The Power of Touch
One of the things I miss most in this pandemic is the power of touch. Seeing someone you love or have missed and not being able to run into their arms or shake their hand is hard.
Last week, I finally drove to see my mom and dad about three hours away. My dad has been battling Lymphoma for the last couple of years, so I wasn’t taking any chances and maintained severe social distancing. The desire to hug them and hold them was so overpowering that it reminded me just how important human touch is to our psyche and well being.
Somewhere out there today, someone you love needs that touch. While actual touch may not be possible, there are many ways you can take that moment and show them you care. Send a text, email, FaceTime, call or send them a card. We all need that touch, now more than ever. Sometimes all it takes is that virtual hug to get us through. #morningswithron
