My sister is amazing!!! She is beautiful, strong, courageous, dedicated, and a great mom! I saw her post on Facebook this morning and just had to share on this blog. She ran her fist 5K with her two girls. This is the first time she has been able to run in awhile, which is something she has done all her life. She is one of my heros. I have watched her struggle with a life that she didn’t expect to have. She has had a lot of trials and always she has been the rock for her children to rely on. She has always been a faithful daughter of God and a great example to her children. She is a surviver and now I believe she will do the same with her lung cancer. She will survive and fight! I just love her and pray for her everyday. I love to hear my children praying for her. I love you Angie!! You go girl!
I also wanted to share a recipe I made this week. I made some with frosting and some without for myself. I made a little coconut oil frosting to go on top, with 1/2 cup coconut oil, 2 drops of lemon oil, or lemon juice, 1/4 cup powdered sugar (you could also keep it healthier by using 2 tbs raw honey instead or lemon flavored stevia). I put them in the freezer and then used them in my kids lunches for the week. They were a great treat and even had some good fats and fiber from the coconut milk, oil, and almond flour. You can buy both coconut oil, flour and almond flour at Costco.
