    Wonderful Feeling Being Hugged

    It's one of the greatest pick me ups to be hugged. Just love the feeling of warmth and the connection to someone's soul when we're hugging. Nothing can change a bad day into a great one than a hug from my beloved husband.

    Not just a simple hug,

    but one that you feel the love. You don't want to pull away, their warm body feels like its a part of you.

    Huggs are amazing and I love the simple action

    of a hug. Huggs can brighten someones day and they are truly meaningfull too me. People take simple acts of pleasure for granted too much these days.
