A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.Ralph Waldo Emerson
Before him, I may think aloud.
An Internet friend asked, “why do you sign your posts, “hugs, e”
Well the following poem describes part of the reason:
It’s wondrous what a hug can do.
A hug can cheer you when you’re blue.
A hug can say, “I love You so”
Or, “I hate to see you go.”
A hug is “Welcome back again,”
And “Great to see you! Where’ve you been?”
A hug can soothe a small child’s pain,
And bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug, there’s just no doubt about it. . .
We scarcely could survive without it!
A hug delights and warms and charms,
It must be why God Gave us arms.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers;
And chances are your favorite aunts
Love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them, puppies love them;
Heads of states are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier,
And make travel so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of ’em;
The more you give, the more there’s of em.
So stretch those arms without delay
And give someone a hug today!
Wisdom has two parts:
1. Having a lot to say, and
2. not saying it.
Ideas are funny little things.
They won’t work unless you do.
Here’s my new motto!
The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.G. K.Chesterton
