Thoughts on Thanksgiving
Mood:  hungry
Now Playing: "Thank You," by Sly and the Family Stone AND Led Zeppelin!
Topic: Reflective
 
Oh, yes!  Thank you for letting me by myself!!!!
 
I'm not a "perfect" person...or naturopath....or mother....or minister...or friend.  But I'm created in perfection, as are we all, and I am very grateful for that today!
 
What a relief!  I mean, people sometimes expect others to meet their standard of what they think others should be, and that's just a silly idea.  I get it a lot in my position...you know....JUDGED!  People think I should have a fancier car if I'm good at my work, or a fancier house or fancier clothes.  There are those who want to test me, and just dismiss me because sometimes I giggle or laugh!  What a silly reason to decide whether I'm able to help them regarding their health.  As a matter of fact, I really believe laughter is GOOD!  Hahaha!
 
We all get it...people who think we should be doing something this way or that way, and deciding they're better than us, or that we just aren't making the grade.
 
Sometimes, of course, we could improve.  Maybe we're a little mean sometimes when we could be kind.  I know I can get snippy sometimes!  
 
But it's human for us to make mistakes and faulter, and also to display indifvidual traits, and to hold different ideas and viewpoints on things.  This is all part of the plan...The plan where we're created in the image of God, but living this life in human form.
 
So, my job involves me as a human making mistakes but keeping my eye on the path.  I've been on the trail that I'm following a little bit longer than some, and so I help to guide those along who come to me and ask me questions regarding how to get through this whole maze in a healthier way.  There are others who have gone before me, and many who are further along.  But I am willing to help those who ask me.  That doesn't mean I'm better or more perfect than anyone else.  Why in the world should I be?

So I want to thank you for letting me be myself.  I could have waited to put myself out there in a position of helping the way that I've done until I felt more comfortable in the way I'd be perceived.  Instead, my readers and clients and friends have allowed me to just be myself...struggling along like everyone else, and trying to apply what I know...attempting to learn html just to get out the word about natural health, and all of the other things I've stumbled through!  If I would have waited until I could afford to hire a webmaster, you wouldn't be reading this now.

This all brings me to what I'd like to say...THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH!  I've been so well received by the people I've interacted with through writing this blog and my other activity online that it has made my work very, very worthwhile!  I've received so many notes, cards, phone calls and letters telling me how much what I do has helped.  That keeps me going, because I want so much to be a channel for healing good!  So thank you for letting me know!

I'm also verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry thankful for what we've been given to heal. 

AIR to breathe into our lungs and to carry throughout our whole entire body to live! 

WATER to refresh our every cell and to move the nutrients along and the impurities out.  

FOOD the way it was created...perfect, whole, nutritious, tasty andGOOD without GMO's!!!

HERBS which are really foods, too!!!!  Herbs are food to every part of our body and provide what is needed to heal.

AROMA which is natural and fragrantly healing, touching us through the most sensitive parts of our mind.

COLOR to wrap us in vibrational healing, there to excite, calm, inspire and heal us in a rainbow of light.

SOUND - sounds of laughter, of birds, of raindrops, of singing, of crickets, of frogs and so many things which resonate through us to give vibratory healing clear down to the bone.  Even the deaf benefit from sound healing, as do those with no voice of their own.  Sound is healing both to hear and to make.  Mostly it's something to feel.  Sound touches us in so many ways.

MOVEMENT which carries our body from here to there to carry out the tasks we shoudl do.  Movement that stretches us, and keeps our blood flowing.  Movement of everything in us, representing vibration, again.  (You can see where I got my name!  Vibraceous is symbolic of all vibrational healing, which occurs in every form.)

RELAXATION is important, too.  I forget that sometimes and I go, go, go, but then Life steps in and MAKES me relax when I don't take the time to do it myself!  That's when my body gives way.  It's much easier and more effetive and less stressful to just do it in the first place, I find.  Meditation seems to take time, but in the long run it saves it by much.  Meditation, sleep, and just plain letting all problems go and enjoying a quiet moment or two, even if in front of TV.  (I don't even have TV!  I really do need to learn to relax!  Hahaha!)

LAUGHTER to massage the happy zone in our brain and to move all our organs around to feel good!  Laughter is a really good thing and it sets happy and healthy chemicals off, besides oxygenating our bodies and a lot of other good healthy things. It also keeps our attitude up and that's always good in the healing realm.

TEARS are good, too...they release toxins and pain, besides of course washing our eyes.  They wash our souls is what they do the best.  There's a lot to be said for just sitting down and having a good cry now and then!  Sometimes we think that we're not allowed.  That's one of the biggest health problems I know!  Waters flow for a reason for good within and without.

PRAYER has so much power to heal.  Prayer has ALL the power, in fact!  Positive prayers of belief that there is perfection within our design.  Prayers asking for guidance of how to proceed.  Prayers to have an open mind in the face of all else we are told, to keep believing that we can be healed.  Prayers to see the good in life every day and to focus on only GOOD.  (I believe God is Good!)

LOVE - of ourselves, of each other, of God.  Love can heal all wounds and comfort all pain.  Love of friends, family, animals, and life itself is what heals better than anything else.  Even in death, when there is love, there is life.  

I'm very thankful for the awareness of these healing gifts, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to pass this awareness along.  It's more than an opportunity to me, it's a responsibility...part of what allows me to become more and more aware of these gifts all the time.  It is in helping othres I learn.  (Not that I'm practicing medicine...I'm not licensed for that!  But I'm am trying to pratice as much natural health as I can!)

Today I am going to go to my mother's.  Perhaps you've read of her in my writings before.  My mom's 93 and cute as can be.  She's the one who first taught me about natural health.  I'm so happy to be able to be with her today!

Then on Sunday I'm going to cook here at home with the kids, and I'm also looking real forward to that!  I'm going to make everything homemade....dressing, mushroom gravy, organic sweet corn and mashed pototoes and fluffy green salad and real cranberries that pop!  I love it!  Sweet potatoes with butter I'm going to whip myself from fresh cream, and whipped cream for on top of the homemade pumpkin pie that I"m going to make!  Woo hoo!  I don't eat turkey, but someone gave one to us and my kids and the cats and the dog will make sure it did not die in vain.  God bless all the sweet turkeys at this time of year for the terrible sacrifice they make for us.

I'm grateful for all the animals and all the sacrifices they make, and I pray that people will learn to be kind. 

I'm grateful for the beauty in all of nature, in everyone, in every song of the bird and every beautiful rainbow and smile.

I'm so thankful for my mom and my kids and my grandson and my sister and brother and all my cats, dogs and friends!  I'm grateful for the people who have taught me so much, especially those that I serve. 

I'm grateful for the relief from sickness I've had in my life, and I'm grateful to be free from drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and the addiction to many foods which are not good for me. 

I'm grateful for my home, for my health, for the daily bread that I eat. 

I'm grateful for the books and the knowledge I have and the experiences which have helped me along the way, and all the people with blessings and lessons for me. 

I'm just grateful to be alive, especially when there have been so many times in my own personal life when I've almost died, mostly through my own neglegence to do things according to nature, although sometimes I just didn't know.  In all of those cases I'm extremely grateful for GRACE! 

I'm thankful to God for creating and sustaining all this.

So many things to be grateful for, even in hard times.  I'm grateful to learn from the hard times and use them to soften my soul, and I'm grateful for the good times that come as surely as the rising sun.  

I'm grateful to know that there's nothting that cannot be healed...no physical injury, no sickness, no relationship problem, no financial crisis...there's nothing, NOTHING that cannot be healed!

What is God?
Mood:  hug me
Topic: Reflective
I wrote this at 12 years of age...the age at which I first realized what my life's work was to be, and I accepted the call. I ran across it the other day, and it is amazing how much it is like something that I would have written today, nearly 40 years later. It was an affirmation to me that I'm on the path that I'm meant to be on!

The following is exactly as typed on my old Royal Typewriter. The pictures are electronically cut and pasted instead of taken from magazines, but the text remains exactly the same. I did not edit at all. Please read and enjoy, my thoughts on God at 12...



WHAT IS GOD?

By Mary Jo Eshelman (Jody) -- 7th Grade English Class, 1969

I shall not attempt to define God, for that would be to limit Him, but I will try to express my idea of Him to you by asking you to consider several different aspects of His nature.

God is not a person, but Principle. He is the unchangeable Truth. God as principle is absolute good expressed in all creation. When men know God and worship Him in Spirit and Truth, they recognize Him as this great goodness.

God is that from which all love springs. His character is taught in the name Father, representing the love, the care, the protection, and the providing care of God for man, His offspring.

We do not see God with our physical eyes, except through His works. His attributes are brought into expression by man, who is like Him in essence. We must raise our thought and feeling to God’s level if we are to make ourselves perfect channels through which He can come forth into perfect manifestation.

God is Spirit, the principal of life and intelligence, everywhere present at all times. Spirit is that which cannot be destroyed or damaged or hurt, or degraded in any way.

God is absolute wholeness and perfection. Man’s recognition of his oneness with the perfect wholeness brings him into the consciousness of his indwelling life and health.

Mind is the connecting link between God and man. God-Mind is the source of every manifestation of true knowledge and intelligence. The mind of man is unlimited and through it he may come into touch with Divine Mind. To the extent that man practices identifying himself with the one and only source of existence, he becomes Spirit, until finally the union attains perfection.

God is the substance that lies back of all matter and all form. It is the basis of all forms, but it cannot be seen, tasted or touched. Yet it is the only enduring substance in the universe.

The belief that God wills both good and evil is false; the truth is that God is all good and only good can come to man from Him. If man experiences error and disharmony, he brings them upon himself by his failure to harmonize his thoughts and acts with Divine Law.

God’s name represents wholeness. It is holy and perfect. When we think of God as being anything less than perfect we are taking His name in vain.

God is Life. God is not just living, nor does God just give life, but God IS Life.

God is Truth. Tod is not truthful, but Truth itself, and wherever this is Truth, there is God. God is absolute Truth and does not change.


GOD IS!!!


For every creature of God is good.
1 Timothy 4:4

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw it was good.
Genesis 1:25

A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast.
Proverbs 12:10

GOD IS HOPE!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life!!!

Within and without…God is everywhere!

God is the essence of all there is.

God is in all I do.

Become ye as little children.
Matthew 18:3



Cleanliness is next to Godliness?


God is within us all.

God is LIFE!
Life, death, life…


God is peace.

God is my laughter.

God is my health and energy.

God is my prosperity. The Father within knows my needs…and fulfills them!

God is my security.




God is beauty.

Let brotherly love continue.

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love.
Romans 12:10

So many kinds of LOVE.

He that loveth not knoweth not God: for God is love.
1 John 4:8

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out all fear. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4:18

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
1 John 4:7

GOD IS LOVE.

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creatures that hath life, and fowl may fly above the earth in the open firmament in heaven.
Genesis 1:20

In His hand is the soul of every living thing.
Job 12:10

GOD IS NATURE.

Only God can make a tree.


Love and Blessings,
Jody

Of Life and of Love, and of Letting Go...On to Life's Next Beautiful Song
Mood:  blue
Now Playing: "Free as a Bird," by the Beatles
Topic: Reflective
Hello...

I hope this morning finds everyone happy and well.

My morning didn't start out very well. There was a death in the household. My lovebird, named Jo. She was murdered by an innocent dog.

I'm going to miss her. Jo used to sit here by my desk while I typed and she kept me lots of good company.

It's hard when death comes around. Letting go is not easy sometimes. That seems to be a theme in my life right now. I'm working through a few things.

You know, everyone has issues and problems. When we are the ones facing them, they seem like the biggest things in the world, but they're not. Everything is so relative to our perspective in that moment in time. I'm sure, in fact, Jo is happy somewhere right now flying high in another dimension with Bruce...the other half of the pair, who left her too lonely too long when he died last year around this same time.

LIfe's full of hardships, losses, and disappointments. It's also full of so much love and wonderful, wonderful things. Challenges can't be avoided. I try to just enjoy working through whatever life brings along. It means I'm still alive.

Sometimes it can be tiring, though, when we think we're all out of strength. That's when I turn to my inner resources...that presence inside I call God. Not just in me, but in all of life...That Power that makes everything work out just right in a much bigger plan than I know.

Anyways, enough reflection for right now. I have a lot of work to get done! I'll cry again later, when I tell my daughter, and then later again at the funeral, which the dogs will attend.

They're starting to understand...Toto chased a rabbit out into the road awhile back and saw it get hit by a car. Then we had a funeral for it, and Toto was really upset for awhile. I've noticed a difference in his attitude towards life since that time. I think he understands why we always tell him not to go in the road. I think he understands danger and death a bit more.

Unfortunately this time it was the other dog. Dorothy. She is still learning. She's very gentle with cats, but evidently not so much with birds. God forgives Dorothy, though, because she is covered in grace and didn't know any better than that. (I guess I will forgive her, too.)

So...Ritorno a vita! Return to life. The website isn't near finished, and I want to get the word of healing to you!

Exciting things are in the works with All Natural HealthWorks! There will be LOTS of good things coming up!

For one thing, we have lots of good people who are available for a variety of services! These sections aren't done yet...It takes time to get all of this posted, and I want to do it right now! (That's one of my frustrations in life...I want what I want right NOW! Hahaha!)

But if anything we have to offer catches your eye and you would like to know more, please feel free to write us an e-mail and ask! We're ready to serve you, we just don't have the info out yet.

There will be MORE good things coming up soon! Look for news of our Grand Opening celebration to be held this fall! It will be lots of fun packed with good eats, and great learning, and wonderful old and new friends!

Here's some really good news Ihave to share!...(Ta-Da!!!) It's called Dancer's Delight! :-D

One of the things that I have been so busy with which has kept me from writing to you is that I've been working on putting a website up for my daughter, to help her raise money for dance!

The part which might interest you...(not that ALL of it isn't fun!)...is the section on . (And remember...we are ALL dancers at heart!)

Actually, YES!...The whole website might interest you! In fact, if you ever shop at Toys 'R Us, Amazon, E-bay, Muscian's Friend...if you ever wear Hanes or use make-up or want a hairpiece...if you want to send a Vermont Teddy Bear to a friend, or a PajamaGram, or balloons...if you like to take pictures and need a camera or need them developed, or if you want to put photos on T-shirts or coffee cups or mousepads...if you like to sew and need fabric or anything else from JoAnn's...if you need airline tickets, hotel, car rental services...if you need luggage or tickets to a concert, football game or Broadway show...PLEASE visit my daughter's site!!! It will help keep her in dancing shoes! We've got lots of cool products, so please be sure to visit us there! :-D

Show you care, send a Bear!(Yes...I just did an ad, but come on! It's a good cause for a very, very good kid!!!)

You will also find on her website easy ways to earn money, if that's something of interest to you!

Family is so important. Children, of course, but yes...animals, too. That's the way we see it, at least.

Having a pet is a great responsibility. It is a true lesson in love. I've had pets all my life, so I know. Having pets has has helped me to see the oneness in all...it has helped me to be less selfish, and to understand the meaning of life comes from giving love.

Animals are truly amazing. Even the tiniest ones are able to give love in return. I've had pets all the way down to the tiniest, too, so I know. I'm going to miss my bird, Jo.

You know what, though? I've made a decision. I'm not going to put anymore birds inside cages again. I have Henry, my canary, upstairs in my room in a very big cage, but from now on if I want a bird, I'm going to put a bird feeder by my window right here by my desk instead. I think it's only fair to the bird. I dedicate that decision to Jo and to Henry and Bruce, and all the other birds I have loved!

My mom, who just turned 90, has a cockatiel named Snookie she loves. Snookie loves Granny, too! He keeps my mom from being lonely. She lets him out of his cage (no dogs or cats) and he follows her around everywhere, and takes a nap right next to her every day! I really think, more than anything else, that bird is what keeps her alive. There's an incredible healing power to pets. It is the healing power of LOVE.

So, I will bless Jo on her journey, and thank her for spending this time with my children and I. She has brought beauty and joy to our home, and we will remember her always with smiles!

Thank God for the beautiful gifts of color and song that birds bring, and also their sweet gift of love.

And so life goes on and on. There's a bird now chirping in the tree outside my window right now, as if to say, "I am here!"

Thank you for being a part of my life! Have a beautiful day!

Happy Father's Day!
Mood:  blue
Now Playing: "The Lord's Prayer," as sung by my Dad
Topic: Reflective
Memories of my father come flooding my head today, and I think of so many things. I remember being his sunshine, sitting up on his knee while he read to me, going horseyback riding, watching him work, and riding the tractor with him. I remember lots and lots of good things!

I remember him singing...always singing to me and to everyone else. He sang with his brothers, he sang in church, he sang in the car, the backyard, and he made so many happy with song, especially his little girl.

On Father's Day, I think of him, and I think of the word Father and all that it means. Whether we had good parents, bad parents, parents who are here or who are gone...We all have something of them inside of us, which we carry on to our kids.

Is it just genes? I don't know. But let's honor that part of ourselves today. It's something we cannot deny.

Father. That word as applied on the larger scale is one word that's used for God.

Our Father,
Which art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth, as it is, in Heaven.
Give us this day,
Our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil,
For thine is the kingdom,
And the power,
And the glory,
Forever!
Amen

OUR Father. We are created in the image and likeness of God. It's more than just genes...It is love. Created in the image and likeness of love, in who's eyes perfection is found.

God is Love, as are we. Let us honor that love in us all.

Happy Father's Day to us All!

"Jody"--Daddy's Little Sunshine!

Easy Does It....Keep It Simple
Mood:  vegas lucky
Now Playing: Feelin' Groovy by Simon and Garfunkel
Topic: Reflective
Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy
Ba da da da da da da, feeling groovy

Hello lamppost, what'cha knowing
I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
Doo-it in doo doo, feeling groovy
Ba da da da da da da, feeling groovy

I got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you,




What a beautiful day today! I'm washing my windows today so I can see outside better. It's gorgeous! I planted a mulberry tree outside the window next to my desk, so there are birds by me all the time. There is a robin right now. (I also have a love bird in this room with me, and she loves to hear other birds! I have a canary in my bedroom, as well, and they chirp back and forth all the time!)

But life is good. I went outside this morning and picked some berries, and now I'm sitting here typing to you, listening to birds singing all around me...outside, in the same room, and upstairs. There's a nice breeze, and all I can think is what a beautiful day that it is!

Do I have stresses? Wowie zowie, I do! Do I have problems? You bet. Some of them are pretty big. But I find that if I take time to enjoy the simplest things that life gives, I find so much to be grateful for, and it helps me to know that it's not the end of the world, no matter how big my problems might seem.

Keep it Simple. There's a good saying. This weekend was the Founder's Day weekend celebration that they have every year for AA. (Alcholics Anonymous was founded in Akron, Ohio.) Well, AA has pretty good slogans...Good addages that anyone could do better to live by. Keep it Simple, is one.

Another is Easy Does It. You know, when we ram our way through life, pushing and pushing so much just trying to make it all work, we actually screw it all up. We need to relax and Let go and Let God. Another one of the sayings they use!

Life is good. Groovy, in fact! And if we learn to just take it One Day at a Time, we find out it's not so bad.

Fake It Until You Make It! There's another good one! If you don't know what to do, just do what you do know, put one foot in front of the other and pray. Pray believing you've already received, and give thanks; it is yours! (Of course faith without works is dead, so you might have to act on those prayers...Easy Does It, But Do It, you know!)

Keep It Simple. Take time to be still and hear the truth whispering within your soul. You are whole and free, created perfect in the eyes of God. Your needs are supplied, if you will just train your eye to recognize the presence of Good in your life. Then just sit back and enjoy, and make good use of what has been given to you!

If we learn to live life with an Attitude of Gratitude, we'll find there's so much in our lives to be grateful for.

So today, what am I doing? I've got sooooo much to do that sometimes I get overwhelmed. Well, I'm just going to do what's in front of me. I'm going to wash the windows and enjoy this beautiful day! Tomorrow I can take care of something else, but today the windows get clean!

I think that's a good way to live. That way I don't get depressed. When I'm depressed, I can't accomplish a thing, and then there's something to get depressed about!

Awwww...I just looked back out my window, and there are two birds in the tree...a male and a female. I don't know what kind they are, but they are so sweet, and he's feeding mulberries to her! I think they must be in love! See how nice life can be? Just look for the simple things to find beauty, and you'll find it's all around!

And you know what? If you make a practice to encorporate these simple words into your life, I think you'll find in not long, that your health will improve in ways you didn't even know that it could! Anything is easier to take with a smile, but the science is there now to prove that happiness heals!

Have a Peaceful, Beautiful Day! (I'm going to make mulberry pie!!!)

Words of Comfort and Hope

Now Playing: I Believe
Topic: Reflective

Matthew 6:26 - Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value then they?

Matthew 7:7-11 - Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone; or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Matthew 9:22 -
But Jesus turning and seeing her said, Daughter, be of good cheer; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Matthew 9:29 -
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it done unto you.

Matthew 15:28 -
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it done unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour.

Matthew 17:20 - And he saith unto them, Because of your little faith: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Matthew 21:22 -
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.



There is a Power much greater than us, that can do what we cannot do for ourselves. This power is within us. Closer than our hands and our feet. No matter how big your problems may seem, or how great your need, please remember, that all things are possible. There is nothing that cannot be healed!

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows,
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way.
I believe,
Oh, I believe.
I believe above the storm
The smallest prayer, will still be heard.
I believe that someone in that great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky,
Then I know why I believe.
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky,
Then I know why I believe


Have a beautiful, spirit-filled day!

Happy Memorial Day!
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: You Are My Sunshine!
Topic: Reflective
Hello!

My Dad used to sit me on his lap and read stories to me and call me his Sunshine. I'm thinking about him today. My father would be proud of me, I think. At least I hope he would be. So much of what I am is due to his inspiration. He died from colon cancer...or rather from complications due to the treatment he underwent. If only I had known then some of the things I know now, well perhaps...Perhaps it was just his time, or perhaps...I can't help but to think perhaps. Perhaps I can help someone else now. If so, it will be for him.

I'm thinking about my children's father today, as well, and wishing he were still around to be a part of this all. He was a social worker, and he knew what natural health could accomplish because he saw it happen in me. He wanted to do this type of work. He had a lot of good ideas as to how to incorporate principles of natural healing into the social work field. But he died. He died too early. I wish he were still alive. There are so many things that I'd like to share with him of what I have learned. Perhaps the illness which took him might have been relieved. I've learned about things that make me wonder..."perhaps."

There are a lot of people who come into my mind on Memorial Day. I think about the woman I spoke with one time who needed...wanted...so badly to learn about herbs. She was on a breathing machine. At the time, all I knew to tell her was about the herbs that I had come to recognize as superb...and they were...but they were quite expensive, as well. Well, she died. She died before I got the chance to tell her that herbs grow for free in her yard. In memory of her, I always want to teach those who might need this information to live.

I think about all the people I know who have died from alcoholism, or from addiction, or from taking their lives in one last act of despair. I want to give reason to people like them to have hope.

I think of my mother. My mother is still alive, and I want to help her now, while she is. She always asks me how long I want her to live...she will be 90 on July 1st! I tell her that I want her to live for as long as she can, but that the important thing is that I want her to feel good for that time. I don't want my mother grunting and groaning and hurting each day. I want her to be up, feeling good! That's why I do this work! Just to help people learn how to feel better...That's all. The miracles are all up to God!

I had a dog, Ruthie. Ruthie was almost 16. She died last October, and I really miss her a lot. But the nice thing about the way Ruthie died was that she felt good at the end. She had lived a hard life...the first 10 years were spent entirely outside. Then she had a lot of health problems, such as arthritis and flea allergies. I worked with Ruthie with herbs, and when she died, she felt good! Her allergies had been gone for quite some time, (as well as the fleas!), and she ran like a puppy out in the yard, no sign of achy knees. That's the power of herbs!


So blessings to you on this Memorial Day, and let's remember to do all we can to help make life a little bit better for those of us still here. Do it for them. Do it for the soldiers who fought for us to have the freedom of choice. Choose to live...and choose to live in good health and to spread the good news everywhere!

On Memorial Day I want to remember the people...and animals...all over the world who have died in suffering and pain. May I do my part to help lessen that. Will you join me together in this? God bless all those who went before us, and God bless those yet to come.


Now let's fire up the grill and get on with this holiday! (Mmmm...Roasted veggies sound GOOD!)

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!
