I wanted to post earlier but one thing lead to another and I kind of 'forgot'. These past weeks have been very difficult. My Boricua is out of work because of his doctor orders. It is so hard to see him in pain but the worst part is every single "no" we have experienced in the institutions that are supposed to help.
My Boricua is a combat veteran from The Gulf War. Over the past few years his health has declined, not to a death point but to a very unexpected way. We try to live one day a the time and enjoy life and beautiful things. I believe in God and I believe He does send "little gifts" when one least expect them.
It started yesterday with a conversation with my Dear Aunt The Teacher and my cousin. I enjoyed it so much. Most of all because we live far away from our families.
Today We went to the flea market we discovered a couple of weeks ago. I found some Pyrex. But the mos interesting thing was when this Lady told me if I wanted to buy anything She will give me a good deal and if I wanted to take a box full of "stuff" that was on the floor I was welcome. Well I did!! I took the box and when I came home I found most of the things were very nice. Here is some of the treasures....
A vase with red roses made in Japan. A very cute doll with a red plaid dress. A basket with red roses. A floral door stopper and a wreath withe red roses.
A very 'heavy' wreath with little red apples.
