Health Food | Whole Food
Do you struggle sometimes with eating the wrong things ? Or just eating too much?

I struggle with this all.the.time.  Think just because I have a whole foods blog that it is always easy for me to make the right choices?

Think again.

Anyone else out there like this?  I’ve never understood those women who say, “I just don’t remember to eat sometimes.  I’m too busy taking care of my kids!”

I basically want to eat healthy, but I need all of the help and motivation that I can get.

Join me today over at The Better Mom where I will hopefully give you some motivation to either make some healthier eating choices, or keep on making the good choices that you have already put in place.

You’ll learn a bit about me and you’ll see why I was so convicted when I started writing this post…

See you there :-)!

The Best Mother’s Day Present Ever

Mothers Day Present Gift

What gift did I receive for Mother’s Day?

A bouquet of flowers?  A card from my children?  A day of being served by my family?  A sweet treat?

Yes, to each of these.

But none of them happened in the way that I had planned.  Maybe that’s the best way.  Or maybe it’s just what I needed.

God likes to catch us off guard and remind us, once again, that we are not in charge.

Here are a few snapshots of my unexpected Mother’s Day gifts.  (Hint:  You’ll want to read to the end–)
