Home Remedy--Hiccups

         Image Hosted by
Please remember that these are remedies that have either been mailed onto me, or that I have found on the Internet.  I haven't tried them all and cannot guarantee the effectiveness of them.  Of course, you should always check with your physician before starting any type of medical regimen.
  • Drink 1/2 glass water, slowly.
  • Keep a tsp. of sugar in your month and suck slowly.
  • Suck 2-3 small pieces of fresh ginger. This helps in hiccups which keep occurring again and again.
  • Take a large mouthful of water with out swallowing, plug both ears, and slowly begin to swallow the water. Unplug your ears and you're hiccup free!

John Jr, is in my thoughts today as he leaves Cleveland to begin his basic training.  His Dad and Cathy took him out to breakfast yesterday before taking him to the bus to go to Cleveland.  He's been told how he has to learn to eat very quickly, as the boys only have about 8 minutes to eat their meals.  So yesterday he ate his sausage, biscuits & gravy and hash browns in a mere 5 minutes.  LOL  I bet that was a site to see. 

I'm so glad that his father, step mom and our side of the family took the time to do something special for him, and spent time with him before he left.  I know how much that meant to him and how important it was for him to know how much we all care and wish him the best.  It is loving moments and times like those that will remain in a young mans memory a lifetime. 

My prayers and best wishes go out to Mom B's sister, Pinky.  We thinking of you and sending prayers for a speedy and healthy recovery.

Also, I am praying for guidance and protection for a very special woman who has been taken advantage of and stolen from.  Lord, this woman has a heart of gold and doesn't deserve to be treated the way she has been.  Please keep your loving hands on her, guide her in making wise decisions, and protect her from those who would use her.  Grant her peace of mind and let her feel your love. 

Prayers for my mother whom I love dearly and for Samantha, who hasn't been feeling well. 

Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!

Hi Jill!  I've gotten behind in my journal reading.  It sounds like John Jr. is entering the military?  God Bless him.  It's my belief that the love of family and friends is the only thing we take with us when we leave this life so those memories will continue forever!  And that's a good thing!  I hope your friend finds the peace and comfort she needs.  Blessings to you, Linda
