Winter hits hard, not so much snow and cold, but short days with dreary grass, trees, bushes and sky. I trudge the meadow path feeling bleak, no warmth inside my soul or nurturing presence…not for me, but I need it. I imagine my Mother Nature with flowing long hair in a beautiful wispy dress, hovering above showering love. Her gentleness, kindness and care guides me as I circle the muddy path. My imagery begins to offer solace and warmth. Though the grey day doesn’t change a shift inside does as arms wrap around me melting the icy insides.

If you feel you need an angel, imagine one. If you need a teddy bear or Raggedy Anne, have one. Hold it, hug it, do whatever it is that you need to feel warm and good. What would that be? I may be 63 but I am not too old to hug a teddy bear. I never will be.

  1. Hugging is so important, I am liking the message in your post very much. In my work, I use hugging therapy at every opportunity, it has such healing powers and its nice! I give and I recieve, its a win win situation 🙂

  2. This resonated. After therapy on Wednesday I came home, crawled into bed, and hugged a teddy. I felt so little and young inside. And it helped. And I’ll never be ashamed of it! I love the image you chose of mother nature.

    1. Thank you, I’ve used her before as she is closest to what is in my mind.
      I have a Teddy! And I believe in Santa.. : )
      I am glad you found comfort with yours. Yes, it does help. I thought it odd that does, but it does.

  3. You are such a beautiful writer and this is such a beautiful post. I love my little teddy, now 52 years old with no eyes or mouth, but beautiful to me.

    Visualization with positive intent and emotion is so powerful.

          1. Oh yes it certainly is, that aching aloneness that cant be filled at times. The place that should have been filled by parental care guidance and support rather than neglect and abuse or playing deaf to the abuse.
