Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist.

Today's Photo Challenge is no other than my favorite artist Bob Marley. Every year on "Marley Day" which is the day of his birthday (Feb 6th) I make a post on his honor, well, this year he deserves two!

I do have to mention on today's post that besides that I love the rhythm of his songs, mainly the power in his lyrics is what makes him my number one...

I've been blessed twice in my life with the opportunity to see his house and the mecca for most of what he left behind in his life at the Bob Marley Museum on 56 Hope Road, Kingston Jamaica.... A must see place while visiting that lovely island and specially if you are a Marley fan.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Friday is here and it's a great way to celebrate the beginning of the weekend with a photo of something I love....

I have to say, there are many things that I love but on today's photo challenge I am giving that special honor to something I love and enjoy having in my life everyday.... Our awesomely fun, loyal, friendly and loving dogs...

Ditto & Sheba!
Without them my life would be very different; their love, companionship and loyalty fill our days with such happiness that they definitely deserve a mention on my blog today (and many more days!!!)....

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

on the 11th day...

To me "hate" is such a strong and heavy word that I only like to use it lightly. Dunno if this makes sense?

Basically what I mean is that I don't like to have or even just use to word "hate" when it comes to a living creature but only maybe in certain situations that make our lives more "challenging".

On today's photo challenge I am to post a picture of something I "hate"... well here are some examples of possible "hate scenarios" in my daily life...

Sitting in traffic, specially when you are on a hurry, could be pretty close to something I despite enough to call it "hate"....

Of course there are other things that "grind my gears";

- rude people that have no manners to even say a greeting, excuse me or even thanks.
- when you phone rings and you run to get it, only to make to the very last ring and once you pick up you already have missed the call.
- sleepless nights and when you finally get to fall sleep the alarm goes off in an hour or two.

I guess if I keep on thinking about more things that bother me, I could come up with more to add to my list, but in general I try to be a very positive person that focus on the bright side of things instead of those that could bother me to the point of having to use the word hate...

Also on another note, today is St. Patrick so here's to all things Irish!!! Have a extra lucky day!!!

about sports

Today's photo challenge is about posting a picture of your favorite sport or athlete. Well, I don't think I have a favorite athlete and when it comes to think about a favorite sports there are a few points of view to consider.

When I think of a favorite sport, is it one that I like to watch on tv or live? Or maybe is one that I like to participate on?

I've always liked football (aka soccer) but I've only played in high school and I sucked at it, still it's a sport I really enjoy watching on tv and specially when the World Cup comes every 4 years.

A few years back I learned how to surf and it's an awesome sport, one of the most amazing exercises ever and I believe I was in the best of shape ever when I used to practice it...

But then I've always enjoy watching ice skating and gymnastics, but I have never practice any of the two.

So, for this particular challenge I've decided to post a picture of a sport that I like and that I practice (well, at least used to, when my lower back wasn't in such bad shape), hope to practice more of it in the future... Scuba Diving!!!

Yes, that is me in the picture, taken by my boyfriend back then... now my amazing husband!!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!

I'll be there for you

Not sure where I first read or hear the following quote, but it sure does make sense to me and I find it very true.

"If you make friends with yourself, you will never be truly alone".

Today's photo challenge is to post a picture of the person who has gotten you through the most and that person could not be other than...


Of course I haven't done this all by myself.  First and most important is always been the help of no other than my creator, the one that is with me at all times and in all places, taking me by the hand to live this life as best as I can, God.

There's my family that has always giving me love, support, trust, education and values, they also gave me the faith and confidence to always strike to the best and be myself.

There's also somebody very important to that helps me get through the ups and downs in life, but in this case it's a mutual love and understanding that feeds our body and soul... My amazing husband, love u baby!!!

And last but not least I need to mention my friends, some have come and gone, others are still a big part of my life... specially my blog friends, thank you all for the daily comments or even for just taking a little time of your busy days to read what I have or want to say, you guys rock!

Have a great day!!!

7th day is Sunday

Well, I've reached my seventh day on the 100 days photo challenge, so far so good because I've not missed a single day, yeah!

Today's challenge is a picture of Me and somebody I be lost without, and that person is not other than my Mom Lorena.

Although my Mom Lorena is not really my birth mother (but my Aunt as she is my father's sister), giving birth to me is about the only thing that she has not done for me, so I would definitely be lost without her.

She is an amazing person, very wise and intuitive, realistic and intelligent, but specially a great Mother, wife, sister and friend to many people...

She knows me like the back of her hand, knows every single one of my moods and ways. Sometimes if I am sad and I call her, with a simple "hello" she knows that there's something going on with me...

But besides the many great attributes she's got, she is also an inspiration to me. Been that she went through breast cancer twice, I am very proud and happy to say that she is a survivor.

Cancer was a very hard and difficult test for her and all of our family members, but being the person that she is, going through it, proved me one more time, that God gives us certain obstacles in life to find more love and gospel in our lives and relationships, although it's never easy to see the blessings in disguise. My blessing out of this situation was to be able to be there for her with full support, love and trust, our bond became even stronger...

So, yes, for this and many more reasons I would be lost without her in my life and although we would all be called to be closer to God one day, I know that everything she is and everything she has teach me would always be a very big part of who I am, I love you Mami!

It's just like the following "adapted" quote....
"It's not the flesh and blood but the heart that makes us Mother and Daughter"

Have a great Sunday!!!
