best friends

A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.
Before him, I may think aloud.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

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!

” If you think you are too small to be effective,
you have never been in bed with a mosquito.”   

Betty Reese

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.
