How I Wear Holes in My Jeans - Lord, been a long time down here on my knees,  cleaning up mess after mess, made by people been blessed  so much more,  but someways just couldn’t care less. Still, I’m healthy, Lord, fed, and my family is fine; as blessings go, I’m happy for these. I’ll handle whatever mess comes my way, but I’m praying, Lord, down here on my knees.

BUTTERFLY BREATH - At church I was amazed at the beautiful purse the woman in front of us had.  It had a big orange and black butterfly design so real looking I kept glancing at it during mass feeling our old friend Beverly in heaven, whom I nicknamed Beverly Butterfly. She told me I would always be ok no matter what happens in life because of my faith. I believed her.  I still hear her voice telling me this from heaven . . . Butterfly breath. . .

THE LITTLE PRINCE - I fed him for three and a half years  God given sweet milk from deep within.  These days when he plays Fort Night  I like to feed him great Italian bread dipped in oil as he smiles  with his eyes as he did when he was a baby.   He is our son.  Forever.  Makes us whole and complete in this life and in the next .  He is a boy  a man  a soul  inspired by the light.  ‘You become responsible forever for what you have tamed.’ -  Antoine de Saint –Exupery, The Little Prince

DAY OF THE DEAD - “I hope the exit is joyful, and I hope never to return.” – Frida Kahlo Day of the Dead is one of the most well-known aspects of Mexican culture.

Let me start off by saying that such a parade was only created after the movie came out. And truthfully, I am not sure it is worth it despite the gorgeous media pictures. . .

It had a big orange and black butterfly design so real looking I kept glancing at it during mass feeling our old friend Beverly in heaven, whom I nicknamed Beverly Butterfly.
