Here's a little day brightener dedicated to all those on cleft-talk 
especially those going through surgery and recovering: 


It is wondrous what a hug can do,
A hug can cheer you when you're blue.
A hug can say, "I love you so,"
or, "Oh, I hate to see you go."

A hug is a "Welcome back again."
A hug can soothe a small child's pain
and bring the rainbow after rain.
The hug! There's just no doubt about it,
we scarcely can survive without it.

A hug delights, warms, and charms,
it must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,
sweet for sisters, even fine for brothers.
And chances are favorite uncles and aunts
will love them more than potted plants.

Hugs can break the language barrier
and make the day seem merrier.
No need to fret about the store of them,
the more you give, the more you get of 'em. 
So stretch those arms without delay 
and give someone a hug today!
