The Rescuing Hug

This is a picture from an article called "The Rescuing Hug".  The article details the first week of life of a set of twins.  Apparently, each were in their respective incubators, and one was not expected to live.  A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator.  When they were placed together, the healthier of the two threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace.  The smaller baby's heart rate stabilized and her temperature rose to normal.

They both survived, and are thriving, in fact, the two girls went home to share a crib, and still snuggle.  The twins are happy kindergartners now.  The hospital changed their policy after they saw the effect of putting the two girls together, and now they bed multiples together.

Let us not forget to embrace those whom we love!

 

    HUGGING

 

It's wondrous what a hug can do.
A hug can cheer you when you're blue
A hug can say, "I love you so,"
Or, "I hate to see you go."
A hug is "Welcome back again."
And "Great to see you! Where 'er you been?"
A hug can soothe a small child's pain
And bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug, there's just no doubt about it --
We scarcely could survive without it!
A hug delights and warms and charms;
It must be why God gave us arms
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers;
And chances are your favorite aunts
love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them, puppies love them,
Heads of states are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier
And make your travel so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of 'em;
The more you give, the more there are of 'em.
So stretch those arms without delay
And give someone a hug today!

 

I will not play Tug O' War,out-stretched arm
I'd rather play Hug O' War;
Where everyone hugs, instead of tugs,
And everyone giggles and rolls on the rug. 
Where everyone kisses,
and everyone grins; 
out-stretch arm
everyone cuddles, 
and everyone wins. 
~Shel Silverstein
