A Year of Blessings

November 30, 2018

Can you believe Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is upon us. I am certainly sitting here wondering how 2018 flew by so fast and yet at certain times I felt like it dragged on and on; like when it took a year for our home to sell, but it was also at this time I dug deeper into prayer and knew it was my Lord’s will and timing not mine. 

2018 Hug Milestones:
On March 6, I had my 2nd knee replacement surgery.

Sold our Boerne home in August.Became full-time RVer’s, moved our “Casita Hug” to Kerrville in August.

Moved from Kerrville to Abilene in October. 

Went to Europe last week in October/Nov.

And in conclusion, writing is another one of my passions and even though I write almost daily. My (free)blog had closed on me. I Am A Story-Teller or as my sister, Manuela once stated, you are the “keeper of the family archives.”Photographic documentation and oral tradition is an integral part of my record-keeping. Allowing me to share my family’s memories of those that came before me, while they are still deeply engrained in my heart, so that they may be preserved for future generations (if anyone cares to know). Thanksgiving week I made the decision to re-ignite my Abrazos y Besos blog again. Follow me on abrazosybesosblog.wordpress.com 

**I have posted some older writings on my blog to keep some chronological order and to preserve my writings. I will start fresh now.
A huge gratitude of Thanks

I am perpetually creative, and my eyes “feel” art everywhere. Who am I, I am an open book. I believe that sharing “from the heart” with one another is what connects us, heals us, and inspires us! My love for my Lord, family, friends, cooking, crafting, gardening/nature, vintage, sewing and different cultures; these passions and too many more to list, have moved my hand to paper, thus, Abrazos y Besos. In addition to a nudge by my baby sister, Dudies. My last name is Hug which means Abrazo in Spanish, hence the name of my blog: “Abrazos y Besos” translating to “Hugs & Kisses.” I will focus on our personal life journey with Mi Corazon (Augie Hug) sprinkled with love, spice and fun. Please tune in. Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV) 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
