Hello Everyone!! Hope your day is a good one!!

Today is Tuesday…Yes, it sure is and the week has just started…We share so much these days through this amazing networking world we have grown to love…simple and sweet…We share our photographs and articles, posts, even our most embarrassing moments or funny ones…I love looking at the videos and sharing your adventures more than anything in the world learning all the cultures and taking notes about the amazing places I hope to one day visit..the exotic foods…OH..lets not forget the home baked foods I look at those pages too…Some of you are amazing when it comes to baking…I wish I can make all those great things, I mean I can cook and bake but I cannot in a million years make those great things from scratch like you do…I can make an amazing Cheese Cake, Pumpkin Pie and Apple Pie, but that’s about it..         Here are some pics of the pies…

Now when it come’s to roasting I can make a good “Pernil” that’s a Pork Roast shoulder, the last time I made it was in February…that’s like our #1 dish during the holidays and special occasions outside of all the other amazing foods… Like the yellow rice….I love my Pasta too….there are great cooks out there and in my family the men are great cooks…No offense ladies…I love you all but I have to give the men some credit…They sure can cook.

I enjoy all those great things….But what I don’t enjoy is the videos that are lately being posted about people beating each other up…Let me explain….

Today I was browsing around my computer and as I was sending the usual messages…I came across someone’s post…this particular person posted a video of her younger sibling beating someone…she was proud of this video…Now I don’t know the reason for the fight between the girls but this is not in my eyes something I enjoy  watching or get a kick of clicking the “like” button…I wont give such video the satisfaction to even look at it…and I for one don’t condone violence of any kind…

I noticed that was not the only video being posted around, there were other’s in different sites and people are just posting them as if they are just fun to watch…I also realized that people pretty much have the right to do whatever they want… but I have the right to my opinion too…I don’t have to “like” your post and I am sorry…But I refuse to accept your requests to liking it…I mean you no harm by this…Let’s just END THE VIOLENCE NOT MAKE IT LOOK AS IF IS OK TO LET IT GO ON…IT’S BAD ENOUGH IT GOES UNNOTICED IN SOME PLACES.

We want to teach our children that abuse is not the the way to success but the door to something worse…No respect for human kind or anything around them…That is one thing I will not stand for…I still fight against these type of behaviors everyday and see this type of conduct in teenagers on a daily basis…they don’t learn this in their school…figure out where do they see, hear or learn these things….I shouldn’t be the one to point it out..

It’s wonderful to see great things on line…but it’s disturbing to see these horrible acts of abuse…and it’s even worse when you have to see it happening in front of you…If I was to post a video of a woman I saw today at the parking lot by the Doctor’s office holding her infant child in a protecting shield position while her (assuming)boyfriend was punching her around…the world would judge me…Instead as the human I am and of course natural instinct fact being I have walked in her shoes…I went to rescue her…she instead replied…please walk away….while he said mind your business followed by a nasty curse…I stood my ground and said…she is my business and so is the child she protects in her arms…He said really you want some of this…I said do you want some of what I have for you…I kept him talking a bit longer while I hit the speed dial button and I called for help…In matter of 5 minutes help was there…

What happened after she was rescued I have no idea but…I am glad she got help and hopefully they will give her everything she need’s and I hope she understand that it’s not necessary to take any abuse from anyone at all…


Please READ  “I GOT FLOWERS TODAY” BY: Paulette Kelly

I stand alone, and I will do it again a thousand times for any person in need…I will not stand for any of it…Abuse that is….

Shake and Bake in the other hand anytime you want to share your baking secrets I am open for suggestions…Reading your blogs absolutely you know it, I love poetry, music, reading about God makes me happy too…movies of all sorts, and sports…I love an adventure just as much as the next person….and I love nature….

I want to share something with you all….I found this page in the parking lot while waiting for my ride to go home…someone dropped it they most of ripped it off some book….

It reads…”This is the day the Lord has made”


God determines the number of your days, but you determine how they are spent. The Psalmist said, “this is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” Yesterday is a cancelled check, tomorrow is a promissory note, today is all you’ve got. And you can begin life over today, if you love by these words: “today I will delete from my diary two days-yesterday and tomorrow.  Yesterday was for learning; tomorrow will be a consequence of what I do today. Today I  will face life with the conviction that this day will never return, that it may be the last opportunity contribute because there’s no guarantee I’ll see tomorrow. Today I will be courageous enough not to  let the opportunity pass me by; my only alternative will be to succeed. Today I will invest my most valuable resource, my time, into my most important possession, the life God has given me. I’ll spend each minute purposefully, making today a unique opportunity. I’ll tackle each obstacle knowing that with God’s help I can overcome it. Today I will resist doubt and pessimism and warm my world with a smile. I’ll maintain a strong faith, expect nothing but the best, take time to be happy, see every task as an opportunity to honor the Lord, and endeavor to leave His footprints on the hearts of those I meet.

John Boykin wrote, “Time is your life–nothing more, nothing less. The way you spend your hours and your days, is the way you spend your life”. So pray “Lord, help me to maximize this day.”

After reading this I felt so good inside and I hope you do too…I am not sure where it came from but I hope it serve’s it’s purpose….The message is appreciated by me….

You are all welcome to comment….I hope you had a wonderful day today, enjoy your evening and sweet dreams…

You are special

20 May

You are special.

You are special

20 May

Hello Everyone…I hope your weekend is great and a very relaxing one.

Happy readings, posting and sharing with the World!!

Are you special?

~We know you take care of everyone and everything we do around our home or work is a pretty “Super job”…”You are special” for holding it together, so please give yourself credit…Cheers to you…

~We also know that we can only do up to so much before we burned out…(like my air-conditioner is at this time).

I was at the hospital as I mention yesterday…and I was trying to work on a Post, the title is “A Mother’s Love” it was posted in accident(by me)unfinished…Sorry about that…I will like to say; Thank you to those who have read it and clicked “Like”, I really appreciated.

Today I am going to finish delivering my message, but I have chosen the title “You are special”…I hope you enjoy your reading and by the way…some people were asking me if my son was home…well..

My Son is Finally Home…Thank God for his blessings & answering my prayers.. You are Awesome God!! I love you!!…

When I believed that I had finally come to the end of the struggles in my life, I start the juggling with other sort of issues and so I decided to take a stand…Do you want to know why?

~Because I believe I am special.

In the past 2 months I have been trying everything possible to get my son’s faith back..He had somehow lost his way…He is only 13 years old…I’ve survived domestic violence and my children experience the events…Last year alone I battled death 3 times almost dying on my children during several surgeries…God saved me…I have seen his miracles and what he is capable of…my children have too…but somewhere between the beginning of this year someone has managed to turn my son against the believes of the God’s will and what he stands for…Turning his faith into nothing…As I prayed in silence and hoped for my son to recover…I was judged, and misunderstood…I was even treated like if my son being there was my fault…

I have to deal with my daughter living in a different state now…miles away from home…struggles going in all directions for her and she just enter the reality world…She just turned 21…I miss her and worry about her every second of the hour, because that’s what a mother does…It’s a mother’s love, your family always comes first…

I took a deep breath and said to myself…relax, sit back, let them talk and accept what they say…take their lemons and enjoy the juice…Time is just turning in circles it doesn’t move from side to side or up and down…

Guess what! the world also turns in circles…

As a single parent life could be stressful…but I manage to take day by day with the Glory of God and the strengths left in me to fight everyday for all I believe…Never to give up…even when family can’t help you with their ears…I like to be direct and I am not going to soften the impact of my assertive words…however I am not going to dilute my message I am going to say it straight out…I have every right to speak up, pursue any opportunity that presents itself to me, as I hope you do too…and I will start setting boundaries….I have no reason why to explain my feelings to anyone, or explain why I want something, I am going to stay focus on what I need, what I want and most importantly what I think…You should too..

As I watched my son laying in that hospital bed, I could tell he was wondering whether or not he would go home soon…if he would say a prayer and it will be answered…He was still complaining about me taking away all of his video games systems(believe me he is not going to let that one go anytime soon)but his education and social life is more important than losing himself in those video games for long periods of time…after all he is lucky I didn’t dumped them in the garbage on pick up day, which is what I originally intended to do…I know he was desperate to go home, and I wanted him to get better and of course home as well.

I as a mother and a professional have so many things to deal with at once, but I happen to do pretty damn well… some stress in the middle, yes of course…but who don’t have stress, let’s be honest now…I am sure you do too.

I will like you to take a moment for yourself and sit back…Take a deep breath walk into the sunlight or moonlight whichever you prefer, take a break and let go of all the stress for just one hour…Listen to me…there’s no job we cannot do, and motherhood is not always sugar and spice or peaches and cream…some mom’s out there wouldn’t have it any other way, You are special thumbs up to you…

I have been told by someone who probably has no children and no idea what is like to be a mom(no offense if you are reading this)that…The Ideal Mom, belongs to an Ideal World…Now, my friends as far as I am concerned there is only one world and it’s pretty darn ideal to me.

I guess what she meant was that in the real world a mother needs to have a satisfying career with enough hours in the day and of course energy to spend time with their children…specially if they are just babies, now we all know babies need more attention than teenagers…there is no question about that…but our youth cannot be forgotten either….

I may have minor issues, so what! I am not the first nor will be the last working mom who has…and even if my job is at home…I still have other duties and responsibilities… I make sure that at the end of the day all work is done…there are times when I don’t go to sleep until 1am…Who said a parent’s job is ever done…

We as parents with young children still have to help out with homework, attend P/T conferences, and so much more…In this world full of competitive culture, there’s definitely greater stress in every level…the more that’s expected of us the more we demand from ourselves to be the best mother, wife, girlfriend and loving friend…we try everything possible to be superheros even without trying…sometimes we just don’t see it and other times we don’t get the token of appreciation we want or deserve.

Sometimes feeling the weight down on our shoulders can effect our professional and personal life and it’s no longer fun for anybody or healthy, stress can sure take a person down if you let it….So Don’t…

We need to put ourselves every now and then to the top of the list and take care of ourselves first to be able to carry on  a good job all around…I know for experience that making others happy feels good, because that’s what I always do, making everyone else around me happy… We are no immortals, we need to take time to relax and breathe… do not ignore your own needs because when you do that’s when the world becomes raw…

Treat yourself to the Spa, take a load off, find the time to relax with the hubby watch a movie…If you enjoy the fitness life then go to the Gym and work those muscles off, let all the stress out on the treadmill, or whatever other source of machine you like…(I don’t do Gym’s, I should, maybe shed some pounds)…by the way let’s not forget catching up with your friends..remember them..they can feel neglected sometimes too.

Honestly do you want to hear the reality of all this…

You are exhausted, your time is crunched, short, and sometimes you are so frustrated that you want to blow up! sometimes it feels like relaxing is such a hard effort and you choose to give up maybe not even try..Don’t give up….Do it…You are not alone and you are special…

In today’s World there are hundreds of woman going through the same issues…and if I asked you to write your problems and put them in a bag…That bag would be passed around and everyone else is picking a paper from that bag….they are taking other peoples problems and as they read them…they want to take their own problems back…everyone’s issues are more severe than others….

Look, there is no Job to big or to small that we cannot complete….That’s why we are Special…So take some time aside this coming weekend make a date for yourself and speak up, stop ignoring your needs and take charge…always respect yourself and respect those around you…love yourself first and understand that if you don’t take care of you no one will…

Remember to savor the good times and set aside the stress, exercise your options remember that family time is important and you need to be relaxed to be able to enjoy them….catch your breath and realize that you have the world at your hands all the time and all year round…One time you set aside to enjoy yourself it’s not so bad…

I hope you have a good one…Remember, “You are special”

I welcome your comments….Happy reading to you all and enjoy the rest of the weekend…Until next time..

A Mother’s Love

18 May

A Mother’s Love.

A Mother’s Love

18 May

I had an opportunity to be around a great deal of mother’s…One thing I know for sure is that no mother should outlive their children and no child should leave their parents too soon, in this world we have no control of what life has install for us…we either take the good with the bad and make the best of it…and when life throw lemons at us we can make some delicious lemonade, or just be sour about it…I choose to move on.

We live in a world where everything we do is somehow judged by everyone around us, all they need is a gable and reside the words court is in session…I for starters~I’m starting to become a little frustrated with being judged, it is like having a fortune cookie in front of you and opening it up…you read it and realized…hey this fortune is like…making sense…if you believe in signs and all that other sort of stuff , I mean you are allowed to believe in something, it’s just the judging part that becomes a bit too overwhelming. 

I have been away from posting my blogs for a few weeks…I’ve been giving myself time to think…what I have realized is that the worst part of all this is staying away from something I love to do which is writing…even if doesn’t make any sense at all…I love to speak my mind and share my thoughts with you and having the opportunity to read all of your stories one by one…I enjoy my work but I love my family the most…

My Son was admitted to Pediatrics ICU last week, he has not been a happy camper…I mean who is, having to be in a hospital for a week and no privacy at all…Nurses at your corner 24hrs poking you with needles and the annoying sounds of the vital machines…God, those machines are really a pain in the rear…he hates the fact of not been able to move from his bed or be in the comfort of his own home and that can be aggravating for a 13 year old boy…I have never left his side since the day he was born.

During our stay at the hospital I’ve had my typical visits with the normal Doctors and of course let’s not forget the lovely Social Workers…Nothing wrong with a visit from my friends…but is there a reason why they are coming to see me? ….

Feel free to ask your questions and leave your comments…Let’s talk about your experiences and how you cope with them…

I am open for a good conversation…It’s not always comfortable when people jump to conclusions and make assumptions that are not real…they make reality seam so unreal…so sad…so scary…Never judge a book by it’s cover, the story may be the best ever written…
