I will not play at tug o' war I'd rather play at hug o' war, Where everyone hugs Instead of tugs.... ~Shel Silverstein -american poet
Hugs are meant to be everywhere that we can see. A hug a kiss, a little smile will help the love grow a mile, there is a chance that we can be, love and joy for us to see, if we simply try to be, the answer to a dream – Deborahmills © 2018
This is a good mantra to have. Many an argument, a disagreement is defused by hugs. A child's pain, our own pain can be healed quickly by a hug, a kiss on the booboo. Sometimes the pain from a bump, a bruise is real, but sometimes it's the fear,the doubt, the SURPRISE about the bang up, then actual pain. Recently my grandson bumped his head on a marble counter, he cried, a goose egg rose up quickly so we hugged him, kissed him, iced it with an Elmo ice bag, so soon he was smiling. He loved the hugs and kisses so much that he milked it for a long time, anything he didn't want to do he couldn't do because he had " A goose in his head". Later we looked down at the lake where a flock of geese had settled down on their way North for the summer, and as they flew away because a family came up trying to feed them, I said, there goes the goose in your head flying away with his flock. He dropped the "goose in his head", but the need for hugs and kisses remained. We are no different. The pain, the bumps, the bangs may be going away but truthfully our need for hugs, kisses, kind, gentle words never goes away. This desire need doesn't leave our spirit or the spirit of our loved ones, our family, our co=workers. Sometimes the very person who is the loudest, meanest, most troublesome person we know needs the hugs, the kind words the most. I know, I know, but Deb, he/she did.....We see this all the time . I realize the person who is cussing, angry, yelling, is the person who needs our prayers, our love the most. NOW ThAT being said, this doesn't mean we need to take abuse. These are also the people who need boundaries, lines, a blunt, we don't accept this type of treatment, when we can talk in a much better way we'll talk again. Just as my grandson when he needed to put his pjs on but couldn't because "his goose in his head hurt" we insisted that we would have to endure is for a minute while we got them on. Boundaries, structure with love, gentleness rather than tugging this person to see it our way, we love them to it. animal totem: In Tennessee when walking outdoors, everyday we hear the whippoorwill calling out in the distance. It almost seems like as with many we share with everyday, his lonely voice is drawing us to send him love. from spiritsway: Whippoorwill's nocturnal nature teaches the art of night time movements and camouflage. The art of invisibility may be utilized when he appears. Heightened senses may be activated at twilight, dawn with special emphasis on moonlit nights. It is time to adjust your cycle to correspond to the lunar one. Pay attention to the cycles and themes you are experiencing around the moon phases. It is time to listen to sounds in the spiritual realm and in your surroundings. Whippoorwill shows how to adapt to this new phase
