This story comes from Sue M.
Sue came from a non hugging family. Before she really even got in to the story tears were already filling her eyes. She became very emotional. She had married into an tight knit Italian family and called her husband “weird” for being touchy feely. “That’s not normal” she exclaimed to him. “YOUR family isn’t normal” he laughed.
No one in her family was huggy. Perhaps it was a nationality thing? Now she reflects about how much more she hugs. And I personally can attest to that. I am grateful that my Dad was able to convert my Mom. I can’t imagine growing up any other way.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
