Power of Hugs

Today, I attended a recollection in celebration of the Lent season. The priest had a very simple teaching: to hug your love ones. As we feed our bodies by eating meals three times a day, we also need to feed our emotional needs and hugging is the best way to fill the void in our hearts. It is with hug that our heart is closest to the heart of our love ones, so close that no evil can get in. Then I realized, yes of course, now I know the reason why hugs will always be my favorite form of affection. I never really thought about why I really like hugs. I just feel safe and loved every time I hug or I'm hugged by somebody but my experience with the recollection has made it clear why hugs have become my favorite. Hugs bring happiness to one's heart and when there is happiness, there is nothing more you could ask for.

Now I share this to everyone; when you go home, hug your love ones. Hug your parents, your wife or husband, your children, your siblings, your grandparents, your cousins, your grandchildren, and your dog. Hug the people you know you love and who loves you. Hug them as often as you can.
