ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 21ST,2020
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.
Today is National Hug Day which celebrates the hug which is a form of intimacy that usually includes closing or holding the arms around the neck or waist of another person. Hugging has been proven to have many health benefits . They are incredibly good for us. One study has shown that hugs increase levels of oxytocin and reduce blood pressure and relieve stress.
Doctors recommend a minimum of 4 to 8 hugs per day for emotional well being, but more is always better. Hugging is not particular to human beings there are many species of animals that act in similar exchanges of warmth.
Whether you prefer Bear hugs, Heart to Heart hugs,Cheek hugs, or Side hugs , embrace your loved ones today to show your love and affection.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.
I love to give and receive hugs, but don’t always get my daily quota since I live by myself, But I do try to make up for it when I’m in the company of others.They do make one feel good. Just in case you need one, here is a (((BIG HUG))) From me to all of you today It’s not quite as good as a real one, but will have to do for now. until I next see you.
We remain in the deep freeze here, it hasn’t gone above freezing for several days, but I do have an errand that will take me out again today. When I went to the office yesterday to pay my rent, they were closed for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday So we’ll try again today. I’m also out of bananas and donuts so I’ll stop at the store while I’m out. I have a good warm coat and it will keep me warm. Thankfully the snow has stopped and we only got about 4 inches of that white stuff all told. It was enough that I had to shovel a bit, so I did get some needed exercise. I like to keep my part of the driveway clear, but I do share it with two others that do not feel the same so the rest of it remains snowy and icy as you can see in the picture above.
Someone asked if my moblle home kept warm in the winter time and my answer is yes, but I have found that I have to keep the temp set at 72 degrees or above to prevent the pipes from freezing. It’ also is easy to cool in the summertime. Of course I have the huge tree in the yard that also gives me plenty of shade.
The picture below shows my newest grand puppy cuddling up with his step brother. Nice they get along so well.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
