Spark of Hope #2 – When my husband and I first got married, it took him awhile to get in sync with my hugs: hug before you go out the door and when you come back in; hug before you go to sleep and when you wake up; and anytime in between when the need arises! After my children were grown, they told me they had even “briefed” their dates about the importance of a good hug with their Mom. The importance of sharing hugs has been magnified as I’ve traveled to share the hope inside my Little Pink Books and Little Patriot Books. I quickly realized that hugs’ importance is far beyond my family & friends.
I sign my books prefaced with “hugs.” Then, I offer a hug to the person getting the book—and I’ve never been turned down. In fact, sometimes I have to be the one to let go first! My emails are signed with “Hugs.” Now I get emails back signed “hugs,” and magnified hugs such as “Big Tennessee Hugs.” It’s contagious! You can even put one in your text messages: (((H))). Hugs are a wonderful spark of hope. Share that spark today!
Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. Tucked inside each of us is a child-like spark that says: never forget to dream, play and imagine. I hope my one-minute stories will make a difference in your life. I also hope that they inspire you to dream, play and imagine—for the possibilities are endless. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday! ©2011
