Sometimes there aren’t easy solutions to complex medical problems. Often, a hug can help. It’s amazing how much pain and anxiety you can relieve with a simple hug. Hugs are also like boomerangs – when you give one, you get one. And who couldn’t use a hug?
I wrote this poem for the 30 Day Hug Challenge www.30DayHugChallenge.com. I hope it helps you.
The Language of Hugs by Michelle Nichols
A HUG can say Hello,
A HUG can say Goodbye,
A HUG can say Good luck,
A HUG can say Good try!
A HUG can say I love you,
A HUG can say Hang in there!
A HUG can say I’m sorry,
A HUG can say I care.
A HUG can say so many things,
And some that don’t have words.
Sometimes a hug’s the only way
A heart in need is heard.
