Remedies and hints: Hey I read that you don’t throw away soap wrappers, instead toss them in the drawer or your gym bag for a good smell toss. Save those soap bar pieces to rub them on a stain on clothes, sometime it works as good as expensive products. Having problems with pimples? if so, I have a cheap remedy: dry up pimples by dabbing them with a tiny glob of toothpaste, let it dry and rinse with cool water. Itchy mosquito bites gently wipe a little bit of toothpaste on each bite and you will feel relief fast.

Words to live by: worries and faith can’t live in the same heart; which one are you going to live in? Give all the Glory to God. Ms Becky Jenkins is a great inspiration; her words to me are ones I live by. Others can’t make me happy; I have to do it myself. God Is my Strength and He Keeps Me Happy.

Please keep reading and if you have ideas to share let me know. LOVE, LIVE and LAUGH, be Happy because life is short and we all need to leave a mark.
