Life and how to reflect on it!

Life and how precious it is! We all need to take some time to reflect on our lives . However, don’ t start dwelling on the past, as that will do you no good. Instead you need to think moving ahead what can I change? What are the things holding me back at the present time. If you have been seeing a counselor or therapist, what are the things the have been telling you to work on? Are you listening? Do you have good list started on what you really need to work on that will help you grow as a person? Are you learning to communicate well and be a good listener? Remember the conversation is not a conversation if those involved are not all communicating. Stop and listen, really listen to what is being said.

When we are little we can not wait to grow up. When we are teen agers we can not understand why the 20’s don’t come around sooner! We want to be treated like grown ups, but the consequences of our actions can really make your life change. Being a teenager should be fun! You should be involved in school.

When we are in our 30’s we begin to think life is running by and I am not even done growing up yet. I want to make a name for myself and have all the material things that everyone is so impressed with.

When our 4o’s arrive , our minds are whirling with questions? I was going to have a family! My career used to be so important? Why haven’t I been able to save money? Maybe your questions swing on the other side of the pendulum? Questions like my kids want to go to college, but should they go. What do they expect from college and will it permanently put a financial Knick in everything. How have they helped in preparing for college?

When our 50’s begin, all of a sudden you realized how important your health is. What have you been doing to keep the good health you have been blessed with. So many people in their 50’s begin to talk about retirement . Retirement, wait a minute you may live another 30-40 years? Are you prepared?

Continued another day!

Thank you, Thank you, dear family.

What has your life been like since Thanksgiving? Busy, busy and then busier than ever. I am sure everyone has their lists and then their mini lists that define everything on the bigger list. Not sure lists would have helped much here, but what needed to be done got done.

Our lives have been turned upside down. First, daughter had surgery, then I had surgery, then our son had surgery. Sadly next a death in our extended family. Add to all of the critic things, the internet going down, computers and phones unavailable and we broke my husbands printer, trying to undue a paper jam. All of these impacted us and when you are really involved life is super hectic.

In between all of this we had the Kiefle making party, which takes a lot of organization and so much help, when the family is as big as ours. This is something my husband wanted to do one more time and now the tradition has been passed down. Everyone that possibly could came and participated. Those that could then put up the Christmas tree. God Bless You. Of course we had the new puppy here and one of our great granddaughters who had a fabulous time.

The upside down bucket is finally turning upright and we sure hope it that way. The biggest thing needed during this time was patience, patience and more patience. Prayers also helped!. Lots of prayers.

We have a wonderful family who pitched in to help whenever they could, where ever they could, for as long as they could . That included taking someone to appointments and therapies, making meals , shopping and cooking, doing dishes, doing laundry and just listening. A special big big thank you to each and everyone of you. Our family has stayed together through thick and thin, some pretty big disagreements and these things listed above are what make a family a family. I am including our great sons in law, our daughter in law and the grandchildren who checked in and called to see that we were doing well. Thank you!

Short story to make you smile, our one son in law, who shall remain nameless, noticed how bad the shelf in the kitchen cupboard had become. It went up hill in the middle and had been that way for at least a year. It is my understanding that he took the shelf down ,jumped on it, turned it over and then proceeded to put it back in the cupboard. Of course he washed it good before the dishes went back on the shelf. Daughter helping him said it was pretty funny. Shelf is almost straight now.

A fantastic family photo from years ago at Christmas time.

Holiday baskets with you in mind, AMAZON, for the perfect holiday gift!

Thinking of fixing baskets for Christmas, a birthday, just as a thank you to someone who has been there for you and your family. There is no time like the present to begin. Are you doing baskets for family members, church friends, grandchildren, a family having a difficult time financially, newlyweds, a new grandbaby or just a new baby. How about a basket for a new mother who is just too tired to get what she needs. Baskets of food are always appreciated.

A great place to start is of course Amazon. With it’s great selection of items, where else. They have filled baskets, empty baskets, makeup baskets, food baskets, relaxation baskets, anyway you get the idea.

Baskets of every size and selection, add to, change what you originally were going to add to a basket. Buy a few baskets and get original. Divide your list into items needed for each particular person or family:

  • Who is the basket for?
  • What will be needed for each basket?
  • Think of needs ( necessities)?, for example find out how you could pay a utility for someone and put the paid bill receipt in the basket as part of your giving.
  • Toys? Clothing? towels, laundry soap, Food,
    • Be original, as I said above and check out Amazon for wonderful selections.

A yummy, good selection of jellies and sauces to enhance your Christmas breakfast.

Here’s for those that do an original basket and would like to fill it to the brim with your own goodies. Get those creative juices flowing!

The perfect relaxing gift for an overworked mom, hardworking spouse, or any significant other in your life.

Snackie basket anyone?

Essential Oils and labels

Are labels important! Yes if you want good quality essential oils. There are lots of essential oils out there and I really knew nothing about essential oils. In looking at labels for essential oils I used a Young Living label. Highest quality essential oils have this information listed. Not listed take another look, perhaps the essential oil might have been adulterated or could be an indicator of an essential oil of lower quality.

Here is what is on the Young Living Essential Oil Cypress Label

Directions clearly spelled out – 2-4 drops directly to desired area. Dilution not required, except for sensitive skin. Use as directed. Aromatic – Diffuse up to 1 hr. 3x daily.

Safety precautions right on label – Caution! Keep out of reach of children. For external use only. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition consult a health professional prior to use. Good memory refresher and a reminder that safety precautions always should be followed.

Flammable – Do not use near fire, flame, heat or sparks. Do not store above room temperature.

Scientific name listed Young living Cypress – 100% pure therapeutic grade, essential oil 0.5 fl. oz (15 Ml). Ingredients – Cupressus Sempervivens’ (Cypress) leaf/nut/stem oil – 100% pure, therapeutic -grade essential oil.
