    Virtual Hugs Are Nice But ...

    yah, i enjoy a good virtual hug just as much as the next person, but they still cant replace the feeling of someones arms around you and the heat emanating off the other persons body pressed in close. It also cant replace the feeling of friendship and love put into a good hug...

    Goddess Knows We Could All Use One.

    At least today. I am a hugger. I love to be held close....and the small gestures speak volumes over the huge ones. Like wild flowers pick on the road side mean so much more than roses bought at the store. And a home cooked meal by candle light means more than a fancy meal...

    As Much As

    The virtual hugs happen from me they should convey the comfort and the warmth that is associated with them. So when I gesture my friends with a hug of what ever variety that it is, know that it is meant to be done as a real hug and hope it comforts you...

    I Want A Bearhug

    Sometimes I just want a real, bearhug? Ya know? I'm not the kind of person who comes across as affectionate and willing for a hug. I'm not a big ball of sunshine and I don't show my emotions. But for once, I would love for somebody to walk up and hug me and hold me together. Then...

    Love ended with you. Seeing you is like having

    a phantom limb, only it feels like my heart tears again. It nothing physical that its not. Its much much worse. I let you in where no one else has ever been. Now, you just haunt me. Day in, day out, you just haunt me. I miss you

    However ...

    ... reality is what it is. This is why I 'embrace' so many of you with my wings. When I'm in that place where nothing else seems to help, I wrap my arms around myself, and visualize the one I wish to be holding me.

    I Wish I Could.....

    I wish I could reach in and GIVE a real hug to my EP friends when they need one! Hugs say so much and a virtual one with a few words is good but there is nothing as comforting as someone's arms around you or yours around a friend saying, "I care".....so all of my friends out...
