So Today……Guess What?

IT’S Our 21st Wedding Anniversary Today!

20200408_154922[1]

Thinking over the years, we have come to the realization that everyone is different and nothing will ever change that. People are always going to be Right and Wrong in the things they do or say as an active part of society. People will always feel Anger and Love towards others who they cross paths with in their lifetime. What has to be realized and done is that everyone take responsibility for who they are and own up to their differences and improve themselves accordingly.

Relationships whether individual, friendship, family, couples can always use improvement. I have come up with a post that will make people think twice as to how different people can be. Me and my husband are celebrating 21 years of marriage today and we’ve decided to write a list of the positive and negatives of what we admire and dislike about one another. We’ve exchanged our list with one another and talked about it and realized things about one another that we have overlooked over the years.

Being together for so long and the fights, battles and making a way back to one another has just made us stronger individuals for it. We are committed to working on our faults individually and spend the rest of our lives appreciating each other’s essence.

April 9, 1999 & April 9, 2020

We want to share with you guys our list because we think that it is important to make ourselves vulnerable to compliments as well as criticism. We are trying to grow in any way possible and we take it one day at a time.

This is Mine for Him….

I Love….

  1. He takes care of his children financially and emotionally.
  2. He makes me laugh and is very charming.
  3. He is a great cook.
  4. He is passionate about being successful and helping his family reach their goals.
  5. He gives me compliments about my looks without asking.
  6. He is very considerate and sweet to senior citizens to others.
  7. He is a lover of all animals.
  8. He is loyal and doesn’t hold grudges.

I Do Not Love…..

  1. When he complains about everything from dawn to dusk.
  2. When he is late for everything that is not important to his interest.
  3. When he ask advice about something and then says you’re wrong just to see what you’ll say.
  4. When he doesn’t have trust in anyone including his family.
  5. When he apologizes for behavior that he repeats over and over with no adjustment.
  6. When he is pessimistic about everything in life, nothing but failure before hope.
  7. When he redirects feelings or experiences one has back on himself to get attention.
  8. When he uses his age as an excuse to prove how much smarter he is.

This is His for Me…..

I Love…..

  1. She is organized and detail- oriented.
  2. She is smart, creative and intelligent.
  3. She is independent.
  4. She is funny and has a good sense of humor.
  5. She is giving and unselfish.
  6. She is not materialistic.
  7. She keeps up her physical appearance.
  8. She keeps the house clean.

I Do Not Love….

  1. She stays mad too long periods of time.
  2. She is too quick to levy punishment on kids.
  3. She is uncompromising when you move furniture or rooms to new planograms.
  4. She drives car brakes and accelerator heavy footed.
  5. She always put more stuff in shopping cart at store that wasn’t on list originally.
  6. She won’t commit to specifically scheduled intimacy dates and times but would rather be spontaneous.
  7. She watches too many shows with real life sadness, unhappiness, and despair.
  8. She doesn’t relish, reminisce, talk about things from our family’s 22 year timeline of fun times and vacations enough…the fun past memories are important to me.

Life is Precious…Live It!!

Last year, I wrote a post called Marriage and Relationships Are Like Owning a Business and it talked a lot about how every relationship has to be attentive to and like anything when one doesn’t pay attention to the books or communicate, it all goes haywire and it can end. See link below:

Marriage and Relationships-February 14, 2019

If I had any advice to give to people getting married or are looking for one thing to remember throughout their adventure together is:

“Prepare for the fight of your life. You will have blessings and challenges, look at one another and always remember the first time you fell in love”.

Okay so, that’s it!!

The Heart of a Dancer..A Queen Remembered

Good morning ladies and gentleman, as October comes to a close for the month, we remember those who have fought for their lives and are still fighting to this day to find a cure for a disease that comes in many forms. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our job is to be educated and aware of the early signs and stay united in the fight for the cure. Breast Cancer is not just a women’s disease but also a men’s disease.

I want to tell you a story about a daughter, mother, wife and accomplished dancer. Her name Sonia Vargas.

This is her story told by my dear friend Valerie Padilla, her daughter.

Sonia Vargas, 23 years ago never knew that simply taking a bathe would change her life forever. She worked as a secretary, was a dedicated mom, wife and she loved to dance. She taught her daughter Valerie, everything she knows about dancing, which I have witnessed first hand, from the Salsa, Tango, Fandango, Bolero and many more. Sonia was around 39 years old when she discovered a lump under her arm during a routine breast exam. Monthly exams of your breast are very important for early detection.

After discovering this lump, she immediately went to the doctor and had a mammogram done and they discovered a mass in the early stages. They were able to start her on chemo and began her fight. Sonia, a beautiful woman, lost all her hair and like most woman, the depression started and she felt she was no longer attractive. The family did everything they could to help her regain her confidence by buying her wigs and telling her she was beautiful everyday to keep her spirits up. Positive prayers and proper treatments made the cancer go away….so they thought.

One year later, the breast cancer that once was a distant memory, came back more aggresive. Sonia was given not alot of options accept for a masectomy. Women who are faced with the prospect of losing their breast, it is not an easy decision. We pride ourselves on how we look and in making this decision she decided to do nothing. Of course, the cancer decided to spread and it invaded so aggressively that it grew out of her body as a 3rd breast on her chest and became a part of her everyday life. She, like many women loved to look and smell good at all times and to have to live day by day with a growth on her chest, losing her hair and feeling sick all the time, it felt like she lost a big part of herself.

Her daughter Valerie, said that as her mom became sicker, she had to take care of her bathing and feeding her regularly. Valerie accounts that the growth smelled like rotten meat to everyone and people stared at her all the time. As the months went by, she became thin and frail and was admitted near Fathers Day of June 1998. The hospital she was admitted to was where she worked and she had the best care around her family and friends. When she was in the hospital, her doctor told her that it was so aggressive that chemo was not working and there was no cure.

She had to make another decision and she decided to keep it from her kids. Valerie was a teenager and being the oldest of 3 children, she felt helpless, pain and she wanted to do everything she could to take care of her mom. Her mom was her inspiration and hero growing up doing the dance group together and she just wanted to help her mom. After awhile, Sonia couldn’t speak but she could hear everyone. All her family, friends and co-workers did a prayer chain and sent flowers to lift her spirits.

October 24, 1998, Sonia Vargas got her wings at the age of 42 and left behind a spirit in her family that will last forever. It has been 21 years and Valerie celebrates life everyday for her.

Valerie and the women of her Empowerment Group just recently took a trip to Puerto Rico October 11, 2019 and we celebrated Valerie’s 43rd birthday!! Chapter 43 for Valerie was important to her and sharing her moms story touched all of us.

Her moms angelic looks, spirit, heart for dance, her love and caring for others and beautiful personality inside and out shines through her everyday.

Below is a chart of what to look for when you do your monthly breast exam. Early detention is the key.

I want to give a big thank you to Valerie Padilla for allowing me to share her mom’s story and to educate other women about the importance of early detection and treatments.

Things that can probably drive a person crazy but I try to hide about myself….let’s get started

  1. I grind my teeth all the time. I believe it is a nervous tick I have, as a result my jaw is always hurting.
  2. I like to sleep on my stomach because I don’t like looking at the ceiling. For some reason, the ceiling creeps me out.
  3. I like to keep the closet door closed because I think there is something living in my closet.
  4. I do not like my food cold at all. My meal has to be steaming and the cold stuff has to be the right temperature.
  5. I walk through my house in the dark and hate to turn on lights. I figure if there is a power outage, I am prepared.
  6. If I have a light on, it stays on and my family goes behind me and turns them off.

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning all about me…wait till next month when I dig just a little deeper!!

What makes me feel better and has never failed?

MUSIC

music-note-clip-art-21

I love the sound of music. I love all different genres. I am a fan of how music can soothe the soul. If I want to escape within myself it is my way to solitude. Music lowers my blood pressure, it balances my mood and it is very therapeutic for my disabilities and it also eases my anxiety.

That’s all I got!!

I love music…any kind of music!! The world has changed as far as music is concerned. Now, being old-fashioned, I will say that music has really gone south since the 80’s. Now all I hear all about sex, drugs, getting high, disrespecting women and men and shooting each other. I am so tired of it…I need it to go back to when music was about feeling good and being in love. I hear these songs that I just can’t figure out why or how they were able to be produced. Teens these days..this is all they know. All we can do is teach them right from wrong and hope they know the difference. Now that I have said that…let’s get down to my favorite songs of all time!!

  1. Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears

2. Whatever it Takes by Anita Baker

3. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is by Chicago

4. Another Brick in the Wall 2 by Pink Floyd (I love all 3 parts)

5. Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix

6. Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder

7. Soul Makossa by Manu Dibango

8. Heartbreaker by Justin Beiber

9. Reasons by Earth Wind and Fire

10. What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye

Enjoy all the videos…until tomorrow for Day 22
