I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~ e.e. cummings

Joy Scale: 9/10

Being close to nature is very healing. This morning out in my back garden as I called in my directions, this is what I noticed; the call of the birds, the soft wind on my cheek, the tap tap of a woodpecker, the bright colors of the flowers, the rustle of Aspen leaves, the green grass dotted with white clover, the earthy smell, the trickle of the fountain, the blue sky with white puffy clouds. Thank you God for this day, this life and all the people in m life!

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" ~William A. Ward

Gratitude is addictive once you start being grateful. There is so much in our lives to be grateful for. Here are a some things I am grateful for: my husband, my parents, my daughters, my sister and her family, my brother, my friends, my pets, our bungalow, my gardens, the birds that wake me each morning and TODAY.
Count your blessings, you will be amazed once you get going how much good God has provided in your lives.

~Paul Boese

I found my thoughts turning towards forgiveness this morning as I sat on the patio writing out my forgiveness homework. Forgiving is truly healing. What I have found is when I forgive a person a sense of peace fills me up. I highly recommend giving forgiveness a try!
Peace and love and light to you all.

More of My Fibromyalgia Journey - B.E.S.T. is best

In the spring of 2007 my friend Hope found a different kind of chiropractor, Dr. Brenda Borst in Yellow Springs, OH. One who doesn't do physical chiropractic adjustments, she does mental adjustments. Her treatment is called B.E.S.T.(Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique).
I really can't describe the technique, so to help understand it better, here is the BEST website.http://www.morter.com/what_is_best.php. BEST is available all around the USA. If you live near Yellow Springs and want to try BEST I think can still get you a $90 certificate to try it. BEST, does work, I don't know how it works, but it does work. At first, I went weekly and now I go every 2 months for a tune-up. Somehow Dr. Borst reads your body and finds out what needs work. She asks questions, checks your strength using kineseology when you answer the questions, checks your hips and legs, balances your pulses, has you say a wonderful affirmation("I am worthy of unconditional love and perfect health") and I forget what else. I haven't needed any big tune-ups for over a year, so I haven't had the whole shebang for a while. Dr. Borst is gifted at reading the body and she is such a caring person. I call BEST witch doctor woo woo stuff(I'm mostly joking). But seriously!!! it does work. It helped to balance me when my Fibromyalgia was really bad. Now it keeps me in a good place.
