A Day I Could Really Get Caught Up In

I’m a hugger.  I apologize in advance if we meet and you’re not because I’ll probably hug you.  I love them.  I read somewhere (or made it up) that children should get 17 hugs a day.  I can’t keep track of 68 hugs a day so I just hug them whenever I see them.

Hugs aren’t terribly photogenic but it’s National Hugging Day so I went through the archives and found these hugs.  Some of them are fuzzy, some half done, some with bad hair, I found all sorts.  Regardless, of the type or subject seeing them makes me almost as happy as getting one.

I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play 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.

    Oh my….LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the pictures. I laughed, I cried and I would buy the t-shirt in long and short sleeves. Hugs to all of you.

    How lucky you are that all four (five) of your guys are great huggers. It is clear from the photos that is has been passed down from two of the best.
    Love to you all.
