Thought for today - Dec. 27 - A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and the one which we take the least thought to acquire..LR
Start the New Year out by giving someone you know a big hug. It’s wondrous what a hug can do. A hug can cheer you when you’re blue. A hug can say “I love you so”, 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 rain. The 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 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 day seem merrier. No need to fret about how to store ‘em. The more you give, the more there are of ‘em!
So stretch those arms without delay and give someone a hug a day. Unknown
