Da Count- a Hug

If you read this post you know how I feel about touch. It's been a long week. I've been surrounded by bad attitudes and rude demands and I have been fighting a migraine for days. The combination makes me want to crawl in a hole and stay there until everyone goes away.

Today I just want to count the person who gave me a gentle hug out of the blue. I didn't ask for it or expect it, but I sure did appreciate it. It meant an awful lot.

I was going to say the vid reminded me of a DMB video, but I didn't find myself clapping for DMB's. (((HHUUUGG)))
I want a T-shirt with that on it. Maybe a tie-dyed one.

Hugs are so necessary in life.
I work with people on a regular basis who don't get touched by people except when it's time to help them to go to the bathroom or take their meds and whenever they want a hug, I give generously! Some of my co-workers are uncomfortable with it, but I figure that it's a big part of their lives that they are missing out on most of the time, so I can help a tiny bit to fill that void.

My FIL was a big teddy bear of a man. He hugged everyone freely because his heart was full of love, even for strangers. Even though our culture is not a "touchy-feely" one, people tended to respond to his affection. I am especially thankful for nursing home staff that hug the residents. Everyone needs a hug. Thanks for posting this video. It is "touching", pun intended.

Hopefully you can crawl into a comfy bed in the dark and quiet tonight and sleep the headache away and wake up to a beautiful relaxing weekend. Wish I could give you a real hug...love ya.

Sometimes all it takes to feel better is an unexpected hug.

A big squeeze from me as well!!!

The Zombieslayer said...

This guy would be more successful getting hugs if he had a bear suit on.

But I guess he's getting them now. Heh, I'm typing this as I'm watching it. Hey, this is pretty cool. More people should do this. Hey, why are they banning this guy now? ***** communists!

Hope your migrane goes away.

Touch is special. Whether it be the handshake greeting of a friend, or the more intimate touch of a familiar, we need it.
