Live for today

When I met James and everyone saw how happy I was, quite a few people told me to live for today. To enjoy the moment because I never know what can happen. Sometimes I think they were just jealous of me, but something happened to let me see exactly what they were talking about. An associate of mine was engaged to be married I think this December 31st 2009, she was busy planning a wedding. Last Monday I got an email that said "Chris is dead" her boyfriend, soon to be husband is dead. He just bought a motorcycle and was out for a ride, had an accident and died.
Now I think I will enjoy each moment as if it was my last. Sometimes it takes someone Else's pain for us to see clearly.

Jacqui, you are in my prayers.

Be patience

Patience is hard for me because I always want to have things done now. I am learning that "patience is really a virtue". Sometimes we have to take baby steps to get to where we want to go, because with grown up steps, we just miss our stop.

Rainy Monday

It's Monday and it is raining. Nothing much exciting going on, my weekend was very restful.

Places I have visited

Niagra Falls, 7/07

I was born in Jamaica WI and when I migrated to the USA in 1979, there were lots of places in Jamaica I have never visited. I never took the time to see my counrty, or to visit the places marked as "tourist attractions" in my country.

I realize that I am doing the same thing here in the USA. Well, that is going to change. I will try to visit as many places as I can. Roosevelt Island is the first, a beautiful place right here in NY. I visited 7/12/08 with James. It is not at all like NYC with all the rushing in a hurry to go no where.

Tucked in

James is such a great person. Sometimes in the morning when he gets out the bed (he gets up at 4:30am) he tuck his pillow up beside me, I can smell him and feel the warmth of him still on the pillow. Sometime I get so cozy I over sleep and have to rush to get to work on time but I don't mind.

He did that this morning, but I did not over sleep.

Thursday 7/31/08

I am usually in no hurry to go home, but these last few weeks I cannot wait for 5:30 so I can leave the office to be home when James gets off work.
Today I am cooking dinner for him at his house for the first time, So I want to be home at little earlier than usual. He appreciates the smallest thing I do for him and this makes it easy, a lot of people take things for granted but not him. He compliments me on everything I do, he makes me want to be the best I can always, even when I don't feel up to it.
