The Power of a Hug

I consider myself a hugger, but I am not always surrounded by fellow huggers. I love hugs! Olaf and I are kindred spirits that way. The small kindness of a hug can show affection, comfort a tender heart and rejuvenate a soul. A hug to a fellow mom is a silent message that tells them, “I […]
