Hump day or is it HUG Day?

Did you know that January 21st was hug day? I read that somewhere and I think somehow I missed it! So in honor of hump day - ah hug day - here are some hugs.




Isabel at Blue Shell

Now when the GS was little we played songs all the time and sang and yes for your information he used to love my singing (don't ask him anymore though). One of the songs was about getting at least four hugs a day - that's the minimum not the maximum... so he is a huger. Not as much, but still gives you a hug every day.

I found it - you'll love it - in fact you'll be dancing and singing it.



Thought for the day:



From Belle

So today we can give someone a hug and be a good friend at the same time.

Hugs and smiles both are so easy to give and the recipient almost always gives a smile in return.

Hi Sandie dear,
Wonderful post, sweetheart!!
I send you VIRTUAL HUGS & SMILES on your way, Sandie.
Thanks for sharing your love and the joyful view of life you've got in your beautiful heart!!
I admire your positive thoughts.
I hope you visit My Journals Blog, in which I have shared some of my lovely poems and some family pics for my Online readers to have an idea about my growing New York family. I miss them a great deal!! I make plans to go for a family reunion by the Spring of 2012, if that is God's will. I'll be staying in my daughter's house with my 3 grandchildren, if it's OK. for them. I also make plans to buy a Country Home there and stay back home. I'll be very busy doing my things, if that is God's will. Wish my luck, please!!
As soon as I start my journey back home, I'll be taking a long writing break, due to the reasons stated above.
God bless you, Sandie, and those you love!! I miss you, darling...
Welcome Aboard at anytime!!
All the best,
Poet Starry Dawn.

I love the little girls. How cute they are. We all need a friend that will back you up.

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...

Oh, that was an adorable post. For some reason, watching the Italian "free hugs" video brought tears to my eyes.

And if hugs could go by e-mail, YOU'D be squished, too! Hug, hug, hug, hug, hug, hug, hug, hug, Susan

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Tim Gunn says he hasn't had a cold in ten or twenty years, and he attributes it to hugging everyone!!! Sorry I can't get the video, I have no sound on my computer today, I am in between computers and getting a new one tomorrow.

Belle said...

I love hugs, and if I saw someone giving away free hugs I would run up and get one!

Grammy Goodwill said...

Sending you a hug.

Ann said...

well I had no idea about hug day and I'd never heard that song either. My son was always a big hugger when he was little. He never really outgrew it either. I still get a hug every time I see him :)

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Hugger wugger to you also Sandi. It is a good day when you get just one hug, but 4 hugs is awesome.

GrammyK said...

(((((Big Hugs))))) to you Sandie!! We're a hugging family too. You should see our line up for goodbyes. It gets confusing sometimes..."Did I hug you yet? Who did I miss?" Ha ha!!

Love the little girls!! I remember standing over our floor heat vents in the winter as a little girl. Instant PUFF!! Too funny!!

Thanks for making me smile. Again! I've so come to depend on you for a smile, you know. <3

Debby@Just Breathe said...
