It's been a very humbling day. I went to several meetings this morning. While at one of them I learned of a child that was recently run over by her mother, I gasped in unbelief - I was literally nauseous. I can't even imagine the pain and agony the poor mother must be going through. Then a good friend of mine told me she was having family troubles, and my heart went out to her. After I talked with her I ran into another good friend that I haven't seen in sometime, and she told me her ex-husband recently committed suicide, I hugged her as she cried on my shoulder. I wish I could help them all and remove their pains and sadness. Hearing all of the heartache today made me sincerely grateful for all that I have been blessed with. I've been really stressed over our spec home, but in the end its just money. I have a loving husband and healthy, happy children. Today's been a day for self reflection and deep appreciation for my life.

Life is so interesting each day teaches us new lessons. Lessons of love, lessons of patience and understanding, lessons of forgiveness and lessons of trusting life. Tonight I'm going to spend the evening cuddling my children and appreciating all that they are in my life. Life truly is too short not to appreciate all that we have been blessed with. I pray that everyone in the world that is morning over the loss of loved ones are truly comforted by Heavenly Father.

This was a day that I will not soon forget I'm sure...

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
