I was with a dear friend the other day and we were discussing this very thing. I started thinking about our son, Jim, who is a Jesuit priest and his counterparts. Who hugs them? Now our son would probably be mortified that I am using him as an example, and I've never had this conversation with him. (actually he'd probably roll his eyes and say "M O M!!")
And so we hug him from afar (he's in LA).
Hugs are God's way of letting us know we are cared for, loved, worthy of love.
Share a hug with someone today….you will also reap the benefits of this human touch.
