August as It Was

In a nutshell. Mood. Hump Day. Shenanigans. Not at the top of the mountain but not at the bottom either. Hanging on as always with a smile as life is for the living and no one can’t take that away from you. August as it was, thank you. A blessed and beautiful September dear ones. Make it worthy, the month of your breakthroughs. Faith is all we got; keep it alive. Much love!

Heaven Is a Breath of Fresh Air

Shrine of Schoenstatt, Homestead, FL

I went to an annual “feel good” field trip of sorts with my Sisters in Christ, women of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds blended in perfect harmony, for a meeting of the minds and recharge of soul, at the littlest of shrines I have ever seen in my life, the Shrine of Schoenstatt. No, it is not a chapel or a church but a shrine and as per the name indicates, it is a Catholic movement originated in Germany.

The little piece of heaven is a breath of fresh air, located in the middle of a rural agricultural area with many nurseries, surrounded by flowers, fruits and plants and birds. It is the most tranquil, beautiful, spiritual and peaceful area to walk around considering its location. A great place for those looking to relax, quiet meditation and much needed prayer.

Two days later, we were at it again, at one of the sister’s home recharging our spiritual batteries.

The burdens were written two months ago during the church annual festival. They were our constant “companion” during our bible study meetings, with some even taking them home for additional graces but then after much spiritual exercises and prayers, one by one to the fire they went, two baskets full.

Love, Mom!

London, England

My little nugget, my flower, the fudge to my ice cream. It has been a long road, an extremely difficult week but you have always been a blessing, carrying yourself through the daily hurdles with so much joy. The character and amount of love in your heart made you a stronger person than yesterday. The fortitudes that carried through are visible in your soul. There are no words to describe the immense love I have for you everyday. May you find some sunshine and may the angels up in the bluest sky smile down on you.

Love, mom.
