July 15 thru July 21 is Hug Week.
I didn't grow up in a huggy family. Some of my friends did and they hugged everyone, friends, family and strangers. My sister used to be a huggy person, but I like my personal space.
As I've grown older, I've become more comfortable with hugs, but I still don't embrace everyone I meet.
My dogs with their hot Portuguese blood are big huggers.
They think any occasion is a good time for a hug.
Group hugs are fine with them.
Some hugs provide security.
Some hugs provide reassurance.
Some hugs are just to say hello.
Some hugs are just because...
Some hugs come as a surprise.
Some hugs are just spur of the moment.
Some hugs say "I love you and I hope you feel better soon."
Have you hugged someone today?
