  3. awwww this is soooo sweet!
    Our family are the great huggers.
    Hug a friend, hug a lover, hug a client hug at church, hug a stranger
    but Now I don’t miss hugging at all. Funny thing but maybe good since I haven’t a clue when and if I’ll want to again. I know so many are missing their hugs! 💖
