About Tamara Hoerner (1261 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. The society is doomed when good ones keeps silent

  2. Maybe the good ones don’t have a chance to speak. Maybe they resist, because their mouth and what they say can get them into turmoil. I believe there is a time to be very quiet, and to listen. We plant seeds daily. We either become angry, or we resist it. I believe fear is an awesome thing that manages to keep us quiet when we should be speaking the truth from our hearts. Do we have thoughts. Yes, all of us do, but it is rarely that I see others expressing what they are truly thinking. My sister’s husband died last night at 9:30 P. M. He suffered from cancer, and quickly died. It was an awesome, horrible diagnosis, but he managed to live, and to press on for a while. I believe it is a shame to lose a person of his caliber, but maybe God wanted him in Heaven for Himself. It has been a long, hard, life, but at times my sister and he would call and we would laugh. I hate to see that he has gone, but for him it is a, new, wonderful, adventure. Life is precious. We take it for granted at times. I am usually silent, and these are my thoughts. It is through the hard times that we become established in our faith, and in our trust in God Almighty. I know I will see those I love and I will be in awe and wonder for a while with all that Heaven is. May our days be full of His Presence as we go through the hard times. They make us strong on the inside.

    • I’m so sorry for this delayed reply. I stepped away from my comments for awhile, and am just finding time to get back to them. I’m so sorry to hear about your brother-in-law. We do indeed take life for granted and don’t think about it until something like this happens. I lost an infant son 23 years ago, so I understand sudden loss. What got me through is realizing that everything happens for a reason. The key is to search for the reason. The search helps to deal with the loss. For me, after my son died, I went on a spiritual journey that changed my life. God bless you and your family. I’m so sorry for your loss.
