Hugs and Kisses

Valentine's Day has past.  Nonetheless, today has been filled with hugs and kisses. 
As I take the time to think about it, praise the Lord, most of my days are filled with hugs and kisses.

This morning E-Bear and G-Bear jumped on my bed and hugged me to wake me up.
T had a kiss for each of us as he walked out the door to work.
Baby Bear was smothered with sibling hugs as he waited his turn to be dressed.
G-Bear and E-Bear gave me hugs and kisses in the car as we hopped out at school.
Everyone got hugs as we said our goodbyes at our classroom doors.
Daddy got hello hugs from all of us when he joined us for a special lunch.
Baby Bear got hugs and kisses as I carried him off for his nap.
He was smothered in sibling kisses again when he woke up.
I got lots of mid-bite hugs and kisses from G-Bear, sitting next to me during dinner.
Finally came the hair-brushing hugs, the story time snuggles and the goodnight kisses.
"I love my mommy," said my Bears.
And T always kisses me goodnight.

There are always so many things trying to worry, annoy, and bother me.
The difference today?  
I chose to notice the hugs and kisses of my everyday life.
And I remembered that the biggest hug of all is from our Father God.

Dear Betsy,
Here's something I admire about you: you try to focus on gratitude and see blessings. This is not easy for any of us, but when you have a life as busy and demanding as yours it becomes quite an accomplishment. Thanks for the reminder.
Love, Bette
