tuesday's healing word challenge

“The challenge is to turn midnight into days, pain into power.

If you’re swimming, and there’s a stiff wind and a vicious storm coming,

you can’t stop swimming and explain the storm away.

You’ve got to keep kicking.”

~Jesse Jackson

hug healing word

Hug:  Act of holding someone (self) in one’s arms, typically to express compassion, affection or joy.

you get it back right away.

hugs are healing

I am a huge fan of hugs and have written blogs on hugging trees, the Spleen hug, and have more planned for future posts. My fondest childhood hugging memories are of my Dad’s healing bear hugs. The most powerful healing cub hugs I received as a young mother was from my three children.  Each one had this special way of hugging me around the neck and at the same time patting my shoulder with one of their small hands.  Lets go out and hug someone (and self) today, it is healing.

Affirmation:  TODAY IS A GOOD DAY FOR A HUG.
