Wrong choices = Consequences


My son’s bike got stolen this weekend, and it completely confused him. After all I have been trying to teach him about doing the right thing and making the correct choices he could not understand why it was taken. He understood it was a wrong action, he understood the person chose acted wrongly, but he wondered what consequences he was going to face.

He wanted us to call the police, he wanted the police to check every house and he did not want the guy to get away with it. I was sorry he lost it, because he rides his bike everyday, but I also chose to use this as a learning lesson. I told him that although we would not get the bike back, the person who took it will eventually experience a consequence for his actions in due time.

I did ask him what he thought should happen to the thief, and after some time he said…

“Well his mommy should make him give it back and tell him not to do it again.”

I was happy and proud of that response. In a way I saw that all my effort and teaching did not fall on deaf ears. He will make the right choices and he will learn from the wrong one. So something good did come from his loss…. And he is also getting a new bike.  :)

All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.

Enjoy.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.


This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
