I often blog about all things controversial and how my beliefs and opinions seem to be so different from the majority. Reading through past blog posts, I also noticed that I have mentioned a few times about lack of support from family and friends. I want to dedicate this post to the amazing support from some of my family and friends! My husband hasn't always agreed with me but he has always supported me when I want to try things to help our children. He has attempted to eat foods that don't look edible, helped with supplements, and, financial, always put the kids needs first, even if that meant making other sacrifices. Thank you babe, you have no idea how much your support means! My mom has stood by my side from the beginning doing everything she can to support me. She always makes sure she has food in the house that the kids can eat when we visit and will even drive an hour to a grocery store that has certain foods. She has tried to educate herself as much as possible to understand me and my beliefs. She has never judged me, questioned me, or complained about the choices I make for my kids. She will choke down a gluten, casein, soy, corn free brownie at my kids birthday parties with a smile on her face. Thank you Mom! My grandma, Ella Mae, has always supported me too. She shares my blog with her friends and always lets me know that I'm doing the right things for my kids. She even attempted a gluten free recipe for her infamous dumplings. Thank you Grandma! Then I have about a handful of really close girlfriends who are very loyal to me. I'm not going to name them but they know who they are. They are the ones who may or may not agree with me but support me. They listen, question, encourage, and support me. My life wouldn't be quit complete without them. Thank you ladies! I really don't know what I do with all these wonderful people in my life. I am so thankful and blessed! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
