Simple Things

Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.
— Hippocrates

Today, I started my day soaking up the early morning sunshine and listening to a guided visualization that put me in a beautiful, positive frame of mind.  Now, I find a whole day has gone by and I'm sitting here with candles glowing and lightning sizzling across a dark night sky.  It's so lovely. 

There really is a lot we can do to change our lives for the better.  Simple things that promote health in body, mind and spirit.  I never realized just how profound an effect the things I put into my mouth and my mind can have on the health... on the healing of my body.  I am learning.

Tonight, I made a salad full of so many wonderful things.  I really didn't think the kids would eat it but they ended up asking for seconds and then thirds.  It was such a nice dinner and we felt energized afterward, not lethargic and sleepy.  My son shared a beautiful piece of music with me and we listened to it together during dinner.  Simple things...  such a gift.

Big sigh.*
