So... a good bit of June/July was devoted to nursing my family through chickenpox (first and second round). This was great timing with school out, and we wanted the kids to go ahead and get it while young. My four year old had it first, and to her it was really not a big deal at all. With the help of homeopathic and herbal remedies she actually didn't find it itchy (wow). Two weeks later things got a bit more uncomfortable when the seven year old followed by the 41 year old got the pox. I'm so thankful to plant medicines for seeing us through. From fever and itching to preventing scarring and shortening duration of the illness natural remedies made a HUGE difference! ALL BETTER!
Here's a brief homage to my dad...
No, he may not have the healthiest diet...thanks for staying on that, Mom.
No, he won't try half the teas or "witchy potions" I try to shove down him.
For the love of Pete...he will NOT try goat milk.
My dad taught me some very important lessons early on about being WELL..
My dad has been an active man all my life; I'd go so far as to say adventurous. He taught me how to tackle a challenge with an equal balance of confidence and humility. And he taught me to always do my best, regardless of the circumstances.
No one can tell a funny story like Papa Jim.
Here I am launching into a new challenge (literally launching the site) on Father's Day and I know no one will be prouder than my pop.
I love you.
