Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

This year I am thankful for my soft place to land, even though he had absolutely no reason to do so, and even though his fears would make it difficult, it is a roof over my head, and for that I am truly thankful. I am thankful for my family for putting up with me this year. It was the most difficult year of my life, and that is saying alot. I've lived through things I shouldn't have survived.

I'm thankful to my children. I know I've worried you. I'm especially thankful to my youngest son for not letting the fact that I pretty much went off the deep end this year, scare him into avoiding me. It only takes a little bit of crazy to scare the hell out of people. And you're pretty fearless and stayed right by my side. You would always try to be there, even when I was at my worse and I'm sure you would have liked to be just about anywhere else. And to my my oldest son, you are always so very kind to me. And my daughter, you were willing to do a very difficult thing for me. And to my middle son, I will always love you, and I do not blame you for how angry you are with me right now. Everyone of us has a right to how we feel. I will not try to censor or control yours. I love you all. I know you have not understood some of my choices. Sometimes I don't understand them either. But I always feel our Great Mother watching over us. And I always come out stronger.

I'm thankful for all my angels and guides for brining me through my dark night of my soul. I see the light of day, now, and I'm thankful I've survived. I'm thankful to myself for having the strength to reach for life, even when all I wanted to do was quit and cease to exist. I'm thankful for the wisdom to know I would be glad I made it through, even when I was screaming in my car so no one else would know. I'm especially thankful for my friends for reaching out when I most needed it and trying to help me through. I will never forget it.

I love you all so much. I'm thankful to my fans. Manyof my friends and family helped to save my life. But writing saved my sanity. I threw myself into my writing and my blogs. It took up all my time and provided a chance to heal. It also gave me a place to express myself in creative and healing ways. Her Broken Wings Could Fly is allowings me to do so with a out censor. Thank you for putting up with me when I hit a wall and didn't update my blogs:) You all are the greatest.

 Most of all I'm thankful for the divine--How could anyone ever question all the help we truly get. It is the reason we make it through. It's in the soft petal of a flower, the sun's rays upon the damp earth, the ocean's waves upon the sandy beach, and the crest of the mountain top. We are loved. May we always have some place inside that knows it, even when we're in our darkest hour. And so I say I'm grateful mother. I am your daughter, and I am grateful mother. And I love you so.

Raw Food Coach and Master Cleanse

Looking for a way to eat better, but you can't figure out what to eat if you go raw? Follow the Raw Food Coach, Karen Knowler, on Youtube. She teaches some great recipes and takes the guess work out of what to do. I'm also working towards following the Master Cleanse on Youtube. I've been drinking the Master Cleanse, but I have not gone completely on it so I'm not using the complete maple syrup yet. You will take in 1200 calories when you follow it. The pure grade B maple syrup does not raise your sugar level, from what I'm reading, the way that sugar and honey do, so you can cleanse for up to 40 days. I've been following a woman who started out with a 10 day cleanse and ended up doing the complete 40. She looked fantastic when she finished. Her skin was glowing, and you could actually see the energy shift over the updates she gave. I'm making sure I won't get sick by preparing for it. I sip on the lemon/maple syrup drink over the course of the day. I eat very little if at all, and I eat a steamed rice mix in the evening. When I'm done with the Master Cleanse, I'm considering going completely raw foods only.

I would not cut anything out of the Master Cleanse if you do it. All the things that are listed are there for a reason. I didn't need to do the full salt bath cleansing for 5 days since I've been eating so clean that when I took the first salt bath cleanse, nothing at all happened.

But the salt bath cleanse is there to keep the toxins from making you sick when they cut loose from your body, and the cayenne is there to cleanse your blood. I love the cayenne, so I'm able to tolerate quite a bit of it. I am using a 1/4 teaspoon and working up to a 1/2 teaspoon.

I would like to point out to make sure you check with your doctor before approaching the cleanse, especially if you take medicines, since cleansing has been known to cleanse your meds quickly out of your body too.


I'm staying on task:) I use the chairs and a broom stick to do my reverse pushups, the way Charlie James used to before she got her stand. I'm working on making some bigger sand balls and sand bags. I love working out to Charlie James. You see quick results:)

My goal is to join her group:)

Getting in shape with Charlie James!

It took me awhile, especially with some of the bad things that happened to me after this post. But I'm on target and I've been doing my routines at least a few times a week. I made two balls with sand. One is 15 lbs and one is 20 lbs. I've made her sandbag. And I use an interval timer online. Look for the link on the side of this blog. Follow me as I Shape Me Sexy!!:) I'll have some pictures up soon:)
