Recipe of the Week
I had a few very ripe pears that I needed to use and came across this Paleo recipe for Spiced Pear Muffins with Nut Topping. These naturally sweetened muffins were delicious!
Scott and Emma enjoyed them so much they asked me to make another batch. I hope you like them, too!
Trust Each Moment
Trust. Trust. Trust. Again and again. See how much of your pain, your anguish, your tension arises simply from not trusting the absolute perfection of the moment. I’ve lost my way. I’m off track. I’m somehow wrong- in the wrong place at the wrong time, doing the wrong thing. Where I’m going is a dead end. Oh, dear…
You are not off track. You haven’t lost your way. You’re going somewhere worth going. Somewhere magnificent beyond the ability of your mind to comprehend. By trusting the perfection of each moment, you give yourself a gift: permission to enjoy the journey.
Don’t just take the trip.
Let yourself enjoy the ride.
