Food. The word nourish makes me think of someone’s mother. It’s a mother’s job to nourish her children when they are young and can’t provide for themselves. Many children and people in general are very mal

Nourish is when someone is properly eating all different types of food. I think about being healthy. I also think of the opposite of nourish which is malnourished. This makes me think of the millions of children that do not have enough to eat to help them grow and prosper in life.

Providing a necessary item for someone or something. You can provide nourishment for your children. You can nourish a plant back to life with sunlight and water. Includes vitamins, water, and veggies.
It was hard for the mother to understand the love she shared with her baby. She was very exicted to take care of her new born and nourish him in every way possible. She knew this was something she was looking foward to after having her baby, the feeling it gave her.

Providing a person the things that are necessary for them to live. You have to provide nourishment for a child. With out it they might not survive. This could include food and water.

I think of the nutritious food that we should eat. This such as strawberries, apples, melons. These fruits are refreshing as well as delicious. You must make sure that you are NOURISHED daily in order to survive.

When I was young my mom used to give healthy food to nourish my body. Most of these nutrients came from vegetables. As an adult i continue to nourish my body.

to nourish is to satisfy any wants, needs, desires
I need to nourish my craving for the outdoors by going canoeing.
I feel nourished by sunshine

nourishment is good for your bodyy

Nourish is being full and healthy in my interpretation. After eating a good meal I feel nourished and was ready for the rest of my day and whatever it may hold next. I hope my nephew will always be healthy
By Milfred Zeno on 04.12.2012
give me that! it’s my to nourish but only for a little bit. i promise to pass it on to you. and when i do i’m going to leave it behind and fly away. i’m going to use my toes and my fingertips and every strand of hair on my body, and every muscle and you can watch, until i fade away so much that you can’t see where i went.

Fruits and vegetables are very nourishing your your body. It is good to eat nourishing foods so you will have good nutrition for your body.

nourish my soul for I feel it aching and longing for just one more bite of that dish of your ever-flavorful presence. Starved and aching only for your face once more. Third world children with bulging bellies and welling eyes know only how I feel and that’s empty

you keep me alive
and nourish my soul
you fill my mind
and make me whole

Please say a prayer for those who are poor and starving. They nourish their souls with God’s Word, but could use a good meal. Regularly read the bible, and always thank God for food.

I’m thinking evil villains.
That’s what they always say when they’re being evil and they’re about to eat you! I almost never hear this word in a good or healthy context. I’m thinking Stephen King clown eating children in the sewers, and alien entities that prey upon hapless ships lost in space…
What the heck happened to this word??! ;)

I really cannot think of anything good to say. Hmm. At least I’m typing. That’s a step up from where I was before. I suppose that this will help NOURISH (heh-heh, see what I did there?) my writing skills.

The cold gray water nourished me, and I lay my head across the bed of pines and tried to sleep. The somber pounding of hooves against the dirt as troops sought for me has been reduced to an insistent echo in the left corner of my mind. I was almost too afraid to close my eyes, thinking that the men wearing black uniforms would return.

This is something we have to do everyday to keep ourselves healthy. both on the inside and the outside nourish our skin, cells and body. It has a place in the nutrition field too and it also has a place int eh fitness field/ It is something have to do in our relationships

The under eye circles that seen to darken into a light brown and gray. Nourishment. My mother thinks I don’t take care of myself and watched my eyes become sullen. Today she says I look better. The under eye circles decreasing in size.

When you are younger you are always told to eat your vegetables, because they nourish you and they will help you grow up to be big and strong.

nourishment is important. i feel like if i die of anything it will for sure be malnourishment. i dont eat real food, i eat processed shit…day in and day out. its bound to catch up with me sometime. obesity, heart disease, high cholesterol, i’ll take it all.
By jamesbitticks URL on 04.12.2012
We eat to sustain ourselves and we breathe to take a moment in time, a sustaining act in itself. The fresh air will revitalize you and you will find yourself thinking clearer, happier, and bouncier than before. You will know what to do.

Come follow me. Let me take you on a journey into my world, into my private domain. I will take care of you. I will nourish you, sustain you and build up your self-esteem. I will turn you round and make you into a better person than I could ever hope to be. You have potential. Let me be your mentor. Let me be your captain. Let me inspire and motivate you and I promise I will safeguard your soul.

Guess it was my time to play the role of patriarch. But I wasn’t ready. I had so much selfish impurity to indulge, and no time to care for the needs of these imbeciles. Why did they pick me for this role? I should have run away when I was 12.

The rain splattered down at my feet, and I tried to stare ahead without crying. I was alone at the swings, and I was alone then, at the top of the hill. I didn’t sit on that damned bench; I stood and watched the water add up in the tumultuous river. If I thought about it, I knew the tears would come. So I thought about the addition to the currents–the fresh new water from above. I didn’t have any additions; I had subtractions from my outlets. And that was it. The tears dripped down my chin and joined the dewy grass in a dance I would never understand.

i am hungry. i need nourishment. so so so so hungryyy!

Plants nourish us all, we should treat our world with more respect. I saw a man throw a cigarette out the window of his car while I was waiting at a red light behind him. It started rolling toward me and all I could think was, “I hope that doesn’t roll under my car and ignite some gas fumes”.

The bud opened with a swirl of its skin dress under the touch of droplets warmed from the sun. Its growth was a marvel lost to attention and its life had been a series of coincidental saves. A deer had fled from a hunter and its hooves had trampled that flower buds friends, that hunter had followed and cleared the brush around yet his sabre had trimmed only just the tip of the flower buds head. Luck and sunlight and warmth and refreshment and strife and handicap had all contributed to its beautiful stance of violet streaks upon a deep blue.
Nourishment in any form delivers life.

I don’t want to nourish anything today; I want to strangle something.

nourish the people. teach them to question, to seek out the absurd and embrace it with both arms, because after all isn’t the unreal our reality? teach them to doubt and to believe. teach them to strive and to grow and to expand their borders. teach them that enclosure is the only end worse than death.

Nourish my body, nourish my soul. It isn’t that hard, I swear. Spend a little time. Show me what you know about how to give me what I need. It’s not that hard, but, also, it’s not that simple.

He would spend all of his time nourishing her. He would feed her, bathe her, giver her lots and lots of love. He would let her flourish. But I stood there all of the time, trying to distance myself so I did not face punishment for intruding in his personal space (which was quite variable and would sometimes include the whole house), the wilting flower in need of care.

I nourished the thought of you starting to speak again. To be like it once was, but the thought slowly vanished over time. The glimmer is left in case you come back like you said you would (more of a polite f*** you than anything else). So here I sit, waiting still, but no longer bleeding like before. Grudges are like hand grenades, and I had to let this one go before it destroyed me.

Nourish is really only used when we talk about kids in Africa or plants. Today, I’m stuck dwelling on the former. No matter what, Americans tend to have a rubber glove approach to developing communities. We want to be charitable and love our neighbour, but we don’t really want to touch them too much or help the real locals. Even our rawest contact is controlled.
By bryan URL on 04.12.2012
He sits, silently, though I know he wants to speak. He nourishes me with his smiles. Even though I know he sees someone else. He isn’t looking at me, isn’t smiling at me, but I catch the lifts of cheek at an angle and feed the kindling with its flammable form and fuel the flames of blue-hot fire.

I wanted to nourish my life with ethics and values. I am not completely successful but yes I am trying, so I know I will be one day

Proper nourishment is very important for a plant to grow in such a hot summer. It includes watering.
