Hugs, Hugs and more Hugs! Can we ever hug too much? God gave us arms so that we could reach out and hug someone. A Hug says ‘I Love You’, I care about you’, ‘You mean the world to me’, ‘You did a great job!’, ‘I’m proud of you!’, ‘You are special’, ‘I’m here for you’, ‘I’m happy to see you’, ‘I think you are terrific’.
Christmas comes softly, silently, sweetly, wrapping it’s loveliness about the world, and once again the most beautiful Message on earth is repeated… Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Men.
