There are two ways to live. You can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if EVERYTHING is a miracle. -Albert Einstein
In the year 2003, I became a wife. Josh and I had made our commitment to stick it out, in good times in bad, sickness and health. How little we knew what the future held for us! In 2006, I became a mother for the first time. Isabella and Grace, our twin girls were born a mere 28 weeks into my pregnancy, and they spent 12 weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Realizing that the girls were far too fragile to attend a daycare, my husband and I made the decision that I would stay home with them. The girls were tiny, but they grew strong, and stayed healthy! In 2010, I was to become a mother again. Our youngest little girl was born premature as well, and was born with a myriad of medical conditions. That day in June, my husband and I became parents to Ayla. Her list of diagnosis is long, and ever increasing. She was born with spina bifida, hydrocephalus, neurogenic bowel and bladder and Arnold chiari malformation. In years since, she has developed scoliosis, tethered spinal cord, a seizure disorder, and hip dysplasia. Our world was turned upside down with surgeries, doctors appointments, new terminology, insurance, medical equipment, therapies, more surgeries (15 to date), medicines. We were in a fight to find a “new normal”.
I remember the day my friend, Kate, introduced Young Living Oils to me. The timing was perfect. I knew that Aylas health dictated that we had to utilize Western Medicine to keep her alive and healthy, but I was looking for other ways to naturally support systems in her body that were affected by her spina bifida. We were able to add essential oils into our everyday lives with great success! I find that we are supporting nearly every body system, for every family member, daily!
I won’t turn back! How could I? Not only am I looking at a healthier lifestyle for my family, I can utilize network marketing as a wealth building opportunity. I work from home, work from therapy appointments, work from my hammock and I am blessed to work with wonderful friends, new and old! Will you join me?
