The Special Hug

I used to be a writer and send things out to be published. I would get a lot of rejection notices. One time they got me down and I cried. My little Benny asked why I was crying and I told him. He reached up and hugged me and said, "Is that better?" I said, "I may not be a published writer, but I have a three year old with eyes of blue who loves me God is so good"

I found that note one week when I was Aglow treasurer and needed to do little speeches. I told them them that I was thinking of taking up writing again. I knew that whatever happened, I had a 19 year old son with eyes of blue who was such a good boy and he loved me. God was so good. A lady in the audience gave me a prophecy about my writing. "This is the time God has for me to write, from the foundation of the world,, whether books or articles and He will bless it. It will be awesome. He will bring it forth." It was soon after that that I started my continuing series of letters from God. I have shared them and I believe God continues to use them.

Last week, I saw the title The Special Hug on my list of documents on my new computer. I now have a 29 year old son with eyes of blue who is such a fine young man. He has a son with eyes of blue who is wonderful. I still get good hugs from this good son. And my blog publishes my writing so the story comes full circle. God is so very good!


  1. Nancy: What a wonderful story! Thanks for sharing. You are blessed indeed.

  2. I loved this story:) We write for different reasons. SOme of it will get published and some of it won't.I got two rejections in the past four days. That same little hurt wants to rise up but I just beat it down and keep on going. We have to. That's just part of it all.

  3. Awww. You know, the rejections get to me sometimes too but I combat it by keeping as much out there as possible. I feel like by doing that, when I do get rejected, I can think, "Well there's always the 15 other queries I have out right now. Maybe one of those will strike gold."

  4. Isn't it great how God uses others to reaffirm his plans for us! Even blue-eyed boys? :)

  5. This is beautiful....Little Benny - now big Benny- always the sweetheart. I'm glad I snagged him when I did [grin].
