My Sweeet Babbo

Sunday will make the 3 anniversary of me being married to my sweet baboo. My Sweet Baboo  is a very understanding, loving, generous, good man.  I know that what we have works because of who he is.  And while he is most definitely a very manly man, masculine- he is willing to do whatever it takes to help me-even do housework! He is my best friend and knows how to make me laugh when no one else can.

It took me awhile to truly trust him.  I had issues and on top of that, my issues had baggage.  Was I screwed up? You bet.  To say I was skittish is a major understatement.  I had scars and scares and fears and freak outs I needed to get rid of.  It took me almost ten years to agree to marry him because I was so skittish. And over the years, his patience and unwavering, unconditional love helped me heal.  And chocolate.  He knows I love almost anything chocolate!

Consistent, constant, unwavering, unconditional, total, complete, and a totally passionate love.  That is what he gives me.  Though he is not perfect I believe that he gives me a great example of the Father's love.

Sometimes I look at him and am blown away by this man.  He is a gift from God just for me.   He believes in me, my talents, and abilities. He wants me to thrive.  He loves me, totally.

I think both of us have to be a crazy.  It takes a crazy person to move in with another person and develop a life-time relationship with someone who is so absolutely totally opposite of oneself and to expect it to work!

 Sweet Baboo's  expressions of love still astound me.   Truly, he makes it very easy to love him and he makes it fun to share this life with.

He just flat out loves me.  ME!  He LOVES me.  He loves ME.  HE loves me.  Wow.!

 Happy Anniversary my Sweet Baboo! May we have many more years together.

little used wonder cure?

Last Tuesday I started feeling awful. By noon I had a headache, runny nose and a ear ache. Darn summer allergies! A friend of mine suggested that I continue to use my netti pot and drink some apple cider vinegar to clear up my sinus infection. Apple Cider vinegar I though! That's gross! Okay, it's not gross and I use it for lots of things around the house. However, the smell is awful!!  I don't like going to the doctor though and it always take so long to get in so I decided to give the apple cider vinegar a try. And by the end of the day my sinsus were drying up! I couldn't believe it! All I did was take 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water 3 times that day. Here are some other things that apple cider vinegar are good for:
  • Prevents bladder stones and urinary tract infections
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • weight loss
  • Balance high cholesterol
  • Improve digestion and cure constipation
As will all things do your homework before you being using apple cider vinegar.  Are their any natural remedies you swear by?

Book Review: Allon Book 3 Heir Apparent

About the Book:
After a resounding defeat at the and of King Ellis' forces, Emperor Kamu of Moroven sends and ambassador to Allon offering a royal marriage between one of his daughters, Princess Kaleana, and sixteen-year-old Prince Nigel. 

Kaleana gives Nigel a jade statue as a gift of goodwill. Avatar, Nigel's Guardian Overseer, reacts with hostility to the foreign statue and urges him to get rid of it. but his warning has little effect on the smitten prince. Soon, strage things start happening: unknown creatures appear, mysterous stones are discovered, and every event threatens thte lives of the royal family.

Avatar is convinced the jade statue is the sorce of the trouble. For Nigel, each incident intensifies a secret disturbance-nightmares that haunt him about his future. Where does the connection lie-in Nigel's nightmares or is everything the result of revenge disguised as a dowry?

My Review
 The third book in the Allon series is my favorite book in the series so far.  It deals with coming of age and having trying to find the balance between being who you are and becoming an adult. I totally identify with Tristine. I too was a tomboy growing up and ad a hard time butting my tom-boyishness aside when I grew up.  The surprise twist in the story totally caught me off guard! I can't tell you anymore or I'll give it away.
The book also deals with family laying asside their differnces and coming together when tragedy strikes. 
Heir apparent is a wonderfuler light read filled with action and adventure. Once you get started reading you won't be able to put it down.  I can't wait to get my hands on book four!
 You can read my reviews of book one and book two here

More Than Coincidence?

Last Tuesday started out liike any other day. I was on the treadmill at the gym when a blurb ran across the screen mentioning an earthquake in Colorado. Weird I thought. They don't typically have earthquakes. Later on I was at my churches Women's Bible study and we read started reading Isaiah 24. In it the author (Isaiah)  is talking about a comeing destruction that no one can escape. Then that afternoon there was an earthquake in Virginia. Another rareity. In 2011 so far we have 26 recorded earthquakes world wide. In addition we have had hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, tornados, droughts and just about every other natural disaster immaginable. Do you think this is all mere concidence? I think not.  The purpose of Jesus telling us of the increase in natural dissasters happening just prior to His return was to prepare us so that we would not be caught off guard.
The Lord is not willing that any person should perish, but that all men would have an opportunity to obtain salvation and eternal life. For this reason, the prediction of and the fulfillment of natural disasters has the purpose of bringing man into an awareness of the God . That He has power over the natural elements of the Universe and often uses them to speak to man of His existence and ability to control the events of human existence.
 My we all be prepared.
