Free Hub Hug

Hug Vow....

Hug Vow: This hub hug is being given to you with the most sincere intentions. It comes from the heart. The most beautiful things in life are not seen, but felt from within.

I hope you feel the power of this hug and move forward knowing that someone wants the best that life has to offer for you.

May it help alleviate your sorrows and give you comfort when needed the most. May you feel the joy and excitement that it carries for your wonderful moments of happiness.

Any way you need it this hub hug is yours to keep and treasure. Can you feel the power? I sure hope so!

Hugs are free!

Hugs can be warm, tender or just plain mushy. A hub hug is a special kind of hug. It's a virtual hug sent out to those we care about but can't be there in person.

When we have a friend or family member who needs an embrace send them this hub hug and let them know you are there for them in spirit and thought.

Again let me emphasize "it's FREE" and who doesn't like a good bargain!

At one time or another for one reason or another we all need to know that someone has our back.

Did you know that when a person is at their grouchiest is when they need a hug the most? Go ahead and try it (with caution of course).

You just might be extremely surprised at their reaction (hopefully it was a pleasant one).

There are all types of hugs! A hug from a child is the most precious of all hugs. When their small, delicate hands wrap around your neck you remember that life is good and everything else is insignificant.

Have you hugged someone today?

Mark Twain once said the best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer someone else up. What better way to do that but with a caring hug.

Hopefully we were all blessed at a time in our lives to receive a grandparent hug.

Grandparent hugs are the best. Their hugs are one of a unique sense of pride. It's the tight squeeze when your body goes limp and your arms drop to your side and you wonder if you will lose consciousness, but you survive and go for a second hug!

A pet is considered man's best friend. They give you unconditional love and ask for little in return. Whenever we need a hug our four legged friends are always available with paws wide open.

Hugs can be for anything from welcoming a new friend into your life or for the friend who just got released from prison. You never know when someone you care about will need that hug. Send one just to send one! Hugs are always appreciated and welcomed with open arms! This hub hug is for you...free of charge!!!

Have you hugged yourself today?

  • Yep.
  • Nope.

Sunshine....Leave it to you to cheer up an entire community & send them just what they needed! I think if we live to be 100...we'll never experience someone who doesn't accept a hug and give one right back!! Saw one of those "man on the street," shows and the guy was hugging passers by, complete strangers, men, women, children....it was great. He'd just walk up to them smiling and give them a hug!! People smiled, hugged back, laughed out loud.....Not a one of them was taken aback or firghtened by him. You're absolutely on target. Everybody loves a HUG......sending a HUGE BEAR HUG to you lovely Lady!!!

Love your hub, Sunshine, love your hugs!!! You bought back memories for me of the beautiful hugs my Grandpa used to give me, he would wrap me up in his arms while I sat on his knee and nothing felt warmer or more secure and loving than Grandpa's hugs. If he were still alive he would be around 109 now. Maybe one day I get to expereince his hugs once more!!!

Hugs to you my friend and thank you. My votes and sharing.
