Once upon a time, there used to be this tradition of connecting together by placing arms around another. They called this tradition ‘hugs’. Hugs were special in they told so much without saying one word. Alas, we do have hope to one day return to the hug custom. Until then please take this short story as my hug across the globe to you….by Pauline Harris

Hugs to my Friends

Here is to you, my friends. To those who have cared, To those who have shared, To those who inspired, To those who persevered, I send to you a healing hug and a sparkling smile. And some love to carry on….

We don’t know what tomorrow brings. All we know is here and now. We have each other Through thick and thin. Thank you dear ones. by Pauline Harris

The Hug

The Hug
by Pauline Harris

Time had seemed
To drag on and on
Stress from all about
Nothing seemed calming
Until out of nowhere
Came this touch
And then embrace
The hug I so desperately
Wanted and needed
Showed up to hold me
Close at the heart
And seem to take all
That anxiousness away
Along with uneasiness
Thank you for the hug
Gratefulness for a friend
Who cares as much as you
And yes, I know the hug
Was good for you as well
As the smile rose upon
Your loving face with grace

Grateful for Hugs

I am grateful for love shared
To help others know we cared

I am grateful for joy
In knowing we can enjoy
The joyney through life

Thanks to those hugs
Much needed at times
But coming aware of love
Is giving the care we all need

by Pauline Harris

Cuddle Up In Love

Cuddle Up in Love 
A blanket of love
Wraps around each of us
Warming our hearts
With peace and joy
As we each take to the day
Our giving attitudes 
Forwarding love all around
Allowing Spirit to guide us
Towards sharing love
As we go about living today
By Pauline Harris


sometimes we need to
just take a minute
and forget about the
work and politics
and remember who
matters most
those in our lives
our friends
our family
those strangers with
smiles on their faces
all sharing just
a piece of themselves
with each other
which makes life 


❤ hugs ❤

Sometimes changes in our lives happen slowly over time…

and other times, we have changes that happen within an instant…

Change is part of our everyday lives…

sometimes we are given clues/tools on how to deal

with change and other times we rely on what we already know,

our friends/family and sometimes even society as a whole.

Some may just carry on(bugger on)…

some may just sit and let life go on…

and some may run and try to make more changes.

In each situation of change,

it is comforting to know change is inevitable,

change is constant.

It is also nice when the sun rises for a new day.~pharris2013

Tidbits of Unconditional Hugs

Sharing a little light
Sharing a healing hug
Sharing a sparkling smile

Sharing some love
And blessings to all

Sharing a glimpse of light
A smile and hug
Healing presence
Safe travels 
Blessings always

Encourage Someone Today…Give a Smile…Be Sincerely You while uplifting another…Say a Prayer…Warm a Heart…Be available…Listen

Just a tiny hug
From me to you
Not much, but a lot
Of loving thoughts
No words could convey
The shared kindness
I wish for the world
This very day and always
By Pauline Harris
