12.30.15 Reflecting on 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣5️⃣

  

Looking back at 2015, the hardest lesson I’ve learned was to trust no one but God. I shed too many tears on people who didn’t care for my best interest, on people who I thought where my friends and betrayed me by spreading lies, on people who enjoyed twisting the truth and even on people who bullied me into thinking I was inferior to them. To avoid more heartache, I kept I myself and after many prayers, I learned to not need anyone but God. He is the only one who could answer my prayers. He is the only one who can change the mind of a person.

I have also learned that your inner family is everything. They are the grease to your engine. You need them as much as they need you. Our family runs on a schedule that works for us. We may not be perfect all the time, but we make the effort to better ourselves and to be the best parents we can be.

I have learned to listen more and talk less. I have learned to think before I speak. I have messed up friendships with the way I spoke and acted that now I think before I speak (sometimes I slip, but it’s a work in process).

Patience is a HUGE one!! Sometimes NO means not right now. It took me a while to understand this. A LONG WHILE….

10.20.15 Believe it!

everything-happens-for-a-reason

I can’t help but post about things that are out of our hands. For instance, I went to my local Dollar General store last week. The line to check out was 5+ long. I wait because I needed the cards in my hand, and the little pack of stickers Em kept bugging me to pay for. The person in front of me kept making small conversations with Em. While the line was crawling slowly, the woman in front of me kept thanking me for Em’s mannerisms, and for cheering up her day. She then said she was in line getting pasta because her father wanted it for his last meal. His last mean, I ask? She said he got sick over night and was told he was not going to make it. He was diagnosed with X, Y, and Z and the outcome wasn’t positive. When it was time for her to pay, her box of pasta was a dollar. She took out a $20 bill and I said to her, please let me pay for your pasta. I immediately took out a dollar and gave it tot he cashier. She was in tears, and thanked me again.

Today, I was in line at the store, getting some supplies to cook dinner and I had forgotten my wallet. After being in line for 10 mins, I realized it when it was already too late. I asked to go to the car to get it, and just as I was preparing myself to run to the car, the person behind me offered to pay for my groceries. It was only a $6 bill, but all I could think about was when I paid for the pasta, and that this was what God wanted. I paid it forward, and now someone was doing it to me. The anonymous person said he would do it over again and that $6 will not break his bank. I thanked him, and thanked God for always having my back. My grandma always has stated “Mamita, things always happen for a reason” and that we just have to believe everything will work out the way it was intended to. With that said, I leave you with this: Pay it forward, you never know when it’ll be your turn to get a helping hand.

5.22.15 Baker in the making 🎂

My little Emily loves to bake! Every chance we get to make daddy a cake, a  box of brownies or cookies, we do. I have also been teaching her all of the ingredients in English and in Spanish. She is getting better at repeating the Spanish ingredients. I love it when she wakes me up and askes to bake something for daddy! She runs to the kitchen pulls out a chair and expects me to start whipping something up to bake. These are the moments that I will look back upon when she becomes older. These are the stories I want her to read to show her with some dedication and constant practice anything is possible.  While I train minute to be a mini me, what are your little ones up to? 😜

4.20.15 Making IT happen!

make things happen

Good day!

Today I woke and thought “Who cares at what I think is good in life!” I have an unbreakable, committed faith with GOD and really, all I should be caring about is what HE thinks!

With that said, I am going to kick some serious booty at work today! I am going to come home and clean up, make a shopping list, and even try to attack some projects I’ve been holding off on.

Doesn’t it feel good to just let it out! I’m making things happen, are you?
