For Friday, June 29th, 2018
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Hug Holiday Day which encourages us to give hugs to this who need attention. Especially the elderly, sick or invalid and lonely people who need the good feelings provided by a caring hug.
A hug can speak louder than words. A simple hug can change a person’s day, emotions and even their life. It has been scientifically prove that hugs have positive effects on health. Studies have shown that hugging can result in reduced blood pressure and has a preventive effect against depression.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.
I love hugs and the great feeling you get when hugging. I like to get hugs and give hugs. So here is a big (((HUG))) from me to you all. One disadvantage of living alone is that getting a hug a day isn’t possible, but I do try to make up for it when I can.
Today’s pictures are of some the great hugs that my family share. When they are around there is always plenty of hugging going on for sure. I’m so thankful for them.
It’s time to get ready for the hot weekend that is coming our way. My aim is to keep cool. We don’t have too many 90 degree days here in Ohio, but when we do it seems they come packed with lots of humidity too. When you put heat and humidity together you get a heat index of around 100 degrees and that is time for me to stay in and keep cool.
Not much cooking at all is going to be going on here at my house. It’s time for salads and sandwiches here.
Tuna salad makes for an excellent sandwich filling or you can mound it on lettuce leaves or mixed greens for a lighter lunch. You can even core tomatoes and filled them with tuna salad for a summer appetizer.
2 cans tuna, drained and flaked
2 large hard cooked eggs
3 to 4 tbsp. mayonaise
1 tbsp. dill relish
2 tbsp. finely chopped onion
salt and pepper
Combine the tuna, chopped eggs, 3 tbsp. mayo, the dill relish and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste. (I like to use lemon pepper in mine )
Serve on buns or lettuce leaves for a great meal.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
A hug delights and warms and charms,
that must be why God gave us arms.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6113. for hugs, always welcome
6114. for sandwiches that make a meal
6115. for air conditioning that works
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
