A Hug for the Soul …

… is needed today, more than ever. So many worries. So many fears. Be brave, be strong, continue to care, give and love.

The feeling of goodness, of caring and sharing is growing stronger within many of us. We are the majority on this our beautiful planet Earth. We are making positive changes, albeit slower than we would wish.

Take care of you and yours in difficult days ahead. I continue to believe in you. Every single one. You, each of you, are so special and needed today for your talent, wisdom and especially your caring ways.

“Great hope in one’s heart is a hug for the soul” ~Plh

Never give in, never give up. Believe. You can do this.

 

With much affection, I wish you well,

Overwhelming Life and A Temporary Cure

Sometimes life does seem overwhelming, doesn’t it? Thank goodness for family and friends both near and far and a special thank goodness for love …. and hugs, lots and lots of hugs.

Hugs are known to be an excellent therapeutic medicine for the temporary relief of life’s difficult trials (with no negative side effects – although has been shown to be addictive). ♡

Have a positive and relaxing weekend. One filled with love and hugs.

With sincere affection,

Love, Laughter, Strawberries and Hugs

image

… These are a few of my favorite things.

And you! Definitely you. And the aftermath of a rainshower when rainbows appear, birds sing and the fragrance of life bursts forth.

And giggles, I love little children giggling – so totally infectious. And puppies and kittens (goes without saying I guess). Flowers, I simple love flowers, all kinds and strawberries still on the vine, red, sweet and just waiting to be picked and popped into my waiting mouthwatering mouth.

And good news. Any good news, doesn’t matter what. And music where people spontaneously sing along, because we can’t help ourselves. How great is that?

There are just too many things to name when it comes to favorite things.

But then it seems to me even on the hardest of days remembering our favorite things that make us happy (and grateful) is an absolutely wonderful way to go on!

Take care of you.
With love and affection,

Today, give lots of extra hugs!

Not only does it feel wonderful for both parties,  it is also a very heart healthy thing to do.

I hope you are taking care of yourselves, remember if you aren’t well not only can you not accomplish your own personal goals but you can’t be there for others when you’re needed.

Have a wonderful day and week ahead,

With much affection (and hugs)

Today is National Hug Day 2015 – Start hugging now!

Yes, today is “officially” National Hug Day for the year 2015 and while I think every day should be hug day and everyone should hug one another “frequently” for those who need another reason to hug, here it is!

Have a wonderful day everyone, filled with love and of course just oodles of hugs, because it is a very very wonderful thing!

With much affection, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The Secret’s Out – My Ghost Blogwriter, Teddy Bear!

Yes, sigh, no more secret. I do have a ghost blogwriter, the one who writes my inspirational pieces is “Teddy”. Someone snuck in and snapped this shot of him hard at work, writing the next uplifting blog. So now you know. But really, who better qualified to speak of unconditional love then Ted Bear, I mean … really!

Happy thoughts to comfort and warm you!

While drinking my first cup of coffee this morning, I began to actually notice the things around me. The vividly blue sky, the chill air outdoors, (signaling the change in seasons).  and as I noticed each thing, I decided today was a good day to spend dwelling on happy thoughts to comfort and warm – so when the stress of the day’s activities began to build, I’d have happy thoughts to sustain me.

So here’s a few (happy thoughts) to share as we move closer to the weekend:

“We are part of the digital world. This means we can instantly send happy thoughts, such as saying thank you, I love you, hugs, kisses, thinking of you, I think you’re wonderful, and we can even take a little bit of time to “create something”  whenever the happy mode takes us, and share it with others!”

.*.

“And even though we are a part of the technologically enhanced world, we can still only be in the current day. Make the most of today – it’s the one your actually living in. It’s ‘your day’ to make of it what you will!”

.*.

“The sweetest thought I can think of right now is how much I enjoy my online and offline connections with family & friends and how incredibly lucky I am to have both!”

Have a good Thursday/Friday, remember to think lots of happy thoughts!

A happy, colorful and snugly photograph to leave you with!
