I was out of sorts this weekend. I experienced something that was extremely traumatic to me on Saturday and only felt better yesterday after going for a session of EMDR therapy.
I wasn't exactly skepticle when I went in but I was afraid it wouldn't be able to help me with what I was experiencing. I was proven wrong and I came away from my session feeling better than I have in years and will probably go back at least once more. I want to say thank you to my friends that have had EMDR and shared their own amazing experiences. It truly helped me to take that leap and heal myself. I am definitely going to suggest my mom find someone in her area that does EMDR, it would help her so much. I'm just rambling as always, but it was so interesting to see how your brain can be reprogrammed to NOT react to certain things the way it used to.
I hope you have an amazing day.

Here's Jakob on his first day of 1st grade and on his last day. My, how he's grown. Next year I'll have to get the teacher to stand both times. Heehee. I always think of that Veggie Tales song, Billy Joe McGuffrey...1st day in the 1st grade. He needed 1st aid in the 1st grade... So catchy... follow the link to listen.

Church was good today. No chocolate, but still good. The kids were totally rowdy and I let them talk A LOT! Normally, I'm all over them to settle down, but what the hay, summer's comin'! I think I might get some scrappin' in today...we'll see.

Just posting a picture of a lo I did on my MIL and FIL. This is a picture we took a couple of years ago at Disney Land. It's amazing what Weight Watchers has done for them! They look so thin now compared to this pic.I used silk/paper flowers that I purchased at the $1 store for this lo. I scanned it in but I think I'll take a picture of it later. It's so hard to get a true representation of a lo or card on the blog ya know!?!?!
I've been thinking a lot about all that has been going on around the world lately, ie earthquakes, volcanic erruptions, tsunamis, tornadoes. I just wanted to put the question out there...what the heckdo you think is going on? My very close friend thinks it ALL has to do with global warming...I thought to myself that the last time I checked volcanic and techtonic activity aren't even remotely related to global warming, are they? We're very opposite politically and sometimes I feel that gets in the way of us speaking about things without letting politics rule. I love her so much but I have to admit I was frustrated after hanging up the phone. So I'm asking you...what's your opinion. Mass intelligence out there.
I feel horrible for all those that are suffering at this time, 9,000 dead in China, someone from our church is living in China, his mom has no idea how he is yet. My other friend from Church is from Chile and she's so worried for her family.
So, do you think it's time we REALLY started preparing for "something major" or do you think if we just cut back on our greenhouse gas emissions and our carbon footprint everything would be all right? Just puttin' it out there.
Have a thought provoking day.
