Chapter 3, Page 25, Book 15

A hug delights and warms and charms,
that must be why God gave us arms.

March 25th - loving arms

I read a story that was about the very bashful young man who was hesitant about demonstrating his affection for his sweetheart. 

Oh, but that I were an octopus, he said one night, that I might wrap all eight arms around you. His impatient sweetheart replied, 

Don't worry about having eight arms. Just make better use of the two arms you already have.

 That is what we must do in doing in our daily life,  making the best use of what we have.

If you don’t do all you can with this day, the time will come when you’ll desperately wish you had. So go ahead and grab the opportunity while it’s here. Your best possibilities are well within reach. Touch them, work for them, live them, and transform them into reality.

Ralph Marston

A wise man once said you have enough. So use what you have.
Hugs sent from Florida. A cool day, but nice.

Hi Ma.
I love words; always have. A few can say so much, like the ones in your story about the arms. Too often we wish for more when what we have in more than enough. I love that story ..won't forget it.
Hope your day is a really special one.
Love you much.

Now that is wise advice, to make the best use of what we have because we all do have great gifts and talents God gave us!



Your advice about "making the best use of what we have", rings true. Ones quality of life depends on it.
