,

Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers. ¬†And…

Chances are some favorite aunts love them more than potted plants!

Kittens crave them, Puppies love them.

Heads of State are not above them.

A hug can break the language barrier,

And make the dullest of days see, Merrier.

No need to fret about the store of ’em,

The more you give, the more there are of ’em.

So stretch those arms without delay

And give someone a hug today.
