    When was the last time you got hugged or you hugged someone? Was there a particular reason or no reason at all? How did it make you feel?

    When you hug someone, it just shows that you care for that person. I go to my job at a School filled with at-risk children everyday, and even they can help a hug. When I walk through the door, I get hugs and give hugs because that is a traditional way of greeting someone. It just shows how much that person means to you, or how much you mean to them. Neither way, you give or receive a gesture that shows that you are a loved one.

    :toast: to all the loved ones around the world!

    I LOOOOVE HUGS!!!. Especially Bear hugs. It makes me feel safe and warm.A good Hug can make you feel really good, a bad one can make you wish that you never got it at all!. When I can, I make sure to give atleast five hugs to all my loved ones!.

    Un hunh, I love me some hugs......

    Ooops!, I didn't even answer your question did I Queen? here it goes: I hugged my husband and my lil' girl last night. I didn't do it this Morning 'cause I didn't want to wake them up. But I did seal my departure with a :smooch:

    The value of a hug is a feeling of warmth between two people. The last hug I gave was to one of my kids---just because...

    Hugging hold a great value : to hug is to show warmth and care to be hug'd tells you
    someone care .......it can be an embrace of comfort and even a welcome or goodbye
    it also can make your day brighter within inner feelings it's a very caressing thing to hug
    I hug my children every day and every night to leave warmth and asure them love .

    we don't have to have a reason to hug , but we also don't need to turn our backs on hugging
    someone it cost nothing and it hurts noone it also can be therapeutic for you or someone.

    HAVE U GAVE OR HAD YOUR HUG TODAY !
    I DID ............................................................

    Yes.. Queen there is great value in giving a hug. Words unspoken. When the kids fall down. After you disipline the kids. Give a hug.

    When you can't bring yourself to say your sorry. Give a HUG!

    If your confronting a break in your realtionship, and words have been said: Give a HUG!

    I gave many hugs recently, not today.

    :uhh: This Brother's hug count is getting low. I'm experiencing a deficiency of HUGS!

    I love hugs. Trinity :luvu: were are you girl... drive down my way give Hodee Bear a HUG! :luvv:

    There have been several medical studies that show the power of human touch effects the immune system and psychology. If you don't get enough touch, like hugs, you can become sick more easily and suffer from depression. I know that's one of the reasons I've been so ill this year - not enough hugs and touch. It's vital to life.

    HUGS are wonderful. I think kids who grow up with a lot of hugs become warm and caring adults. The elderly LOVE hugs...no matter where they come from. Even though I don't like pets much...even dogs love a good hug. I can't tell you how many times I've given a co-worker a hug and it's really turned their mood and day around...especially my boss - she doesn't confide in many people.

    Hugs are nothing but positive vibes spread the best way...it's hard to FAKE the FUNK when giving a hug.
