Smitten by

I'm honored to say that I was asked to be a guest blogger (my first time ever) on smitten by

Click here to check out my post on spring cleansing & enter to win $100 DoTerra essential oils giveaway! Pretty darm amazing!

Update: I'm not responsible for the giveaway, Smitten By is. I'm really sorry for the confusion, thank you Smitten By!

...although that sure isn't a bad idea for the future. Maybe, when a certain somebody finally gets arrested we will do something to celebrate here on the ol' bloggity!

And while i'm here, thank you so very much for giving me a shoulder to cry on, reading about my sorrows, and uplifting me along the way. I never know if some things will be too much to write about.... So thank you readers for all your kind comments, it really brings happy tears to my eyes and blows away dark shadows that overcome me at times.

  1. Would love to learn more about what to do for the kidneys!

    1. What I did was apply oregano and On Guard to the bottoms of my feet. And peppermint and frankincense to my spine and over my infected/inflamed kidney. The books say lemongrass, rosemary, and zendocrine (taken internally) helps with infections. For stones lemon, eucalyptus, and wintergreen in a warm compress over the kidneys, or taken in a capsule.

      I know drinking lemon in your water will prevent stones. Just read in my "Modern Essentials" book that kidneys play an important role in hormone production. Sure glad I have both of mine still, since I need all the help I can get!

  9. Kelly I just want to say that you are a remarkable lady. Your spirit is so strong and is on it's way to healing as is your physical and mental state. In sharing your experiences of the last few months it has helped you to start the healing and grieving process that all who have loved and lost have to go through. Thank you for sharing this with us. I'm glad that the oils are helping you and your body to heal. I didn't belive in them at first but my mom has made me a few mixes for different things and it is so much better than the chemicals I used for my aches and pains and anxiety. I just want to send you some love and let you know how sorry I am for your loss and all that you have had to go through since Christmas Eve. Your a very Amazing person. Remeber that what doesn't kill us helps us become stronger....... Lots of love to you and your little family.

  15. Thank you so so much for all the information you gave and the samples that you sent me! Oh my gosh, I can't even tell you how much better I am. I ended up only putting the oils on my feet; however, I swear, if I didn't use them one day I would feel like I as regressing. Then I would use them the next, and I'd be improving again. I definitely think these things work--well. I will be contacting you to order as soon as I get paid, but I did enter the giveaway too. You are such a sweetheart for making them time to send those out and help me so much!

    xoxo

  17. I have heard of DoTerra and am interested in trying it out. I hope i win! Thanks for being featured and telling me more about it

  18. I'm also discovering the wonders of oils. My poor baby has colic and my SIL told me to rub digestzen on his tummy. It's fabulous! Now I check on him because he's NOT crying. :) I've also heard that frankincense is pretty much a cure-all. And I love the smell! Makes sense why it would be such a valuable gift. Anyway, I hope you get well very soon. Hearts!

  20. Please write whatever you want to read about...it's coming from your heart and how you feel. There isn't anything wrong with that, this is your blog.
    And....WHAT??? The Jerk (that's saying it as nice as I can so I don't offend anyone) But he's NOT arrested yet? His day will come real soon and I will be here to celebrate with you and your family!!!

  23. Kelly, Do you guys know anything more about the arrest? It is maddening to consider what you have been going through, and think about the fact that he is just living his life without yet having to take complete, full, and TOTAL responsibility for the pain he has caused your family with his choice. It is surprising it is taking this long. Based on time estimation from a couple of weeks ago, I thought maybe that the media just didn't update on it, or that maybe I missed it somehow. Still sending prayers, happy thoughts, and cyber hugs your way......

    1. Yeah, its definitely taking an awfully long time... I just try not to think about it. He could be driving around as I type this, it really, really upsets me! Only time will tell I guess...only time will tell.

  25. This is my post I posted on "Smitten By".

    I too did all three entries. I actually began reading her blog a few weeks after the accident when I stumbled upon it from reading another friends blog who mentioned her story. I have been addicted every since and when I get to work, its the first thing I check to see if she posted something new. I cried terribly yesterday when reading it and couldn’t control my emotions all day because of her pain. I just want to lay with her and give her hugs and tell her I’m here for her and when no one else is around to help out, me and my girls would love to help get these oils all over her to help her heal quickly. I have never tried them before, but want to so desperately bad. My kids have health issues and I’m dying to try them out. Much Love!

I am so happy these oils are working for you! I pray for your continued well-being and for justice to be found. Blessings to you and your.

  29. You are AMAZING!!!! I have prayed for you and your family since Christmas Eve. I hope that they arrest that S.O.B. I don't understand why they haven't yet. I love reading your blogs. I read them to my kids, they also pray for you guys.

  30. Thank you for your blog! It is so inspiring to me. I also lost a son about a year ago and the pain is still there. Your blog helps me know I'm not alone. I am so sorry for your loss. He seemed like a sweet boy. I think you should try to get your blog published as a book. I would buy a copy for me and everyone I know. You are a fabulous writer . I wish I would have kept a blog or journal myself because the emotional damage I went through has blocked some of my memories sadly.

  31. You are absolutely amazing and so inspiring. I have had some trials this past year, and some losses as well. I come and read your blog for inspiration, and after I do I feel like I can get through anything if I have even half the amount of Faith and Courage you do. You and your sweet family are in my prayers.

  33. Thank you Kelly for your honesty and bravery in this rough time. You are as so many have said already inspiring. I feel like I have gotten to know you and your grief is very real for me. I don't know how that is possible but your emotions carry through very well. God Bless!

  34. So very happy to see the news today. I hope that man gets the maximum penalty for each of the counts brought against him. I know that it will not bring your sweet little Colum back but hopefully it will keep another family from having to face a similar situation.
    Always thinking of you and your family,
    Sarah

  35. I was happy to see the news today too...

    While I'm terribly sorry for your loss and for all that you've had to endure, your story is inspiring and it truly reminds us of how fragile life is and how lucky we are to be happy and healthy each passing day.

    Sometimes I think we get so caught up in our own lives that we forget just how precious life is. I know I am guilty of this as I experienced my own personal hell (learning of my husband's dual life and infidelity)- going through a divorce and becoming a single mom. While my trial is nothing compared to yours, it's still a great reminder to always look at the positive and keep moving forward- no matter how impossible it may seem.

    Thank you for your words. I found you on pinterest a few months ago and have been so pleased to see that you are finding healing, hope and happiness once again.

    You're a wonderful example!

    Sending my love...
