Virtues Pick ... Devotion.

Funny enough when I got this virtue pick it touch a very sensitive area. I am devoted to my kids and my husband and I will try my hardest to keep the family unit together, so this virtue is very fitting.

Commitment is a very strong word that most people try to honor but few really understand the meaning of it. To me commitment means being there body, soul and heart for someone. It means facing challenges and working through them to keep the commitment going or even make it stronger. This is what it means... what I feel but sometimes I struggle to do this.

For my kids, I sometimes get aggravated easily and though I spend most of my free time with them, do feel my patience running thin. With this virtue I really need to 'discern the purpose to which life call me' and be a more loving, caring and patient mother.

For my husband, I tend to let my mind and my insecurities waver my devotion. I know my love for him is true, I know we have come far in this life's journey together, but sometimes I fear we are more far apart from where we started together. I do not want to feel this way and I struggle to understand our relationship since life and kids have changed us. With this virtue I really need to remember why we fell in love and 'keep faith with my commitment'.

I do sometimes think my life is a battlefield. When I think I have just gotten past one hurdle, another one comes at me head on. So with this virtue I have to daily remember what I hold dear and devote myself to preserving the people and the relationships I have around me.

Food for thought...


  1. When I read this, I was reminded of the vow my husband and I made to each other on our wedding day. "For better or worse, in sickness and health, til death do us part."

  2. Devotion is a tough one to definte, but not something that I've ever wavered in with my husband, my littles, and my pups. <3

  3. Commitment and devotion are absolutely two virtues that help to hold the family together. xx

  4. commitment is def a big one for virtue, Thanks for sharing

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…
