She is an amazing intelligent young lady …… who is talented beyond my wildest dreams , has the voice of an angel and has made me so proud…

A Mothers Love

A Mothers Love
A mothers love never dies

It cocoons and shields you while you are growing

It cushions you from all your bumps and bruises when you are falling

It smoothly wipes away your tears when you are crying

And hangs around and comforts you even when you think you are dying

It’s that cloak that you are wrapped in that offers invincibility

She’s the first one to make you think that anything is possible and that you can change the world

It’s the thing present for all major events or milestones in your life, whether it’s a graduation, birthday, or when you’ve choosen to take a husband or wife

Even if she’s not there physically, she’s still with you because she is in your heart and all around you

That feeling that you are special,

When you just know that you are loved

When you know your possibilities are endless

And just have that feeling deep inside that every thing is going to be alright

That all began with your mother’s love

So I say Thank you to all the mothers out there

But especially to my mom

Happy Mother’s Day

Hair Emergency!!!!!

Picture curtesy of face book 




I felt so sorry for this lady on the train tonight. Her hair was minimal to say the least. She was mostly bald. But yet her hair dresser found a way to glue in red weave for a bang and attach a burgundy ponytail tail to her head. Stressing the few strands that was left on her head. It brought tears to my eyes, wondering if she would ever stop. She seems to have a stressful life, may be that played a part in her hair loss.

Maybe she had lupus, it does not resemble hair loss related to cancer.  

Anyway regardless of the cause of her hair loss, it was apparent to me that given her choice of hair style, healthy hair is no where in her near future 

It brought tears to my eyes when I looked at her head


I mentally chastised myself, to ensure I didn’t take a picture. While honestly wishing I had th ability to take instant photos of what I was looking at if I choose to. 


I silently wished her well as she left the train 

While I reaffirmed that I will never put a perm in my hair again.

My journey on the Rapid K program 


I guess I should write about this diet /detox journey I have embarked upon 
I’ve been seeing people with bandaids at various locations behind their ears 

Upon inquiry, I was informed that it was for weight loss …. I was curious I must admit, so I set up an appointment for an orientation for more information 
On Tuesday night I attended the orientation, I was fascinated to find out that this program was not just for weight loss but a detox 
Yes !!! I wanted to be rid of the endless amount of toxins and hormones which I acquired and stored over my many years of life….

I was relishing the possibility that I may finally rid myself of them.

The program was explained to me.

 I knew it wouldn’t be easy , but I don’t eat meat so I knew I was ahead of the game.

The cost wa $150 for the initial visit which entailed getting two steel balls placed behind my ears, weigh in and measurements, and a packet with recipes and instructions on how to go about the process .

I did think the price was a little high, but if all I’d be eating was cabbage and milk it would balance out and the results were definitely worth it!!!!!
Day 1 and 2

Uncooked Cabbage, apples.watermelon, and carrots , were the only foods allowed 

64oz of water a must 

No food before 11 am or after 6 pm

By the second day this started to taste good 

Day 3 and 4 

24-28 ounces Organic whole milk only 

64 oz of water a must 

No food before 11 am or after 6 pm

I had the option of almond or coconut milk but I just stuck with the regular organic milk 
Oh! and the balls behind my ears must be rotated every two hours.

Today is Saturday and day 4 of the program 

I must admit I’m not hungry 

Find myself now really energized 

And I’m really looking forward to the veggie day tomorrow…lol

I thought I’d be staving and experiencing hypoglycemic symptoms 

Thankfully that is not the case , and I’m looking forward to what the rest of this program has to offer.

Anyway even though I find myself very busy, I’ll try to keep you posted on this amazing journey
