Marsha Moment Message: As I headed to the train this morning I had a moment of “Remembrance” on a LIFE I once Lived – this picture reflects the past I once shared with these Individuals who are depositing for cash cans they’ve collected off the street. NO – I DID NOT COLLECT CANS. That’s a “YET” for Me if I should ever remove Myself from the “HUMBLE POSITION”. I’m no better than anyone else – never that. I just wanted to take this “moment” to SHARE how Grateful I am to have the opportunity to HELP OTHERS and SHARE HUGS and LOVE with YOU. As You go about your days – I ENCOURAGE YOU to remember to SMILE at Someone, Give a PAT on the Back, a Warm Handshake or even a HUG – to let someone else know you ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR EXISTENCE and APPRECIATE THEIR LIFE. PLEASE never ever forget that Things Can Change on a Dime in One’s Life and to Truly Count Our Blessings. Why? Simply: IT JUST DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Come on Now…PUT SOME GRATITUDE IN OUR ATTITUDE…Let’s Roll. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: As many of You know by now, I am a Recovering Alcoholic and Addict with 27 Years Clean from Literally Being a Bum on the Street – Not Expecting Much of Anything to Come of My Life!! I start with this statement because as a Child, My Family had HIGH EXPECTATIONS for Me andthey never ever turned their backs on me. Even when I was a Derelict on the Street they LOVED ME UNCONDITIONALLY – in spite of the Choices that I Made which were Destroying My Life. When I came into the Recovery Process, one of the first things My Sponsor/Spiritual Guide told me to do was to SET SOME GOALS because The God of My Understanding Had Some Stuff He Needed Me to Do on his Behalf. This I did as, I set out to Honor My God – as He Had BLESSED ME with Another Chance at LIFE. Who knew that as a DIRECT RESULT OF EXPECTING MORE FOR MYSELF – I would have the Opportunity to “Encourage, Inspire and Uplift Others Through My Words Actions and Deeds ~ HUGS Mindset”. So, as My Story continues to unfold, I thought I would take this “Moment” to ENCOURAGE YOU to Continue on Your Path and Do All the Things You Ever Wanted and EXPECTED to Do – for YOURSELF and for OTHERS. The God You Honor Has Got You – Show Him That You Know That To be TRUEl!! Come On Now…IF YOU EXPECT MORE – THEN DO MORE…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset.” Much Love… Marsha HUGS

Marsha Moment Message: YES, Life can be this SIMPLE; if we can all just find it in our HEARTS and MINDS to JUST LIVE IT. Sure, we all got stuff going on in our lives – both internally and externally – that systematically attempt to distract us from what’s really important as we go about our days. And, what might that be, MarshaHUGS? Humble Response: The LOVE You inherently have for Yourself and Others (smile). Come On Now…KEEP IT SIMPLE…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: Too many times over the course of this Incredible Journey called LIFE, I truly felt like I had been given a “Bad Hand”; however, what I have come to understand – is the “HAND” that I’ve been dealt – was a WINING HAND FROM THE MOMENT I WAS BORN. It included GOD/HIGHER POWER/SOMETHING GREATER THAN ME, LOVE, HUMILITY, HOPE, FAITH, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, PERSEVERANCE, COMPASSION and MANY OTHER SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES and ATTRIBUTES that truly helped to shape the Woman who is today called “MARSHAHUGS”. Yeah, Money, Property and Prestige is what I was aiming for when I Got the “Bad Hand” I was dealt. Little did I know, MY PERCEPTION and AIM WAS OFF the TRUE MARK that had been designed specifically for ME and the HAND I GOT WAS PERFECT for the LIFE I WOULD LEAD and the REWARDS that would come with it; which includes a sincere desire to be of Service to Others. (smile). Yes, I’m Truly Blessed!! I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE CARDS YOU’VE BEEN DEALT and AIM JUST A LITTLE HIGHER. Come On Now…We’ve Got The Game of Life to Play…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Well, I am going to use this “moment” to express how full I feel this morning as a direct result of being in the company of TWO LEGENDS – Ms Melba Moore and Ms. Dionne Warwick at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY with a host of Appreciative Fans who, like Me, truly Admire and Respect these Iconic Performing Artists. YES, they are Celebrities and have earned all of the accolades they receive; however, just like You and I they are caring individuals who have done there best to give us the best they have through their music which will transcend time. This My Friends is their LEGACY and My “humble” question to you is: What will you leave behind on the hearts and minds of others? What will your LEGACY be? Trust and Believe, we all can contribute to this world with the GIFTS we have been given to share. I ENCOURAGE YOU to tap into what you bring to the table and SHARE IT TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY!! Your PURPOSE in LIFE has already been defined without your permission – Go Ahead and Do What You Do!! Without a doubt – IT MATTERS – YOU MATTER (smile). Come On Now…Let’s Roll.
