Everybody needs a hug.  It changes your metabolism. 

Leo Buscaglia

May 3rd - Hugs are a touchy subject

You can't wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.

Nothing gives you comfort quite like a warm hug. Whether you’re wrapped up in the arms of your partner or greeting a friend hello, hugs have a way of making us feel warm and fuzzy inside. But aside from making us feel protected and loved, this touching gesture can also do wonders for our well being.

Hugs make us feel better, more hugs can lower blood pressure and hugs may even alleviate our fears. Hugs can benefit our hearts and they are a great stress reliever.

There's something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart,
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part….

Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr., A Simple Hug

Hugging can change the world. A hug could be the exact thing that someone needs right now. Hugging boosts the immune system and builds esteem.

Hugs can bring a great sense of connection and belonging into your life. They’re free and within reach. When you give, you also receive. Hugs are a simple way to make a difference and make this world a better place.

A hug delights and warms and charms,
that must be why God gave us arms.

Sending a hug back to you, Ma! Indeed hugs can be so comforting and so welcoming, especially if it is a hug from someone you haven't seen in a long time.
