Today I received this response from an article I wrote called The Value of a Good Hug.
Ashamed to say, divorced. Children grown and never see or my grands. Never get hug or touched. Recently, I went to stay at the home of a friend. Her husband is from England. He hugged me and kissed my cheek. You can not imagine how it made me feel. Cared for. Remember. Mattered. I couldn’t tell him as probably he might not understand. He will never know how he made me feel … like a human. You see I forgot what I was missing….love!
Thanks for the hugs.
It’s amazing what a hug can do to make someone feel cared for, remembered, and that they matter. Hugs are powerful, take it from a compulsive hugger! If you missed the story in July you can link to it here.
Let’s send a long distance hug to Candy in the UK.
