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, “Gee, I hate to see you go,”
A hug is – welcome back again,”
“Great to see you! Where’ve 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 State” are not above them, 
A hug can break the language barrier, 
And make your travels go much merrier,
No need to fret about your store of them
The more you give, the more there’s more of them
So stretch those arms without delay 
And give someone a HUG – Today!!

I am going through some of my moms things and miss her deeply.
I found this poem about hugs.

Douglas Fir-Did You Know?

Douglas Fir Needle Oil is extracted through steam distillation from the twigs, and needles. The aroma is very citrusy, fresh and crisp. Douglas Fir is a conifer that grows natively throughout North America. This tall, evergreen fir tree is frequently used in the Christmas tree industry. Douglas Fir can be used in candles, sprays, diffusers, and freshener sprays.

This oil helps muscular pains, and aches. Works best when massaged into muscles. It soothes, and relieves pain after exercise or intense muscle use. In general, Douglas Fir oil is non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing.

Douglas Fir has a unique chemical composition that’s particularly rich in beta-pinene, contributing to its ability to promote feelings of clear airways. Douglas Fir can also be used to purify the skin and promote a positive mood, also helping with stress, and reducing anxiety. Blending Douglas Fir with citrus oils will create an uplifting environment while freshening the air.

She Graduated Life With Honors

    This student had more guts and determination than most. She was in her early 20’s; but she had leukemia, which, at the time, was in remission. She always wore a scarf on her head, because she had lost her hair during the chemo treatments. She had a cheerful attitude and was responsible and prepared. She only missed a couple of classes because of her illness. She never expected any special treatment. Some of the students were not even aware of her condition.

    Near the end of the quarter, the leukemia returned. She still turned in all of her assignments and came and took the final exam.

    She passed away about two weeks later. Her attitude and determination to the end will always be an inspiration. As I recall, she earned an “A-“  in the class; but I gave her an “A”. I always wondered, “How many of us, knowing that we were going to die, would bother to take the final exams?” In my book, she certainly passed the final exam of life.

As told by Marlon Andrus in his book 12,000 Students Later.
