how 'bout a hug!


i don’t know ‘bout you but i love hugs. i love giving them and i love getting them. i bet you didnt know theres a national hug day and its on january 21st.

i got thinking about hugs and whats so neat about them. hugs are for lots of things. theyre for being happy, for when you’re sad or scared or sick, cause we like some one or love ‘em, to make some one just feel better, to say im sorry, to make up after a fight, to tell ‘em we care, to give comfort, to make em feel real safe and lots of other reasons. some times a hug isnt for any reason but just cause it feels like the right thing to do and it feels good in our heart.

i think theres different kinds of hugs. i like the bear hug cause its so close and squeezy tight and like for a minute were all one person together and for me thats a for real hug. theres a not for real hug and its one of those social thingys and it doesnt have much feeling and its not squeezy tight and its just for saying hello. theres group hugs and theyre neat for being close with a bunch of people.

whats in a hug that makes if feel so good? mostly i think it feels really good cause in the touch you could feel that some one really cares about you or loves you and they say it more strong in a hug than in just words. its really neat when you get hugged and get the words all at the same time. being wrapped up in some ones arms is a real feel good thing.

some times its real important to not just hug some one but ask if they could want a hug. thats like when i go with my brother to where he works with mental ill people. i always ask if one of them could want a hug and mostly every one says yes. i think thats cause they didnt get much hugs in their life and dont get any now. thats a real feel good hug for me and for them too! its ok to say no if you dont want a hug cause some times you just dont feel like it and some people dont like getting touched.

one of my brothers found this quote for me cause he knew im making this hugging post

“Hugging is healthy: It helps the body’s immune system, it keeps you healthier, it helps cure depression, it reduces stress, it induces sleep, it’s invigorating, it’s rejuvenating, it has no unpleasant side effects, and hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug.” - Unknown –

now if you want to you could leave me a nice big hug and go give some one a just because hug! ..... …..biggy supersized hugs from lenny

  7. Big hug to you Lenny. I have found many people who never get a human touch. They are lonely and depressed. I see them every day in my office. Like you said, I ask them if they would like a hug. They always say yes. Sometimes I can hear them "sigh" like "oh, my, I needed this." Thanks Lenny. Sometimes we take hugs for granted and for some it means life. God bless.

  8. So, here's a fact about me: I'm not a touchy-feely type person. After reading your post, I wonder how hard it would be to change that? Don't get me wrong, I hug my daughter like a gazillion times. But other people? Not-so-much. Strangers? Hmmm...no-way. That's just me though. I wish I could be more like you, Lenny.

    Here's my hug:

    (((((((H U G))))))))

    Enjoy!

    And I'll try to be more huggish with those I know. ;-)

  14. So cute! You would love my friend that makes the Hug shirts, Lenny. Hugging is her trademark and what she's known for. We've been best friends for twenty years and I have yet to know one person she has been afraid to hug. Everyone, known or unknown to her, gets one! :o)

    And I'm so stealing this quote. It's wonderful!!!
