A Seat at my table…

During this physical distancing time, I have re-organized my closets, my dresser, the kitchen cabinets, my office desk, and the bookshelves. I have sorted in stacks of what I will keep, donate, and throw away. So it occurred to me, what in my relationships do I need to re-organize? How am I relating to the... Continue Reading →

What I know for sure…

You have my heart completely! Faith... This past week I underwent several medical tests. I’ll spare you the gory details, but it places things into perspective -that’s for sure! As I recovered and sat quietly in my bedroom. I took that the time to reflect on things I know to be true, and I wanted... Continue Reading →

Women can be….well… read on…

So, here I was feeling really good about myself.  Walking with a pep in my step and singing along with the radio in the car. I was HAPPY! It had been a summer of several health challenges, in which at this point, I was overcoming, and I had just completed my third semester of law... Continue Reading →

My words…have traveled​!

On May 8, 2017, I posted my very first blog.  Little did I know that those words would travel the world.  My intention for the blog is to inspire, educate, and entertain.  Have I achieved that these past two years, I would hope so?  I desire to always leave the reader with a new perspective....

When stillness leads to shock and awe…

Have you ever sat still enough to contemplate where life has brought you? What your decisions have taught you? How life is working out for you?  Have you considered the relationships in your life?  Have you sat still enough to think about the world, nation, and community around you? I try my very best to...

I needed it to be a cold blue…

I sat and cried. I thought I was okay, but I wasn’t.  The night before, I was taking my evening stroll and lectured my husband, that if anything should come back, that's questionable, I didn’t want anyone to overact. That if my tests were to prove something malignant, I wanted everyone to be strong. Yet,... Continue Reading →

Just keep polishing…

I have attended several weddings in the past months, and one ceremony had a poignant moment. They asked specific people to surround them.   They stood up, walked up to the couple, surrounded them, and prayed over them, blessing their marriage. These were their mentors.  Folks that will keep them accountable in marriage. Now that's a... Continue Reading →

Being Latina !!

I have always felt proud of being a Latina. Never once was I embarrassed by my heritage. Until... Growing up in the projects among low-income Hispanics, African Americans, Irish, and Jewish families we really didn’t see or feel different. We were one community. We celebrated our color, hair (well on some days), our food, our... Continue Reading →

You are challenged!

It was a challenge, but I did it… I unplugged from EVERYTHING for seven whole days! And by everything I mean, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress, Talk Radio (in my car) and TV! Yup, even TV. It was the most rewarding and freeing feeling I have experienced in a long time. Think about it. Twitter... Continue Reading →

Doors…​

I currently am walking through the long corridor of Menopause! I’ve found a couple of doors along the way I refuse to open and others that I couldn’t help but open, walk in, take a seat and stay for a while! In those rooms, I’ve learned lessons that have shaken me to the core and... Continue Reading →

“Silent Witness”

The year was 1966.  On April 3, a baby girl was born on the Lower East Side, the firstborn for Maria. One month later on May 29 of the same year, another baby girl was born in the Bronx, the youngest child of Lydia. These two baby girls had no idea their lives would cross... Continue Reading →

Just lay down!

Why do women struggle with self-care? Why do we think if we lay down, take a nap, close off the noise we are neglectful. Why do we think that if we tell our kids I need some time alone, we are bad moms? If we say to our friends I need some space, we are... Continue Reading →

Keep your bras on!!!

It was bound to happen! We are in a sexual revolution of a different kind. We went from being liberated,  demanding equal pay, burning our bras to saying ENOUGH, NO MORE! We will keep our bras on, demand equal pay and you MUST keep your hands off of me. I have very strong opinions on... Continue Reading →
