Hugs help hearts heal

Thanksgiving has just past, and it was a beauty.  I love the fresh smells in the air and the vibrant reds and golds of the trees mixed with the many shades of green.

It’s a time when Canadians love to gather together over good food and good conversation  (Americans just have to wait longer).

In our family you don’t get in the door without a big bear hug and again you don’t leave without another one from everybody.  It’s a great custom, especially if everyone know about the heart-to-heart hug when you both hug to the left side of the other.  That way your hearts are directly aligned.  It may be awkward at first, since most of us are trained not to link hearts, but it feels deeper and more special.

Try it, and remember, when someone is hurting inside, nothing beats a warm and caring hug.

Have a great week,
