Over and Out.

It's hard to believe that I began this blog in 2008. I thought it would be fun to share a few recipes and share a few tips I have learned over my mothering years but it turned into so much more. 

I gained friendships and shared trials. I was uplifted and motivated. I was inspired by warrior mothers and urged to learn more. I became better because of my readers and am so very thankful for all of you who tuned in and shared the last four years with me.

I type tonight to say my goodbyes and for some silly reason, it makes me sad. I feel like I am saying goodbye's to my friends. It's just time. In my 711 posts on this blog, I think I have said what I have to say. If you have missed it, I am going to sum up all my words of wisdom for a healthy and happy life according to the Enlightened Homemaker right here and now:

Take care of yourself. 

Eat Naked Food. 

Don't drink soda. ( OK, I do have a DP once in a while)

Listen to your body. Don't wait until it's too late.

Family is number 1.

Plant a garden.

Have a year supply of food.

Get out of debt.

The Lord has given us on this Earth what we need to heal ourselves. You just need to search it out and ask for direction.

Serve, serve, serve. It is the key to happiness.

Moderation in ALL things. 

Let go of hurt feelings.

Paint your toenails.

Clean out the yeast in your body.

Take some D3 and vitamin C.

Autism can be treated. It takes HARD work but oh so worth it.

If you want something bad enough, you can achieve it.

You can do hard things.

Stop whining. 

Time flies. Make the moments matter.

Cut down on sugar.

The only way to loose weight is to cut out the junk. 

Don't eat fast food.

Don't try to be like someone else.

Love your neighbor.

Always be learning something new.

Be happy.

Have a wonderful 2013. It is going to be a great year. It's up to us. I am going to drink it all in. There is not a minute to waste. 

I am still an email away and will be on facebook to share little tid bits I find. I will still order supplements so email me your orders. 

Thank you all. Keep in touch.

I still reserve the right to come back at some point if I ever think I have something else to say. You will be the first to know. I promise.

This is very true, cleaning your body inside out is really needed to maintain a good body and by avoiding zinc deficiency which is a common nutritional deficiency which we do not know about.
