Happy National Hug Your Kids Day

Today, Monday, July 21, 2008, is National Hug Your Kids Day!


I bet that’s news to you.  This is the first annual National Hug Your Kids Day.  Its the result of a tragic loss and the remarkable strength of one mom, Michelle Nichols.


Michelle formerly wrote the Business Week magazine column, “Savvy Selling”.  Tragedy struck and she lost a wonderful child too soon.


Michelle’s response was to make it her personal mission to remind we parents that we’d better enjoy, love, appreciate and hug our kids while we can.


The result is a great book and the declaration of July 21 as National Hug Your Kids Day!
