En route to Taif – a city in the mecca province of Saudi Arabia, at an elevation of 1,879 m (6,165 ft) on the slopes of Sarawat mountain. A family of baboons were at the end of the curves, people enjoyed feeding them as well.
Hi mom! I have written a lot about you… today it would be different, I would like to share to you what my first son had written about me. Yes about his mom! (that’s me, with a capital M and a broad smile). For without you, I would not be receiving this kind words from him. You have made me what I am today. Thank you so much!
“After 7 years in college. After countless mistakes. Learning the hard way. After all that, all you had to say was “the past is gone and done with. You learned from it and it made you stronger. Now, go and chase your dreams”. Okay, maybe those weren’t your words but I think I got the gist of it. This was the day you took me to Hawaii. You helped me cross off the first of many places I want to go to before I die. And the same way you introduced me to drawing when I was a kid, this was also the same day you bought me my first camera. Thank you mom, for letting me learn the hard way and sticking with me through those days. Thank you for pushing me to keep chasing my dreams. I love you so much.”
Isn’t it wonderful mom? I owe you a lot of things, a lot of wisdom, a lot of beauty (in and out) but most of all, I owe you an infinite love that only mothers can give and this is pay back time… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!

My discoveries are endless…I will continue to learn… to share… to dream…and to inspire!
It is hard being alone in a foreign land where a woman’s voice is as rare as the rain pours. I was inspired to write my thoughts, what is happening around, the places I have been, the people I have met. I was inspired by other women who continues to fight, to dream and live happily in-spite of their difficulties.
Yes, out of boredom, i was inspired to start blogging but not to out pour my negativity but instead to inspire other women, to motivate them that there is beauty beyond fifty. I was inspired to learn how to take pictures from my sons who are both artistic on their own merit. I was inspired by the feedback i got from the readers.
I started my blog February 7, 2011, three months to go and a year will pass, I will continue to blog, a memories of my days, places,friends and my families and to my would be grandchildren and their children,to them…my memories,my thoughts, my life beyond fifty will always be remembered.
