Finished out my first week at my new job and I love it so far! How cool is it to be able to help people, pray with them, dress up in frillies and get paid to do it?! Not only that but I get to take a nap on my lunch break! Sweet!
Of course, enjoying my job does not negate the dream that I have to be a stay-at-home mom. I get a little pang of envy speaking with other women who have this opportunity but I'm doing my best to not let that make me bitter. I am where I am for such a time as this. I believe God's plan is for my and my family's good and it far exceeds my hopes and dreams! So, I will choose to be happy with where God has me because I know I will learn lessons along the way that shape and form me into the person God has in mind.
I attended a doTERRA leadership training all day yesterday...great info and I like what I see and am experiencing with the essential oils. We learned from one of the presenters' personal family experience about a blend of oils that is showing signs of correcting scoliosis (which is actually caused by a virus in the spine). In other words, kill the virus and the spine can self-correct, which shouldn't be surprising because the body was designed by God to heal itself. The presenter's son has had success with this blend of oils just since October 2010 and is now 98% pain free!!
I have had two different forms of scoliosis most of my life (my parents first took me to a chiropractor around age 12). I've been told by multiple doctors and chiropractors that it was something I would just have to deal with the rest of my life. Despite constant (multiple times per week) maintenance, it has gradually worsened over the years to the point that it is reeking havoc on the rest of my body: chronic dislocation of my collar bone, ribs and hip, as well as the main cause of extreme overall bodily pain, headaches, general structural problems, stomach/digestive issues, lung problems, gradual lack of flexibility, etc. My chiropractor has said many times that he is concerned at the rate my scoliosis' are progressing at my age.
So, needless to say, I look forward to trying this blend of oils and experiencing success! I have no reason to believe it won't work. If I target the root cause of the issue (i.e. virus in the spinal column), whose to say I would have to put up with daily physical pain for the rest of my life?! I have tried everything else with no success and I refuse to believe that this is something I can do nothing about.
Our new home is coming along nicely. I haven't posted any recent pictures because everything is a bit of a mess just now...a good mess. Our appliances are all moved in. Most of the baseboards are installed. Now, we just have to finish unloading the moving van and get things organized. I'll be cleaning this house of the saw dust and dirt for months. lol I hope we can get moved in this week and will post more pics as we get settled.
My son is growing like crazy. I just got him signed up with his speech therapy so he should begin that soon. He is jabbering so much more but most of it is unintelligible. He's sleeping in his own bed most of the time now so that is a huge success. The other morning, I woke up to him asleep next to me and his arm around my neck...I must admit that I do love that! :O) He's got such a sweet, life-loving personality that is infectious.
Well, I'm off to try to be productive this afternoon. lol
