Life is a Special Occasion!
The last Thursday of each June, people across the nation celebrate National Handshake Day. Shake the hand of, at least one person, that you would not have on any other day. You may just want to wish them a good day while doing so.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
Shaking hands has been documented as far back as the 5th century BC. Many researchers believe the handshake originated as a gesture of peace by demonstrating that the hand was not holding a weapon.
The handshake was created for soldiers in order to show each other that they did not have a weapon on them; the handshake was used to signify peace. Over time, however, the handshake has become a sign for several things. It is a sign of greeting or welcoming, agreement, and congratulations. It is a sign of good sportsmanship when playing sports. When two people shake hands, it comes with a reason and has meaning.
Handshakes are for strangers, I’ll give you a hug instead !
I hope you all have a GREAT day ! HAPPY Thursday !
Please join me in saying a prayer for my DD as she’ll be having surgery on her foot tomorrow. She got a piece of something, possibly a piece of a skeleton of a sting ray barb, in her foot while on the beach on vacation a few weeks ago and it has to be surgically removed. It’s a tricky operation as it is near a major artery and critical nerves in her foot. May the dear Lord bless her with a successful surgery and may He guide the hands of the doctor caring for her. We pray in all things, Thy will be done. Amen.
