I have not participated in this challenge for a hot minute. For this one, I actually had the time to snap some pictures during my break at work. We do not actually have seasons here in Barbados. Unless you would call eternal sun and thunderstorms seasons. It is that time of year when we break out the decor and indulge. Sometimes a bit too much. Here are some decorations that caught my eye and of course we must not forget my fave part of Christmas .. The rum cake 🙂 I hope you guys have a Wonderful Christmas season. Love and Blessings

A visit to Barbados would not be complete without some authentic Barbadian cuisine. From the ground provisions to the grilled fish and everything in between, we have something here for every palate. For all you foodies check out these spots for a satisfying belly full as us locals would say.

No one should ever be underestimated Inferior, unworthy, loser these words don’t define you Limits .. what limits? The smart ones know they are just self-imposed Take that dream, those wishes, that vision and nurture them until they grow Belief makes everything possible You are capable, spread your wings and just soar Let the cannots fuel your determination Prove them wrong, transform that dirt into gold Do it with passion, your own flair and write the greatest tale of an underdog triumph that was ever told.

Memories of the pitter patter of little feet A cocktail of laughter and tears, the breakups, the makeups Building a home is never an easy job It takes hard work married with creativity You want to keep your little ones safely tucked under your wings With a huge dose of faith and pangs of anxiety, you let them go Knowing one day they would grow up to do brave and marvelous things Your will was always tested but you refused to let them stray The baby bird now grown will always be a baby in her mother’s eyes You blink and in instant, your little ones have flown away It’s quiet now, maybe too quiet The proud mother hen smiles, knowing she did her best We can only pray to keep them protected, to raise them well and hopefully they will live a good life beyond the nest Written By Tachira Wiltshire
Thanksgiving is typically associated with expressing gratitude. I believe we do not need a season to be grateful. Life can sometimes be like a dark cloud hanging over our heads. Those days are not pleasant but are an absolute necessity in life.On gloomy days we can find some of our best inspiration.
Hard times teach us to be strong and to keep trying. We can be surrounded by the darkest of nights and somehow we manage to step forward into the unknown guided only by our faith. Be grateful for the moments that test you they will teach you patience.Your problems teach you how to be ingenious and cm up with solutions. There is nothing in life that you can not overcome. There is no yin without yang, no light without darkness. The next time you are going through a trying period; remember it won’t last forever and there is always something to be grateful for. You are doing your best and that really is all that matters.
Have a Wonderful day and remember to express gratitude to someone special in your life 🙂
What are you grateful for today? What have you learned from the tough times in your life?
