Hugs and Kisses.
There is nothing like a hug when you are hurt or sad.
Nothing even comes close.
A hug from Jake or his sisters can truly turn my whole day around.
It still brings tears to my eyes when I think back to all the times Jake would get scared of something and run to me with his arms straight up in the air, huge tears running down his cheeks from those big brown eyes, saying “momma, momma, momma” the whole way to me.
I often wish I had a magic wand I could wave to get even one of those moments back, but I don’t.
I always thought it was so funny how I could pick him up, give him a hug and a kiss on the cheek and like magic the tears went away and it was back to playtime.  Kind of made me feel like I had the magic touch!

Now that Jake is almost grown and very unlikely as a teenager to ever run to me screaming "momma, momma, momma" with his arms in the air, I can only carry these cherished memories in my heart.
Have you hugged someone today?


  1. I make my son hug me every day--the daughter is less resistant--she is 16, he is 12... but with him, I'm trying to keep him from forgetting he's obliged...

  2. My kids still give me hugs, though my 18 year old not so much. The hugs are still wonderful.

    BTW - thanks for becoming my 200th follower!

  3. Awww. You have super powers. :)

  4. It's still good to get a hug from any of my children although they're adult.


  5. Awww this was very sweet and so true! I really miss when a hug would make everything all better. Blessings, Joanne

  6. Just last night my little boy came out into the lounge with tears running down his face. He'd had an awful nightmare. Cuddles and kisses made it all better.

  7. Hug my kiddos everyday! Sweet post!
