A Hug For Christmas!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 20, 2011, 9:03 AM
Our sense of touch is a very delicate thing.
We use our hands to touch, to feel and to embrace.
Touching a person can enlighten emotions well beyond
what a smile or the glance of an eye could possibly bring.
With a gentle touch we can bring a presence to a loved
one making them forget the existence to a troubled past.
Wiping away a tear from a loved one's eye,
while running a gentle hand through their hair,
along with a warm embrace, will quite often make that
tear not know where it even came from.
A gentle touch can remove even the sharpest pain of
fear or grief with a powerful healing force.

To sleep on a cloud
   Amidst the gathering of a storm
Or to lie on the ocean bed
   Watching a rainbow form

We all look for that special moment but the touch from
a loved one makes that moment real!
With our hands we reach out and touch the world but
with these same hands we touch each others souls, bringing
all of our emotions back home, closer to the world of each
other. It makes one realize that a simple thing as just a hug,
is one of the most powerful forces in the universe.

Merry Christmas,
Mark Andree
