Sometimes All I Need Is A Hug

I read this quote and it touched me because I have been alone a fair amount of time while I am healing and I have little personal contact with people.  My little Valentina came down for a visit last night and when she left we just hugged for a really long time... it felt great.  I miss all her hugs, she gives me many through out the day.

Hugs from people that I love are so amazing, they have the power to calm me down or make me incredibly happy.  They always invoke good and uplifting thoughts and feelings.  Some of my fondest memories are being with someone that I love and just hugging... feeling each others hearts beat.. not having to say a word.

Sometimes as the quote says, there are no words... only a hug will do.  I have been majorly lacking in that department, right now... all I need is a really good long hug, where I feel safe just to let go...

I think Valentina will be home in a few weeks, I plan to make up some of those missing hugs... plus enjoy some of the present and not worry so much about what might or might not happen in the future. 

Some hugs I have had in my life have been so amazing that if I close my eyes, I can almost feel those arms around me.... those are good memories. 

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future
