Today I Buried My Mother | Latina On a Mission Today I Buried My Mother | Latina On a Mission

Today I buried my Mother. It was an emotional day. Memories of days gone by, full of bendiciones/blessings, countless hours baking, cooking, laughing in the kitchen, filled my head. I recalled the traditions handed down, the stories of her brothers and sister playing on the farm. Of a grandma who sat in a rocking chair, [...]

Providing Food and Hope Post-Sandy #MealsPerHour Thumbnail Providing Food and Hope Post-Sandy #MealsPerHour Thumbnail

While working with Toyota and Food Bank For New York City, as a sponsored Meals Per Hour Ambassador, I was given a bird’s eye view of Sandy’s destruction and its aftermath. It was as if we were viewing homes made of straw and they could not withstand the Big Bad Wolf. But, this was no [...]

Latina Blogger: 4 Years in the Making Thumbnail Latina Blogger: 4 Years in the Making Thumbnail

Yesterday was Latina On a Mission's 4th year blogoversary. It boggles my mind. When I began blogging, a Latina Blogger was a rarity.  Surprisingly, finding a Latina Blogger from New York, a state with a high concentration of Puerto Ricans and Dominicans, was even rarer in 2009.¹ Over the course of those four years, I've [...]

I've heard that everything comes in threes, good and bad. I can definitely attest to the fact that sickness comes in threes. Towards the end of 2012, [...]

Before the birth of my youngest son, I had two miscarriages and an abortion. That pregnancy haunts me to this day. My son, my precious child, would have been 12. During that pregnancy, I was placed on partial bed rest. I was high risk. My body had so much trouble holding onto my boys. Yet, this pregnancy lasted [...]

Laid Bare For The World To See Thumbnail Laid Bare For The World To See Thumbnail

It feels like so much time has passed since my last blog post. In reality, it's only been 2 weeks. Not much in real world time, but it's a lifetime in the blogging world.  I admit, I've tried to blog. I've sat and stared at my laptop almost everyday. Trying with everything in me, to write. Yet, each [...]

Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat! Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat! BREATHE. The past few weeks have been intense as a Lucille Roberts Ambassador. My body has done things it hasn't done in ages. Honestly, after my first training session with my Lucille Roberts' Trainer, I didn't think I would make it. I was bright red, gasping for [...]

Today as I sit in my living room, listening to the police vehicles and fire trucks outside my window, I reflect on 911 and how much my life has changed. Ten years ago, I was working at a boutique law firm in the compliance department. I researched laws, both nationally and internationally, while also montioring the [...]

My ten year old recently connected with a young girl from his Pre-K class.  She calls him constantly because she has a crush on him. He enjoys the attention and so picks up every single call. One day while talking to Andrew, she tells him she found another one of their Pre-K friends. She said he [...]
