I am grateful

Saturday, August 01, 2009

I was reading one of the post on the high blood pressure page, when I noticed the signature of one of the comments was from Buddha. Basically it said be thankful for what you have cause you are not yet dead. Later this morning as I sat watching the fog retreat over the far mountain top, I could only say thank you, thank you, thank you. I am surrounded by the wonderfulness of nature and growing things. I believe "I am healthy, wealthy, healed and whole and I am blessed". I have everything I need to be happy; love, food, shelter, and energy.

As I continue to change my life style I reap the rewards. I have found many useful tools on and many beautiful people. As a result my blood pressure is decreasing, pain in my knees decrease as I lose weight and I am happier.

    Your blog expresses your peacefulness and the gratitude you feel for your awareness of your surroundings. That along with healthy eating and exercising will lower your blood pressure.
Keep up the great work you are doing for yourself!

Shopping in my closet

Sunday, July 26, 2009

Today I tried on a pair of pants size large and if I didn't mind wearing tight cloths I could have worn them. I not only got them over my hips I could button them.

Nervous ninny

Friday, May 22, 2009

Today I am getting ready for my first show. I have sold my photos at fairs and on the internet, but today I am going to the preview of my photo being hung in a gallery. The feeling is heady, and I feel weak in the knees, and just a little proud. I know I will be a surprise to some who are coming they have not seen me since I've become healthy.

The only down side is I have nothing to wear. All my dress cloths were size 2 X, now I have to go back in the storage room to find a size 16. I will give the large sizes away next week and go shopping in my storage closet for now. emoticon

Thank you to food

Monday, March 09, 2009

Dear Food,

I want to thank you for the meditation, entertainment, and nourishment you provide to me. You reinforce for me the power of spirituality in the giving of your life for mine. As I prepare your fruits, and herbs for cooking, I meditate on the life experiences of your growth. I am amazed by the texture, color, and smell of you. I image were you were grown and how you were cared for and loved. I have come to know your distinctive flavors and the delicate flavors you impart to a dish. I meditate as I stir, combine, baste, and check you along the way.

Let me thank you for the entertainment you provide me. I find entertainment in the combining of the ingredients and watching the chemical transformation take place on my stove, wok, or oven. The chemistry of cooking has always fascinated and entertained me. Why to much of one or the other can spoil the meal; or what combines with what to make the flavors just a little off. The final entertainment of the meal is the actual eating and enjoying the fresh flavors and smells. To sit with family and friends and partake of food you have prepared with love is the ultimate of pleasures.

And lastly, let me thank you for the nourishment of my body. For without you I could not carry on. I thank you all that you do for me. I pledge to continue to select food mindfully and with gratitude for those who continue to grow you with love, organic farmers and ranchers.

Thank you,
With love and gratitude,
