Hugs are wonderful moments. Like a picture, a silent hug is worth a thousand words. It is comforting. It is healing. It says, I know you are hurting, but I don’t know how you feel or what to say yet I’m here for you. It says, you can lean on me. It says, I care. Most of all, it says to a grief stricken parent, you don’t have to say a word, I’m right here to hold you up.
