Family Christmas Tree
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.
Enjoy Your Sunday!

A New Chapter Begins…
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…
Have a blessed Sunday Everyone! mmwahhh

Need And Greed
A boat docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village. A tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.
“Not very long.” they answered in unison.
“Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?”
The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.
“But what do you do with the rest of your time?”
“We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives.
In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs.
We have a full life.”
The tourist interrupted, “I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat.”
“And after that?”
“With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant.
You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even New York City !
From there you can direct your huge new enterprise.”
“How long would that take?”
“Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years.” replied the tourist.
“And after that?”
“Afterwards? Well my friend, that’s when it gets really interesting, ” answered the tourist, laughing. “When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!”
“Millions? Really? And after that?” asked the fishermen.
“After that you’ll be able to retire,
live in a tiny village near the coast,
sleep late, play with your children, (or grandchildren by that time), catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends.”
“With all due respect sir, but that’s exactly what we are doing now. So what’s the point wasting twenty-five years?” asked the Mexicans.
And the moral lesson of this story is:
Know where you’re going in life…
You may already be there…

Animals Know Better
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?

My son lost in the tournament but according to my good friend Mark Armstrong as quoted, “In a case like that, winning is not really important. Having the experience is what’s important, and I’m sure it will serve him well. Just qualifying and getting into the tournament is a great achievement– he can be very proud of that.”
And I am so proud of my son :)
Here is the video of the fight … Enjoy!
