I like to listen to NPR radio. They often have little stories that are compelling in nature.
Just this morning the show included a blurb about militiary mothers and the diffuculties they face with long deployments overseas away from their children. They keep in touch with videos, letters and phone calls but the distance still takes its toll on the memory of the child.
The military mothers shared tips on things that have helped them stay in touch with their children. One tip I really liked was the use of scent with perfume or soap. By wearing the scent while they are home with the child they create a strong memory for the child of the mother. Scent is the strongest of the memory triggers. So while they are away the child can relive the memories of the mothers love with a whiff of scent. It comforts both the child and the mother.
I have two great kids.
My oldest daughter is 19 and recently graduated from community college with a 4.0. She received a merit scholarship to CW Post College for $14,000 where she will be studying acconting. An intense profession but one I think she will be well suited for. She is 5'2", only 95 lbs, BT A and a Geno Type Teacher. She has always enjoyed her BT foods and now eats as much as possible by her Geno Type. She is creative in the kitchen given her food choices and will mix unexpected flavors to come up with a unique taste. I will often find her sitting at the kitchen counter savoring some such thing she has made. A big smile on her face. I know that she feels better when she eats well. She loves food in context with the Blood type/Geno Type lifestyle.
My son is 15 blood type O and I believe a Gatherer, he is tall and muscular. He is passionate about skateboarding and cooking TV shows. He will spend hours working on skateboarding tricks till he perfects them. He is my biggest food critic. No matter what I make he has some comment about how to make it better. I often ask him for advice on how to cook a piece of meat. When he doesn't feel well or is paricularly tired he will always ask for meat. He too like my daughter loves his Blood Type food.
I am so glad that I have been able to comunicate a love of the Blood type lifestyle to my children.
Their happiness is my joy.
