Hugs are one of the things I miss the most from Mike.
Getting hugs from my children, friends, co-workers etc. are all wonderful and give me the strength sometimes when I need it. But we all know that there's NOTHING like getting a hug from your husband/wife. You have a connection with that person that cannot be shared with another and a hug from them gives you an emotional uplift and strength that can't be compared to any other. I hug Mike all the time. He cannot communicate verbally, so I am always connecting through touch. I pray that he feels my love and support through my hugs.
I miss getting a hug like that. I miss that intimacy, the comfort and protection that can only come from being held by the one you love.
