💕Por lo que el árbol tiene de florido…✨🌳


la vida comprendida
✨Si para recobrar lo recobrado
debí perder primero lo perdido,
si para conseguir lo conseguido
tuve que soportar lo soportado,

si para estar ahora enamorado
fue menester haber estado herido,
tengo por bien sufrido lo sufrido,
tengo por bien llorado lo llorado.

Porque después de todo he comprobado
que no se goza bien de lo gozado
sino después de haberlo padecido.

Porque después de todo he comprendido
por lo que el árbol tiene de florido
vive de lo que tiene sepultado.
Soneto de: Francisco Luis Bernárdez


Christmas will never be the same. ♥



This rose is
for my angel Mom
in heaven♥
I miss you every day…
another week goes by
I miss you every day…
it breaks my heart

I miss you every day…
 it brings tears to my eyes
I miss you every day…
I miss the way you used to smile
I miss you every day…
 and wish that you where here
I miss you every day
God has called you to hold you in his arms
I miss you every day
Christmas will never be the same
Love you and miss you more than this words could ever say.


I have you in my heart 💖



God has you in His keeping.

I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too,
I think of you in silence I often speak your name
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.

The last rose of summer…♥☻


Sept. 2015 cal.

“‘Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.”
– Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830

“Blessed be the Lord for the beauty of summer and spring,
for the air, the water,
the verdure,
and the song of birds.”   

–   Carl von Linnaeus

We love our cat (luna)❤️


Why not share with the world the way it is and tell them my feelings about my cat,
and how I played with my kids,
and how addicted to Christmas time I am,
and the smell of pine needles and hearing my kids laugh.

~Steven Tyler


I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
~Edgar Allan Poe

An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.

Father's day

To celebrate Father’s Day, I want to share a bit of my dad in his memory.

Dear Daddy,

I still remember your loving, sincere smile …
When the neighbors said their greetings, “Good morning, Don Efra (Efrain)”

I felt proud
Your memory remains in me. 🙂
In you I saw the sincerity, justice, goodness and love above all others.
you were a man of good heart.
With the strengths and weaknesses as a human being.
You were a noble man,
This was your legacy!

And I personally value this greatly.
Your calm temper and love to correct us.
You helped me with the multiplication tables, with art class,

and encouraged me to learn the flute

for my music class 🙂
Your good taste for music, such as the orchestra of Billy Vaughn,

and taste for photography; these two tastes that I inherited as well!
Thank God for giving me a daddy like you 🙂
I still remember when you said “Be yourself Mija”
Shared many laughs and tears, you gave me your shoulder when I was sad,

and you said, “Everything will be fine, mijita.”
I still have the newspaper letter you dedicated for me.
I remember when you said “by communicating, we understand people.” 🙂
The tongue-twisters you taught us 🙂 .. I could write a book about you!!
Papi we will remember you with love,

I miss you, but I know you are only ahead of us,

especially when God willing, we wil see you again.
Love, Janina .

Happy Father’s Day!

you are wonderful...


His blessings!


“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.”

“Besides this May
We know
There is Another—
How fair
Our Speculations of the Foreigner!

Some know Him whom We knew—
Sweet Wonder—
A Nature be
Where Saints, and our plain going Neighbor
Keep May!”
–  Emily Dickinson, Besides This May, #977, 1875



It’s Fine Today…


Spring ends and Summer begins on June 20, 21, 22  in the Northern Hemisphere.
Trees and shrubs are often at their freshest, and there are more flowers during June than at any other time. 


It’s Fine Today

Sure, this world is full of trouble-
I ain’t said it ain’t.
Lord, I’ve had enough and double
Reason for complaint;
Rain and storm have come to fret me,
Skies are often gray;
Thorns and brambles have beset me
On the road – but say,
Ain’t it fine today?

What’s the use of always weepin’,
Making trouble last?
What’s the use of always keepin’
Thinkin’ of the past?
Each must have his tribulation –
Water with his wine;
Life, it ain’t no celebration,
Trouble? – I’ve had mine –
But today is fine!

It’s today that I am livin’,
Not a month ago.
Havin’; losin’; takin’; givin’;
As time wills it so.
Yesterday a cloud of sorrow
Fell across the way,
It may rain again tomorrow,
It may rain – but say,
Ain’t it fine today?

Poet: By Douglas Malloch



Roses are red …♥



Live your life with love,
following the example of Christ,
who loved us and gave himself for us.
He was a sacrificial offering that smelled sweet to God.

Love each other like the members of your family.
Be the best at showing honor to each other.

Romans 12:10

Little children,
let’s not love with words or speech but with action and truth.

1 John 3:18

Love the LORD your God with all your heart,
all your being, and all your strength.

Deuteronomy 6:5

Because he hath set his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high,
because he hath known my name.

Psalm 91:14

How precious is thy lovingkindness,
O God! And the children of men take refuge under the shadow of thy wings.

Psalm 36:7

My dear friends,
we must love each other.
Love comes from God,
and when we love each other,
it shows that we have been given new life.
We are now God’s children, and we know him.

1 John 4:7

But if someone loves God,
then they are known by God.

1 Corinthians 8:3

God is love.
The most fundamental essence of God, the very being and person of God,
can be expressed as perfect, infinite, eternal love.
Anyone who believes in God should marvel and rejoice at this knowledge.
