Health Benefits of Owning a Pet

Just over 3 months ago we had a miracle occur with our cat being returned to us after several years of being absent. It's not an extremely profound story, but it is a touching story which was made even more endearing due to this mornings event.

Our sweet little Tilly passed away this morning. She was a good friend; we feel so blessed to have had this special, unexpected time with her. We will miss her. To understand why she is an extra special friend, please read the article below which  I wrote several months ago about the miracle of 'the cat came back'.

The inspiration for this post came unexpectedly.
Several years ago, we had to give up our favorite cat because we were moving and couldn't bring her with us. Tilly had been a part of our family for over 14 years. It was a difficult decision. She had brought a calming affect to our home of 11 rambunctious kids. She was quiet and unobtrusive.

 - just always there when we needed a friend.

Real Food vs Processed Food

Being raised on a small farm, my backyard was beautified with fruit trees and a large vegetable garden. We raised our own beef. Our milk cow provided us with fresh, pasture fed dairy products. One of my fondest, childhood memories is sitting down to the dinner table with my family and hearing my mom express her gratitude for the blessing that, "Everything we're eating tonight has come from our garden." 

Honey Facial

Did you know that your kitchen pantry holds all sorts of natural beauty products? These are what I call - My Kitchen Vanities. One of my favorites is HONEY.

Using honey as a facial cleanser and moisturizer sounds like 'sticky' business. In reality its easy to use, inexpensive, and and your face will love it.

Several months ago I quit using over-the-counter facial cleanser and moisturizers for one simple reason - the ingredients. I figure if I can't pronounce it, I'm not going to put it on my face.

How to Handle Cravings

My one and only weakness is ice cream! I enjoy the feel of cold and creamy inside my mouth and sliding down my throat! YUM! YUM! Needless to say, ice cream has also given me several unwanted pounds and aggravates the inflammation in my body. I hate hurting, but most of the time I love ice cream more.
 Do any of you have the same dilemma?
 Are the foods you love
the same foods your body hates?

Live Well, Age Well

There's no doubt about it, as each day dawns, we are one day older.
Do you find this exciting or depressing?

We live in a time when aging is looked on as something to fear. Let's face it, there are a lot of old people out there that have really poor health.

Why is that? It didn't used to be that way.
What's changed?
Does it have to be that way?
Is there anything I can do to change this trend or are we permanently stuck?

I'll answer these questions in just a minute, but first lets address another important fallacy.

Look Beautiful Every Day

About a year ago a friend of mine told me about the site Dressing Your Truth.

This is more than just a fashion course. It's all about bringing out your true, inner beauty, because we are all amazingly beautiful.
