Thought I would share

Friday, March 01, 2013

Went I went to the Chili Festival this year and was visiting all the booths and art and such, I came across this lady who is doing a wonderful thing and had an interesting story. She is working with women in prison to build dolls after she herself was wrongfully imprisoned. She was a very nice lady and so dedicated to her cause. I bought a fun doll to give our granddaughter after her dance recital June 1st. The doll I bought looks like a dancer. Anyway here are photos of the doll and a link to the story of this remarkable woman. I believe you can even buy her dolls on line.

Here is the link to their web site

On another note, I am feeling great after cutting out "night shade" veggies, in particular the two cups of tomatoes I would eat everyday. I do miss them but not the foggy feeling I believe they were giving me and I believe my arthritis is not as painful. I wish I had researched this long ago and knew about the effect these types of veggies might have on me. It's great having good energy again. I also contribute my feeling of wellness to the Hemp Protein my homeopathic doc recommended. I am adding that to my protein drink every morning.

Hope all my sparks buddies have a terrific day!

    I love the fact that you research the effects of certain fruits, veggies, etc. I've discovered certain foods will give me stomach aches, headaches, fatigue, I could go on and on! Some processed foods will do worse! I wish more people become aware of what they're ingesting!
    Thanks for sharing the info on the dolls, Sallie! D & I support efforts like this. I'm going to check them out for my Granddaughter.

    What a lovely doll for your granddaughter. Thank you for sharing the link.
    Isn't it great how good we feel when we eat right? My joints are doing so much better since I started the Plan (had tomatoes once in the last 6 weeks) and yoga is now an option rather than a necessity to get moving first thing.
    No more "snap, crackle and pop"!

    Yeah, Sallie! Still fine-tuning your food intake for optimal results emoticon I believe we always profit from taking that initiative. I take a powdered protein, too (Designer Whey - I like the calorie count :) but might try the hemp variety someday soon. Thanks for the heads-up!

    You're a sweetie for buying one of those gorgeous dolls. That woman's wonderful, sweet heart just shines from the doll's eyes, too - so good of you to provide us with the link!
