National Hugging Day

Hello Everyone,
Our weather out here in my neck of the Midwest has been cold and rainy - thus we have lots of ice covered streets - making travel dangerous. Lucky for me I am retired and don't have to head out on a day like this and Sir Knight only has to go a couple of blocks - to reach his work destination.
As you may have gathered from my title for this post today is National Hugging Day. As a Hug Therapist I just love celebrating this holiday, so I just had to share it with you!

A Hug Poem
Its wondrous what a Hug can do.
A hug can cheer you, when your blue.
A hug can say, "I love you"
or, "I hate to see you go."

A hug is "Welcome back again."
and "Great to see you. Where have you been?"
A hug can sooth a small childs pain,
and bring a rainbow after Rain.

A hug,there's just no doubt about it..
We scarcely could survive without it!
A hug delights and warms and charms,
It must be why God gave us arms.

Hugs are great for Fathers and Mothers,
Sweet for sisters, Swell for brothers;
And chances are your 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 travel so much merrier.

No need to fret about your store of "em;
The more you give there's more of 'em
So stretch those arms without delay
And give someone a hug today!!!

Just in case you need a coupon to convince that shy someone you know to give you a hug try this one.

Genghis didn't want to be left out of this holiday celebration either - so to all his friends he sends you these wishes.
