Last week my little dog developed a skin allergy and I told this to my new sister-in-law. She and I come from different backgrounds in that she married her high school sweetheart, had kids in her twenties, and completed her associate’s degree. She lives a few miles from the town where she grew up.
I, on the other hand, spent twenty years after high school traveling and dating. I live 3000 miles from my hometown, but have also lived 3000 miles in the opposite direction. I’ve moved between both places four to five times in my life. When I met Carmi, I wasn’t sure what we might have in common.
When I told her last week about Maggie, she quickly suggested that we add a probiotic to her diet to help with the allergy. Despite coming from different worlds, we share a passion for natural and holistic healing. Today, we trade ideas for how to care for people and the home in ways that try to avoid chemicals, additives, and artificial ingredients. When Carmi suggested the probiotic, I was so grateful because I hadn’t thought of that.
