Clearing out


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....


Thank you Sara

Nice encouraging little verse. I cleaned a handbag out the other day to find a pretty writing pen with my name on it that my daughter had given me months ago. I couldn't imagine where I had lost it that someone didn't find it and return it to me with my name on it. It was in the lining. Had slipped through a tiny hole I didn't know was there. I was so happy to find it as I know you were to find the poem. Paula

I love that....a couple of weeks ago I opened up one of my suitcases that I normally take with up to visit the Grandbabies and I found a small treasure,  a hand drawn heart by the oldest girl, with the saying "For Grandma Sandi...I love you...Britt" that little piece of paper cheered me up for days.  It now has a place of love on my fridge....Sandi
