Recently I have been feeling a little bit down. I think it is hitting me that this year I will be a housewife, and honestly that is a word I never liked. So I decided that I needed to start back up Thankful Thursdays and remember what I am truly thankful for because honestly there is so much that I have that so many people do not. Most importantly I am thankful for a place to rest my head safely at night, and the food we fill our stomachs with every day. I have three beautiful children and a husband who has supported me for nearly eight years in any venture that I wanted to take on, not matter how crazy that was. This week I have something new to be thankful for that is bringing me hope. My middle son as many of you know suffers from many learning disorders and seizures. The medication they have him on seemingly doing no good I can't get the doctor to even check or change it despite his increasingly aggressive behavior. While the doctor insists that it isn't the medication my motherly instinct said something was wrong. We were blessed to receive a sponsor for Mannarelief this week which provides him with Manna Tech products which seem to be working! He is now seizure medication free(yes without the doctor knowing but he won't contact me) his personality has improved so much in just a couple short days, he slept so great last night and his skin is even clearing a bit! I know many of you do not know him. In fact most of you but he has struggled his entire life with these issues and he is seeing relief :*) what a blessing this week has been.
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
