Yesterday when my 21-month-old grandson came home from daycare, he ran right over to me and gave me a hug.  Now granted, he could only reach my knees but it was definitely a big bear hug!  He does it quite often as a matter of fact.  But there was something special about the hug he gave me yesterday.  It was if he knew I really needed it.  Then it got me to wondering.  

How does this little toddler understand what giving a hug really means?  Then I thought back on all of the times he has seen hugging in his family. Even though he is short on words, he has an abundance of love in his heart and hugging is one way he expresses that emotion.  

When children are small their view of the world and people is shaped by what they see.  We, as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc have such an impact on that view.  Are you happy with the views your children are seeing?  

To hug someone is to show them you care.  Have you had a hug today—ohhhhr better yet—-who have YOU hugged?

    • You are so right Beverly.We all need hugs, I make it a point to hug my kids daily and to tell them I love them over and over...I can't imagine how goo goo I will go over my grandkids.

      We are almost done with our photo album, once it's up you need to upload your grandson's picture so we can all see the how cute he is
