I am infinitely grateful for that small but mighty act of love called HUG. What a rush of comfort, strength, and belonging floods through us when we are wrapped in the embrace of someone we love. I honestly can't say which is more wonderful, getting a hug or giving a hug! In moments when words just can't be found, what a blessing that our body language can come to the rescue with a hug. ♥
Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you.
~ Jacques Prévert
Everybody needs a hug. It changes your metabolism.
~ Leo Buscaglia
I will not play tug o' war.
I'd rather play hug o' war.
Where everyone hugs instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.
~ Shel Silverstein
If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.
~ George MacDonald
