Today’s Inspirational Quote


“Just remember you can’t put your arms around a memory so hug someone you love today.”

Anybody who knows me will tell you I am a serial hugger, yes hugger, not mugger! Always have been and always will be. I’m so thankful I was made this way as I have no regrets that my parents, who sadly both passed years ago, ever suffered a lack of hugs and kisses from me, whether they wanted them at the time or not! My children are also both very tactile which is nice, so lots of hugs and kisses there too. I wish everybody felt and behaved this way but realise that’s a wish that might be stretching it a bit. The sad thing is I’ve often known people feeling remorse when a loved one passed as they felt they didn’t give them enough of their time, told them they loved them enough, hugged them enough, or just listened to them enough. It’s also been proved in some medical studies that hugs benefit peoples’ health, which is not news to me personally, but hopefully gives the green light to us all giving and receiving hugs, and more hugs, and more hugs……….
