    Thanks for that Big Papa! I'm feeling the stress of everything here this last week before we leave for AUA and that reminded me what I'm headed for in just six days. It'll make the week a little easier, thinking of it in that aspect. And, the last message about not crying because you're leaving but smiling because it happened, will be something I'll remember!

    For at least I minute I allowed myself to drift away, only to be brought back to reality by my buzzing phone. 20 weeks or so and counting!

    Your goal today....With a good book in your hands....Is to soak up gods gift of the glow....Cold drink near by...The steel band in the background whisks you away...To the happy times of life....all those worries of home are far behind.
    The smell of Coconut Oil is in the air..and as you drift off...a smile is all they see.



    All of you are with me now...In the spirit of the Island...Leave all the worries behind....If only for a little while.


    Don't cry because it's over.....Smile because it happened.
    You said it BigPapa !! It's funny because I call my Dad BigPapa too Aruba is almost here for my family & I. Im so excited ! You even made me feel like I was there if even for a moment
