The Power of a Hug

My Dear Child,


There are several ways to express our love and affection to each other, and one of them is through a hug. When you hug others, you connect with them and that makes them and you feel better physically. It even helps our body fight disease. The skin of our body is connected to the brain through the vagus nerve. That name sounds a bit funny, right? That connection makes us feel happiness as we embrace each other. Giving and receiving hugs is a therapy, that is, a great way to help to not be sad and to bring joy to other people. Hugging is also a way of saying “thank you.” Hug your family and loved ones with love and respect. “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God” 1 John 4:7


With love, Dad/Mom
