It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 3, Page 14, 2021



If you’re angry at a loved one, hug that person.  And mean it.  You may not want to hug - which is all the more reason to do so It’s hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that’s precisely what happens when we hug each other.

March 14th - Thankful Sunday!



Some moments can only e cured with a big squishy grandma hug.

I’m so thankful that this week I’ve been able to give and get more hugs.  After a year of keeping our distance, it’s now safe for me to give and get more hugs.  I love getting them and getting them.

Thanks to the vaccine for the Covoid 19 virus, it’s safe for me to unite with others again.  It’s a very liberating feeling.  I haven’t felt this safe in a long long time!  After being locked down for a year now we also celebrated a one year anniversary with a plan for recovery for our country!

I’m thankful for our government providing funds to make sure the plan goes ahead and they say by May this year everyone should be able to receive the vaccine.  

I didn’t have to pay anything for this vaccine but I’m sure somewhere along the line, the taxes I pay will benefit this funding.  We get what we give.

I’m thankful that I no longer have to pay any taxes but I used to work and they came out of every pay check.  Sooner or later we all benefit from this.  I paid into the Social Security Fund and that is what I’m now living on.

I’m thankful that I have everything I need and more.  Not a day goes by that I’m thankful for the fact that I could work towards retirement. It was a goal worth striving for.  

I’m also thankful that more and more of my family are getting the vaccine and cannot wait till it’s available for the children too.  There have been no new cases of the virus in my family.  Everyone is safe and healthy and survived the pandemoniac.

It’s such a wonderful time to be living and I’m feeling full of hope for future.  If things continue to go well , I may soon be able to see some of my out of state family too.

Some travel restrictions are lifting for those that have the vaccine.  We’ll hopefully soon be back to normal again.  I’ll never take anyone or anything for granted again.



Hugs feel good even when they come from strangers. Ergo, we should all be hugging more.

I'm so happy to hear things are getting back to normal for you and your family! I can't wait to get my hugs in again too!

Because we've not had our 2nd shots, we're still being careful ... but like Martha wrote, I can't wait! Because SS is our only income source, I think we won't need to file a return, but will double check, if for no other reason than, "I told you so!" (*grin*)

Wish I could hug all of my blog buddies. I am so looking forward to seeing my dear friends who've had second shots (plus two weeks) and exchanging hugs. So grateful for all you've listed and adding my anticipation for celebrating Passover in person in two weeks!
