Aloha and Ciao!

    As I think of all of the places I'd really rather be at than here in -24 degree North Dakota, I can only think of Maui and Venice as my top ranking choices. My dream planning continues as I await a trip to Italy sometime in the next year, with any good planning and saving. I just love to travel and really want to experience more new things with each passing year of my life.
     My family and I went to Disney World in January, and as part of that trip, we went on a Disney cruise to the Bahamas and Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. The girls absolutely LOVED the cruise and DW as well. When I ask them now if they'd do anything again, they've all responded that they'd go on the cruise again. I cannot tell you how TOP of the LINE Disney cruises are! Everything is so immaculately gorgeous and well thought out. Every detail is taken care of for each traveler. I think I could become a Disney salesperson! In fact, Jae seems to have loved it so much, she's considering applying for an internship with Disney and working in their park or cruise line instead of some immediate college plans. I can't say that I disagree. I love adventure; I really do!
    As we head further into 2014, the Reutter family has some big events coming up! In March, Larry and I will be married 10 YEARS! Time has flown, for sure. In April, Maci will turn 6, and I will turn 6 x 7 + 1. Then in May Jae has her biggest event...GRADUATION! I know she can hardly wait to be free and experiencing life at her own pace. I keep praying she will hunger and thirst for God once again and seek Him for all wisdom.
     As we continue to press on through the winter season which seems to have no end, I am thankful for our health. Many people have had the dreaded flu and other gastrointestinal ailments, but God has kept us well! It's so good to use my Young Living oils nearly daily to keep our immune systems boosted. I would love to somehow grow my blog, as I've mentioned before. I'm just never sure what exactly to post. Perhaps I'll start with some small natural health tips to see if there is any interest.
     First, I encourage everyone to invest in at least one really good essential oil. That would be Thieves. Thieves is a good, all-around oil which can nearly be a panacea for all that ails. It helps kill mold, strengthen immunity, heal sore throats, disinfect, and on and on. Diffuse this oil, put a drop or two on your tongue (if you can handle the heat!), or rub on to feet or neck and chest to combat the winter colds. Do yourself a favor! Use Thieves!
