Hard Wired to being In Touch

Grandkids reaching out for each other

 

Capturing this moment reminded me that children that grow up with good touch will know the value of healing touch.  More than words can tell, a hug or reaching out to hold someone’s hand, or feet,  will offer comfort, show someone they care, strength to help with a burden, understanding with grace, reassurance that they are there, a persistent presence.

As they grow up and begin the normal sibling squabbling I will remind them of this photo and tell them how they were not happy until they found each other and could be “in touch.”
