The Amazing of Having Children

By. Ani Yusup

Being a mother is the most terrific and most challenging task ever! I am so ecited by worth of the task I have been given. I have a lot work to do at office, yet none compare to the daily supervision, debates, and "loud conversations" that I have with my 9-year-old girl, 7 and 5-year-old boys.

The time flew so quickly, it's amazing. Just yesterday, they were little babies, tiny winnie who depended on me for everything and now they are these confident young people who are becoming more self sufficient every day. They have their thoughts and opinions. They are great kids. I am not saying this because they are mine. I also hope that everyone have these feeling about their children.

I thank God for them every day. I alway could not believe that I have this amazing gift. What did I do so great in my lifetime to deserve such of this fantastic blessing? I made a lot of mistakes and I certainly wasn't the best student. I apparently did something right, and I would not do anything differently, because I cannot for the life of me figure out what I ever did to deserve them ... my children. They are the light of my life forever.

I thank God to finding me worthy of the gift of motherhood. Continue to bless my children with strength, health and free will. Bless my husband and me with the skills and resources to provide them with all of the things they want. I hope God gives me strength and fortitude to teach them to be an independent thinker, a self-sufficient doer, and a proactive participant.

Let us realize how fortunate we are and that we all need to pitch in and help those in needs. Bless those who are unable to conceive, help them to realize that they need to experience the pains of labor to mother a child.

Tips For Buying Chlidren's Clothes

By. Ani Yusup







For some people shopping is a hobby, depending on what kind of shopping is required. You must be clear in your head about your requirement if you go out shopping clothes for your children.

It is difficult to maintain the balance between the quality and the price of the clothes. Good clothes can be pretty expensive, that’s why no parent wants to compromise on their children’s clothes. The more the price of the clothes, the better would be the quality, that is general presumption.

Usually it is quite to task to find good quality clothes. Shopping can prove to be quite taxing after you have a nice and reliable source to find some nice quality clothes.

You must have a look at these tips before you make your purchase if you don’t want to end up spending fortune on your children’s clothes.

1. Choosing practically over the aesthetics. For example, no matter how much the parents would want their children to look celebrities, it is absolutely not practical. The children care about is the comfort of the clothes they are in. The children do not give much important to their appearance at all. Most of the time, children handle their clothes in a very rough manner, because they are always interested in having a lot of fun. So, it’s not a good idea to dress up the children in aesthetically beautiful and expensive.

2. Buy a few extra sizes at once. Children grow up quickly. You will need a bigger size for your clothes while one size might be last for a year. This tip would help you and save your running around every six month.

3. Always remember to purchase from the good online shops or baby stores which offer nice discounts. That’s because you don’t want to splurge so much on your children’s clothes at the end of the day.

Finally to purchase clothes for your children, make sure that you’ve been choose the perfect place.

Water In The Human Body

By. Ani Yusup
Why are some people who never eat stone, but they has kidney stone disease?

Generally people drink 8 (eight) glasses a day. Drinking water quality will determine the quality of one's health. Liver and kidney are organs which served as the filter water contained in the blood. Poor water contains many dissolved sediment that can accelerate liver damage and kidney. The precipitate was dissolved heavy metals can be very harmful for the body.

When we consume water that contains heavy metals, we could be poisoning. One of heavy metas is cadmium which can be acute and chronic. Toxic effects caused by the disease of the lungs, liver, high blood pressure, kidney dissorders in system, and osteoporosis.

Lead content in the human body can inhibit the activity of enzymes in the formation of hemoglobin which can lead to anemia. Poor appetite is a symptom caused by lead poisoning, also cramps, vomiting and dizzines. In the greater content timbale also can disrupt the reproductive system, mental disorders and kidney disorders.

Water is an important element that can dissolved anything even if in very small amounts. In the clear water there is no suspended solids, but still allows the existence of the dissolved solids.

Then, let us considering the quality of water we drink.

SALT OF SPICE

By. Ani Yusup
 
For this article I am going to delve into the complexities of salt and why we cannot make exquisite meals without it. You may be wondering why I am calling salt a spice, when in fact it is a mineral with a chemical symbol of NACL (sodium chloride). I am sure you all have heard Doctors tout the statement "eat less salt"; I would agree with that statement if they would also clarify which type of salt they are referring to.

Our body needs salt to survive; one of the tongue's taste buds is used for salty flavors. All salt is not the same! What most Doctors and nutritionists are referring to is common ordinary processed table salt, which usually has no resemblance to real salt and has very little value to the human body.

Salt should be used in moderation, as with any food and should be used as a flavor enhancer, the same as any other spice. Real salt is unrefined, unprocessed sea salt, which is actually good for you but by no means does that mean eat as much as you want.

The elucidation to finding a salt you like is to try as many as possible from many different regions and a variety of curing processes. You should never taste salt in your home cooked meals. As with any spice, salt has many different subtle flavors, depending on which region it is harvested from.

I do not like Pacific Ocean salt; it is too salty for me. I personally found I like Mediterranean fine and coarse French sea salt (sell gris) for cooking, I also have found I like the French Fleur de Sell as a finishing salt. 

It is the most misunderstood and misused element in the cooking process. Salt is the single most important component in any dish.

You must taste salt and decide for yourself because no one can tell you how much salt to add to the dish.
