5 years ago this week I was a mess. Unemployed, broke, depressed. Now I’m a successful business woman. How did I get through it? Read this….
Even for people who are happy living alone, holidays can be difficult. There is a feeling that “everyone’s having a good time except for me.” Even watching a commercial of a happy family around the table can trigger depression—especially if being with family for the holidays is not an option.
Thank God It’s Friday and I worked all week! What an awesome feeling! I really feel like I’m being productive and that I’m an asset to this company.
I’m redesiging their website. I’ve set them up on LinkedIn, Twitter and with a blog on WordPress. I’m organizing a seminar in Jan. And once everything is set up, I’ll be helping with setting appointments for the advisors.
I had lunch this week with a former co-worker from Minico. She works on 46th St. and Broadway and I’m on 40th St. and Camelback. We met at the Big Apple on Van Buren – good BBQ.
I also discovered the Havana Cafe on 44th with as close as I can get to Puertorican food.
Yay! I’ll soon be able to afford to out once in a while!
I took a nice walk at lunchtime on Wed. down by the canal all the way to 32nd St. Unfortunately, I was wearing black pants and they got all dusty. I visited with the ducks and watched a flock of parrots in the trees.
I have an awesome view from our 4th floor offices. Check out these pix.
Have a great weekend and God Bless!

There but for the Grace of God go I.
That’s what I think when I watch the coverage of the devastation in Haiti. The same fault line that caused this 7.0 quake also runs under the island of Puerto Rico, one island to the east.
I felt several tremors when I lived there. It’s disconcerting to feel the floor below you sway. I can’t imagine what the Haitians went through. I see them as my former Caribbean neighbors (even if I never did get to visit that island). In Miami, I met many Haitian-Americans and my heart goes out to them as they wait to hear about their family and friends back in Haiti.
We take simple things for granted – running water, drinkable water, toilets, electricity, food, clean clothes, phones, a warm bed, a solid roof over our heads, a place to call home.
We should live in an attitude of gratitude. Be grateful for the little things starting with each new day when we wake up.
We are blessed and we need to let God know that we are grateful as often as possible.

Do not take anything for granted. We are blessed because God chooses to bless us.
Father God, I know that you are aware of the suffering in Haiti and I pray that any roadblocks that may be hindering help from getting to where it’s needed be torn down. I pray that doctors and medicine, food and water get there quickly and that good plans arise to start rebuilding. Let the people there feel your loving hands. I thank you Lord, for the organizations that were already there and the ones that are sending more help. Lord, I am so grateful for everything that I have. Please let me live in an attitude of gratitude. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
This was last Sunday’s message at church. This is tough sometimes, but we have to do it. In whatever is going on, find something to be grateful for. Find the positive. Kind of like a Pollyanna.
Be grateful you’re alive, relatively healthy, have a roof over your head, a car to drive, food to eat ( no matter how you get it) and that Jesus loves you no matter what you do or how you act. He forgives you. God loves you so much that he gave up His Son for you.
We can all find something to be thankful for all the time.
