E...is for Extra

Everyone wants extra this and extra that...well extra is not always a good thing.  For example, extra servings mean extra calories which can lead to extra pounds.  See, not such a good thing. Extra sun can mean extra exposure which can eventually lead to extremely bad things such as cancer.  Again, not such a good thing.

Now there are some positive extras too!  For example, extra hugs and kisses can lead to extra big love.  This is definitely a good thing.  Love coming from our loved ones is priceless. Don't you agree.  Extra hope can lead to more hope and that keeps us going strong in a difficult situation.  This too is a good thing. We all need hope, for it is what drives up to keep going and going and going...this is what dictionary.com says that hope is...the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best...

So let us go from here with a little Extra something...whether it be hope or love, let's pass it on to others. Blessings and have a great day.

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*

Beautiful posts. This Easter season I want to focus on all the extras Christ did for us--and the one big Special Thing.

I agree with you entirely. Extra of the abundance of nature leads to over-indulgance, but you can never have enough love.
