A Healthy Dose of Savings

I like saving money. I also like using things that are earth-friendly and good for me. A lot of times, those two ideas don't always go together. As much as I love using products that are all goodness, it can be really costly which can make it harder to use what I love. Slowly but surely, though, I have been able to find coupons for products that I feel much more comfortable using. It's just like anything else, you start by taking baby steps.

 Do you like saving money and using good-for-you products too?? Well today is your lucky day because I am posting some links to some AWESOME coupon sites I regularly use. It makes using green, organic, and all natural products a reality for those that like to pinch those pennies.

I hope these links help any of you that are looking for a healthy dose of savings! Feel free to shoot any similar links my way! My wallet and I thank you in advance! :-)

Besides coupons, how else do you save money while still keeping what you buy healthy? Be sure to check in as I will regularly update this post with new sites. Until next time, HUGS AND KISSES...

A Faithful Friend

It's been a while and I could give you a million reaons why but really all I can say is that it's been a year. A year full of so much awesome goodness but, especially towards the end, a year's see....a year, still not good....a year building? Yeah, that's it. Hit the nail on the head with that one. FAITH BUILDING. I have learned so much. To name a few....
* Life is precious. I seem to be reminded of this more and more with each passing year. Maybe it's the whole getting older thing? Maybe it's experiencing the loss of loved ones or seeing my friends losing those so sweet to them? Maybe it's being faced with the possibility of losing those closest to me? Whatever the reason, it's a bittersweet lesson to learn. Remember to take it in and to truly love as God would have us to love.
* Family is so important. They are our history yet also our future.
* Friends are wonderful blessings of the Lord. Mine happen to be extra special blessings.
* Not everyone is a friend...some might even be enemies. 
* Marriage is a beautiful yet delicate thing. It needs to be treasured and protected.
* No one is exempt from disease. Sickness can creep into the life of anyone.
* I have so much to be thankful for in my life.
* Because I have one life, I need to live it right because I don't get a second chance.

 I could list a million things that I have learned, really, but here's the most important....GOD IS GOOD. Yes, I knew that before so I suppose I didn't learn it but I sure was reminded of it. He showed me His goodness and faithfulness in so many interesting ways this year and at really unexpected times from even more unexpected resources. Although unexpected, the comfort and love He showed to me at those times was exactly what I needed. That just shows how much He loves and knows His children. What a Faithful Friend!
