HUGS DO A WORLD OF GOOD

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

HUGS
My mother gave me this years ago. I love it and when I was going through some papers I found it.
She used to come down to visit me 3 or 4 months a year during the winter and we enjoyed each other so much.
Her favorite thing to do down here was to go to the farmer's market. She bought fruit and veggies and took some to a neighbor. This is what she did when we were kids and we grew a garden. Her only outing was to go down the road to a neighbor's
to take them produce.
My mother didn't give many hugs until she got older but she did give a lot of love.
One day she told me "You never hug me". That was when I was grown and she was in a nursing home. I told her I was not brought up to hug. I started hugging her each time I went North. I love hugs.
emoticon

Now here is the poem she gave me on emoticon

It's wondrous what a hug can do. A hug can cheer you when you're blue.
A hug can say "I love you so" or "Gee I hate to see you go."
A hug is "Welcome back again!" and "Great to see you! or "Where've you been?"
A hug can sooth a small child's pain, and bring a rainbow after rain.
The Hug! There's just no doubt about it, we scarcely could live without it.
A hug delights and warms and charms, it must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers, sweet for sisters, swell for brothers
And chances are some favorite aunts love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them. Puppies love them, Heads of state are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier and make the dullest day seem merrier.
No need to fret about the store of 'em, the more you give, the more there are of 'em.
So stretch those arms without delay and give someone a hug today.

Author unknown.

I send my Spark friends lots of

    Not raised a hugger either, but started with my children and then as an Amway distributor. What a wonderful group.

Hugs are wonderful and here is on for you! (((( emoticon)))))

    A similar thing happened to me. I wasn't raised to hug or give kisses, but I married into a family of huggers and became one myself which I passed back to my mom, dad and siblings and now most of them (well, my mom and dad are in heaven now) are huggers too! Thanks for sharing.

  Yes, we need physical hugs and we need to be touched and they have proven that in certain studies with babies who thrived with hugs and physical contact compared to others that had none.

Just like plants that thrive and grow when talked to with positive thoughts and peaceful voices of love.

Physical hugs and spiritual hugs keep us thriving and walking in love at all times.

Irene this is such a great blog and I really appreciate this because this is a reminder to take time to hug. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the poem Irene! I went and hugged all four of my children as soon as I read it. My mother and I are very close and make sure to give each other a big hug every time we see each other. I have also told my husband that his hug in the morning and hug when he gets home and hug before bed are my very favorite times of day. Hugs heal the soul in a way that words just can't. I think it has to do with the personal contact. Touch is so important! Hugs to you Irene!

AN URGENT READ

Saturday, June 23, 2012

From Max Lucado

It’s estimated our bodies are 80% fluid. Apart from brains, bones, and a few organs, we’re walking water balloons!

Stop drinking water and see what happens. Coherent thoughts vanish. Skin gets clammy, and vital organs wrinkle.

Eyes need fluid to cry. Your mouth needs moisture to swallow and your joints need fluid to stay lubricated. Your body needs water the same way tires need air!

God wired you with thirst–a “low-fluid indicator.” Let your fluid level grow low, and watch the signals flare. Dry mouth. Achy head. Weak knees. Deprive your body of fluid and your body will tell you. Deprive your soul of spiritual water, and your soul will tell you.

Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages: Snarling tempers. Waves of worry.

Jesus said, “if anyone thirsts let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water! John 4:14″

From Come Thirsty

    Drinking water has never been a problem for me -its my number one beverage, in fact its pretty much all I drink -get some 20 cups a day on average -you need more if you workout as hard as I do. I recently heard on the radio and read an article saying you didn't even need the eight cups a day -that you get all your fluid from everything you eat and drink, so all that coffee and pop were okay!! Unfortunately, my brother, who drinks NOTHING but diet Coke, heard that article on the radio and is now smirking he gets enough fluids -he drinks his precious pop by the gallons a day. Was a very damaging article, thanks Australia, for putting that out there :(
Nothing is more thirst quenching and refreshing then water!!

DIET FACTS

A diet is a weigh of life.

It's not the minutes spent at the table that put on weight, it's the seconds.

It's something most of us do religiously: We eat what we want and pray we don't gain weight.

The problem with curbing our appetites is that most of us do it at the drive in window of McDonalds.

The most fattening thing you can put in an ice cream sundae is a spoon.

The biggest drawback to fasting for seven days is that it makes on weak.

Sweets are the destiny that shapes our ends.

Diets are for people who are thick and tired of it.

The toughest part of a diet isn't watching what you eat. It's watching what other people eat.

Diets are for women who not only kept their girlish figure but doubled it.

(Something else found among my papers but don't know where I got it from)

Hope you have a good emoticonand can emoticonall day long.

Have a good weak, I mean week, end all.

I love the play on words.

Irene

THIS IS HILARIOUS

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Today I found this among some papers I was cleaning out. I don't know where it came from but it is so emoticon emoticonI just had to print it and send it on. Do you need a emoticontoday?
My idea: It is hilarious but if you want to lose weight, have a positive outlook on life and get healthy, read it for the laugh as laughter doeth good like a medicine but don't follow them

Here it is.

RANDOM THOUGHTS FROM A WOMAN

1. Reason to smile: Every 7 minutes of every day, someone in an aerobics class pulls a hamstring.

2. Women over 50 don't have babies because they would put them down and forget where they left them.

3. One of life's mysteries is how a 2 pound box of candy can make a woman gain 5 pounds.

4. My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.

5. The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight shoes.

6. The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don't know what you're doing, someone else does.

7. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then your body and your fat are really good friends.

8. Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.

9. Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness

10 I gave up jogging for my health when my thighs kept rubbing together and setting my pantyhose on fire.

11. Amazing! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks two sizes.

12. Skinny people irritate me! Especially when they say things like, "You know sometimes I just forgot to eat," Now I've forgotten my address, my mother's maiden name, and my keys. But I've never forgotten to eat. You have to be a special kind of stupid to forget to eat.

13. A friend of mine confused her Valium with her birth control pills. She had 14 kid, but she doesn't really care.

14. They keep telling us to get in touch with our bodies. Mine isn't all that communicative but I heard from it the other day after I said, "Body, how'd you like to go to the six o'clock class in vigorous toning?" Clear as bell my body said, "Listen witch...do it and die."

15. The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing (and then they marry him.)

16. I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That is my idea of a perfect day.

17. I know what Victoria's Secret is. The secret is that nobody older than 30 can fit into their stuff.

18. If men can run the world, why can't they stop wearing neckties? How intelligent is it to start the day by tying a noose around your neck.

MY DAYS

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Most of you know by now emoticonwhy I have been MIA.
I told you that my PT would be over this week but I have another week so have two more sessions mainly for my balance then the head of the group comes out and does a check up and finds out how I did.
Then the nurse will come the week after that.
Today the house cleaner came, then I went to the emoticondoctor for a shot and home for the PT
Plan to watch duets tonight. Some of them are really good.
Thursday go back to the lawyer to finish up there.
Friday is my get beautiful day then to lunch with my friends who live close to the beauty shop.

Much paper work still awaits me which will take a long time. Also need to clean out my closets.
Not all in one day or one week. emoticon

So much to do and time flies. Never wish your life away. Enjoy every day of your life. It goes by too fast and enjoy your loved ones while you still have them. Take care of yourself. Be healthy. They always said healthy, wealthy and wise. I think healthy is great and wise is great but I have never been wealthy and don't need to be.

God bless all of you.

    Very nice blog, Irene.

We all must prepare, in so many ways and also live life to the fullest.

God's gifts abound!

I took a wonderful balance class, with my Caregiver group. Learned so much, that we all should be doing, as well as things that I can pass on to Hubby and my mother.
Hopefully your PT will help.

It is a blessing to know you. Thank you for your uplifting words and constant encouragement.

You are the daughter of the King of Glory our Abba Daddy Father God and you belong to the royal family of heaven and our most glorious brother by adaption is Jesus what more could you ever want for?

You are wealthy, healthy and wise beyond any earthly measure. What you have is the treasures of heaven for you only and your hearts desires.

He has special treasures with your name Irene on them, and then you will be given a new name in heaven.

Doesn't this sound so exciting? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    yes you have been wealthy and still are you are wealthy in God and in knowledge, it does not say wealthy in money, something a lot of people automatically assume, our riches are in Heaven, we have no use for earthly riches, but we do have use for the wealth God bestows on us with his love and his truths in his book the Bible.
Take care my dear friend

    Well there is more than one way to count your wealth.
The blessings of good health, good friends and love of your family and friends is the best "wealth" of all.
