My sister forwarded this video to me from another blog called 37 Days. I wanted to share it with all of you. As quoted on 37 Days, "We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth..." (~Virginia Satir)
I myself get plenty of hugs from my husband and three older kids. Not to mention that I'm definitely in the "for growth" category from the million hugs I give to and get from Anna a day. But I will never forget those sub-survival hugless five and a half years pre-Rick, Adri and Anna. At times I'd have to wait a whole week for some good old fashioned running- jumping- wrap- around hugs from Tanner and Noah. I will never take the superabundant hugs I am now blessed with for granted.
For those of you running shy of survival levels, here's at least one in the cyber form. The rest I'll hit ya with when next we meet :)
