The Hug

As I wrapped my arms around myself
I realized
I was hugging
One of God's children

    Hi Richard, short and too the point, well said my friend. We all need to feel those hugs. Yes, we must learn to Love ourselves. For some, ourselves are all we have. Tell It as It Is. Have a good day day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    I've never thought of it quite like that. Funny how just a few words can tell so much in deep and beautiful detail. I love it. Juli-Michelle

    One cannot love others, unless one learns to love themselves. I love this attitude!

    Thanks, Carrie in this world we seem to be so worried about self esteem and yet we don't truly know how to love ourselves. If only we could see ourselves through God's eyes.
