About 35 years ago, the owner of a well known retail stereo chain, told me that one of the most important things in life was to either pat someone on the shoulder, or give a person a hug. He said human contact could help add years to someone’s life.
I thought that was such a strange comment coming from a guy who was known for his aloofness. I nevertheless took that comment seriously. I don’t necessarily go out of my way to hug everyone I see, but I do smile at all that I come in contact with. I particularly smile at strangers I pass on the street, and most of the time, they smile back.
I had a big smile on my face when I noticed that my daughter Whitney posted a story about hugging on Facebook. I couldn’t pass it up. I had to share it with you. I do believe every word written here. Enjoy!
