You know those hugs you get when you see someone you haven't seen in a long time? Where neither of you wants to let go and both of you most likely sigh really big in the middle of it?
I've had about 20 of those in the last 4 days. (Vacations home rock.)
I believe in the power of hugs to heal. Wrapped in someone's arms, the world melts away for just a minute and the tension in your body is somehow less, like you've been holding your breath and are just now releasing it.
Go give someone a hug. It's a great giving AND receiving action. Everyone wins with a hug.
