To Hug

“To hug is to say with the hands what the mouth is not able to, because not always there are words to say everything.” ~ Mario Quintana, Brazilian poet

I used to say that the beauty of hugs is that you cannot give one without getting one. A friend brought to my attention that this wasn’t true. He said, “You can give a hug without getting one back.”  I thought about it and concluded that he was right. And then I noticed sadness visiting me and the desire that we all enjoyed hugging and experienced the joy of receiving and giving.
