Going back to Jamaica

Well it's been two years and seven months since I was there last. It was a very sad time for me; I went to say goodbye and to lay to rest my beloved father.
Going back will be bitter sweet for me because daddy won't be there but since I am not really going home, I am going for a happy occasion (my sisters' wedding), I hope I will enjoy my visit.

This is my first sister and she always have a special place in my heart so when she asked me to be her matron of honor at her wedding I was honored.

We are sisters by father only and she has two other sisters out there, and because I am not good with their mother, I was surprised when she asked me.

So on August 27th I will be taking a trip back first the first time after daddy's passing, but since It is not about me, I am going to be the best big sister I can be and hope that her day will be one of happy memories for years to come.

Gifts that are ok to give back

I don't know if he was eating the ice cream or if it was eating him.

Grandchildren are precious gifts that you can spoil and it's ok to send them back.

On May 17th I had seven of my eight grandchildren with me for a BBQ and we had a good ole time.

They had hot dogs, bergers and chicken and afterward they all had ice cream. James saw to it that we all had enough.

Three went home that evening, three went home the next day and Darius and his mother stayed until the end of the week then they went home. I enjoyed having all of them and now they are all back home with moms and dads.

Places I visit

I often hear someone says "what you are looking for is right under your nose". Well I prove that to be so true a few weeks ago. James took me to Brooklyn, just for a drive and it was like being in another state. The streets with cobbler stone and the quietness of the area was different from what one would expect to find in Brooklyn, NY.
Then we went to a little park right on the waterfront, it was so peaceful, I have lived in NY for over 30 years and did not know that there are such beauty right under my nose.
From there we went to the promenade that overlooks all of downtown Manhattan/Brooklyn.
We saw the boats go by and the sunset was awesome.
Sorry I did not get a clearer picture on Manhattan at night.
