Marsha Moment Message: YES, REALLY!! (smile). And, the Opportunity I Experienced Today as a Volunteer at the National Action Network’s 2016 FREE Thanksgiving Dinner reinforced something Very SPECIAL for ME. Here goes: In my “humble” opinion SOME folks have forgotten what to be Thankful For. You’ve heard it – I’m Thankful for my car, my house, my job, my new shoes, my new phone (geez). OK, We Get It. You’re Thankful for the “Stuff” You have and I definitely Ain’t Mad at You. I’m Glad I Got Stuff Too; however, THANKS-FOR-GIVING has the potential to mean so much more. Unfortunately, we have been so conditioned to base what we are Thankful For on “STUFF” – SOME of us forget to be Thankful for that One Special Thing That the God You Honor Has BLESSED You With Without Your Permission: THE ABILITY TO LOVE and BE LOVED!! And, This My Friends Is What I Am Most THANKFUL For. We can always Get and Replace “Stuff”; however, There’s Only One YOU and I am so THANKFUL To Have You In My Life to LOVE and HUG (smile). Come On Now…GO AHEAD – ADD LOVE TO YOUR THANKSGIVING LIST. The Feeling — PRICELESS. Oh, and By the way: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset.” Much Love…MarshaHUGS



Marsha Moment Message: I want to STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU to Send Some LOVE to My Spiritual Brother, Mr. Sebastian A Garces from Footscray, Australia. This IS all I am going to say: Sebastian contacted me in September of this Year after he saw the What Would You Do video segment. Well, I “humbly” share below the first message I received from Sebastian and second one which is the description he has for the Portrait of Me – in his own words – unedited and untouched by me. I am so “humbled” and just so BLESSED. PLEASE SEND SOME LOVE TO SEBASTIAN!! All I can say is this: Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset” – Encourage, Inspire and Uplift Others Through Your Words, Actions and Deeds.” Much Love…MarshaHUGS

SEBASTIAN’S SEPTEMBER 2016 FB MESSAGE TO ME: Hi Marsha my name is Sebastian garces I saw your video and your love was so beautiful I started to cry for only one thing is certain and that is that love will always conquer all as a response I decided to make a portrait of you so when people ask me who you are I can tell them about you and how you responded to racism in the barns shop May god bless your soul

SEBASTIAN’S NOVEMBER 2016 MARSHAHUGS PORTRAIT DESCRIPTION: a social experiment was performed in a barbershop in Harlem New York were a interracial couple were confronted with discrimination. The experiment was o so interesting because it showed the way people reacted and handled the situation when confronted with a issue that unfortunately still exist . Most people shown interfering with the sonario acted with their heart to stand against rascim but one lady shined so ever bright. Her name was marsha hugs . rather than acting with anger she acted with education love and care and as a result she managed to not only stop the situation from escalating but prevent it for happening . this lesson of love has truly touched my heart and has inspired me to make a portrait of marsha hugs for only one thing is certain and that is that love will always conquer all may the lessons form marsha h.u.g.s live with in all hearts”

Marsha Moment Message. I am reaching out specifically to ask with all Sincerity to PLEASE keep Your SPIRITS HIGH. Like many of You in this Country and around the World, I learned that a New President has been elected to run the UNITED States of America. I am not in Agreement with the choice that has been made and it is going to take me a little while to get comfortable with what has happened. In the meantime, I have made a DECISION to Continue to Strive Forward with My – OUR – Message of PEACE, LOVE and HUGS!! I trust that You will JOIN ME and NOT GIVE UP ON US AS A UNITED NATION – UNITED WORLD – regardless of who runs this country. Our Charge – Our Purpose – FAR EXCEEDS THESE WORLDLY EXPERIENCES We Face That Challenge Our Sensibilities. So, let’s not spend an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out WHAT HAPPENED? That is Done. Instead, Let’s STRIVE TO CONTINUE TO LIVE TOGETHER AND RESPECT ONE ANOTHER IN PEACE – NO MATTER WHO – NO MATTER WHAT!! Come On Now…WE ARE THE CHANGE WE SEEK…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: As many of You might have observed, I have offered very little dialogue on the 2016 Presidential Election. Why, MarshaHUGS?? I’m glad You asked? Simply, this year’s election has been Explosive and Extremely Emotional for Thousands of People in this Country. I chose not to Add Fuel to the Fires that have been Burning in Our Nation. Now, my approach in the Future, might very well change; but for now, I’m good with this decision. YES, I have a Very Strong Opinion about the candidate that I would like to see as Our Next President and I trust that my candidate will WIN!! Until we learn who that will be, I would like to take this “Moment” to ask ALL OF YOU TO VOTE AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. That is of Critical Importance Today and That Is Exactly What I Am Going To Do. In my “humble” opinion…as I have said on many occasions: “We Have To Step Up, So, We Don’t Fall Back.” We have EARNED the RIGHT TO VOTE Through the Blood, Sweat and Tears of Millions of People Before Us Who Fought For This Right On Our Behalf. It is OUR Personal Responsibility to Take Voting Seriously. This is Truly One of Those Times FOR EACH OF US IN THIS COUNTRY TO STEP UP!! Regardless, of Who Your Candidate of Choice Is – GO OUT AND VOTE!! Come On Now…YOUR VOICE AND YOUR VOTE COUNTS…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset.” Much Love… MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: I came across this picture and got so Emotional. As I put my head back and thought about why, I realized that ensuring that I had THE RIGHT TO VOTE was one of the reasons why Dr. King was Assassinated and why thousands of others suffered through the brutality of a Misguided Nation through Horrendous Tumultuous Times!! As I share this “Moment” My Spirit REJOICES in knowing that the efforts of those Individuals will not go unheralded or in vain. Not By ME and I am sure not by YOU. I ASK and STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO VOTE to Let Your Voice, the Voice and Legacy of Dr. King and the Persistent Voice of Thousands of People who made Civil Rights a Priority for US – BE HEARD!! Trust and Believe, Each Day Brings Us Closer to Brighter Days Ahead…I BELIEVE!! Come On Now…THE OPTION TO VOTE IS IN YOUR HANDS…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: I woke up this morning and felt this overwhelming need to reach out to My Sisters and Brothers who are “Facing Difficult Times”. I FEEL YOU and I Have Been There Too and Might Be There Again – NO ONE IS EXEMPT. However, I approach You in this ” Moment” in a “humble” position to let let you know, from My Own Personal Experiences, that the GOD You Honor – HAS GOT YOU and WILL SEE YOU THROUGH!! I ENCOURAGE You to just remain STRONG in YOUR FAITH and ALLOW Your SPIRIT to SOAR in Spite of what is attempting to STEAL YOUR JOY. Believe in YOUR HEART – That Your LIFE is In The Hands of a POWER that TRULY LOVES YOU!! With all My Heart, I Trust These Words Give You Some Sense of Comfort. Come On Now…YOU CAN DO THIS…Let’s’ Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: You will notice in My Posts that I constantly remind You to NOT FORGET YOU in the scheme of things. Why is this so important, MarshaHUGS? Well, I’m glad You asked (smile). It has been my experience that on those many occasions when I minimized the IMPORTANCE OF ME – OTHERS DID TOO. That Just Ain’t Kool. And, it took me years to come to this realization. Let me break it down: STOP LOOKING FOR THE BEST FRIEND IN OTHERS – TO FILL THAT WHOLE INSIDE OF YOU. Trust and Believe, YOU ARE NEVER ALONE AS LONG AS YOU GOT YOU. It’s Okay to Give Yourself a KISS, Tell Yourself You Are Special, Give Yourself a HUG, Pat Yourself on the Back, Relish In Your Accomplishments and Put Some Flavor in Your Stride!! Flow with You, Baby and Allow the World to Feel Your Confident, Self-Assured, Positive Energy. Now, check this out: DO ALL OF THIS IN A HUMBLE MANNER!! How do we do that? It’s Not So Hard!! Just PRACTICE Thanking the GOD You Honor for EVERYTHING – The Lessons and The Blessings, the Trials and the Tribulations, and the Ups and the Downs. All You have Experienced and Will Experience, MAKE YOU THE VERY SPECIAL PERSON THAT YOU ARE…PLEASE DON’T FORGET THAT. Come On Now…BE A FRIEND TO YOU – SO THAT YOU NEVER GIVE POWER TO THAT LONELY FEELING AGAIN…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message. I can sometime be so tough on Myself about what I “Could Of – Would Of and Should Of – Done or Not Done”. Come On Now, I know I’m Not Alone. So Can WE Talk? YES? KOOL. Now, We All Got Stuff We Ain’t So Proud Of. That’s Real. However, what matters TODAY IS what YOU ARE DOING NOW – to Enhance the Quality of Your Life and the Lives of Others!! I want to take this “Moment” to ENCOURAGE YOU to NOT Step on Your Greatest because of your PAST, but, instead STEP INTO YOUR GREATEST because of what YOU’VE LEARNED FROM IT. Join Me and Say Out Loud: “TODAY, I GOT IT GOING ON”. (I Can’t Hear You…smile). Come On Now…YOU ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN YOU WERE – BELIEVE THAT…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset”. Much Love…MarshaHUGS

Marsha Moment Message: As some of You may have noticed, I’ve been off the Social Media Grid for a minute. Well, like I am sure You have experienced, there are times when that LOVING Inner Voice says: “STOP”. So, I listened and took the time to think about “What’s Next for MarshaHUGS, MRBInspires and the HUGS Movement?” Well, while doing some planning – it dawned on me that as long as I continue to Produce, Host, Present and Support – Encouraging, Inspiring and Uplifting Projects and People – with Sincere Intent aka “LOVE” – the GOD that I Honor will Take Care of the Results!! How Could I Possibly Go Wrong?? Heck, the Path Has Already Been Cleared. In my “humble” opinion, this FACT is one of the things that MAKES LIFE INTERESTING and FREES MY SPIRIT to STRIVE ON. I would like to take this “MOMENT” to ENCOURAGE YOU to Stick with Whatever You Are Doing or Aspire To Do!! I am totally convinced that OUR Collective Positive EFFORTS – WHEREVER WE ARE IN THE WORLD – will continue to REAP AMAZING RESULTS which will continue to make a DIFFERENCE in Our Lives and the Lives of Others. That’s What’s Up!! Come on Now…Just Do the Darn Thing…Let’s Roll. Live and Embrace a “HUGS Mindset.” Much Love…MarshaHUGS
