Greys Anatomy: Personal Jesus

Last nights episode of Grey's Anatomy has my emotions all over the place.  Often we find ourselves dealing with situations that we don't understand; situations that we seek guidance for. The episode entitled "Personal Jesus" touched on racial bias, loss of a loved one, and trusting in your faith.  Or dare I say questioning your faith. 

The episode follows April Kepner who is played by Sarah Drew ( one of my favorite actress's) through an extremely heart breaking day.  She assist in the birth of a child who's father is the man she left at the alter.  She gives insight to a young man who tried to cut his hand off from his interpretation of scripture.  Then there's the young man who was shot as he tried to enter his own home and a Doctor put in her care from a hit and run.

Needless to say, the mother of that child died and so did the young man who was entering his home; to add insult to injury the doctor who was fine last she checked also died. 

One would go through all of this and ask why? Why god? Why would you put me through all of this when you said you wouldn't give me more than I can bare.  You couldn't possibly believe that this is bearable.  I think this episode begins a journey in the story of what happens when a person is in pain and feeling broken.  What happens when faith is tested and doubt sets in?

 My heart shatters for anyone that's going through something that weighs heavy and having you question why.  I'm very interested to see how Sarah's character pushes through her pain.  Will she begin to question the God that she loves dearly and feels wouldn't give her what she couldn't handle? Or will the doubt set in, and her faith dwindle and her trust in God depart.

Until next week......

New Year, New Changes

Hey everyone! I'm back!!! New Year lots of things going on and the best part is more blogging!!! I'm very excited to really get my blog up and going this year.  I'll be mainly focusing on diet, mommy managing and of course TV! (Who doesn't love a good show) So with that being said, a new lifestyle change has happened.  I'm officially VEGAN (omg)  I've been a vegetarian for over five years and the change was awesome.  Becoming a vegan was prompted by giving birth to an amazing daughter.  Postpartum made me feel like I wanted a change for my daughter, a healthier change.  Thus the transition began.

So in the beginning giving up dairy was extremely difficult (omg) I missed it so much, but pizza (of course) was what I craved the most.  It was like I couldn't shake it.  I began to look for alternatives to my usual dominoes fix.  Side bar for those who are in the UK Pizza Hut now offers vegan pizza.  Anyway my new favorite pizza friends is Farmers Tomato Pie by …

Ripple Kids Milk

😋 I had the opportunity to try and review a new product on the market by Ripple Kids.  So its essentially Pea Milk.  I know your reading this and thinking Pea Milk really? I know I thought the same thing too.  But it was amazing!!!!

So first off, I stop eating dairy a while ago.  Needless to say I've been a search for a variety of dairy free products.  I hosted a picnic to try Ripple Kids with other mama's and it was greatly reviewed.  I personally loved that it didn't taste like "vegetable milk" I actually thought I was drinking a milk shake.  It wasn't super sweet and it wasn't bitter it was just right.

I'm eager to try it in different recipes, or in my tea or cereal.  This is a big deal considering that I didn't like dairy milk when I was eating dairy products, but I would totally use Ripple Kids milk on a daily basis.

If the LO is anything like her mama then this milk is here to stay in our family!!! I encourage you'll to try it.
