What A Sad Day.

Last night my Hubs Mother died. At the same time my Hubs brothers wife's Dad died. This morning 26 students and personnel died in Connecticut. Every hour a person dies of Melanoma. Every day innocent people give in to the lords call to come home. I have a candle lit to help show the way to heaven for these innocent people.

I am so saddened with grief and will offer extra prayers tonight.

Colleen

Such a tragic loss for your family. (And so many others right now.) I know too well how hard it is to head into the holidays after a loss but have always tried to remember that those we love loved us back and want us to be happy. It will bring them great joy above if we can find something to smile about and still find a way to enjoy the holidays, even just a little. (((hugs))) There are so many to pray for today, so many hurting, my prayers will be with you and yours as well.

Sorry, sweets. :(

I know you and your family have been going through so much, and it is unusual for a family to lose 2 members on the same day.

My love and ((HUGS)) .

If someone is elderly, it is somehow more "expected" .... but still shocking and sad....(I know, when I lost my beloved Dad, I was numb for months) and when it is children involved... anyone's child....lost somehow through illness or taken in a horrific, senseless act, it seems so much more tragic somehow.

As a teacher, I find this abhorrent ---because honestly, a school is a sanctuary. A neutral place for learning and joy and has nothing to do with violence.

This young man was obviously mentally unstable and chose the wrong path to express his anger at his mother. I pray for his soul.

I have already thrown up once over this today...and I may just go do it again.. :(

Colleen, you always show so much courage, hon.... and I know you will remain strong, my friend.

My sympathy to you and your hubs,

xxoo IH

(((((Hugs))))) Colleen. I'll say a prayer for your family too. The passing of the children and staff at the school is very sad.

Colleen - so much loss in one day.

Please know that you and your family are in my prayers tonight and in the days ahead.

I must add your beautiful card was one very bright spot in a very tearfilled day. Thank you.

Big, big HUG!

    • Exactly!  It talks about moderation in meat consumption.  It never says we all need to go vegan.  
    • Just looked up The Who findings and found a ton of links backing this up from 2015. Here's one from Harvard https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/2015/11/03/report-says-eating-processed-meat-is-carcinogenic-understanding-the-findings/
    • My sibling is biopsy positive but antibody negative.  Was the genetic test run?  I was fine with one scope and sick to my stomach after the other due to the meds. Easy cure the next time around was to give anti nausea meds. Other then that, it was a breeze. 
    • Along with this  I always suggest freezer paper/butcher paper laid out for a clean prep surface. Also keeping everything separate where you can, using different drawers etc as crumbs can fall in them. Quick cheaper safe area can be created by setting up a small kitchen area somewhere else with a fold out table and some dedicated appliances start off with a microwave, you can get cookware from nordic ware for steaming, and cooking things, the omelette and egg cookers are great along with the grilling plates, PS the splatter covers are a life saver for many reasons. From there I would suggest a crockpot/ricecookier/steamer combo, toaster oven. and a griddle and your set for everything just about. New appliances are a must to prevent CC.  
    • Welcome Desiree Lot's of people, myself included, wind up in the same situation you have, removing gluten from the diet then finding out they need to go back on it for testing. Unfortunately there's no option other than the challenge. I know it's the last thing you feel like after experiencing a health improvement on your diet. You need to weigh up the pros and cons and decide if you want to do it. If you do, there's lot's of advice and support available here to help you through it. For me although the initial feeling of going back on gluten was unpleasant and it wasn't nice to see symptoms return, the challenge became easier as it went on.  If you do this you may want some advice on the gluten-free diet as there's lot's of ways you can slip up.
