Fortunate

June 10, 2010 at 3:30 pm (Uncategorized)

Life is on such a crazy path right now! Stephanie’s baby shower is on Saturday, Jeannie & Joel are coming into town and I still have FIFTY million things to do! I hope that they get them all done! I have FAITH that I will and even go to sleep at a decent hour!!

I’m fortunate to have the things in my life that I have. A roof over my head, some food to eat, encouraging friends, supportive family, love on the way, someone who tells me he loves me every day, moments of laughter and better health than I anticipated. Some times you have to be fortunate for the things that you do HAVE instead of focusing on the things that you don’t have. Thinking today about all the things I’ve lost, all the places I haven’t been because of a lack of something or money I don’t have. I realized then that THIS is my ultimate struggle. I will pull through and know where I came from and what I did to get here. God help me! Thank heaven tomorrow is Friday!!

Life

May 19, 2010 at 5:01 pm (Uncategorized)

I believe that you create the life you want to lead. If you don’t like something, change it. If it won’t change, alter it to fit you. Life has to be about living and loving. You can’t wake up every day angry or upset. You can’t go through life and walk around with your head held down. You have to be looking towards the sky. You have to have big dreams around this town. You have to just be happy. Smiling is important. You don’t want frown lines. It’s important to be the best possible you you can be. It’s important to wake up to the days you’ve been missing. If you sit at home for so long, you will never enjoy the beauty of outdoors.

I think it’s time to change it up, no matter what it costs.

The Middle

May 16, 2010 at 5:16 am (Uncategorized)

This is my sister’s song. But, right now… I don’t think she minds if I borrow it 🙂 Love you boba.

Hey,
Don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out,
Or looked down on.
Just try your best,
Try everything you can.
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves
When you’re away.

[Chorus]
It just takes some time,
little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything, everything will be just fine,
Everything, everything will be alright. (alright)

Hey,
You know they’re all the same.
You know you’re doing better on your own, (on your own)
So don’t buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough (good enough)
For someone else.

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out, (feel left out)
Or looked down on.
Just do your best, (just do your best)
Do everything you can. (do everything you can)
And don’t you worry what their bitter hearts (bitter hearts)
Are gonna say.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!!

I am truly blessed to have you in my life. You are strong, supportive, wonderful, beautiful, courageous, admirable, inspirational and above all just amazing. Throughout the years, I have always had you to look up to. What a great role model 🙂 I hope that when I’m a mother, my kids will look up to me the way that Stephanie and I look up to you. You have always let us lean on you through the tough times and you have always let us be ourselves no matter what the cost. You care about us deeply and inspire us daily. I love your crazy phone calls, your lasagna, your surprise trips with treats, holidays with you, laughing hysterically until your veins show and just being around you. You are my hero. I survive because of you. I love you Mommy (and soon to be grandma!)

¡Feliz cumpleaños!

Feliz Cumpleaños Mima!!

Mima would have been 106 today. 106, wow. I was so blessed in my life to not only know my grandmother but to know my great grandmother. I remember the way we use to call her Gizmo, the way she use to poke us/stare at us, the way she would laugh as if she knew what was going on, her feisty attitude, her moo moos, how happy she was to see us when we surprised her, how loving and caring she was, when we wanted to use her phone because she had a different line than Grandma and Grandpa and the way I ignored her other line so I could keep on with my conversation (lol). I miss her. It’s been a year and 3 months since she’s been gone and it still feels like this is all a dream. I still drive down to Miami thinking that Mima, Grandma and Carmen will still be there. Now they have each other, in heaven.

Te extraño
