Two summers ago, my cousin went through a tough time when she lost her son a day after celebrating his 15th birthday. It was unexpected, sudden and heart-wrenching.
We still feel the void that his absence has created in our lives. We will never see his cheeky smile, hear that infectious laughter, or feel those warm hugs again.
We miss him dearly and cherish the moments we shared with him.
Today is Give Your Kids a Hug Day! Let’s not miss this opportunity to shower love on our kids.
When my cousin’s son left home that day, he didn’t know he wouldn’t be coming back. No one did. We take so much for granted everyday.
Often we forget the importance of a warm hug and think that our kids might not like it or feel embarrassed. They won’t. They crave our affection and love.
Life gets in the way, and we get caught up in our daily routine, forgetting to give our kids the love and attention they need. We worry about insignificant things but miss the most essential element- love.
Today, take a minute to think of something your kid has done that makes you proud, and give them a warm hug. Embrace them, appreciate them, and remind them of your unconditional love. Let’s make this a part of our daily routine, and let our kids know how much they are loved.
Don’t miss this opportunity to show your affection towards your kid. They’re a precious soul that was brought into this world to be cherished and cared for by you. What an absolute honor. Don’t ever take it for granted and let’s celebrate Give Your Kids a Hug Day with as much enthusiasm as possible!
