Roses for Wednesday
I noticed on some of the art-poster sites where you can get paintings for your slide shows and blogs, websites, etc. that there is also
a little "print" icon. This means, I suppose, that it is apparently alright to print these things, for your own use. (I'm always worried about copyright) This is called "Pink and Yellow Roses" from Allposters. .
To add to the previous article about moods: I've heard the common expression that people have "good days and bad days," and of course, we all realize that life is part good and part bad. However I think we can exert a great deal more control over moods, because our days can be good or bad depending upon what we put into them, and how we handle the wind and the waves that come our way. As I said in the online homemaking conference, when we are faced with insurmountable duties, we can either have a break down or we can roll up our sleeves and tackle whatever needs to be done. If you are alone, a breakdown doesn't seem so harmful, but if you have other people around, depending on your leadership, you might, like many of our forebearers, have to put on a stiff upper lip. When my daughter gets overwhelmed by housework, she calls me on her cell phone (her husband got her a head set so she could use her hands while phoning), and we talk each other through some of these messes. The tasks seem to go faster when you are talking to someone!

You can also sign up for the newsletter, which keeps you updated on the things to avoid that are dangerous to your physical and emotional health. Keep in mind that there is a big difference between "medical" care and HEALTH care. Good health will have a great deal to do with the emotions, and involves things like adequate rest, food as close to nature as possible, peaceful living, good water, and many other things. These kinds of things do not require insurance or a great deal of money.
(Note: in reading Dr. M.'s articles, be aware that he often starts with an article about conventional medicine at the beginning of the page, and then posts his comments afterwards. You might end up thinking he agrees with a lot of the liberal views in the medical articles, but read the entire page and you will see how he refutes some of these claims.)
