Marsha Moment Message: I woke up this morning with YOU on My Spirit and felt the need to SHARE these few words. Facebook uses the “term” FRIEND to describe our social connection and it truly works for me. Why? Because YOU continue to SUPPORT Me, My Work and My H.U.G.S. Movement Campaign with Your Words of ENCOURAGEMENT and LOVE from all Over the WORLD. I’m Busy – No Doubt – but, I take the time to READ EVERY SINGLE MESSAGE that Comes Through My Social Pages and although sometimes all I can do is “LIKE” Your Comments – Each Time You Say Something – Anything at All – It Touches MY SPIRIT in a VERY SPECIAL WAY. So, from the Bottom of My Heart – I just want to say – “THANKS FOR BEING MY FRIEND.” Come On Now…Let’s Roll. Much Love, today and always…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: As I come out on the other side, I FEEL the need to “Humbly” SHARE One of My VITAL LIFE LESSONS with YOU. The Lesson is: “FIRST LOVE YOURSELF – F.L.Y.” It is my personal experience that whenever I forget to PRACTICE this Lesson, Pain Soon Follows and I am FORCED to Re-evaluate Where I Have Positioned Myself in My Own Life. HMMM?? Well, the LOVE ME FIRST BUTTON has been hit, AGAIN. (it’s OK some lessons take time to learn – smile) Trust and Believe – I GET IT and I Am Committed to EMBRACING THIS LESSON WITH ALL MY HEART!!

Marsha Moment Message: OK, YES – I am in the middle of getting my arms around “DOORS.” What the Heck is Marsha talking about?? Well, My Spiritual Advisor, for over 25 years, laces her conversations with me around the “DOORS” metaphor. And, I DIDN’T Get It – Today I DO!! Stick With Me for a Minute – I NEED TO SHARE (smile). Here goes: I have gone through the SAME DOORS IN TWO AREAS OF MY LIFE – OVER and OVER AGAIN FOR YEARS – concerning My Intimate Relationships and Financial Manageability. As of Today – LESSONS LEARNED and I am FREE from doing the same thing and expecting different results in those TWO AREAS OF MY LIFE!! Bottomline: THOSE DOORS ARE NOW CLOSED and I am Now PREPARED to GO THROUGH NEW DOORS, with FAITH leading the way, that are DESIGNED to ENHANCE MY SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING and LIFE!! I ENCOURAGE You to JOIN Me in MOVING “TOWARDS” AND “THROUGH” YOUR NEW DOORS. The Same FREEDOM that I am EXPERIENCING is WAITING FOR YOU TO ARRIVE (smile). Trust and Believe, It Feels So GOOD TO BE FREE!! Come On Now…Let’s Roll. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: I have OBSERVED and It has been My “Humble” EXPERIENCE that putting in the Effort to “OPEN DOORS FOR OTHERS” – PRESENTS WIDE OPEN DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY FOR ONESELF!! Trust and Believe – Small Acts of Kindness Are Spiritually Refreshing and the Rewards Are PRICELESS!! It’s KARMA, Baby, KARMA (smile). Come On Now…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset.” Much Love…MarshaHUGS
