First snow!

I’ve been sick with the flu taking a lot of meds.  However, I wake up this morning looking at this beauty.

This beauty makes me want to begin Christmas decoration. I’m blessed for this beauty, no matter if I’m still sick.  I’m going back to bed, still not feeling good.

Tragedy in Las Vegas

Please pray for those we lost last night in Las Vegas and for their friends and loved ones. I don’t understand why these senseless acts continue causing so much pain and heartache. It’s a helpless feeling watching this and not knowing what to do to ease the suffering. We can help by changing ourselves, let’s be kinder and more loving to everyone we meet. Smile at a stranger. Say a kind word to a co-worker. Make time for a child.
Let’s create a ripple effect and honor those lost by being better people.

May God bless and hold close the innocent killed in this senseless tragedy.


Finally, great news!

After eight long days watching the news and waiting to communicate with my family, finally I got to talk to them. The communication is very limited and the only connection is a phone land. Any other cellular company like T-Mobile, Verizon, or AT&T they don’t work. It’s incredible how much people pay for expenses cellular phones and the only ones working it’s the land lines or the local company.

My in-laws lost everything they have and when I spoke to them I can feel their sadness. They were prepared for the hurricane because their home is close to the coast, still it’s difficult to see the damages. My brother and my sister live in two different areas and they didn’t lost as much. The people in Puerto Rico doesn’t have electric power, water is running out, short on food, and unable to go back to work. A few stores are beginning to open but it’s difficult to get there. Besides they have a curfew from 6pm to 5am for safety and the wait for help it’s moving slowly.

I’m happy to have the chance to hear from them and knowing they are safe. For now, I’m waiting for the postal service to begin working so I can send a few packages and money.
Thank you to everyone who are keeping Puerto Rico in their prayers. I know my people from Puerto Rico are strong and they will get the help they need.

Coloring books

I’ve been obsessed with coloring books for adults ever since my grandkids gave me one for Christmas last year. I can spend hours coloring one page. I love the mix and match colors and it can take me a few hours to finish one page. I’m not kidding, last night I finished a page I started on Thursday night. My collections of coloring pens, markers, and pencils is growing too fast. Plus, I’ve a total of ten books. My next purchase will be the Harry Potter or Supernatural. I find coloring very entertaining, relaxing, and it makes me feel stressed free.

Yesterday when I was in Pinterest and found a few pins from other people coloring. I immediately noticed they look like a professional did it. The use of the colors was brilliant. I begin to compare the ones I’ve made and instead of feeling great for my work of art I felt the opposite. I thought I wasn’t talented enough and I should give my books away. I want my pages to look as beautiful like theirs.

I’ll never understand why I’m so hard on myself. The books supposed to be for fun, feel relaxed, and stressed free. A few minutes later I find the situation a little silly and I went back to my coloring books. My pages would not look like a Picasso, but they are mine. I’m working on a whale from my Ocean Lost coloring book and it’s going to be a pretty one.
