Greed is an ugly default... Sharing is Caring
My daughter Greta Garda Arellano Fuentes
She graduated with Honors- “IT” (Information Technology)
Honorable Mention and Outstanding Internship Awards.
I know, I know… I just imagined myself to be there with her… My avatar did a great job! A very proud MOM I really am! <3
Mother is HEAVEN
Subsistence pal. True-hearted
WOMAN… Full of LIFE!
Today is my mom’s birthday. She was already gone but I see and talk to her in my dreams, whenever I seek guidance or some advise. And most often her advises worked on me.
For instance, one of them, like 2 years ago, I noticed a little dark spot on my upper right cheek and it was getting darker and darker. I applied different bleaching products that was prescribed to me by my dermatologist, but none of which ever help to fade away the dark spot. And then one night I dreamed that I was with my mom and she told me the medication that I should used instead. Believe it or not, the result was amazing. It worked!
It really feels good to know that she’s still around whenever I need a mother touch. Yes, I know I am already a mother but it just feels so joyful to have my mother with me even only through my dreams.
A Blessed Birthday
You’ll always be missed and loved
I love you Mamang.

Today’s Cafe Siesta is to wake up your memories and experience some random flashbacks… by simply closing your eyes :)
This was another mail that I received from a friend of mine… A long one but WELL worth it…. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.
and he said,
“I hate to admit it but I can remember all of these as I’m sure you will also. I remember these things…but I do it with very fond memories! When life was soooo much easier and slow. ”
Although, I wasn’t born in this era… I find this song very awesome :)
I remember that I loved to play with my walking dolls that were almost as tall as I was… I had plates, cups and saucers made of papers that I created myself.
I enjoyed running around with my siblings… They would bring me with them to a river bank where it was not allowed for children to play. One day they sneaked out and brought me with them, I was only 5 years old back then and when my father found us there, Yay! He scolded the big ones but he spared me… hehehe… Because he believed I was innocent :)
I watched Tom and Jerry, Sesame Street after school. Favorite TV shows and series were Wild Wild West, Different Strokes, Bob Hopes… hmmmm I feel happy already while thinking of those things… I even could smell the donuts that my mom used to bake! Yummmy!
Here are some pictures I was able to scan from one of my old albums… :)
Okay, you can begin now to spend some time to close your eyes and imagine how it was… :) and then you can grab your favorite tea or coffee and savor it and enjoy it to the last drop :)
I love you guys!
This is our hand-made Christmas Tree :) My children and I made this one as early as 1 in the morning and we finished it at 5 in the morning, December 1, 2013… 10 hours before my flight coming back to the Kingdom :)
I won’t be able to be with my kids this Christmas but the memories and togetherness of making our Family Christmas Tree with them count the most.
The joy of making it and sharing thoughts on how to do it was already a Blissful Family Christmas.
I feel great to tell everyone that I am now single.
Three years after my separation (2005), I have filed a marriage annulment (2008).
At long last this year 2013, last September 30, the court has decided and ordered that my marriage was null and void.
I am so happy as ever.
Happy because a new chapter begins in my life and I can move on forward.
Some of you may wonder and would ask me, “do you have any regrets at all? Do you feel sad?
Well, honestly I do not have any regrets at all. I have four beautiful, loving and responsible kids. They are now all grown-ups and as a mother I am so fulfilled that I manage to put them all to school. A year from now my first daughter, Maria Ahtalia will soon finish her Dentistry course and become a successful Dental Surgeon or Orthodontist. My second daughter, Greta Garda will soon graduate in IT course 5 months from now to become a successful Digital Arts Designer. My third daughter, Tajah Jireh will soon to become a famous Fashion Designer, 3 years from now. And my son, Picardo Leo, who is now in Secondary Schoool wanted to become the most wanted Architect one day.
I sounded so positive! But that is most of mothers wished for their children, aren’t we all?
Sad? Yes, there is a little sadness in a way that my marriage for 12 years did not work to last. But ending it, is the best thing to do and very smart move and I never and I won’t ever regret it. I have the rest of my life now to look forward to and so I must make the most of it and feel thankful to my God in every moment as possible and ask His guidance and wisdom on how I take charge of my life and make a difference.
I believe that everytihnig happens for a reason. I have a full life and I take these life challenges in a positive outlook. I move on with my life. I keep adjusting to needs and keeping all vital areas of my life in balance. I will continue to passionately pursue my mission or goal and I will never ever quit.
Life goes on and a new chapter begins. :)
Last week November 30… My kids and I went to go house hunting. And we wished to get and own a Victorian kind of house in this beautiful Village and Resort Community to live by one day :)
This is what a Victorian House look like.
The house model isn’t ready for viewing yet so I just took this shot from one of their miniature displays…
In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother’s cub’s, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species, will take on the care of a different species. The only ‘orphans’ that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops?
Take a look…
Now, please tell me one more time…
Why can’t the rest of the world get along?
Dorado led his blind owner to safety from the 71st story of the North Tower on 9/11.

Lady the dog and her owner 81-year-old Nicholas went missing one day and a week later they were found. Nicholas had died of heart failure, but Lady had stayed by his side until they were found.
Navy seal Jon Tumilson died in Afghanastan. At the memorial service for him his Labrador retriever, Hawkeye, layed next to him the entire time.
This dog was the sole surviving member of a Japanese family. The dog still does not leave the gravesite of his owner, neighbors bring him food and water.
Every day at six o’clock this dog goes by himself to the grave of his owner and stays there all night. He’s been doing it since his death, 6 years ago.
