The Power of a Hug

I have added another blog to my ever-growing list. I will add more I am sure and because I love blogging as much as I do and don't want to miss as much as one, that list is going to get so long I am going to be able to wrap it around the world soon.

I discovered this video at Pomegranate Dreams and left a message with its owner Tillybud, asking her if she would mind me sharing it here. I am a big believer in the power of a hug and I felt so uplifted after watching it.

Tillybud has a great blog with the most wonderful posts and her writing just flows. If you visit you will spend a very pleasant time there as I did. Thanks Tillybud!



If you find those adverts that YouTube put on under the video a little distracting, you can find the 'x' and get rid of them. I know advertisements are their life-blood but with all due respect they can detract from the video somewhat. At the same time I do thank YouTube for a way out of the advert.

It took him a little while to get going but he put a lot of smiles on people's faces that day and probably made their day. It just shows the power of a hug. The skate boarder made me laugh too. I'll be sure to pop over to Tillybud's place too. Thanks for this Denise. A x

Hugs are wonderful. A tip, If you pause the video on YouTube, then click the X to get rid of the advertisement, then click play, it does not come back. Sometimes if you click the X, it will pop up the ad.

Great video.
We could all use a free hug.
This reminds me of the movie Pay it Forward. Pass on the hugs.
