Tuesday's Tribute: Hugs


Join the Tuesday Tribute fun over at Angie's 7 Clown Circus!

My Tuesday's Tribute is dedicated to hugs.

I could really use one (or 100) today...If you need one too, here you go....

{{{{{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}}}}

I love hugging my kids....we hug alot around these parts....I love hugging Shadow and Gordie, our ornery pets....I love hugging my family....I love hugging my pillow when I sleep....Catherine always has her arms wrapped around bears, unicorns, Fancy Nancy and about 20 various soft squishy friends each night.
Tween Caveboy hugs his video game controller...hee hee hee...

Hugs mean so many things...hello, goodbye, congratulations....they are better than a bandaid when you're hurt....they lift your spirits...they connect you with the human race....

I know this has been around the land of Blog for a while, but it really does speak volumes about the power of such a simple yet deeply meaningful gesture...the hug....It's about 3 minutes, but it's a touching, heartwarming, moving 3 minutes.... (thanks to Ann at Ann Again...and Again for sharing this a while back..it really touched me!)



Go rock your {{{HUG}}} power today! Spread the hug love all over the place!

xoxo,
Dawn

I'm all about the hugs. I love to hug and be hugged. I think if we all hugged each other every day the world would be a better place.

I'm a hugger. I have a friend who doesn't have an affectionate family, so she doesn't like to be hugged.

Hugs are amazingly powerful, arent' they? I remember reading about the hug thing in Europe a few years ago and thinking it was so cool.

Sending you a huge cyber hug! :)

Great post. So simple that they are hardly thought of, but so important! {{hugs}} to you!
Didn't have many hugs growing up, so I make sure to have double as much with my kids now that I'm a mom.

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)


A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
