Had A Great Fall

Today is thirteen years since I had a nasty fall - one that almost cost me my life. But I'm still here alive and well to tell the tale. For the first few minutes after it happened I thought I was dead but no my friends didn't let me. They were calling my name.

I'm really thankful to God for my family and friends who were there for me during that time. My dad told me I was slipping away and the funny thing is I didn't even know it. I didn't feel any different - all I knew was that the back of my head hurt real bad.

Yes it was sunken in for a few days and not I'm left with a small spot with no hair. But I'm thankful  because hair or no hair there my dear -  I'm still here.

A friend of mine ( who is like a brother) really kept me going when everyone else felt weary. When I felt weary and just wanted to sleep. I didn't know he could talk so much - he kept me up because I didn't know I was not supposed to fall asleep. When I felt discourage because of the discomfort and weariness he kept talking. When the tears were rolling down my cheeks he made me laugh.

Many people did not make it and do not make it after severe falls and head injuries in particular, but today I'm celebrating because I'm still here. Be blessed and count your blessings.

Knots & Gems

Knots and Gems is my next class at Beadfx in Toronto and this is happening on October 4 from 6 - 8. If you always wanted to learn traditional pearl knotting then this is the class for you. The technique is the same but instead of pearls, you'll have a choice of a variety of semi-precious stones. For more details click on the link below and make that call to reserve your spot.


Trinidad & Tobago festival at Queen's Park in Toronto

So I haven't been here since... Well it's all good - I had one of the best summers ever and  it happened right here in Canada.

One of the things that topped it off for me other than the sunshine was the many visitors we had from Trinidad and Tobago. It was a time for some good ole talk ( conversation) and company.

A few road trips, parties, movies, classes and goooooooooood food. I had the best summer ever!!!!!!

Don't Go Away!!

Please don't go. Don't you know I need you to stay? We have so many good memories together so why end it? But with the passage of time you are slowly slipping away and soon you'll be gone completely.

Your departure will break my heart so with that in mind please stay!! I love the freedom I experience when you're here and if I've taken you for granted please forgive me. I know some people want you to leave, some people despise you but I'm not one of them. Just think of the good times we had before you rush off - I'm begging you please stay.

But I know some things we have no control over and soon the summer will be just a memory ad time flies when you're having fun. So God please grant me the serenity...
