Wow! It’s been a long time since I have blogged. May 31st to be exact.
Where was I?
Working, celebrating and planning!
My oldest son graduated from high school and I’m so thankful to my Lord that He allowed us to see this big accomplishment.
I am thankful for everyone who has contributed with their time, prayers, thoughts, and financial blessings. Thank you. I pray that my son will move through life making decisions that will build his success and will help others
What A Blessing!
As we close out the school year, Lord I am grateful for your mercy. With everything going on in our school systems, let the school administrators revisit policies and procedures for the next school year.
- School violence
- School fights
- The use of cellphones in class
- Disrespectful students
- Disrespectful administrators
- Overcrowded schools
And the list continues to grow. I’m just grateful my sons made it through another year of school. I’m praying for a safe summer time off for everyone.
All I could do was kick off my shoes and relax my feet and just kick it.
Congratulations Tillman Fertitta
Your team did an excellent job! I am impressed.
Many of us live and never travel. With the responsibility of living life daily, failure is a part of life! We know that life’s choices has consequences, and this is why we travel! To get away from it all and just breathe and relax!
Lately I’ve been seeking God’s will because I want to know what God’s will is for me. Although I have been taught, I wanted to know for myself what the word says and what is true.
I searched scriptures relating to God’s will. He knows the plans he has for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you and to give you hope and a future. Well, that is promising. We should also give thanks in all circumstances. Not a few, but all circumstances. That’s like saying, Thank you Lord, all day everyday.
He wants us to come to a knowledge of the Truth. What is truth to you?

Trip No. 10
Dominican Republic ~ When I am there I feel free. Flying into the capital (Santo Domingo) and a two hour scenic drive to a Romantic beachfront property in Uvero Alto and then back to the capital… Lord, I’m so in love!
You don’t want me to acknowledge the pain.
You only want me to acknowledge the good again.
Now that I’ve turned my back to you, I know you’re hurting too, but what are you teaching me?
Not to be blue?
Just as you think of me daily, the consequences of your actions reminds me daily not to let you back in until you can acknowledge the pain I’m in!
What you’ve learned to accept in your culture may not be ok in mine. If you can’t live without me, then you have to confess that what you feel is true.
Which is… You can’t be without me and you don’t want to be blue!

Love with good intentions.
Even when you doubt that it’s true love, love them anyway.
Love with the intent that they may never love you the same way you love, but don’t take it personally.
Love is a choice and when you are faced with choosing to love someone you will know.
After you’ve loved (with or without boundaries) and you choose to leave that love,
leave knowing that your love did not fail, because you chose to love with good intentions.
Even though we fail in love,
Love never fails us.
Always remember, no matter how bad some things are, they could always be worst and no matter how good things are, there is always room for things to get better. Better is always around the corner.
You are one of the best, because there are so many great things about you, that if you get caught up on focusing on one thing, you might miss what’s most important. ~You. ~ Anonymous
There comes a time for cleansing and a time to reflect on your personal behaviors. A time to acknowledge where you were wrong or you may have experienced an interaction between you and another person and you felt they may have done the wrong thing. There is Power and Redemption in forgiveness.
I am a witness that it removes the hatred and the ill feelings of anger and perhaps one day you will be able to move forward in peace with or without their apology. I want to start from within and work my way through it. Yes, my travel experiences have been very exciting and fun, but it was not always the right thing to do and I am not sure how many people I have abused along the way. I am sorry for the abuse. I chose to open that door to love.
I wanted my eyes to see, my ears to hear, my nose to smell, my feet and my fingers to touch, and my tongue to taste the essence of true love. I was exposed to it all. I was all in. I truly loved.
My love experience had some astonishing and enlightening facts and secrets that were revealed to me. Revelations of good and bad can have its way of turning lives around and it is ok to acknowledge that revelation. His divine truth is only to be embraced and never rejected. Through acknowledgement and acceptance is when there will be a true change. Love is a state of being. It defines who you are and whose you are. When I can forgive, I can say I have accepted the full responsibility of love.
