A Simple Hug by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr.
There's something in a simple hug
that always warms the heart.
It welcomes us back home
and makes it easier to part.
A hug's a way to share the joy
and sad times we go through.
Or just a way for friends to say
they like you cause you're you.
Hugs are meant for everyone
for whom we really care.
From your Grandma to your neighbor,
or a cuddly teddy bear.
A hug is an amazing thing!
It's just the perfect way
to show the love we're feeling,
but can't find the words to say.
It's funny how a little hug
makes everyone feel good;
in every place and language,
it's always understood.
And hugs don't need new equipment,
special batteries or parts-
Just open your arms
and open up your hearts.
Thanks again for stopping by! As usual I really enjoy our weekend visits and I hope that you are able to find some special love here this morning...I know I have! I know that your time spent with me is valuable and to me it is treasured!
I am doing some volunteer work with John this morning as this is the annual “ Community Warm Clothes”. The church has been literally making a sales room in the basement of warm clothes that will be distributed to the folks in the community who need them! A lot of our the folks who will be here are seniors and there are many single working mothers who can use the help! I really do miss the non-profit work I have always been able to do!
So take care and enjoy your weekend and remember.....
