I’m not going to be doing any heavy cleaning like I do for the holidays  but I definitely will move some chairs to get the dust ball, and transfer my  plants I think they out grew their pots , God is good all the time.

Confession    

 I am coming to the end of lent in preparation of the celebration of Easter. It’s a time for baptism, joy, life and rebirth. After all the praying and fasting there is one more thing left for me to do, in order to go forward with a clean soul and enjoy every moment in this joyful celebration. I am going to be making my first confession ever, I always do the whole 40 days of lent but never shed myself of my sins. I remember my mom always used to tell us going to school, we don’t have to confess to anyone but God, so when we had confession time I wouldn’t go, but coming back into church and getting to understand more I know now I have to do this. I saw a video of (Archbishop Fulton Sheen) and he was talking about confession and why we should go and he said, when we suppress our guilts it is there for eternity unless it is forgiven, when it is forgiven it’s completely bolted out, well how do we now through the mercy of god and the fullness of faith in christ how are our sins forgiven?  by confession, what is confession? nudity of the souls stripping ourselves of all false excuses and charm pretenses and revealing ourselves as we really are.  I take this as a recycling of our life and a rebirth of a new life, God is good all the time. Have a great Easter.  
 

For my Future Grandkids

For if you come and I hope you do, I will be patiently waiting for your arrival  and I will welcome you just as the sky is blue and the sun is bright or the stars full the sky on a warm night. And I should hold you in my arms for the first time and check every inch of your body with kisses. And I should ask for you to be with me every other weekend how else will you know me . I will teach you everything for I am your past and you are my future I will be so happy with you.

Home Sweet Home

Yesterday  hd and I were talking and we decided it was time to build our house in the Islands near the beach. This  would be our first big project together and I am super excited and thrilled and hope he we would agree on everything.  We look on Houzz web site and saw lots of beautiful homes and fell in love with two of them.  We want to build a little guest cottage first,  before we get started on our family home, in this way we will have extra money coming in and also we could be hands on for the next project. This little cottage is one of  many homes we saw, it reminds me of the houses I grew up around.  Nothing to big but livable, inviting and able to clean in a second.  At the end of the year I will be heading down to get things started. 

Leaving Barbados thirty years ago and coming here I never thought I would ever miss home because everything here are so exciting and I love it.  But I think its time for me to relax and I want to do it the Island way, I miss the beaches the breeze and mostly having a garden. Whenever I go home I stay with my mom and it is really great seeing and being with my family for that short time we have together, however I don’t like moving that much or talking and all this running around or even going over to they house I just like to stay put, you would think people in the island would be lay back.  I don’t know where they are going because the place is not big but I do get they mean well and I love them for that. By the time I get back to New York I’m more tired then before. So having a place of my own will make me a little more settled and give me a little more time to hide out and have a cocktail before letting anyone know I am in the land. God is good.

Alone Time

Tonight it’s me my PJ Chocolate Truffles and the Hallmark Channel countdown, I’m in a different world. These flowers I had like 3 weeks now and they all die out, but I keep wetting them with cold water and I just love the look vintage.The red rose I had in the freezer for five years now it belong to my sister-in-law, we were all given a red rose at her funeral and I always wanted to do something for her with the rose. I decided to place it with the vintage flowers and it fit perfect. Hopefully it would last a next five years and I would get to enjoy it at every holiday. God is good.
