I AM Transparent

I Love Hard

I AM A Believer

Always a Dreamer, but not really an over achiever. Just loving what I do to achieve the dream. From a major loss to love again, God’s grace and HIS mercy endures. I have had to rely on my Faith, my Family and my Friends to get me through.

In November 2015, I started my #JustLuvSeries writing quotes to help me identify the insecurities I was living with.

In March 2016, I started The Poetry Journal blog writing short stories on life, love and travel. Like, wow Lord this is just like you said it was going to be! This was becoming fun!

Now “The Love Experience? Lord!

So Grateful

It is hard to describe the butterflies inside when I realize how much the Lord loves me.

In August 2017, The Book Release Party! I could not see the success, until I saw my Mother cry! I love to make my Mother smile. Her and my grandmother are both a part of who I am. My Guardian angel, always in the spirit. I am so glad I made it through. I didn’t lose. Praising HIM every step of my way. Yes, even with the wine in the background. Just keeping it real honest. We sipped fine wine until it was time to go home.

A special thanks to everyone for supporting me and helping me with my sons. You all are a part of me.

Yes, even you EMAV.

Alone

I can't always focus on the loss, although certain days without him reminds me of how much I miss him. I get angry sometimes and I can be very sad. I am alone in this. That's in my head.

I gain strength on the things that make me happy; big dreams, yet small goals.

My Lord reminds me that I am not alone. It's only by HIS grace and his mercy I am still here. A Mother for her three sons.

Alone, but not alone anymore.

I saw God’s Glory!

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.

Love ❤️,
Raquél

Reward Yourself

Hello to you all! I am just getting back from a summer vacation to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Celebrating good friendships, birthdays and my new book release. Take the time to rewards yourself, even if it's a small success.

This photo of myself with these books stacked in crates on the streets in San Juan shouted out to me. My beloved friend, took the picture. To her it was just a bunch of books, but I saw something different. A perfect opportunity to use this photo as a marketing piece. I love it!

"The Love Experience" ~ Blog Edition.

Get all the tea on a mysterious love overseas and a lesson or two about loving you!
