Open Arms

Day 23~

There’s nothing like being in the arms of a loved one….. or being the arms that are loving another!

I’m so grateful for my arms.  I’m grateful I can hold my loved ones with them. I use them to carry so many things and do so many things.  I already posted about my hands, but really, without my arms it would be hard to do all I do with my hands!hugs and arms

Let’s see…. let’s think of some of the things we do everyday using our arms (and hands, since they are attached).  Push ourselves up out of a chair, help ourselves with bathroom needs, get ready for the day, cook, clean, play piano, drive, exercise, play sports, crafting, creating, gardening, typing, working, serving…… I could obviously go on!  We all use our arms and hands for different things, so the list could be extensive.  Point being…… that we use them pretty much every hour of every day!

But for me, probably one of the most rewarding and satisfying ways to use my arms is to love someone.  Hugging my husband, holding my grandbaby…. those are some of the things that mean the most in life!

This is the time of year when most of us are blessed to spend time with family and friends.  A time to be thankful for them and a time to use our arms to hug them!

Let’s show some gratitude for our arms and see how many hugs we can give this Thanksgiving week!

I Am Grateful!  How Are You?
