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 🙂

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 little girl…

My Tajah Jireh

Your name means Crown and Provider
God had blessed me again for providing you to me
For the third time I became a very proud mother
For having such a beautiful baby as you
We’ve share a lot of laughter—a spirit of laughter and joy

I wanted to see you on my own eyes
While you were being taken out from me
And gush, I was really in pain but with you
And with the help of God I became so strong
Happiness was within me when I first laid my eyes on you
And had you touched my bosom skin to skin for the very first time
Wow! You are my joy and the apple of my eye
We overcome all the obstacles and you shared with me the glory of triumph

I love you my child you are my crown and beauty…

For all people in love… Diana by Paul Anka


When I was little, I listened with my Mom 50′s and 60′s Album Collections…They were all downloaded in my brain even when I was just inside her womb, I believe this, haha, so that now when I hear this song –  ”I’m so young and you’re so old, this my darling I’ve been told, I don’t care just what they say, coz’ forever I will pray…Oh please stay by me Diana….” Oh, wow! This song would really make my day.  It uplifts my spirit too.  This song is like a lullaby to me.  I just love its lyrics and melody…

Christy Hengel, Is One of a Few Manufacturers of Concertinas in the U.S. Today. He Hand Crafts His Instrument Which Is Noted for Its Special Sound and Sells for $1,100…

Paul Anka, Tom Jones, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bee Gees, are top albums I listened to the most while growing up usually with my mom. She had collections of them. Although I am a jazz-kind-of-a-hip-hop music lover, I still enjoy listening  to them.  To me these albums are lovely, classical and immortal…

How about you guys, would you like to share us those top albums you listened too while growing up?
You can use the comment below and if you have any video responses, it would be very nice too.  Just post them below in the comment area.  Merci 🙂

And while you are doing that, you can brew your coffee and let’s drink it up hot and fresh… hmmm taste good as always!

Blue Heart

It’s Valentine’s Day
Color red is in and hot

Must everyone is ready
To have a sweetheart…

But in this VALENTINE
BLUE HEART is mine

Pulse rate is low
And no longer glow
Last drug failed to work on me
I fear it’s gonna be over
  • But then, you have stayed with me
  • Exposing little red left under
  • Truly you are a love giver
My Blue Heart now would soon recover

  • Happy Valentine’s Day,
My dear lover!

Happy Valentine's Sweetheart

To those with blue hearts this Valentine’s Day, cheer-up.  Things will soon patch-up… 🙂

Smiling Thoughts… On Valentne’s Day

Smiling Thoughts

When I met you I tasted life

Like a bud, I blossom, I breathe

Never again would I strife

For your love and care are so deep

Smiling thoughts of you conquered me

In the morn when I make my coffee,

When I eat, or laugh you’re with me,

And everywhere it’s you I see,

Along the road, those lovely trees,

At my work with my Apple breeze,

These words I’m writing now, I grace

Because you put smile on my face

You’re the best part of my everyday

And at night when I lay down to sleep

Still there you are all over me

Smiling thoughts of you lingers great!

Happy Valentine’s Day To  Everyone!

Remembering My Mom On Her Birthday Today…

My mom with my youngest sister and little brother and me in my favorite orange mini-dress 🙂


Every time I feel gloomy or hurt
I come to your side for comfort
You’re the mom I know since birth
The person who’d remain my mirth…

You’re the woman who knows me better
You’d understand my needs and want
That even though how knotty those were
You’d come to save me from any avalanche,
You wouldn’t mind this, nothing else matter
For you would want me safe from the errant

You’re always available for me
No matter how busy you may be
How you’d wish, all the answers you’d give
And all the things I seek in life, I’d receive

You’re not only a mom but a best friend
You’d honestly tell me all my mistakes
Because you wouldn’t stand me to rend
But you’d stay with me ’til my heart rakes

Yes there were times we would fight
Obviously with our generation gaps, it’s quite
But you’re cool you’d never doubt my insight
You’d let our conflict flow and bring them to a light

We wouldn’t always agree in any thing
And may have some misunderstanding
I would show you my tantrum, all of my whining,
My bad behavior and all of my misgiving
Yet you would never tolerate them by ignoring
Rather you’d choose to tame me with fair scolding
Sure, you’d get furious or peeve from my complaining
But still your heart would be quick in forgiving

You would always manage to calm down
You’d open your big heart and wide mind
And you’d accept the all of me to understand
To make me realize that my life had just begun
For you knew that everything you have done
Were for my wellness when time comes that you’re gone…

Everything that you have taught me
Ever since when I was little were all true
Today, that I am a Mom myself, I agree
For I have understood them all out through
Your love is unconditional and eternally…

My Mom Her Sweetness And Loveliness


When I feel happy and worry-free
As I always am
Still you are always around,
And here you would come…
We would share all the joys all year round
And no matter how far you are
Or near or just around,
You would make me feel your presence
You would reach out to me
You would make me feel the essence
Of your loving touch, so warm and profound
That I would hear my heart pound heavenly!

Oh, we would truly feel blessed and blissful
We would celebrate together and be fruitful…

And you would wish the whole world to know
That I’m your daughter, so proud to have me
And you are my mother, who’d support me grow
To be smart and strong…I really am so happy!
You never gave up on me, so I’d keep my glow,
Oh, my mother… My life I owe you… I thank thee…

I love you Mom…

My biological mother died from acute myocardial infarction 3 days before her birthday on January 27, 2002.  (1934-2002)
It hurts to talk about her because I miss her every day  and we usually celebrate our birthdays together because mine is February 2 🙂
I chose her to be

My February Muse

So I will be talking a bit of her in My Muse  page every now and then so just stick around 🙂 Merci!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
