There's something in a simple hug that always warms
the heart. It welcomes us back home and makes it easier
to part. A hug's a way to share the joy, and the sad
times we go through, or just a way for friends to say
they like you because you're you. Hugs are meant for
anyone for whom we really care. From your Grandma to
your neighbor, or a cuddly teddy bear. A hug is an amazing
thing -- it's just the perfect way to show the love we're
feeling but can't find the words to say. It's funny how

and language, it's always understood. And hugs don't
need new equipment, special batteries or parts -- just
open up your arms and open up your heart....Unknown.

Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one's heart
to a dear friend. People who have no secrets from each other
never want for subjects of conversation; they do not weigh their
words, because there is nothing to be kept back. Neither do they
seek for something to say; they talk out of the abundance of their
hearts, just what they think. Blessed are they who attain such
familiar, unreserved communication with God....Francois Fénelon.

Peace is a deep disposition of the heart. It is humility, an ability
to let go of the need to be right in our own eyes or the eyes of others,

neighbor. The peace that comes with claiming our self in God is the
foundation of our ability to carry God's reconciling love to others in
the most humble places and humble everyday ways....Roberta C. Bondi.

children of chance, and none can say why some fields will

And give. Give in any way you can, of whatever you possess.
To give is to love. To withhold is to wither. Care less for
your harvest than for how it is shared, and your life will
have meaning and your heart will have peace....Kent Nerburn.

The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is
frail and easily broken, but wonderfully resilient.
There is no point in trying to deceive the heart.

precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
and cause peace to return to our hearts....Washington Irving.

and hopeless but her superiors felt that she was too frail,
young, and inexperienced. She pleaded her case, but they
