I've been wanting to read this book since this youtube video came out. Every time someone forwards it to me I cry. So when I was in the bookstore the other day Katrina Kennison's book jumped right out at me. The title alone would make me want to read it even without seeing the video. I'm halfway through and love it. I've laughted and cried and read some aloud to the kids yesterday. Do you highlight or mark favorite passages in your books? One of my favorite quotes..so far..is this.."If motherhood has taught me anything, it is that I cannot change my children, I can only change myself". And then there is this quote that she includes by poet Kahlil Gibran..." Your children are not your children, they are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you." That's one I should frame and keep within sight.
I cherish my ordinary days.
And some more cleanse questions answered! My kids are not doing this. I'm on the full cleanse (if you don't count last Saturday night's pizza/wine or last nights wine :)
Steve is on a partial cleanse...kids are eating normal kid stuff.
Yes, it's the Martha 28 day detox that I'm following. I've always been a fan of her recipes so I figured these would measure up and they have. Here is a link to her site. We love the soups from Week 1...I think they're called 2 bean vegetarian chili which could not have been easier to make and then Almond chicken soup was delish! I'll continue to make them even after the cleanse.
