Time for Change

The only thing that remains constant is change. Or at least that’s what I’ve always been told. Here in Alabama, spring is in the air. I can almost smell the chocolate Easter candy! (oops did you give up chocolate for Lent?! sorry!) The kids are wanting to stay outside to plan a garden in the afternoons, or play baseball, or even just to hang out. I can’t blame them with the warm breezy days.

For me the world is covered in pollen! So I stay inside a lot, but its hard to resist being out in this great sunshine we are having, or sitting out on the back porch with one of the spring showers we get a lot of days. Don’t you love spring showers?!

Anyways, with Spring upon us here I’ve gotten to thinking about doing a lot of changing. Growing. I gave up stress for Lent. You know what, I didn’t think I could do it. Especially with one kid getting hurt at school and requiring emergency dentist and hospital trips. That was a pretty stressful day, but you know I stayed in control and tried to laugh at the folly of it all. I think that I did pretty well.

Growing. We are wanting to move our garden this year. The kids are preparing a tomato bed. Using composted hay and cow manure must be quite fun for the 10 year old daughter and 12 year old son. They’d rather play with that in the afternoons than watch TV! Amazing huh?! As for me, I’d really like to try to do a raised bed this year. But we are just in the planning stages right now. I’m trying to find some old lumber so that I don’t put a lot of money into it, because if we like it I can add to it next year right?

Moving. For about a year I have really tried to move. As a family we all fought a move out of state, but for me I thought it would be best. I didn’t want to change. I really didn’t want to. I even tried to start a new blog. It just doesn’t work. So I’m in the process of changing this blog to something that I love and moving the new content from the newer blog here. Changes are something that I don’t like. Especially when I haven’t thought everything through. And believe me I’ve been thinking about this for 6 months. Just coming back to where I began. Well not really…I began several blogs, but this is home. So you will start to see a lot of changes here.

Learning. I have so many things that I’m learning about right now. I’m learning and teaching about essential oils. I can’t tell you how much I love these oils! I’m learning about how to use oils for more than just making the house smell good when I clean, which is all I really knew they were good for.

Teaching. Teaching my family and friends and just about anyone who will listen (or read) about how to use oils for things like migraines, allergies, skin conditions, ear infections, pink eye, etc…Really I could go on and on. I promise I will be teaching you these things if you are willing to listen er..read. In fact, I’m finishing up an e-book on how to use essential oils for migraines. Its been a life changer for not only myself but for my whole family.

Is it time for changes in your life? Do you feel the start of spring and think that its time to turn over a new leaf? I can’t wait to hear what changes you are making!


  1. I am going through the same thing, cleaning out, redesigning, starting over 🙂 I kind of stopped blogging for a while as I was trying to finish school but I really missed it, so like you I am going "back to my roots". The pollen is terrible everywhere right now, but in Alabama its so hot already that it makes it that much worse! Hope your family is doing well, and I will be checking back frequently for tips and just to see what is going on your way 🙂
    I like the new look so far!
