I have worked more than twenty years from retail shops to hardware stores, and non profit organizations; earning a decent paycheck to take care of my family.
I have always dreamed of going places far away to learn more about other cultures. Fulfilling my inner being to be better, set good examples and to give back to the people in my circle.
I don't have money to show for my return on my investment, but what I have learned from travel is just priceless.
The ability to embrace other people and their circumstances, whether it's being better off financially or being less fortunate, this is a lesson in itself that has changed my life.
I can't stop loving because someone has less than what I have; this only encourages me to work harder to find a way to touch and encourage people to dream bigger than their current situations.
Old San Juan taught me the importance of preserving life's history. To build on what you have, little by little, piece by piece, brick by brick, dollar by dollar, and heart to heart. The fruit of your ancestors hard labor should not go unnoticed.
When I walked through Old San Juan, I could see the smiles, the good times, the music, the hard labor, the family bonds, the authentic food, the hills, the brick roads, the sea, and most importantly I could see me!
Lord, you blessed me to see Old San Juan, not only did I see your Glory, I also had fun. What did I do to deserve this? I'm so grateful.
