ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH,2019
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 a Bear Day, which is a day to give a big hug to your favorite teddy bear. The ancient Egyptians are credited with making the first plush toys. Modern stuffed animals were first introduced in the 1830’s but they were homemade with cloth and straw. In 1880, Germany began manufacturing stuffed animals that closer resembled the cute toys we still purchase today.
Stuffed animals were not popular in the US until 1906 when President Theodore Roosevelt inspired the production of the first Teddy Bear.
To celebrate today, snuggle up with your favoirite Teddy Bear or purchase a new cuddly bear. You can even give out extra bear hugs to your friends and family. Happy Hug a Bear Day!
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.
The only bear I have left here at my house is the one pictured above. He is part of my fall decorations and I put him out every year to enjoy. He’s on the small side and not very huggable, but he is cute.
I do love to get and give hugs. But don’t get them on a daily basis since I live by myself but when the family gets together I try my best to catch up on the ones I’ve missed. Today’s pictures are from our family get together this past summer.
Today we’re supposed to have rain mixed with snow coming our way. It’s to be much colder too. We were in the 50’s yesterday so I took advantage of the good weather to get out and do some grocery shopping. Today I’ll be staying in and keeping warm.
Today’s dinner will be leftover Taco Tuesday casserole which turned out quite well. I was out of whole kernel corn so I used some creamed corn instead and that worked out just fine. This recipe is a keeper and I’ll making it again. I’ll be putting the rest in the freezer for another day.
I hope you all have a GREAT day! Happy Thursday!

I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
