Since Thanksgiving is just two days past
I thought I'd better let you know
what I am grateful for. I am grateful for
beautiful sunsets, the hope that
comes with a new day. The comfort a
true friend has to offer and my faith in
my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Thank you for giving your Son that I may
live again, God! I am so grateful for that faith!
It keep me going when all else is lost.
I'm thankful that I can make beautiful lace with a simple
strand of thread and a little tatting shuttle.
I'm also grateful for blogging friends
and visitors who care enough to visit
and leave fun comments. I don't know what
I would do without my blogging
buddies and I cannot tell you enough
how much blogging has enriched my life.
P.S. A few people have commented about wanting to know more about fact #2) I once managed to survive without going to a grocery store for over 4 years. Let me tell you the story behind that is nothing to be proud of, nor is it recommended. I went through a period in my life where, in order to save money, I rented rooms in various houses. I had access to the kitchen at each of the places that I rented, but I never felt comfortable using their dishes, their oven, their pots...etc, etc, because I had my own kitchen stuff in boxes in storage and I didn't want to make a mess that I didn't have time to clean up. Also during part of that time I was involved in an accelerated program in college and I was working two jobs so I would literally race to a fast food joint, eat on the way to work, when done with work, race to another fast food joint and eat on the way to class. Then when done with that I would race to another fast food joint and eat on the way to my evening job. Go home after work, collapse into bed and start it all over again the next day!
If I needed paper goods I either had roomates that picked that stuff up and I paid for my portion or I picked up personal things at a convenience store while getting gas. NO JOKE! LOL! I even sold cosmetics at that time so I got all my make up and shower gel, etc, from them for a very low price. I really didn't sell any cosmetics, it's just that the starter kit was only $99.00 USD so I paid for that once and I think I now have make up for three lifetimes over, LOL.
Here's why I absolutely do not recommend it. Eating on the run like that is very hard on your digestive system. It is important to relax and eat at a table whilst dining. I drank tons of diet coke and hardly any water at that time which is very dehydrating. Caffeine causes dehydration and the Aspartame used to sweeten it causes inflammation. It is well known that the preservatives in fast food, (never mind the manner in which it s processed and prepared) contains properties that if consumed enough over time can and will cause a variety of chronic inflammatory illnesses. Please don't subject your children, or yourself for that matter, to this sort of unhealthy lifestyle you will literally be giving them the "gift" of a chronic inflammatory disease which equals CHRONIC PAIN.
Please eat your vegetables and fruits! If you can get organic, so much the better! Grandma was right when she said, "eat your vegetables, they're good for you!". A balanced healthy diet is available at your grocery store along with the unhealthy junk. What you eat now is an investment in the kind of health you will have in the future.
Hugs and healthy eating to you all!
