We have always been a 'hugging' family, so this was so fitting for our home.
One day when my youngest son was just a teenager, he came home from school, hugged me, and gave me this paper to read. He asked if I could frame it and hang it up for all to see. Of course I would, and it has been hanging in our house ever since.
Some of you may have already read this but here it is for all to hold close.


Hugging is healthy.
It helps the body's immunity system.
It keeps you healthier, cures depression, reduces stress, induces sleep, is invigorating, rejuvenating and has no unpleasant side effects.
Hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug.
Hugging is all natural. It is organic, naturally sweet, no pesticides, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients and 100 % wholesome.

Hugging is practically perfect.
There are no movable parts, no batteries, no wear out, no periodic check-ups, low energy consumption, high energy yield, inflation-proof, not fattening, no monthly payments, no insurance requirements, theft-proof, non-taxable, non-polluting and , of course,
Fully Returnable.

So here a huge ((((HUG)))) for each and every one of you.
Have a blessed day.

We were not a hugging family either but I tell you what, I wish we had been. A huge hug to you. After my son died all of a sudden hugs were needed badly and the kids and I took it upon ourselves to always hug each other. The son who passed away was the hugger with me. He was a delight and I am just grateful I had him for 42 years. Keep on hugging.
