Summer Challenge Blog #12 - Injury... Life's Ups and Downs!

For me I have lived with many scrapes and booboos all my life. I have a scar on my knees for when I feel off the bike while trying to ramp off a contraption my brother built. I have a scar by my eye when my neighbor threw a stone at my face and I have one from diving off the side of a boat and hitting my back on a rock. 

These were not considered major injuries and neither have I found myself experiencing anything  traumatic or scaring to talk about. However when I had my son I did pop a blood vessel in my leg during the pregnancy and lost natural movement in my leg for a few months. Then when I had my daughter I had to undergo emergency surgery to remove the placenta because it had fused to the lining in my stomach and refused to come down. 

These are what I consider serious and life changing events. Both times I had difficulty giving birth... but worth it in the end.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. 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.


 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…
