I was clearing out an old handbag to day - I found lots of odds and ends - an old gold bracelet with charms on ......A blood Donars card...old photographs, some premium bonds (Which to my knowlege have never won anything) must check them out....
I did find the following little verse tucked away in one corner of a pocket....I had cut it from a magazine many moons ago.
Just thought you might like to share it:-
"Hug me Better"
had just had some medical treatment
and was feeling a bit low when my granddaughter sent me a
small gingham 'Survival sack' inside was one birthday candle
one length of string - a glass marble - one penny - one eraser -
and one cardboard heart with HUG written in the centre.
this verse was attached to the heart.
We all have those days
When we feel a bit blue
but this bag contains things
to help see you through
an eraser to rub out
mistakes with one swipe
A candle to light up the gloomist night
cash when you feel that
your backs to the wall
a marble to make sure
you don't loose them all
string to stop everything falling apart
and a Hug full of warmth that come
straight from the heart.
It certainly cheered me up

It cheered me up too....
