Hugs heal hurts and harm
Hugs hide hopelessness and horror
Hugs herald heroic heights
It suddenly struck me as H is for Hugs came to mind for today's letter and I wrote this poem that I might have used this before in a previous A - Z Challenge and lo and behold I did - Last Year!! A different poem but all the same sentiment that Hugs are an important part of being a teacher who children can turn to when they are in trouble, when they are hurt or when they are so full of joy they simply want to share it with you.
I have seen my own 10 year old child run into the outstretched arms of her headmaster to share her absolute joy when overcoming a sports day catastrophe - my heart still wells up when I recall this moment - what a wonderful headteacher he was :) And in my classrooms hugs were always received kindly or given when needed as the last line says - Hugs Help!
Now it's your turn - tell me when you last received or gave a hug? Do you think you are a "huggy" type of person? I'd love to know so leave a comment below :)
