My Friend... My Sister

Do you ever meet someone for the first time although they have always been there?
Have you ever really looked and realize you are seeing someone for less than they are worth?
Have you seen through someone although they are right there in front of you?

Sometimes it is easy to take people for granted.
Sometimes it is easy to categorize someone without even really getting to know them.

Have you ever focus so strongly on someone's negative trait and fail to see the positive in them?
Have you ever thrown stones when you have glass windows yourself?

Sometimes I forget that is a journey of self development and the people who come into it leave marks... memories.
Sometimes those people come to mean so much that they become more than a friend... they become a sister.

My mother said that people drift into and out of your life like angels. sometimes their stay is momentarily, sometimes they stay a life-time. For us it has and is a lifetime.

You are someone who can really drive me crazy.
You are someone who can get under my skin with a simple comment.
You are someone who is always in my life.
You can make me cry... but you can dry my tears.
You can listen when I feel as if no-one else does.
You can make me laugh till I want to pee myself.
You can be a mother to my kids.
You can offer advice on things that I take too personal.
You can be there when I most need it.

You are my friend... my sister.

So to all my bitches out there ... ;)  ..... Thank You.


  1. This is beautiful.

  2. Love it. My sister is totally my person. When she went on her honeymoon for a week, I felt lost not talking to her.

  3. You're so right! We often take people for granted. I have a girls trip coming up with my sisters, and look forward to having some bonding time with them. - Angela

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…
