Works for me. Abandoned in a warm room, left on my own, when someone breaks a promiss or a commitment, yes I do get ice cold. And no hot shower gets me warm again. No matter how sweaty I can get. I stay cold to the bone.
Whereas someone telling me something caring, even from far away, or in a letter, will warm me.
A few days ago a friend did send me a shawl to warm me, literally and even more by manner of speach. The mere thought of her sending me this shawl, when I could use some encouragement, warmed me already.
