Hugging Is Good Medicine.....

Hugging is good medicine - It transfers energy and gives the person hugged
an emotional lift. You need four hugs a day for survival,
eight for maintenance, and twelve for growth.
Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication, because
it can say things you don't have the words for.
Sometimes, its just the simple act of standing side by side, arms embraced -
or sitting side by side at the end of the wharf, on a warm summer afternoon.
 The nicest thing about a hug, is that 
you usually cannot give one
- without getting one :)

Ohhhh..I LOVE the pictures. I can't wait to show them to PH. He is sleeping soundly..and I still have not been to bed. I hate it when I am up all night! :)
Yes..well...Lilly..I wish I was there too! Howard, bless his heart, just took the time to look up all the directions online and print them out for me. It's a thick..thing of a lot to read..and he said it's just a small part.
Shoot! At this rate I will never get my pictures on my blog! I have not even picked up the papers to read them yet. I dread it! Makes me feel like an idiot. Howard is like you..he LOVES to read directions and figure things out...so.. :) he just might have to continue to work on my camera and he would except that I need to DO it to understand it.
Another thing is that I get antsy sitting and listening to him..read the directions to me and then to try and show me. As soon as he is finished...and hands it to me..I am lost once again. Time. I NEED TIME! Besides..my foot hurts like heck and it's hard to concentrate.
(whine, whine!) LOL Take care Lilly. Yeah..I wish I were there too. But then I would want you to get them on my blog..etc. etc. heh heh!

OH, yes, dear Saucy, you are SO right! I know something about that. My mom had Alzheimers and when she reached the stage where she didn't recognize anyone and couldn't talk or express feelings, hugs where the only thing that she felt. My daughter was small and she'd spend practically the Whole day with her grandma and hug her. They looked so sweet. She didn't know me anymore but everytime I would go to her room she would smile at me and when I hugged her I could feel her happiness. She lasted 13 years with the disease, we were in India, and the doctor told me the reason she lasted so long was because whe was at home surrounded by our love and hugs. You brought back both sad and happy memories Saucy. A big hug. Have a nice weekend.

It's not just hugs but touch as well that sends vibes. It's rather tragic that teachers are unable to hug or touch students. On many days a kid really needs a pat on the back.

Do cyber hugs count? Wow, four hugs for survival! I'd better pick up my pace. I love hugs! They're warm and fuzzy and make the huggee/hugger feel very special. Have a happy, huggy Saturday!

How are you Saucy? Been a while. Hugging releases good hormones which are good for the body. We should keep on hugging, after all it's free! :)

Countryside Tales said...

Couldn't agree more :-) We LOVE hugs here and do them all the time. I'm sending you a hug all the way to Canada from the UK right now... :-)

Here you are! Somehow I got onto something I didn't recognize. I tried to post the following (on Hugging) but couldn't figure out how:

Took me 20 minutes to figure out how to find you again! Boy, do I agree with you. I can't go through the day without at least 2. If that doesn't happen by 2pm I go to Walmart and hug complete strangers, if necessary. I got one from a friend early on and then 3 at Walmart so, it works. I usually pick up 12-15 at church every Sunday. They feed me!

Took me another 15 - 20 minutes to find your real blog and......FINALLY!
