Your Best Life and O You!

Hi Neighbors!

Are you living your life to be the best you can be?  Are you encouraging your family to be the best they can be?  What goals do you have set for yourself and your family?

As many of my neighbors know, I found out just a little over a year ago that I am diabetic.  Since that time I have had to make some major changes in my life.  I have had to completely revise my eating habits and start exercising on a regular basis.  I have to say, this is one area in my life that was truly lacking.  I think the hardest thing I had to do was give up my sweet tea.  Being a Southern girl, I used to drink my tea super sweet.  I completely stopped white sugar and strictly count carbs.  By doing this, I was able to get off my medication completely within about 6 weeks.  I still have a long way to go, but I am steadily working towards a goal.  Yes, there are times when I am ready to quit, but I know for my health I need to keep on.  This is one of my goals!

Living the busy life we live between, raising our children, ministry work, and just plain being a wife and mother I had to also to make schedule changes.  My morning time with the Lord and reading the Bible are very special to me.  I feel that this is an important part of my life and plays a major part in who I am.  Because of this, I am raising my children to spend time with the Lord and strive to be the best that they can be. Each one of them has experienced different facets of the ministry, from ministering on the streets, nursing homes and even prison ministry.  Another one of the goals in my life!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
