Ice Cream and a Bear Hug.

When you get right down to it, that's exactly what you need sometimes. Regardless of who you are, or where you're from, these two things can do immense good, when applied at the right time.

When your life is totally messed up and you feel like shit, sometimes all you need is for someone to sit down next to you, pass you a pint of Ben and Jerry's, slip their arm around your shoulders, and say that they think you're an alright person.

That's all. No happy, go-lucky catchphrases. No waxing philosophical. No botched attempt to create laughter. Just ice cream and a big hug. Nothing more.

There are so many people I wish I could do that for. Just a hug and some ice cream. A simple way of saying, "You matter."

LG, if you are reading this, you are one of those people. Be at peace, little one.

And as for the rest of you...

Salaam Aleykum, Bitches!
