The ‘Under the Microscope’ series of blog posts explores items that I have helped to catalogue and digitise for the Teams of Our Lady Transatlantic Super-Regional archive.
“A hug makes you feel good all day”.
A Hug as an Expression of Friendship
This Under the Microscope post looks at another item from the Newsletters collection. Whilst I have shared some humorous items previously, today’s item is more thoughtful.
This time, I found this rather lovely item in the September-November 2000 issue of the Great Britain, Trinidad and Tobago Regional newsletter.
Who wrote it?
The author is Father Ken Payne, the then Regional Chaplain for the Region of Great Britain, Trinidad and Tobago.
I like how a hug can have so many important qualities and factors, and how true they all are! It’s a lovely reminder of how even a seemingly small thing such as a hug can make such a huge impact, and the suggestion of a hug as being ‘energy efficient’ is is yet another reminder of the humour within Teams.
