I'm grateful for the comfort of touch in all its loving ways. I'm grateful for hugs from friends and family. When I am having a rough day or having a moment of sadness a hug is a great reminder that I am always supported and loved. Yet even when I am having the best day and everything is well, hugs are still appreciated. I'm grateful for the all the hugs I received yesterday and today. I'm grateful to have such great huggers as family and friends. I'm grateful for holding hands and even a pat on the back or a handshake. These comforting touches are all ways that we extend a piece of our heart and ourselves to people around us. It is sometimes taken for granted when these little exchanges happen so frequently but the comfort of touch is such an important part of our sense of belonging and community. I'm grateful for everyone I meet that extends their hand to me. I'm grateful for all the huggers that embrace me. I'm grateful for all the many ways to receive comfort through touch. How do you comfort others? When was the last time you hugged the ones you love? There is so much power in loving, comforting touch. How will you choose to express it? I hope your day is blessed with many hugs!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
