Needing an extra hug

I live in a family that hugs... all the time. At least once a day I will stand in the "hugging position" waiting... wishing... someone would hug me. Within seconds a family member will walk up to me and give me a great big bear hug. I crave human touch. I need it to feel loved, whether it be a pat on the back, a touch on the hand, a hug... I need it... If I am in an argument with someone I have to have some sort of kind hug or handshake in order to feel resolved. I just need human touch.

There are some days I need it much more... like today. It wasn't a bad day, it was just long and I need an extra hug.

What about you? What makes you feel loved?

I loved to be hugged too! I get it from my hubby and kids...we actually have a rule in our home! I think I made this rule because of my need to be hugged!

Every morning at our house...you are not allowed to do anything (well except go pee) before you give mommy and daddy (if he hasn't left for work yet) their "Morning hug". It is so fun! Sometimes they will be up before me...and I will see them playin cars on the floor together...and I run in and say, "Hey what are you doing???" and they will stop what they are doing and run to me and say, "You were sleeping! Here's your am hug!" It's the best! I sneak in kisses then too!
