Granddad grabs his little grandchild and says, “Aw, give your ol’ granddad a little hug.”
Howard Publishing Company has a series of books about hugs: Hugs for Women, sisters, Grandma, friends, Moms, grads, kids, teachers, and the list goes on.
Following the drastic drop in the markets yesterday, some people cuddled up in a fetal position and would have liked a little hug.
Some people are huggers and some are not. Some people love to be hugged and others don’t want to be touched.
Hug—but with caution!
The morning news reported that a man was arrested recently for hugging a policeman. The policeman told the hugger to stay back. He didn’t and was arrested. (The hugger was intoxicated).
Several of us lingered in front of a dark church building after services talking. A member I had known for years came up put her arm around my waist, her head on my shoulder and pulled me close. I didn’t think too much about it (but I liked it) since my wife was standing by me and her husband on the other side of my wife. As the conversation went on, I finally spoke. When I did the lady released her hold on me, jumped back and let out a scream. She said she thought I was her husband.
Hugs are good. Hug with passion and often. But for goodness sake—hug with caution!
