Blissed & Blessed

One of the things that I love about this raw food journey is the people that I meet on the way!

When God created the sun, and the plants and trees to give food to us, I believe He did it with more love than we can imagine! When we eat of that fresh, God given food, full of nutrients, I feel that love. Maybe part of it is that my body has become more alkaline, which doesn't hurt either, lol.

I have recieved so much love from friends that I have met on this journey. Every day I am surrounded by well wishes, smiles, hugs and support. Thank you friends, you know who you are! (Most of them are on Twitter- A group instant messenger type thingy. Ask me about it if you're interested...) We talk daily and encourage each other to be the best we can be. We share recipes and tips, as well as sites of interest and life's ups & downs.

I want to send a special shout out to some amazing folks who have gone above & beyond the line of duty into the realm of love!

Penni @ Penny was one of the first friends that I made in the raw community. We were talking about various different things, and she mentioned that her house smelled SO good because she had a load of granola in the dehydrator. I drooled, lol, and she mailed me a big pack of it! I was in a state of bliss! :D I hope that we can get together soon as we're ONLY 8 hours from one another!

Bethany @ trying to stop drinking coffee. She suggested Mate tea, so I went everywhere looking for it & Bethany and I were co-miserating about could not find it anywhere locally. So she sent me a big bag (I'm STILL drinking that one! ) Then she sent me a great almond milk recipe to add to the mate to make it a mate latte! Yeah baby! Now we're talking! I rarely drink coffee now, and I owe it to Bethany~lilgirlbigvoice... Hopefully we will meet in person next month when I will be taking William to Camp Hanes. Fun times!

Kellie @ I just 'met' Kellie not too very long ago. We cut up and chatter around on twitter, and generally have a great time, but when I asked everybody on there which 'raw' book I should buy first, she told me to wait. Today I got a very nice package in the mail! I am almost speechless! (That would make things difficult, considering I'm posting this blog, lol) She sent me a raw book, 2 DVD's and 3 Larabars! Score! To top it off, she took the time out of moving to send it!

*Special mention & thanks goes out to Helene Laurence for this message I recieved from her today: "Sent you my favorite uncook book via amazon, you should have it by end of next week! please enjoy it as much as I have!" See what I mean!

Thank you guys so much! You are rawsome! You rawk! :D hehe

The funny thing is that my phone going *ding* has annoyed my family at times and they have said that those friends aren't real. I just always say... "Oh! Somebody loves me!"
