Hug the People You Love

February 15, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

I read somewhere (I’m not sure where now) that when a child hugs you, don’t be the first to let go. Let the child hug you for as long as he or she wants, because you never know how much the child needs it. In my opinion, hugs give a sense of physical security and comfort, because you are close to someone dear and important to you.

I think the concept of not letting go first also applies to adults and their aging parents. Our old folks don’t have much time left in this world, and so there are only so many more hugs that are left before you can no longer do so; you would have to wait to hug them again until the time you’re called home to God, too.

The best things in life are free. Health is one of them, because such enables you to do things with your life. Relationships are that other treasure that no amount of wealth can ever replace. The people we love and the time we have with them are one of God’s many gifts to us because He loves us.

Be with the people you love while there is still time. Hug them while you still have the chance, for someday the hug you give and receive might be your last.

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. – Winnie the Pooh
