Gentle Giants

Ever had an encounter with a real giant? I have, and here's the video to prove it.

Swimming with Whale Sharks was one of the highlights of our trip to Mexico, we visited Holbox Island and took the tour, although we didn't see as many as I saw 7 yrs ago when I first visited the island, this second time saw lots of dolphins and jumping mantas, so it was worth the day.

If you are ever in the Yucatan Peninsula and it's between June to Sept. go and look for this wonderful gentle giants, it's an encounter like no other.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Moving on

The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

After 2 weeks of "fun in the sun", relaxing and not worrying about anything I was back to work on Monday but started feeling this horrible spasms on my lower back. The day went by and it just got worse to the point that I ended at the ER around 11pm, saw the doctor, did some test and just sent me home to rest for two days.

Yesterday and today I've been home trying to get rid of the pain, resting and hoping to go back to work soon...

Then yesterday we got some pretty bad news that the government of the Islands after more than 13 years of service from my husband, has decided not to renew his contract, so now it's off to look for a new opportunity which we need and soon.

So with this pain and the fact that I know my husband is going through a very difficult time I am having a hard time. I am praying to God that once again he shows us that he is in charge, He has always giving me so much that not once I have felt abandoned, I know this times are not the exception, so please if you are reading this add us to your daily prayers because every little bit helps.

 Happy Wednesday!

Like I mentioned on yesterday's post we visit the colonial city of Valladolid, here are some of the pictures of the lovely town.

This was probably my 3rd of 4th time in this lovely town, but I forgotten how beautiful the color houses are, I am glad I spent at least a day there.

Happy Tuesday!!!

Sitting in the park

When was the last time you sat at a park and just watched the world go by?

During our 2 weeks in Mexico we spent 1 day/1 night in the beautiful colonial town of Valladolid in Yucatan. In the afternoon of the day we got there (and after we visited some cenotes in the area), we sat in the park to just enjoy the afternoon and watch the town come alive.

It was a pretty busy afternoon there (and probably a very typical one), some people were on a hurry, either coming or going but definitely with their own agenda.

There were lots of people selling things and specially food, but others like us, just enjoying the afternoon while sitting place under the shade of some wonderful trees.

While I was there I couldn't help but thinking about how wonderful it is that there's still places in this world where people have time to just sit at the park, enjoy the beautiful afternoon and see the world go by.

Meanwhile there's people in this world that are constantly and always on the run without taking time to sit and just see the world go by... Maybe there's even people out there that have never ever sat at a park at all...

Well I am happy to think that I did it*, ( at least while on vacation), just sat on the park and watched the world go by without a single worry on my mind, but now it's back to work for me.

I am full of energy and hoping to dive right into what I do, sell lots of art and enjoy every minute of my day.

Have a wonderful week!

*Do try this at least once on your life, I highly recommend it
