Thank you! My former husband's family didn't hug and I hugged his Mother and she let out a loud gasp and went rigid... They all changed and became more loving towards each other, after I married into their family. It changed them forever and they all hug each other now. :) (I hug people I care about and love) Hugs are great! ;)
