    Interest

    Things that have caught my interest….. if you did not know, I cut my hair last year – well its almost a year- and I am now natural. I have been keeping track through you tube and making silly videos. among other things that has struck my interest – once again, poetry- I used to write poetry alot when I was younger…. and drifted off as I got older. I never cease to amaze me though, how skilled people can be when writing. To compile a group of words together that makes so much sense, for it to have a double meaning, and make others wonder when they hear the…

    terrible!!

    so as you can see I fell off with writing this year, at least publicly!! i actually have been keeping a journal and I write in that, if not daily, definitely weekly. i write about my frustrations, my prayers, and events that have been occurring through my life.i enjoy it and i hope to continue to write. i feel like to publish a blog, one that others would want to read about, has to have some type of meaning and interest. so i am contemplating what to write about for the new year. well Merry Christmas to all!! peace love and blessings!!!

    Life, the People in it and the way we live it

    As I was walking and on my way to church, my mind started wondering and I was thinking of my grandmother and all the stories she used to tell me, and her life here in america. I never thought that I would be one of those people who would have one of those similar stories to tell about their grandparents, … but looking back I can already see what I do have to say. My grandmother is still living but these thoughts just came across my mind. I realize that life is what you make of it but you will always have set backs, distractions, and things to hold you…

    My Mother, and Family

    My mom has always been there for me for as long as I can remember. Anything I wanted and needed she always found a way to provide for me. What I find the hardest to cope with, when she needs something, no one, not even family – is willing to help. This makes me think that family members are useless. Someone PLEASE keep my Mother in prayer. She has done so much I feel that she should be rewarded with more blessings. Peace love and blessings…….. Canela

    Alzheimer's Disease

    My Grandmother is 73 years old and she has Alzheimer’s Disease. It is a very hard thing to watch. At times there are some moments of humor, but for the most part, its very difficult. Its like watching a loved one deteriorate right before your eyes. I see her, my grandmother and I think of all the things that she has done for me, my family and all of her children. It saddens me sometimes at the outcome of this disease. But I still love my grandmother. She has a very huge heart. She has this baby doll that she treats like a real child. If you grab it from…

    I am ME

    When I was in middle school, I joined this group called sister hood. I don’t know why I joined it but I did, and they had us recite this poem before each session….. I think it means more to me now than it did back in the seventh grade. by Virginia Satir Virginia came to write this poem when she was working with an angry fifteen-year-old girlwho had a lot of questions about herself and what life meant. I am me. In all the world, there is no one exactly like me. There are persons who have some parts like me, but no one adds up exactly like me. Therefore,…
