Charlie Bear here with something kind of cool. I, myself, love hugs. The kind where you pick me up, snuggle me close, and whisper in my ear.
Then there are those hugs where I jump up on your chest when you are lying in a chair and I crawl up to your neck, place my two paws on either side of your face and give you a hug. Or this kind, where I just sort of “hug” you by being super close.
A POEM FOR THOSE WHO LIKE HUGS
It’s wondrous what a hug can do . . .
A hug can cheer you when you’re blue.
A hug can say “I love you so”
Or “I hate to see you go.”
A hug is “Welcome back again,”
And “Great to see you! Where’ve you been?”
A hug can soothe a small child’s pain,
And bring a rainbow after the rain.
The hug, there’s just no doubt about it –
We scarcely could survive without it!
A hug delights and warms and charms
It must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers;
And chances are your favorite aunts
Love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them, puppies (me!) love them;
Heads of state are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier,
And make travel so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of ’em;
The more you give, the more there’s of ’em.
Since last week was kind of hard with remembering all those we have lost on Sept. 11 and beyond, I thought you might like to consider doing this a little bit more. Maybe you can find someone to hug today?
Wiggles and Woofs to you,
