Thank you friends for all your words of encouragement. I feel so blessed to have you all in our life. I took a little 2 day sabbatical for the purpose of devoting my attentions to my Luver. He came for 2 days and it so livened my spirit. I have been a little emotional. I Love him. Last night we had the opportunity to watch the 2 little boys that have combated type 1 and 2 Diabetes (ages 7 and 12). They were so amazing for such little guys; so well behaved. I asked them if they were glad they got to eat all this healthy stuff, and they energetically said,"Oh yes!" And these boys eat veggies for breakfast! They were such an inspiration to me and CharLee. Because of their brave example, CharLee agreed to have his blood tested. It was amazing. When I saw his blood, it confirmed all the feelings I have been having about his health. It was so good for him. At the end of Grandpa Dr's shpill, CharLee tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Grandpa, I'm going to try this out the best I can." I know this will be hard for him, but now he has his own little memory and motivation after seeing his own "CharLee blood show." I also had the opportunity to talk with the couple from Kenya. The husband just received his blood test results back. After about 3 weeks of this program his Prostate cancer is gone. I just feel so grateful. Grateful that a loving Father in Heaven has given me a family in which I and my family need dearly. I am also grateful and proud of my Father for standing up for what he believes even though it brought really tough times; it has blessed so many lives including my own. I feel honored to be around these people again. I just hope I can do all I need to, to help my own family's situation. Even I feel inadaquate at times and I was pretty much raised like this. It can feel overwhelming. . . .but we are on board to do the best we can. And maybe in the end it can bless others to feel motivated. Here's to another blessed day.

Feeling really good and plenty of energy considering i havn't slept in two nights with the kids not feeling so great. I have really enjoyed the connections i have made here. Meeting people with such pure hearts and hope is so refreshing to be surrounded by. It makes me want to do a little better and try a little harder. This morning I turned open my scriptures and started reading; it was in 3rd Nephi and it said,"I give unto you to be the salt of the earth; but if the salt shall lose its savor wherewith shall the earth be salted? The salt shall be thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Verily, Verily I say unto you , I give unto you to be the light of this people. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Behold, do men light a candle and put it under a bushel? Nay, but on a candlestick and it giveth light to all that are in the house. 16Therefore let your light so shine. . . "3 Nephi 12:13-16
Being here and going through this cleansing experience has affected me on so many levels and I feel such a deep gratitude to my Father for all his tender mercies he continues to extend to me and my family. After reading this scripture i felt it is now the desire of my Father to share my light to those who need it. . . so I will try not to be as timid. I feel I am shy because I was always seen as different or weird growing up, but now I understand Heavenly Father desires all his children to be Happy and be able to live Life to its fullest so we all can find and perform the work we are sent here to do. Maybe the whole economy crisis is to make us a more self sufficient and service oriented people. I am grateful, I will do my best.
So here's the Agenda for the Day:
-Wake up 7:45
-Take care and dress the babes
-Feed babes some Ezekial cereal with almond milk
-Vibraphirm 10 min and Kundalini yoga 1 hour
-Breakfast: spinach cucumber avocaco salad with good oils and l liter greens with 4 salts

-Golf cart ride with kids to calm little Beau and to pick Grapefruit in the vineyard with CharLee
-8 oz green juice (celery, cucumber, spinach) actually tastes so yummy!
-CharLee blood tests for health and allergies 4pm
-8 0z veggie juice
-Dinner (salad with sateed onions, scrambled tofu and eggplant with rich raw tomatoe sauce)
-1 liter greens
-7-8pm IV sodium bicarbonate to be specific
-Stretch and Breathing
-Scriptures and Prayers with Kids
-Give kids a little bath and some calming flower essence oils
-Hopefully off to bed, we are crossing our fingers the kids will slept sound tonight:)

I would have slept a bit better; however my little ones started up chucking. We have deducted it was probably the mixture of grilled cheese and apple fries with whip cream they scarfed at Lego Land. Not a typical lunch for them:) It is a bit funny that I am here trying to get all healthy while my babes are sick. I really hate when they don't feel well. Beau has started to skip around again so hopefully it's a quick thing. Last night Charlee had the opportunity to play with a little 8 year old boy with Type 1 diabetes who is on the property. It was cute because they looked like brothers, tall and lanky with big blue eyes. I feel it was also good for CharLee to see kids like himself who have physical weakness who can be so brave and determined to become well. I am very curious to see how the Nucca adjustments and dietary changes help little CharLee Bear. He is my sweet sensitive boy. And, uhm....havn't made it to the art thing quite yet. Didn't realize I would be so busy. Maybe next week things will slow down a bit.
So far the Agenda for Today is:
read scriptures and pray with my babes
1 liter greens
take care of my babes
broc and brussels and a bit of green shake for breakfast
1 liter greens
1:30 Lymphatic Massage at the Lucy House
Good Lunch probably salad and soup
3:00 IV therapy
1 liter greens
play with my babes, hopefully a little hammock laying in the avocado orchard if they feel up to it
5:00 some healthy dinner ( barley pattie with salad and celery/zucchini soup)
8:00 kids off to bed
1 liter greens
9:00 prayers read and Bed.
Bed really unfortunatley didn't come as early becuase the kids are still detoxing:)
I'm in Love with You Matthew.

Here we are, me and my children. We are in California. I am here not just merely for a routine visit with Popeye and Essa, but for a whole body cleanse and reboot. Yes, I am doing the real PH Miracle program. I feel really blessed. I had my blood tested by my Papa Dr. Young this morning. It was amazing to see my blood and to see everything I have been feeling was right there in the blood. Every weakness that I know can become strengthened with Faith, prayer and some TLC guidance from my Dad. I am now off to do 2 hours of IV therapy and emotional clearing. We shall see what comes. I just feel really at peace that I am where I need to be and find answers for me and my little family. I feel this will not only be a blessing to me but my family and many others. Maybe one day from my healing I can help others like myself and those mothers who have children find a little peace in knowing our life is lead and can be whole again. I am a witness of His miracles and His mercy.
I Love and miss you my Luv. Hope you got your little pillow note i left:)
I am going to attempt to start an Italian countryside oil painting while I am here for our bedroom. . . nothing like a little art therapy to hone the heart.

Lately Life has been a bit of a challenge, like many are facing. . . .economy crisis drama. I view the Luv become anxious on days and you think I would become worried. However, I do not feel anxious, I feel peace. Peace that Father knows what is best for us, peace that our path is lead. Last night I layed on the shag by the piano as Luv serenaded with some good old Josh Kadison "Beautiful in my Eyes" , and then this morning Luv came in from taking the pups potty and then crawled back into bed to snuggle and stroke my hair; this fizzles out any doubt, we will be okay. . . we have each other. That reassurance is all I need in this unpredictable world. When I am weak the Luv is my strength and when he feels the same, I am dido.

I will be posting this weekend, for now stay tuned..........It consisted of Whitney Lins return, homecoming, Blessing little Soren and a Valentines Family Night.

A snack that my kids love is Mana bread. You can find it at a health food store in the freezer section, or you can attempt to make it, if you love to sprout wheat. It is a sprouted loaf which tastes like a moist muffin, but so better for them. They especially love the date cinnamon flavor Yummmmmmmm!

This is a new type of Yoga I have been studying and I am in loooooooooooove with it. It is truly amazing. The breathe techniques are so intense and cleansing and after a workout you feel so much more open and alive! It also treats the body with such TLC, of which we mothers need with our hectic days............no need to be beating ourselves up, we get enough of that from the little ones. I highly recommend trying Ana Brit DVD series( I think there is 8 of them, and you can purchase them from Amazon for fairly cheap). There is some meditations of which you may or may not prefer, I like to do my own, but in most workouts you can customize them. Waking up and being able to exercises in a healing way, all while my baby plays beside me is perfect. You will love it.

Today we are going to put up our art deco stars we glittered up this morning when the Bear gets home from school. On Saturday , our Family worked real hard together to make the basement somewhat of an orderly space. CharLee and I turned the North corner into an imaginary play world. . . .no movies, no computers. . . just toys, books, and pure make believe. Our little stars should add the perfect touch in making the ceiling come to life. I always had my little spaces growing up where I could imagine I was anything, and with the winter and it being hard to play out in the cold, this will be the perfect place for the kids to run away into their Neverlands. Yes, the surroundings are just cement floor, wood beams and boxes, but to see what we created in the end was so fun. . . .CharLee said "Mom, I'm really going to have a Clubhouse of my very own!" Life feels so peaceful and complete when you see it in your babies eyes and have a little voice say, "This, is what your are here for. . ." I feel this is why a year ago I felt no longer connected to my career "work". It had nothing to do that it was good or helpful to me and others. I was tremendously blessed to work beside my loving husband and still do occasionally; I was however sacrificing my time and energy that could be fed to these types of learning teaching moments with my children. I tried to follow the spirit and went forward with faith that this was the right decision. I cherish these little simple treasures. I feel Peace.

Yummy snacks kids? CharLee looks thrilled.
CharLee still aspires to be a Chef, look at the presentation on this dish he made. (Oranges celery and almond butter.)
We spend many of our weekend evenings with a good flick and popcorn.
Fearless with the pups. She is the Alpha Animal.
Beau counts, 1-2 WEEEE! It was a fun brisk day at the baby park.
A tender moment (not captured very well), but still oh' so sweet! Sleeping Beauty is Beaus latest craze. CharLee endures the feisty princess.
Wide mouth Bass contest. Who do you think wins? And where did they get the genes?
