Hug Someone

The rules for this award are:
One: Tell us about a memorable hug you’ve had. It can be a person, pet, whatever…
Two: “Hug” at least one other blogger or as many as you like.


I just received this award from Lisa over at Must be doing something right. And I thank her for my hug. Sometimes those hugs whether computerized or physical come at just the right times.

My most memorable hug was when I went to see Matt for his bootcamp graduation. Me & his mom had flown to Oklahoma for the graduation. The first day was Family Day & we went to the little ceremony they had & right away I spotted my Matt marching up to where we were all gathered. He finally caught my eye & flashed me a huge smile. Then once the ceremony was over, the soldiers had to go back to their rooms to change into their uniforms. Me & his mom followed everyone back to the barracks & waited. We were standing under the garage area & their were rooms up above us. I kept looking up to this one room where I could see soldiers walking around & then all of a sudden my Matt stuck his head out of the window & flashed me that melt my heart smile once again...next thing I know he disappeared & was down where I was wrapping his arms around me for the most wonderful hug I had been waiting for. That was the first time we were ever away from each other & we were so thrilled to see each other again. That hug made me feel like the luckiest girl alive. I will always remember that hug & the feeling I had at that moment.

I am going to send this hug to:

April at April's Flowers
The Sand is Different Here

I can only imagine that special hug and I can visualize Matt's pretty face smiling at you from the window! April tagged me for the hug... I left a comment. I don't remember any sweet hugs like that... just painful ones. LOL
