Hugs, Hugs, & More Hugs: Are you a hugger?

on January 16, 2013

One cannot give nor receive enough hugs! Not too long ago catnip featured Hugs: The Universal Language. Being universal means you can hug in Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Malaysian, Russian, etc., etc., etc.

Regardless of the language, a hug is still a hug. It takes on different forms as variances in the hug project different meanings being dependent, of course, on the mood of the moment. For instance, a warm, passionate hug could be followed by a French kiss. A feeling of excitement could result in a strong, German hug where the feeling of broken ribs might enter into play.

Because of the hug’s universality I am sending you a passel, a bushel and a peck, a plethora of hugs your way! Grab hold to at least one and pass it on. . .

There are those who wish hugs to be banned
What a sad day when one cannot extend a hand

For you see it is that extended part
From which the hug initially starts

Relinquishing all doubt whether needed or loved
All that matters is bound in just one simple hug

Are you a hugger?

Before leaving, you must visit Ute Smile and  Hug – ology. While there, browse around her wonderful site. . .

    I don’t tend to hug people. I am not a tactile person. I will hug my kids and my mother.

      Thanks, Bob. I have been swamped getting ready for my book release. Have you posted any new pics since my last visit. I have pinned a BUNCH to my new Pinterest board. In fact, it is your pictures that sparked the fire for the new board!

  10. I am a hugger. It never fails to make me feel better to receive a hug.

    We have a jet black Oriental cat (male), and a black, with white face and chest, female Cavoodle (King Charles Cavalier/toy Poodle cross). They are the best of friends and hug and groom each another all the time. Even supposed enemies like cats and dogs need hugs 🙂

    • catnipoflife says:

      I can definitely envision that scene! We have two cats and I love to watch them as they ‘take care of each other.” They follow each other like puppies and do not like to be separated 🙂

    Hello dear Sharla! 😉 You are nominated for the Award Gargie. Thank you follow the link 🙂

    They make my heart sing, and smile, thank you! I know just the person who needs this right now and have sent them the link to this post.

    • catnipoflife says:

      That is GREAT! I know what you mean about making your heart sing and they definitely bring on the smiles. It is really difficult for me to understand why some people want to actually ban hugs! Apparently at some point in life, someone received an inappropriate hug or simply took it the wrong way.
