Today is Hugging Day!

See also

I just discovered that today is "Hugging Day." I also remembered that in my book, The Last Adventure of Life, I have a quote on hugging that's memorable. So here it is:

REMEMBER THE POWER OF TOUCH THROUGH HUGGING!
One of our hospice patients gave me the following piece on one of our last visits. She gifted me with it after she had shared that what she missed the most at this time in her life was being touched. It was an important reminder to me not to take the gift of touch for granted, and also never to miss an opportunity to share the gift of touch with the ones we love and the ones who may be missing that gift.

Hugging

Hugging is healthy. It helps the body’s immune system; it keeps you healthier, it cures depression, it reduces stress, it induces sleep, it’s invigorating, it’s rejuvenating, it has no unpleasant side effects, and 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 one hundred percent wholesome.

Hugging is practically perfect. There are no movable parts, no batteries to wear out, no periodic checkups, low energy consumption, high energy yield, inflation-proof, nonfattening, no monthly payments, no insurance requirements, theft-proof, non-taxable, non-polluting and, of course, fully returnable. by Sharon Lindsey

from The Last Adventure of Life, pp. 39-40, by Maria Dancing Heart

To our Health, Wealth, and Happy Hugging!!! Enjoy the Love in your life! Dancing heart~~~~
