Happy Mother’s Day OLTL Readers!!
A Mother’s love
A Mother’s love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.
- Helen Steiner Rice
May you all have a wonderful day!!
Hello OLTL Readers!!
After all the fun and touring of Mexico and Honduras, I was exhausted. I needed a little R&R… while on vacation. Imagine that! The hiking, sightseeing (mostly done on foot), swimming and even zip lining (in Mexico) was so much fun. I probably lost a few pounds, especially after eating the delicious cheesecake dessert I ordered from room service. There was not a dull moment in sight! But I needed to slow down a bit and just enjoy the remainder of the trip with my family and new friends.
Did I tell you I went to Hell and back?…. Really I did!!!
There is actually a village/town in Grand Cayman named Hell! It was named after the rock formations shown in the below photos. Now imagine getting a postcard from Hell mailed from their local post office!
As a part of the sightseeing tour, we also toured the Dolphin Discovery Park, where you able to swim with the dolphins and learn about their natural habitats. Dolphins and porpoises have been my favorite mammals since I can remember. I couldn’t miss this!
All good things must come to an end and now it is time to go back to the ship and sail home…
I hope you have enjoyed the photos from my first cruise. Thanks for stopping by!!
And now back to our regular scheduled programming….
This gallery contains 5 photos.
To New York with Love! -Onelifethislife
I finally made it to NYC! It was amazing. I have not traveled to the city in many years. The city was buzzing with noise and the same flare I remembered as a child and I was enamored by its beauty and charm… again. I remember eating the best hot dogs and pizza in New York. I think that is when I fell in love with sauerkraut and mustard and brick oven pizza. This trip was a bit different. I am now a Pescatarian but I still love brick oven pizza, mustard and sauerkraut… just not together.
This is probably the only photo I have posted to date that I have transformed the photo from its original state. I was just playing around with the photo editor and I ended up with an artsy feel. I really thought it turned out pretty cool and different from what I usually do. I hope you all really enjoy it!
