I Need a Hug©

(By Wayne L. Misner,

   What is a hug? Some say a hug is a form of physical intimacy, love, affection or friendship. It may be an indication of support, comfort, and consolation. A hug can be a demonstration of affection or emotional warmth, arising out of joy or happiness at meeting someone. Sometimes hugs are a romantic exchange. There's something in a simple hug that always warms my heart. Meant for anyone, there are hugs for friends, lovers, parents, grandparents, and strangers. If you are looking for the perfect drug: Let me introduce you to....the hug! The hug is amazing for it's the perfect way to help someone feel a little better.

   What better method of spreading an international sign language that is always understood.

   With a little practice we all can learn by placing your arms around that special person and giving a little squeeze. I want to give to all I meet, a very special gift of love that must be wrapped in a hug. I’m not worried when I give the gift of a hug, for I know one size does fit all and many people do want to exchange it for another.

   We all know that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line but did you know that a hug could be the shortest distance between two people?

   For those I love, I sometimes have a problem in the moment finding the words to express love. Instead I put the love into hugs instead of words. I must admit I have many places I love to visit for vacationing and dining, but my favorite place to be is inside of one of your hugs where I know it's warm and loving. With that one hug and embrace, you speak a thousand words, without ever saying one.

   I do hope that I have convinced you that hugs are good, are not fattening, and will not kill you. However, I must warn you that hugs can be very contagious. It is very possible that by giving hugs you could start those spreading across the world, just like a deadly infectious disease.

  My drug has become the hug. I question, “To Hug or Not to Hug?” and should it be a big hug or a little hug? But I do know this fact; it is easier for me to put love into a hug than to put it into words.
