    Hug For Me To.

    I does seem that in the worst of times that a hug helps me so much. I'm always smiling and laughing on the out side but not on the inside. I'm looking for people that may understand what i'm talking about. I think that as time goes on I will be able to share more.

    *hugs* I love hugs! Hugs can be for comfort and cheering up, and to show love (romantic or friendly), and appreciation, or they can just be random! :D :D :D :D :D *hugs*
