Happy Friday Loves!!

Oh where does the time go?
I can't believe it's the last Friday and Weekend in July,
and that Monday will already be the first day of August!
Half the summer is already over - Noooooo!!
I was going to post some pictures that I took during the week but my camera and cellphone 
do not want to collaborate with me, therefore I am left without pictures to post - grrrrr!!
I was left picture-less for this post :(

How was your week? My week was a little rough and scary.
My grandmother had a pre-heart attack on Tuesday evening.Thank God she is ok but now we must be really careful with her and what really sucks is that she is really far away. I'm afraid to say that I almost lost it, I am not ready to lose another loved one. It will be exactly one year that I went to Mexico and bid my Grandfather Trini farewell, without knowing that it was actually good-bye forever - it will be 6 months that he passed away and it hurts so much to think about my abuelito, 
I miss him so much :(

As soon as my sister saw that I was in a funk she literally jumped up and dragged
me, along with Miguelito and my mamma to the mall for a day of shopping and just driving our 
worries away. Not only am I blessed with the best family ever but also with the best sister
ever, who always knows when I'm feeling down.
That's my little sister for you, always driving away my worries :)
No wonder they always think I'm younger than her!

Life has a way of making you tougher, when you stumble on problems your supposed to come out
stronger and wiser. In my case it seems I've come out somewhat weaker. I used to be the
stronger one, the rock that the family could rely on, but as I survived my own scares in life
such as a heart condition in which I was told I would never be able to be a mom, or the cancer 
scare a few years back when my Miguelito was just 2yrs old and I thought he would be left without his mommy. I've become more vulnerable because it finally hit me that
 we are all here on borrowed time and tomorrow is not a sure thing.

That's why we must never leave for tomorrow what
we can do today, never go to sleep mad with your significant other, always tell your
loved ones how much you love them and always, always smile
because you my friend are blessed to still be alive to breathe in the fresh air, to see your family's smiling faces, to play around with your children/nieces/nephews/grand-kids, and most importantly enjoy every single moment of your beautiful life!!!

When life gives you lemons, eat them, they are good for you – life knows best.

Have a great weekend loves!!

  1. i like that quote! i'm going to remember that next time i have a bad day haha yes family really is the best. what would we do without them?

  2. Oh Kary this was such a wonderful post. We must always treat each day like it's our last. I know it's so important because sometimes you just don't know. As depressing as that is.

    Thanks lovely for all your encouragement.

    I do have a really belated birthday package that needs to be sent to you. Although there is something I need to add so it might still be a few weeks away. x

  3. Three cheers for family!!

    How is your grandma now?

    And you know what, you don't always have to be the strong one. It's okay to let other people be strong for you sometimes :) I'm so glad to have met you and to see what a beautiful mother you are to your beautiful boy. He is so lucky to have you.

  4. Beautiful post, Kary! Aren't we lucky to have such awesome little sisters?! :) I will definitely keep you and your grandmother in my prayers. I hope life treats you kind. xo

  5. sisters are the best! and you are my sister in New York!! love you lots Kary this was a heart felt post! xoxo

  6. My sweet, sweet sister!!! I've been so wrapped up in my own life that I feel SO sad and guilty I haven't been there for you the way you have been there for me! When I was having such a difficult time trying to not cry at work yesterday you were the one I turned to and you were the one who made me stronger and who made everything okay. I am so thankful for you, you can't even know how much your support means to me! How important your love and friendship is!!!!! And then I read now how rough and scary your week was last week and it pains me to not have been there for you. I thank God that your grandmother is okay!!! I know how much it hurts to have her so far away :( Today I kept asking myself why my family has to live so far apart from each other and you deal with this sadness too :( I'm so glad you have Jesse!!! She is amazing and so kind, just like her older sis :) I love the time we all sisters spent together!!! Nothing makes a bad day better then sisters and moms :) Everything you said in this post is how I've been feeling lately. I feel weak. I am SO affected by my sisters moving away, I feel depressed like I'm the one being left behind. I hate this feeling. I'm definitely not the rock in my family either. We are the cry babies me and you. I never knew about your heart condition or the cancer scare you had. We need to have a heart to heart you and me! I can't imagine all these scary things you've been through. But that's just shows me how good our God is to have Miguelito here - the miracle baby - and to have you here as his mommy! God takes care of us always. As you know I'm sad today now that my family has all left (Maria and my nieces left just this morning!), but this post has given me encouragement. I am not going to be sad, but try and focus on just being thankful for the beautiful time God blessed us with celebrating Madeline's wedding!!!!! I love you Kary!!! Thank you for being there for me :) I didn't mean to put this all in a comment, but that's how much this post affected me!!!!! THANK YOU!!! xoxo I love you!!!!

  7. sisters ALWAYS know... marianne called me after you wrote this and was so touched because she felt the same. I love you two SO VERY MUCH!!!! it does show you how GOOD God is! i didn't even know about your scares :(

    i love you with all my heart <3
