Hear your Warm and Fuzzy here!
It’s wonderful what a hug can do,
A hug can cheer you when you’re blue
A hug can say, I love you
so’or’ Gee I hate to see you go
A hug is ‘Welcome back again’
and Great to see you or
Where have you been?
A hug can smoothe a small child’s pain
and bring a rainbow after rain
There’s just no doubt about it,
We scarcely can survive without it.
A hug delights and warms and charms,
It must be why God gave us arms!
By Robert Perdue
Today’s Warm and Fuzzy is dedicated to my dear friend Karen and her mother in law, Prudia-and all of the Purdue’s who have been so very kind enough to take me into their families.
Bob, as I knew him, or “Jack” on some occasions,(that’s a story for another day!) was like a father to me at times but more like a Grandfather-I haven’t had either for a very long time. Today is our anniversary of Bob going home
and we continue to miss him. Just because we know our loved ones are in a better place doesn’t take away the missing or loneliness factors. It’s still early in the grief stages even though it’s been two years. The wound is still fresh, the ache is still strong, the desire to hear his giggle and listen to his stories is still very big. I miss him.
He left us his amazing legacy and the wonderful gift of his poetry and I wanted to share one of my favorites today. Bob was an awesome hugger and so this poem that he wrote called, “The Hug” will always make me grin and think of him.
I hope the mere aspect of sharing a hug will have some appeal to you today too, and now that you know the history, I hope you go home and hug your loved ones today. You just never know when you will wake up one morning and they wont be there any more.
Thank you for reading. Hugs to you!
