1. A close, affectionate embrace.

Sara says I am hard hugging. I will admit that I am. When I hug you, you better know that there's love in it. Rarely, very rarely do I do one of those hugs where you tap someone lightly. The only time I do that is if I am uncomfortable or I feel like the person coming towards me for embrace is not appropiate. to give you an example is not possible, I just know it when it happens. Sometimes I am forced to give a side-ways hug because of position and usually I crush shoulder blades together.
I have a friend, that when he hugs you it's like you can feel God hugging you, it's safe, and warm, and loving. it's like the greatest feeling ever. I also have another friend who I would hug a lot more but too many people I think are watching, and they make it into something inappropiate, and it's not.
That's the thing, perception bugs me. People have no idea what's in or on my heart. They think (and that's their problem, sometimes people just aren't that good at thinking) that there must be something inappropiate going on, when truly it's all on the up and up. So, I think I've just decided... I don't care what people think, I'm hugging!!
Hug O' War
by Shel Silverstein
I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.
Proverbs 4:7-9 7 Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, [a] get understanding. 8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.
9 She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor."
