O.K. that's enough!
Many years ago my daughter came bounding home from school with some
very important news.
She could hardly get in the door and up the stairs before
telling me the wonderful thing she learned
in school that day.
She had read a story in the newspaper,
yes they read the newspaper everyday in class,
she was about eight at the time,
but I digress...
she had read an article in the paper about a scientific
study and the amazing results that
a person was to give and receive the equivalent
of twelve hugs a day
they would live longer and happier lives!
From that day on
every nite before bed
after saying her prayers
and reading a story
she would give us
12 hugs...counting each
May your day be filled with love and hugs both giving and receiving.
We all need that wonderful
light in our lives.
p.s. 12 just happens to be my favourite
