I spent my walk today contemplating about snuggling. I was thinking about being a child and climbing up on my Mommy's lap and just snuggling in. Then I thought about my children. I had one snuggler and one not. I enjoyed so much the holding and cuddling with a small infant. Grandchildren provided more opportunity for this action. My first granddaughter and my first grandson were both great snugglers. Even today at 10 years old, my grandson still will snuggle in when he is on my lap. There is such a strong emotion of love and peace in those actions.
I have also envisioned snuggling with Jesus while sitting in the dentist office and having my wisdom teeth pulled. It brought great comfort in a very uncomfortable situation. In times of stress, I will mentally crawl into Jesus' lap and just snuggle in. I gain that same sense of love and peace.
As an adult, hugging a loved one brings the warmth of a snuggle. It passes the love and care you share, between you. It passes strength to endure the stresses of the world. Learn to hug and be hugged.
So when we get to Heaven, will we be able to snuggle with our parents again? Will we be able to hug those who have been remarkable in our life and have passed before us?
Some questions have no answers, but we can share love and strength by giving a hug today.
