A hug is like a boomerang – you get it back right away. ~ Bil Keane
Hugs are powerful.
They can be the comfort we need at the end of a long, frustrating day.
The impetus to express our grief.
A display of complete happiness.
An expression of thanks.
A hug can communicate, “I have missed you” as easily as “You will be missed.”
They can mean the difference feeling connected and feeling isolated.
Between hope and despair.
Never underestimate the power of a hug or our ability to ground another person long enough for them to catch their breath, to feel connected, to feel loved and appreciated, to see the possibilities they may have missed.
