I am declaring today National Hug a Relative Day. I wish I actually had the power to proclaim holidays.
My brother passed away about two and a half years ago. Today is his birthday. He would have been 31.
I miss him every single day. I often wish I had hugged him more, he loved hugs, huge bear hugs. I wish I had hugged him more and told him more often that I loved him.
So today, hug a relative, tell them you love them. If there is someone in your life you haven’t had a great deal of contact with, send them a text or give them a call and tell them that you are thinking about them today and that you love them.
It is important to let them know how you feel. You never know how much more time you have with them.
