Hugs! What a wonderful, simple action available to almost all of us. Placing my arms around another person, and holding them affectionately, is probably one of the most universal ways of showing caring.
When I remember genuine hugs I've had through my life, I can recall the feelings of warmth they gave me inside, and the smiles they brought to my face. While some were given for particular achievements or at special occasions, I also remember the sweetest ones - given to me for no particular reason, other than to show me someone cared.
Looking at our relationship, have I underestimated the power of hugs? Would a talk about difficulties go better if it began and ended with a genuine hug?
Often, things I can do to improve our relationship can be as simple as a hug, or two, or three, or more. By letting my partner know I care about them in such a way, I reach a part of them that mere words can't. The wonderful thing about hugs is that they cost nothing, and can be given practically anywhere, and anytime
