I received my doTerra Essential oil kit this past week and so far I'm a believer in the lavender oil. I have always, always loved the smell of lavender but didn't know that pure lavender oil was an inducer of sleep and calmness. I go to sleep in a jiffy but often wake up between 1:00-2:00AM and am wakeful for a couple of hours. Well, I started using the oil about 4 nights ago and I've enjoyed some solid sleep. I've just rubbed one drop on the bottom of each foot, inside my wrists and a couple of drops on my pillowcase. Easy peasy for sure! The other oil I have used is the lemon oil and I add two drops to one of my many glasses of water as a detoxification for my body.(notice I said I only add it to one of my glasses, my doTerra advisor said you do not want to overuse it) I used the frankincense to help heal a scratch on my ankle. That's the only 3 I have used thus far but I'm looking forward to using the others as I have need of them. And, only time will tell if I feel they are worth using but I'm off to a good impression thus far.
Today is my sweet Dad's 86th birthday. I am still amazed that he has lived to see 86 years. The Lord did an absolute miracle in restoring him following his being stricken with GBS 4 years ago. He definitely has residual effects but for the most part he is doing well. We took him out to eat Mexican food this past weekend and the wait staff celebrated him by donning him with the sombero and singing happy birthday to him. Just an added note: you would not even want to know how old the denim cap and vest is that he is wearing in these photos. He loves them both and I suppose when you get his age that you can just plain wear whatever your heart desires regardless of what you daughter thinks about it. ~chuckle~ My precious Mom likely rolls over in her grave each and every time he wears these.
All I can say is that we certainly did our part to pull out a win but it was just not meant to be. But, believe it or not, the sun came up yesterday morning anyway. I'm so glad that it's "just" a football game.
A Thanksgiving thought for the week.........
