Little Sister Hugs Her Brother Every Day When He Gets Off The School Bus

This is the type of bond every parent wants their children to have.

At the end of every single school day, this little girl waits patiently with her mom for the big kid bus to stop at the end of their driveway for one adorable reason. She’s waiting for her brother to step off so she can give him the biggest hug!

While most older brothers would be annoyed at this daily sign of affection from a younger sibling, this awesome bro reciprocates the hug every day. It’s just about the sweetest thing you’ll ever see!

These two are total sweethearts!

Her for all the love and hugs, of course, but also the older brother for being so mindful of pulling his little sis away from the bus. Good work, parents!

When You Hug An Animal — Big Or Small — They Know You Mean Well

January 21 was National Hugging Day — and before you say, ‘Wait…there’s a day for that?’ let me reassure you that of course there is, and it’s incredibly important. So it may not be equal to Independence Day, but some might argue it’s a close second.

Here to show you just how important — oh yeah, and adorable — it is are the incredible folks over at Edgar’s Mission in Australia.

Would someone possibly, maybe, perhaps give me a hug? After that, I’m dying for one!

If you’d like to learn more about the incredible work that Edgar’s Mission does at their animal sanctuary, you can do so here.

A Reporter Asked These Astronauts A Question. Their Response Was Simple But Said It All.

An American, a German, and a Russian walk into a press conference…no, this is not the start to some lame joke, but the start to a story of a truly magical moment between three astronauts. NASA’s Reid Wiseman, ESA’s Alexander Gerst, and commander Maksim Suraev of Russia’s Roscosmos are all crew members of the International Space Station, and during a recent press conference they were asked by a reporter whether US-EU-Russia tensions over Ukraine had altered or influenced their relations. Here is their emphatic answer.

Their message was clear: There’s no politics in space or on the International Space Station. Just astronauts and scientists from all corners of the globe working together for humanity. Source: RT Share their friendly embrace with your friends below.

This Incredibly Kind Woman Is On A Mission To Hug As Many Soldiers As She Can.

Elizabeth Laird is known as The Hug Lady by the soldiers of Ft. Hoof in Killeen, Texas, and for good reason. This kind woman attends every single deployment and homecoming at the army base with one purpose: to hug every soldier going to or returning from war.

It all began back in 2003, after a soldier deploying overseas was the first to hug Elizabeth as she saw the troops off. A veteran of the Armed Forces herself, Elizabeth felt compelled to continue the tradition. She since set out on the mission to hug every departing and returning soldier.

I wish everyone was as warm hearted as her. A hug can be so uplifting and healing, especially to those experiencing something as serious as combat.
