#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 71: HUG - My mom inspired this post. I was looking through an old box for my high school senior album and a letter fell out that my mom (Billie) had written her mom (Faith... my grandmother) April 28th, 1987. I stopped and read it and it lit up my heart, turned on a few tears, and reminded me how precious life and relationships are. Mothers are so special. Here are two poignant excerpts from my moms letter to her mom. "Just wanted to let you know how much I love you and Terrie. I don't hug you or Terrie enough. I don't know why, except that sometimes I think that you'll always be there. Well, next time we see each other, I'm going to hug you real tight. Thanks for giving and helping me develop the spirit and openness I feel towards life. A little rusty at times, but in the rough of the ocean of life, believe me, I will always pull through, because of the spirit to survive you have instilled in me, and the vision to see ahead and feel hope, faith and charity. YOU are so special and I love you dearly and eternally.” Your daughter (lucky) @Billie Rodrigue.
Next time.... don't rush, don't take for granted, lean in, and hug a little longer. Human touch is good for the soul. Pause and consider new possibilities for your life.
