Chapter 11, Page 9, Book 18

Our affections are our life.  We live by them; they supply our warmth.

William Ellery Channing

Today I’m thankful for warmth

The hearts that love will know never winter’s frost and chill, summer’s warmth is in them still.

Eben Eugene Redford

We all need love and affection.  That warm feeling that a hug gives just cannot be replaced.  It makes you feel safe and secure.  And believe me when I say, a little warmth can go a long way.

Some travel south for the winter for warmth, but I never had the opportunity, still in northern  Ohio, even on the coldest day, there is a lot of warmth to be found.  

All the statistics in the world can’t measure the warmth of a smile.

Chris Hart

A smile, a hug, a complement, or a kind word, can warm my heart just like the rays of sunshine beaming through the clouds on a chilly day. I have a sun porch with windows on 3 sides where I’ll often look for a sun puddle to sit in.  Sunshine on my shoulders always makes me happy. I love to feel sun on my shoulders, but that feeling doesn’t compare to the warmth of a kindness shared.

The light is what guides you home, the warmth is what keeps you there.

On my thankful list for today:

6505. for freedom
6506. for something to do
6507. for a good cup of Holiday Blend coffee to start the day

The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.

Oscar Wilde

Warmth of the heart. I was fortunate to be raised in a family where my mama had enough warmth to heat a home. I wish everyone could know that warmth. I know your family did. The best of all worlds is the warmth from within. Coming South for warmth would be useless without a glowing inner warmth.

So true that warmth can be found in more things than just the heat of the sun or the heater. Its always good to be around people that have a warm personality and exude it with frequent hugs and words of encouragement.

Yes, you definitely 'get' it! Warmth is certainly more than a thermal setting. I enjoy how you've lent definition to the many ways!
