The Huge Hug Club

The Huge Hug Club

26th March 2020

Last year as a trial, l introduced this Club to my readership – it ran as a pilot for  8 episodes and was then tucked away in a safe place for later use and when it might be appreciated again as a way for our community to know we are all there for each other.  Well that time is now – there is no other time like now when the hug would be greatly appreciated.

My thanks Lisa of Lismore Paper to for creating this new design for The Huge Hug Club.

The – C – Crisis as l tend to call it – is causing a great deal of anxiety and worry for people –  l can understand that – never before has a headache, a sneeze, a cough or even a slight fever meant so much to any sufferer than now. It is so easy in this time of confusion and concern to see more to things than perhaps are truly there.

Anyway, starting from today for twice a week until it is no longer needed as a companion, l shall be awarding hugs to my readership and friends alike. We will make this post a bit of fun as well. Some music, some quotes – you know – some escapism fun!

Now if anyone wants a hug just let me know below in the comments section and next time around you will receive said hug.

Everyone loves a hug and everyone deserves a hug.

There is a great deal of beauty to the hug ….


Reduce stress

They can keep your immune system healthy

Boost your heart health

Make you happier

Reduce your anxiety and fears

Can make the monsters go away

Reduce pain

A Form of communication – as in ‘just to say hello’


For Laughing To!

Because we all need to laugh!

For Listening To

Because we need to remember to relax

Lyrics included for those to sing along to!

For Philosophy To Read!

Because we need perspective!


“Happiness is a direction, not a place.” – Sydney J. Harris


“The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” – William Morris

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” – Buddha
