Hi!  So, happy you stopped by. Stick around while I tell you a little bit about me and my journey.

I’m a daughter to Spanish parents and a sister, too! That means I love family, hugs, to share my 2 cents, music, dancing, flavorful foods, coffee and I can be a bit spicy at times.  I’m a wife, twice to the same man, in a thrice redeemed marriage.  I love deeply because I know no other way and it has filled my life with hope. I’m a believer of the impossible. I’m a mom of 5 beautiful and full of life blessings; but was only supposed to have one. You see, I had cancer; given 6 months to live when our first and daughter was 2.  They’re all a product of the impossible. I’m a homeschool mom who didn’t think she could teach: first, at all then; at different levels, different styles. I teach in what in my mind was the impossible. I’ve walked through many trials; some that have taken my life in many aspects, including literally. I have overcome the impossible.  I love to pull people together and encourage them to have fun in the moment when all feels impossible.  I’m a spiritual sister and friend. I love to give of my time and encourage others to see and live the impossible.  I’m a daughter of the King; a powerful Creator and Redeemer of the impossible – me – and I can be impossible!

I LOVE to…love people…encourage others…be a student of life and the impossible …homeschool…teaching the future generation to have a voice and believe in themselves…laugh at myself… journal my hopes and dreams and pray to make them a reality… journal my fears and seek to turn them into victories…eat chocolate…cook for many and watch them enjoy the food and fellowship…go against the grain because you never know what blessing there is waiting for you…flirt with my husband openly because I’m still in love after 22 years…squeeze our 5 blessings often because I’m grateful and amazed by them…say sorry often because I make mistakes, stress and well, I’m a mess at times…I run to clear my head and destress…and…I run to God because He’s my source of strength, hope, and love.

I’m not where I was and I’m not where I’m yet going to be; I’m under construction deeply desiring to enjoy the journey.

I know you have a unique and exciting one too, and I can’t wait to share, learn and grow along with you!

Your friend & sister,

    • Thank you, Sidney for your kind words. It has definitely been a journey and without God, I could not and would not be anything. I’m very grateful for all and continue to be. I am grateful for our friendship and your genuine kindness. Many blessings!
