The Power of a (Hug)


The Power of a (Hug)

One of my daughters gave this little story to me around 17 years ago and I have had it on my office filing cabinets on display ever since.. The story has had a powerful hold on me over these years…


I read the story nearly on a daily basis as a reminder, of love that is needed by my family. Something that we all should take to heart. So I wanted to share it with you.

Hoping that you find it has significance to you too. 



The Power of a (Hug)

The picture above is from an article called “The Rescue Hug”.

The article details the first week of a set of twins. Apparently, each were in their respective incubators, and one was not expected to live.

A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator.

When they were placed together, the healthier of the twins reached out an arm over the sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and her temperature rose to normal.

Let us not forget to embrace those whom we love.  




“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” 
~Helen Keller  1880-1968, Blind/Deaf Author and Lecturer
