A Hug for Everyone

ZWANI.com - The place for myspace comments, glitters, graphics, backgrounds and codes
(and all weekend long)

Ornery's Wife at Thoughts From Miller Manor recently celebrated her 1st Blogoversary and signed off with a link to this HUG. I couldn't resist passing it along today. Enjoy and pass it along ;--)

In addition, she passed along a nifty award created especially for her by Nap Warden and offered to to others to enjoy and pass along to our thoughtful commentators, so I've 'snagged' a copy to share with all who pass this way and leave me 'thoughtful' comments too ;--)

Good to see you back again. It's been a while since you've shown up in my reader. :)

I agree with Buscaglia, btw.

storyteller said...

Chani - Nice to see YOU too ;--)
I don't know why I'm not showing up in your reader because I've posted here about three times each week for the past few weeks ... and still daily at Small Reflections. I've not had much time for 'blog visits' but I'm hoping to remedy that today once I finish posting.

Looks like you stopped by while I was addding 'links' to this post ... so maybe (if you remembered to check the little box to receive follow up comments) you'll check back to see what you've missed (or not). The hardest part of all of this for me is trying to keep up with everyone on a regular basis.

Hope all's well with you and yours. I hope you 'snagged' the award to enjoy and pass along. There are lots other I've shared recently too ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I've enjoyed visiting both of your blogs today. Thanks for the award. I will be sure to pass it along to others.

Hope all is well in your part of the country. I was going to do some gardening with the boys today but just after they got here, Jordan became ill, so no gardening took place.

I'm anxious to get out in the garden and get things prepared for spring planting next month.


Karen said...

Oh thank you, I need a hug! Nathan is still sick and it's impossible to do anything--not to mention the pervading sense of anxiety I'm feeling, 'cos my baby is under the weather.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Mike Golch said...

Thanks for the hug.I have a bear hug on my site and any time you want it to use please fell free to come on down and grab if. By the way I'm swipeing the snoopy hug to use.

Joyce said...

I loved the Free Hug video. It made me cry, because it was so sweet. The policeman receiving the free hug was cute. :) Thank you, Storyteller, for sharing that sweet story. :)

Mary – I’m glad you were able to visit and you’re quite welcome for the award. I’m sure you’ll find other deserving recipients as you share at your Writing Nook. All’s well here in So Cal, in fact I’m going to the theater and dinner later with my Red Hat ‘sisters’ … but trying to get a bit of blogging in first.

Karen – You’re ever so welcome! I hope Nathan feels better soon and that all of you enjoy your company!

Mike – I’ll have to check that out when next I visit. You’re welcome to the award and the Snoopy ;--)

Joyce – You’re the first to mention the video, but I’ve watched it multiple times myself and find it touching every time. I’m happy you like it too ;--)

I appreciate each of you visiting and sharing your thoughts here. Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and blessings,

Mike Golch said...

Storyteller,I have posted a different version of free hugs on my site.when I saw the ones I posted on my site I just had to,especially after putting up a link for people to see this version that you have up.

storyteller said...

Yertle – Wow … it was totally NEW to me when I found it at Ornery’s. Guess I’m behind the times, but I’ve watched it many times since finding it and may add it to my sidebar along with other favorites ;--)

Mike – I’m happy to get you back here to view the video. I knew you’d love it given the kinds of videos you share at Rambling Stuff. I’ll be over to see the version YOU found in a little while … and thanks for the linky-love.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week filled with lotsa HUGS given and received!!!
Hugs and blessings,

Melli said...

Thanks for coming by today! You are MORE than welcome to snatch the Watch Your... button. I made the button - but the words are not mine! I actually found them on a poster at one of the schools I used to sub at! I just liked them and wanted them on my blog. I think it would be GREAT for you to share them as well! :)

Unknown said...

Oh hugs are magnificent! How did you know I needed one? :)

storyteller said...

Melli – The visit to your blog was my pleasure for sure. Thanks for granting ‘permission’ for me to use the button. I’ll probably post it here later today … and possibly add it to Small Reflections too.

Lisa Marie – Ah, that’s simple … we ALL need HUGS daily ;--)

I appreciate each of you visiting and sharing your thoughts yesterday and hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday today!!!
Hugs and blessings,
