Here comes the sun....


Fourth year celebrating Peter's Birthday with both his kids on his lap, same table, same room!  Lets see just how many more years we have of the kids sitting on his lap....I say a lot more if they are anything like my sister and I with my father.  Happy 48th Birthday Peter

My Boy enjoying some huge bubbles at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana. One of his favorite places to visit. A visit long over due, this was a big giant treat to the kids being that we have all been living at St. Josephs hospital. Much more fun when Peter is with us he plays with them and discovers much better than I. In due time....

Performing center row "Peter-Ray" singing "It's a Beautiful Day" and a beautiful day it was.

My Beautiful Godson and Daughter were in the audience. It feels like yesterday when I was sitting in an auditorium watching Richard perform in school productions and he's now 26, time passes you bye so quickly....stop and smell the roses. To my Richard, I love you mucho you are truly one of my cherished treasures in life...


The real deal...Ballet Etudes of Huntington Beach.  Sophia and I attended a beautiful afternoon of Alice and Wonderland performed by these talented young girls and boys. We had a perfect day. From watching the show, to going through a few work-shops with Sophia, practicing tips and photo's with real Ballerinas...ending perfectly with Tea and Treats with a Mad Hatter, Alice and Friends.




Four and counting....In the mist of all that was going on in our home I managed to pull off a small Birthday luncheon celebrating Sophia's 4th Birthday. I made a wish on top of what ever she made. A wish of good health, happiness, kindness to others and to go after her dreams. May my daughter be guided by God and dream as big as she desires...


Precious Moments.... Looking back at these pictures of Grandma Norma still bring tears to my eyes. Her visit last month was thus far the highlight of my year. The talks, the food, the shopping the getting to know her were just as I some how knew they'd be. I honestly feel I owe all this to God for he has and continues to guide me in my life to being a better person. To my Mother in Law thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart, I love you too...Bendicion`

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth...


Where do I begin? The beginning as God did.  Five weeks ago Peter was rushed to the emergency paramedics stating he was having a massive heart attack. As they rushed him off a million things ran through my brain; why him, why now, guilt, sadness, lost, scared.  By the time the ambulance met me, me at the doors of St. Josephs (yes I beat them to the hospital--go figure) a Cardiologist was awaiting his arrival and quickly diagnosed him not having a heart attack but instead diagnosed him with Pericarditis. Pericarditis acts just as a heart attack, but isn't. In fact the heart is fine however, your sack around your heart (paricard) has inflammation and fluid surrounding your heart to make an EKG look as if one is having a heart attack. Speeding up five weeks later my husband is home finally. With lots of trial tests, meds, weeks and I mean weeks in the hospital and finally surgery he is home.


What I learned from all of this. I love my husband as is. He's like a good old tag sale item with no return.  The kind of item you really love but think in the back of you mind is it that good, is it necessary, can I live without it or will it just crowd my shelves.  My realization is I don't want to live without him, he's got lots of great qualities that in the course of time, parenting and life you put on the back shelf and forget they are there. The necessities of him being around me is LOVE a love that can't really be priced, weighed or measured.  He's a husband who's always and I mean always in the front of my shelf. And maybe at times I'd like him to sit back but I knew what I married six years ago and I too sometimes forget one of the qualities I fell in love with was how in front of you he was.  My husband isn't perfect and is for sure rough around the edges but guess what so am I. 


With the weeks that followed Peter's health I was able to multi task taking care of our home, our children, him via the hospital and most of all dig deep and figure me out.  I know I haven't figured everything but this I know for sure....


While Peter and I are on earth I want to be with him. And when it's our time to go to heaven I'd like to be with him there too!
