Gimme a (((((hug)))))

Do you ever just feel the need for a hug?  
Do you know somebody who gives the absolute best hugs....ever?!?  
Me, too!!!

I'm a touchy-feely kinda gal.....which is odd considering I wasn't raised in a family where a whole lot of affection was shown!! 
But....

I hugs!!! 

Happy hugs....loving hugs....comforting hugs!!!

I just adore all of 'em....especially those that you get for no reason at all....the "just because" hugs....and the ones from GRANDsons are the absolute best!!! 
;-)

Why am I talking about hugs?
I'm not exactly sure!!

Other than....I'm feeling pretty happy these days....and I want to share!!!  
I sure do wish I could reach thru this screen and hug you right now....and let you know that you are so very loved....and appreciated....not just by me....but more importantly by our sweet Jesus!!!
So....since I can't be there in person to give you a big ole hug....
....here's the best I can do.....

((((((Sweet Reader))))))

And, if that didn't work....then, let Jesus wrap His loving arms around you and give you the best hug of all!!!

Ecclesiastes 3:5
.....a time to embrace.... 

HOPE you have a "Terrific Thursday", Sweet Reader!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  3. This is my first visit, so no better way to begin than with a hug! We're a very huggy family - like you I'm very tactile, and I guess that's the way the kids have grown up. So, from a very sunny Isle of Lewis in Scotland (((((H-U-G))) !!

  5. SO funny! I just asked blogger friend Jacquelyn to send me a picture she took on vacation of a woman wearing a Tee Shirt that read "Free Hugs". She was passing out candy kisses and giving out "hugs". I latched on to the idea and think we'll use it this summer at our town's annual celebration....our church will be the hug-givers and pass out little cards with information about church/the love of Jesus, actual hugs, AND candy!

    Hugs to YOU, now!

  9. I love hugs, but my family growing up wasn't very huggy either.
    It really bothers me when I try to hug someone, and they tense up - kind of like they don't know how to hug.

    Hugs to you too!
