ANOTHER blackout this week

Eight months after hurricane Maria, it seems like we can't go one full week without having a blackout. Sometimes it's just for a few hours and sometimes for a day or two and it just brings back unhealed wounds left over by hurricane Maria. We spent months without power, now after life seems to be … Continue reading ANOTHER blackout this week

Three years!!!!!!!!!!

As promised earlier today, I want to tell you about my sixth driving class, which took place this morning.  This class began from the moment the instructor picked me up as he let me take the wheel immediately.

One step at a time 

After over a month the boxes my aunts sent my parents to help life after Hurricane Maria finally arrived. My mom was so happy with all the food, batteries, flashlights and solar chargers for cellphones and computers.  Mail was already being delivered but when they still hadn’t received any packages I thought they had been … Continue reading One step at a time 

We are unstoppable 

So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable 

Praying for my Puerto Rico

With a broken heart I write to you tonight away from home, from my beloved Puerto Rico. My aunts bought me a ticket to the states and I really didn't feel anything from leaving, it just felt like another trip with my family. It does not feel that way anymore, I can't be more thankful … Continue reading Praying for my Puerto Rico

Because of María's intensity and traveling direction, through Puerto Rico, the government … Continue reading Stop that María
