Everyone knows that every day is Mother's Day, but as we approach May 9 which would have also been my oldest and late brother's birthday I made special plans involving both my MoM, Margarita, and Big Brother Tony.

During his high school football days, Tony was known as The Cuban Bullet. He was fast and dangerous for anyone on the opposing side who wasrunning with the football.

On earth day we take care of our planet, which is the only place we have to call home. Today I went to check out my body and soul.

We were reminded of the importance of meditation, exercise, and ❤️ LOVE.

  • Find a quiet place where you can be alone and undisturbed.

  • Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

  • Put your attention on the area of your heart.

  • Breathe easily until you feel relaxed and quiet inside.

Then I went to see my primary care physician Dr. B ...  

Too Far Away

LiV lives far away from me physically but never spiritually and is always in my heart. Just like all my family members, who I miss dearly.

I have felt the geographic distance caused as a result of my career between me and my family to live thousands of miles from my grandkids. I feel sad to live across the country from the grandkids and, therefore, see them less frequently.

As COVID has rapidly escalated, that distance between my grandkids and me might as well be another continent. For all practical purposes, I have become a long-distance grandparent.

❤️ LOVE 💗

Before we can love anyone else, we must first learn to love ourselves and try to be the best human being we can possibly be.

It happens to be the most powerful emotion. Love also occurs when you get that feeling from someone else. The butterflies in your stomach, knowing that someone else cares for you almost as much as you do.

One of the most common issues in relationships is the communication barrier. Everyone experiences love differently, and it’s easy to miss the mark when it comes to showing that you care.

Does anyone else miss hugs as we do? Will we be able to return to the age-old practice of shaking hands, hugging, and kissing?

I don't really know about you, but I do miss hugging my kids, friends, but most of all I miss hugging my children's children. See Sabrina and Olivia above!

For the first time in a long while everyone who lives under #USA Democracy may soon begin to enjoy a new post-COVID balanced life.

The last one always seemed to speak to his base, President Biden speaks to our entire nation. After years of living in fear of Russian influence, and behind an imaginary border wall, then following 12 months of isolation and after nearly six months of listening to the big liar, Americans may soon find a way to go out to visit families, friends, and neighbors without having to face a life-or-death decision.
