*I bet that’s one that you’ll get a lot. But I miss hugging family and friends so much it hurts. A hug means more than “I love you”. It means I believe in you. We’re in this together. We are humans. We need each other. Thank you. You are the best. There’s no one like you. It’s an exclamation point. And a promise. It’s a send off and a welcome home. It’s Congratulations. It’s You did it! It’s Bless you. It’s I’ve missed you. It’s You make me happy and I can’t wait to see you again soon. It’s good luck. It’s Be Brave. It’s Bravo. It’s Get Better Soon. It’s I’m sorry and I’m sad. It’s I know, I know. It’s It will get better soon. It’s Hallelujah! And Will Wonders Never Cease. It’s You mean the world to me. It’s I love you.
