When words can't be found

Sometimes when life hits someone hard, you can’t think of anything to say that doesn’t sound trite. Deeply traumatic things happen to people that you have not experienced. People are also affected differently by adversity.
In those times, it is really good to have a hug in your pocket. Even if this person can’t yet accept a physical hug, a heartfelt symbol of your caring can be a beacon of light for them, helping them to understand that they are not alone.
The beauty of the little clay hug is that it has the warmth of the person giving it imbued in the clay and just feeling this little hug can brighten many days to come for someone going though a hard time.
We love the warm stories that come from our hugzz. Just the other day, a woman bought seven hugzz because she was going to have a dinner gathering for seven people who had really helped her deal with the death of her husband. To show her deep appreciation, she wanted each one to have a permanent hug from her as a reminder of how much she valued their care and support.
I think we can all remember when a hug at the right time made all the difference to our mood and to how we viewed life at that time.
Never underestimate the power of a hug! Give someone a hug today. The beauty is that when you give a hug, you always get a hug, and that is a beautiful thing!
