It's a beautiful thought, Craig, and if gentle hugs could become wee puffs of air, every person serving and every family missing and/or mourning, would feel a gentle puff a wind on their face and know we all care.
(Our grandchildren's school decided to send 'shoe boxes' filled with wee gifts from the kids plus cards and letters to the people serving so far from home - and I'm still smiling imagining the soldier's faces when they open the Christmas boxes to find toy 'tops' and loved collections of 'Hot Wheel' cars, etc - all chosen by the little ones themselves and while far from 'useful', they were given with love and I suspect that's really all that matters, right?).
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.
While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
