“A hug is worth a thousand words.”
I love hugs. At college, I don’t get hugs as often as I would like to but there is one person I can go to and I know she will always welcome me with a hug. Today she gave me a hug at exactly the time I needed it; it was a nice long, meaningful one too. That’s the best kind. Hugs are beautiful. They are comforting, welcoming, loving, and most importantly, they are a gift from God. They are one of those little things we often thank God for. Hugs are something we often take for granted too. When I first came to school, it was weird not getting to hug the people I used to hug every day, like my mom, sister, or best friends. But now every time I get a hug I am grateful for it and it’s more special. Take a break today and hug someone who means a lot to you. If they are far away, send them a virtual hug with this. They will appreciate the kind gesture.
