Tips Before Remodeling

Your renovation project is something that you will likely spend a lot of time completing. It might involve remodeling an entire room or each room in the home. However you want to change the appearance of the home, you want to keep in mind a few simple tips that can help give the best results possible. 

Make a plan before any of the work is completed. You want to make a list of the items that you will need and the colors that you want to use. Gather all of the supplies that are needed before the project begins so that you aren't going back and forth to the store for hardware or small pieces that might get lost in the middle of the project. Create a picture of what you want the new area to look like so that you aren't completing the remodeling project blindly. 

 Think about the bigger picture once the remodeling project is complete. You don't want to add appliances that are going to use more energy than the ones that were in the home before. Look at the care that is needed to maintain the floors, walls and other aspects of the remodel as you might not want to spend a lot of time cleaning when you could be spending time with family and friends enjoying the new look of the home. 

 When you hire contractors or people who will help with the remodeling project, you want to make sure they are knowledgeable or certified in the work that is done. Don't let someone who works in plumbing complete the electrical work, and make sure the person who is building knows how to use measurements. Before the work begins, find a place in the home where you can have a similar living situation while the work is being completed. Look at work that has been done by the company that you hire. See if the company can give you the design that you desire as some companies might not know of the latest trends when it comes to colors, framing, electrical work and personal design ideas.

Olive Oil for Thicker Hair

My mother used to have long and thick hair when she was younger. Now that she is more than 70 years old, her hair is thinning and has lost its luster -until she discovered the benefits of olive oil to hair.

She starts to regularly apply olive oil to her scalp a few hours before taking a bath. Sometimes, she would apply it at night and just sleep with a hair cap to make sure the olive oil is really absorb by the scalp. 

And to our surprise, after a few months of doing it, her healthy hair is restored –thick and shiny again. For those who want to try it too, here’s a simple recipe for olive oil hair mask:
Just add a few drops of honey to olive oil to make a hair mask. Add just enough honey because too much of it can make the mask sticky and harder to apply. When the desired consistency is reached, apply the mixture to hair and scalp and then cover it with a hair cap.
Wait for 1 and ½ hour before rinsing it with shampoo. It is best to rinse with cool water because hot water takes away hair shine. 

Do this natural hair care treatment regularly and your hair will be the envy of many.

Tips to Create a Healthy Relationship

I came upon this story in Facebook. A friend shared this and I am deeply touched because of the lessons it teaches on how one can maintain a healthy, loving relationship with all the people in our lives.  I wish I can acknowledge the author but I am guessing that this one is posted anonymously. Read and learn a great lesson in life:

Burned Biscuits - A lesson we all should learn.

When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my Mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!
All my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my Mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that ugly burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing...never made a face nor uttered a word about it!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my Mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said, "Honey, I love burned biscuits every now and then."

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your Mom put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides--a little burned biscuit never hurt anyone!"

As I've grown older, I've thought about that many times. Life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people.

I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. But what I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that's my prayer for you today...that you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!

"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket--keep it in your own."
So, please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burned one will do just fine.

And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life--I just did!
Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

"Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil--it has no point"
