Power of a Hug
A few years ago, a set of twins were born.
They were kept in separate incubators as usual, but one of
them was not expected to live.
One of the nurses, going against hospital policy, placed both
babies in the same incubator. As soon as they were reunited,
the healthier twin threw her arm over her weaker sister in
an endearing embrace. What happened? The little sister's temperature
rose to normal and her heart rate stabilized, and she survived!
Both babies thrived and went home together. At home they continued
to share a crib and were always snuggling closely. Today they
are happy pre-schoolers.
Did the hospital change its policy? You bet it did! After
seeing the effects of putting the two girls together, they
now put siblings together. How about that! You can never underestimate
the value of a hug!
Let's not forget to embrace the ones we love. May all your
days be filled with hugs!
