A Hand to Hold

There are many situations that often include holding hands with another person:
Parent & Child
Best Friends
Support Person
Husband Wife
Boyfriend Girlfriend

This indicates some sort of connection to another human being and assures you that someone is there for you in some way.

Many things come to mind when I see people holding hands -

The friend holding your hand the day you lost your grandparent in junior high,

The friend you went through school with and you are walking the line to graduate and you are both scared and excited,

The friend sitting with you at the doctor's office waiting on the results,

The friend sitting with you while you fill out paper work to file for divorce,

The friend helping you cope with bad news you just don't know how to process, &

The touch of someone you care about in times of good or bad.. it all helps us feel connected.

Touch is so important to us all.

Be there for someone today even if all you do is hug them, hold their hand and listen, it makes all the difference in the world to that person.
