It’s been a while since I’ve written here. As I reviewed this blog, I realize, I now have little to say. I’ve gone on a very long and slow health journey. I believe my health today is better than it was 20 years ago. Granted, I am older, but I feel good…except… The Back Issue… Read more

Health and Discernment

Over the years, I’ve been rebuilding myself. As I make improvements, I can’t help but think of the old TV show, The Bionic Woman.  The major difference between my transformation and Jamie Sommers (Lindsay Wagner’s Bionic Woman character) is I’m rebuilding myself using nutrition while she used high-end metals and technology.

Thwarting My Nemisis – Sciatica

Last week I had to forgo my daily morning walks because my old nemesis decided to rear her ugly head. Yep, I’m talking about sciatica. It attempted to reclaim its old spot in my body. Wait a minute. Let me explain this properly. Sciatica didn’t just up and attack me one day. I threw the… Read more

My daughter decided to get a rather respectable size tattoo on her back. Because of the size and number of colors, it took more than one tattoo session to complete. For the record, I’m not crazy about tattoos, but she is of legal age and it’s her body, so what’s a mother to do but… Read more

What a nice idea! A vehicle essential oil diffuser. I don’t know about you, but I’m not too crazy about the inexpensive pine tree or other fresheners that folks hang from their rearview mirrors. The spray fresheners aren’t much better in my opinion. They’re supposed to make the car smell good, but either they’re too… Read more
