Magical Moment Mondays: A Hug

A hug—what’s not to love about the magic of holding another? There is either very little to say about hugs or magnitudes of things to say about hugs. There are so many words for hugs: embrace, cuddle, squeeze, clasp, hold close, and perhaps the best—a bear hug! The simple act of a hug conveys so much. For me the warmth of an embrace trumps almost any other gesture of love. Not that I don’t love a kiss or hand holding, but there is something so magical about the exchange of energy with a hug. And hugging has no bounds—hug your mom or dad, your child, your friend, your brother or sister, your dog, cat, horse or other animal and of course your love. You can even hug yourself. So go forth and hug everyone!

Hug O’War
by Shel Silverstein

I will not play at tug o’ war.
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

XOXO Rachel
