I read somewhere that today is Free Hug Day. I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to hug all my friends here on DS (like I need an excuse!)
Then I got to thinking that we could make this into a Daily Strength wide thing if we really work at it. Everybody sends a hug to each of their friends on DS, who then send out hugs to all of their friends (including the one who hugged them, of course). It would sort of be like forwards or chain letters, except with hugs. And, frankly, getting a hug is a lot nicer than getting a chain letter or forward, don't you think? You also wouldn't have to write anything when you sent your hug. Just send it.
Some people, if they wanted to, could even go and send hugs to total strangers on DS, just for the sake of giving someone a hug. I mean, the whole point of this day is to give out hugs jut for the sake of giving out hugs, right? Right! So if you're that type, go right ahead!
(Everybody is also more than welcome to copy this message and post it in support groups they belong to. If we want this to be a DailyStrength wide thing, we need to get the word out. Just acknowledge that it came from me, okay?)
