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, [...]

Help me. Stop me from crumbling. Thumbnail Help me. Stop me from crumbling. Thumbnail

Today I am writing a personal post in the hopes that it will clear my head and allow me to return to my love of blogging. Lately, it's become so hard for me to write. Words have become both a shield and a burden. I can't help but wonder, if I hold them close will [...]

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 [...]

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 been MIA, Missing In Action, and feel so disconnected. It seems like a whole month has passed me by. Thankfully, I am slowly getting back to "normal". 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, [...]

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 [...]

I Waited For You Thumbnail I Waited For You Thumbnail

She told me she had been waiting for years. And she was right. It had been 24 years since I had seen her, since I had left her home. She said I waited for you. I wanted to talk to you. To say, I am sorry and that I love you. I cried. I knew [...]

Its the first week of 2012 and I'm excited to get started on the right foot. Like many, I have made of list of goals/resolutions that I would like to accomplish. Actually, in honor of 2012, I have made 12! Some may seem redundant, some simple, and others so complex I'm not sure how I [...]
