If there was one theme to people’s hopes for the new year, it was hugs and connections with loved ones. But there were plenty of other sentiments expressed too. It’s not too late to add your 6 words – leave them in a comment. And, from EG News: Happy, happy new year to everyone!
Hugs, seeing smiles, kids in school
Driving to reunions, pandemic in rearview.
Kids get to be kids again.
Entire family dining at one table!
To get out of my house!
(Although I kinda like it here.)

Give me another glass of wine.
(Actually, make that a whiskey please.)
Hug everybody, smile without a mask.
Please, just a boring ass year!
Spend time with beloved family members
Let’s all agree 2020 never happened.
Inspire, learn, laugh, travel, hug, serve!
May Beauty enfold you in 2021.
Hoping we remember 2021 as Babyboom!
I long to wear lipgloss again.
Kindness, kindness, kindness, kindness, kindness, kindness!!!!!!
2021 is going to be epic.

Families close, worries far, friends together.
God bless us, every one! ~ 2021!
That no child go hungry anywhere.
Smiles, handshakes, hugs and more hugs.

Get good grades and a job.
How can I be of service?
May the lord bless your health.

Watch my kids hug their grandparents.
Camaraderie. SMILES! Equanimity. HUGS! Recovery. LOVE!
Peace of mind, peace for country.
Looking forward to lots of hugging.

*I bet that’s one that you’ll get a lot. But I miss hugging family and friends so much it hurts. A hug means more than “I love you”. It means I believe in you. We’re in this together. We are humans. We need each other. Thank you. You are the best. There’s no one like you. It’s an exclamation point. And a promise. It’s a send off and a welcome home. It’s Congratulations. It’s You did it! It’s Bless you. It’s I’ve missed you. It’s You make me happy and I can’t wait to see you again soon. It’s good luck. It’s Be Brave. It’s Bravo. It’s Get Better Soon. It’s I’m sorry and I’m sad. It’s I know, I know. It’s It will get better soon. It’s Hallelujah! And Will Wonders Never Cease. It’s You mean the world to me. It’s I love you.
