Monday Meet Up Linky Party

Hey Pretty People!

It's time for another Monday Meet Up!! But before we start, I just wanted to say that I've JUST begun a weekly Covered in Grace Newsletter. I added all of my blogging contacts (those of you that have had contact with me before about Covered in Grace in one way or another)...and while I know that was a bold move, I hope that it didn't bother or offend anyone. Please, feel free to unsubscribe at any time. AND...if you'd like to subscribe now, just click on the Newsletter tab over in the side bar. You can put your info in there. =D So....

This week we have a super sweet lady with us talking about something that I think we can all agree on: love & acceptance. She has been such an awesome part of my blogging community and I am so happy to have her here today!!

Hello sweet friends.
First of all, Thank You to Brooke for letting me host this awesome link-up, and of course letting me meet you wonderful people.
I want to share something with you that's been on my mind recently.
Here's the story.....
I was sat in the passenger seat of my Mum's car driving back home after taking the dog for a muddy walk.
School was out and consequently there were lots of Mums, Dads and kiddos milling around.
I'm minding my own business and staring out of the window when I spot two little girls; they can't have been more than 4 years old.
They saw each other, their faces lit up and they ran to each other, arms open and embraced.
Light bulb! Blog post idea in an instant. Love those moments!
We don't embrace any-more as a society. OK we embrace material objects, situations and celebrities, but we don't embrace people.
I'm not saying you go up to the next person you see on the street and hug them, although I would do that, but not everyone's a hugger.
We're too worried about who people are , what their backgrounds are like and what things they have experienced. I'm not saying don't be careful, we are all well aware that that there are some very nasty people out there.
Just be open. Just be approachable. Just be friendly.
Be the change.

Thank you so much for that, Helen.
I couldn't agree more!

    Oh my gosh, what you wrote is so true! I always tell my husband that he should greet me with the same exuberance that our daughter greets us at the door! When and where does this impulse go away??

    I thought of the same thing today. I was out and everyone was just keeping to themselves. There were no embraces. I was also thinking of how sometimes we need to open and be approachable because you never know who your new best friend could be.
