They’re given in times of great joy.
The birth of a baby. A high school graduation. A wedding.
They’re given in times of great pain.
A scraped knee. A bitter divorce. The loss of a loved one.
A hug is a way of saying so much without actually having to say anything at all.
It says congratulations.
It says I’m so sorry.
It says everything will be alright.
It says I love you.
It says all these things and so much more.
So go on.
Give someone a hug today.
Just be sure to ask them if it’s okay first.
Not everyone likes attack hugs.
