Reach Out and Touch

Touch is one of our seven senses given to us by God.

Babies have a need for touch that is essential for proper growth and development.

Studies done in hospitals and orphanages demonstrate that infants lose weight and become ill without touch.

My mother obviously knew the power of touch.  She could never resist holding and kissing those little babies.  She never tired of it even when all of her kids got older too.  :)

I have a friend who became a certified massage therapist because she saw what an impact touch had on her grandmother when she was in the hospital. Something as simple as massaging her grandmother's feet brought such comfort. Touch is important.
