It is Christmas again and there maybe some presents under your tree, but they are objects that cannot replace a hug that some may be wishing that they had as a present this year.
Many people who maybe are alone or longing for the hug from some family member are now thinking back about the times when hugs were freely given to all without a thought about the simple hug and now the simple hug has turned into something that we all long for and are beginning to appreciate what a hug really means to us.
Think about the word “Hug”
H is for heartfelt and showing strong feelings that are sincere.
U is for unasked and you would like to know without asking.
G is for generous and to give something freely.
This little definition of a hug could be true in many ways but otherwise a hug is defined as:
Hug*: to put your arms around somebody and hold them tightly, especially to show that you like or love them. (source: *Oxford-Advanced Learners Dictionary)
So, that little hug that many maybe longing for can be there in our thoughts by shutting our eyes and just imaging that that loved one is there hugging you and the wonderful memories of the previous hugs that we freely gave to everyone without thinking about what we were doing.
A little hug can go along way without saying anything that words can describe. So, one thing can be learned from how things are right now, is that we need to appreciate the small things in life, like a hug.
Give a hug if you can and then your day will be better.
