Easter season is finally upon us. While Most of my American friends or those who take part in the American culture, the Easter Bunny, painting Easter eggs and going on scavenger hunts with the little ones.  This Jamaican gal culture includes mouth watering, flavorful Spiced Bun and cheese.

The true reason for this religious Holiday is about Jesus dying love for us. He was crucified so that we may live our life to the fullest.

I remember growing up in Jamaica, Good Friday means going to church, no cooking on Good Friday.  We had to cook the night before and it would be fried fish.
Lots of Bun and cheese eating would take place. We also have our traditions and believes, like if we had to use the stove, wait until afternoon, since it is belief that using of fire add to the heat that Jesus felt on the cross.  Stores did not open until afternoon or not at all.  Fish fry on Thursday, Holy Thursday, no cooking on Friday.

Oh yes! We do have something with egg, superstition believes. Putting egg white in a glass of water use sticks to mark x over it and left out, this is usually done over night. Them when the sun rose on Good Friday, it was checked to see the shape of the egg to predict the future.  If it shape like a plane or a ship would mean future travel. Shape like a dress would mean future wedding is near. Coffin shape would mean death is coming.

Well time changed most of those traditions and believes are no longer in practice. The few that remains like going to Church, remembering the love that Jesus have for us, the eating of Easter Bun and Cheese and fried fish.  I can say this Jamaican Gal is happy and loving the Easter season.

What are some of your Easter tradition or culture? Would love to hear from you. Please comment, like and share.

Happy Good Friday!

Kids are way too funny

Follow me facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutube

So,  I completed another Children’s book.  I thought it was cute and funny with lots of rhymes.  Can’t way to start working on getting the illustrations for it, but it have to wait.  I have three books already in line waiting on illustrations.  Anyway I always read my books to Wes so I can get a child’s feedback.  Wes feedback was ” mommy why they all have to have old in their names” he said.  LOL…He is way too smart.  ” maybe I should change it to O instead of  Old” I said.  “Yes mommy cause that means that they are old” he said..lol.   I changed it of course .  It actually sounds better .   Thank you Wes!

Do you ever asked for  your children’s feedback on any of your projects that you are working on? What are some of their funniest feedbacks?  Would love to hear from you.   Please comment, like and share.

Dream,rise and grind!

Follow me facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutube

Dream,rise and grindWe all dream about something, whether your dream is to starting a family, starting a business, growing your business, going back to school, getting good grades in school, getting a job, getting promoted, getting a raise, or getting your dream house and dream car.  Whatever your dreams are, it’s your dreams and if you want your dreams to happen, it’s all up to you.  You have to make it happen, don’t  put your dreams in someone else’s hand and think, it’s their job to make it happen for you.   Make it your responsibility to make your own dreams happen.  Go after it, work hard for it, don’t give up no matter what.  Have faith that it will happen and it will.  Stay productive! Stay focus! Never stop dreaming! Never stop believing!

Are you working on your dreams? What are some of the obstacles you face while going after your dreams? Would love to hear from you.  Please comment, like and share.
