Talking to some family members at a recent family reunion,I was able to piece together some clues into myself.My food addiction being at the top of the list.My dad's mama was skinny and was ridiculed her lifetime.I was the same way so she decided to fatten me up so I wouldn't be ridiculed.It didn't work but she was determined every summer to make my life a living hell,not purposely though.Several of her grandkids came to spend the summer and they accused me of being her PET.She was tireless in her endeavor to fatten me up.My plate at mealtime would be heaped with food and sides of cake,pie,cookies.I literally hid from her!Grams was obsessed with making me gain weight.Fried chicken,Pork chops,steak,potaoes,dumplings,yeast rolls,cake,cobbler,icecream and fudge were a daily buffet.I was singled out and picked on tirelessly by my cousins.I spent a lot of time crying and staying as invisible as possible.My Aunt said that my great and great-great grandmothers were morbidly obese.They passed down their pain through grams and made her feel like she wasn't like them.She was skinny but healthy.She didn't want me to feel the way they made her feel!I lost out on time with her because of it.Some point in my head I made a connection that I needed to gain weight in order to be accepted.Does any of this make sense?
My aunts and cousins sat me down and explained it and it finally made sense to me. SUSAN

I always try to do my share once a week at my favorite place,the no-kill animal shelter.They are so happy when I bring in dog/cat/bird/etc.food/litter and blankets.I walk the tame ones and brush fur,help with baths and adoptions.Someone dropped off a pot belly pig named Sally and she keeps the place lively.A rat named Rufus and a blue-jay called Hellen that was a baby when she came in.When I make it home im exhausted in body and spirit.Did you know that about 60% of the animals are spur of the moment/kids begging mom and dad for a pet that's either too barky or large when it grows up?They just so happen to be cute,cuddly,soft and darling to pass up?I beg anyone ready to get a pet to think it through.They should be your forever pet and loved as such SUSAN

I was making a honey orange ACV drink a few years ago and drinking it daily.It cleared up my skin from acne,soothed sunburn,cleared my dandruff and also soothed my tired feet.My allergies were awful before this wonderful vinegar came into my life.I stopped using it which was crazy. Recently,My DH came home with some ACV made by Heinz(with The mother)and handed it to me for my sunburn.My allergies are almost gone and my gut feels awesome. Have any of you been fans of ACV?If so please give your opinions SUSAN
PS...2 cups of water,2tbsp ACV,2 pkgs stevia,honey to taste or 3 tsp,about 1 cup of orange juice,mix well and enjoy!!

In many ways my mother comes out in me.I inherited her calm,soft spoken,sweet,loving,nature.I love to laugh!I believe it can heal many things.I love reading,cooking,flowers,gardening and animals.She could walk up to me and tell me what was on my mind.I am the same way!My kids never could lie to me.She loved going to Wal Mart.Not just to shop but to see all the"crazies"she called them.I wait until I'm out of everything before I will go to Wal Mart.I actually went today(DH usually drags me there)There was a Santa Claus look-a-like in there with the shortest shorts I've ever seen on a man.To top that off there was a young woman wearing a see through gauze dress with NO panties or bra on.She bent over right in front of me and showed me her BUTT!! I told her that her dress rode up and she just shrugged.When I was finished and paid for my veggies,I was going to my car when An older man walked up and asked for money.He held up a sign that read deaf/mute please help.I said,No not today buddy!As I was walking away he muttered"BITCH!" I laughed and said "He Speaks" SUSAN
