Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Hugs & Cuddles

http://awakenings2012.blogspot.com/2016/09/are-you-hungry-hungry-for-schnitzel.html for foodie fun!

Think back on days of your childhood. Most (notice not all) children grow up with their own special 'teddy' - meaning, of course, a teddy bear. This source of love and comfort often times becomes a BFF (best friend forever) offering calmness and warmth within the best hugs ever. The teddy bear is all about sharing and caring, which is why you are invited to a dual celebration.


September 9 is...
National Teddy Bear Day

Origin of the Teddy Bear
For many, that first bear will always be close at heart whose fluffy fur became rather frazzled from innumerable hugs and cuddlings. Perhaps that special bear is a friend to this day lying in wait for that goodnight hug or one just as special having been received as a gift at some point in time through the years. In either case, the delightful sensation of comfort and cheer is a warm association with that furry little friend, especially when apart from friends and family. Teddy also presents the perfect excuse to want to give someone a hug! So, why not pass along numerous loving teddy bear hugs much the same as on Teddy Bear Picnic Day.

Each time you feel the least bit disgruntled think about a teddy bear and smile...a B-I-I-I-G smile. If you happen to have one close at hand, maybe even grab him by the arm and give him a B-I-I-I-G squeeze! He may not be able to smile back but his presence will surely warm your heart making you feel better instantly! Of course, as you go through your daily routines, look for all the human 'teddies' just waiting for a hug. Everyone knows bear hugs are a source of love and comfort. You just may make someone's day!


Have a 'bear'-ry good day and...
