This sweet baby was just 7 weeks when I took her picture. She is now 5 years old. This was the only picture I was able to take with her looking into the camera. Her mama was behind her ducking down and holding her up while she was wobbling and looking around.
I love the purity of babies. That’s before they are affected by the craziness of the world. Beautiful she is and I hope she will always be reminded.

When my mom suffered a stroke at the age of 25 I was only 2. I honestly do not have any memories of her without it. One thing I say about my mom is she is resilient. Her stroke left her paralyzed on the left side of her body yet she still drove, cooked our family traditional Trinidadian food (not a quick process), ironed our clothes and walked very fast without her cane (especially when coming after us for something we did wrong). Seeing my moms determination really didn’t give me a choice but to develop the same character. She had no excuses and neither do I. I give thanks for my mom for showing me true strength.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Feminine Transitions excerpt.
“We share this complex planet called Earth with billions of people and it is a shame that sometimes we do not make time to meet our next door neighbor. Life is short, care for one another, love one another.” Regina, 50
“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty.”
If we all thought the way of the youth, the load we carry would be much lighter. Lighten up and love yourself up.
Oprah Winfrey is right in tune with the message of Feminine Transitions. Now to get her to see it… http://www.FeminineTransitions.com
“For sure we live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we’re not young and glowing and “hot,” we don’t matter. The entire television ratings/advertising system is set up to serve the 18-to-54 demographic. Which says to anyone outside that group: We don’t care about you. Yet this is a business predominantly run by executives all over 54.
I refuse to let a system, a culture, a distorted view of reality tell me I don’t matter. That only happens when we buy into the propaganda. People who lie about their age are denying the truth and contributing to a sickness pervading our society—the sickness of wanting to be what you’re not.
Denial leads to delusion.
I know for sure that only by owning who and what you are can you step into the fullness of life. Every year should teach you something valuable; whether you get the lesson is up to you. Every year brings you closer to expressing your whole and healed self.
I celebrate that. Honor it. Hold it in reverence. And I’m grateful for every age I’m blessed to become.” ~Oprah Winfrey
