Embracing My Senses!!!

This morning I awoke reminiscing of all the challenges I've conquered in my walk of life.  I thought of how blessed I am and how fortunate I am to be alive!  Life is too precious to waste on frivolous things.  I want to make my life count.  I want to embrace everything about my life.  I want to savor every moment of my life.  I want to embrace every moment with all my five senses, for which I am thankful are still in tact!

I want to hear the leaves fluttering outside my window as they dance in step with the howling waves of the wind. 

I want to see the glow of pure beauty in my daughters' eyes every morning as they come to me for a loving hug.

I want to touch and feel the soft skin still on my rosy cheek as I caress my face and explore the wrinkles of hardship, love and age taking possession of my ever changing body.

I want to smell the aroma of hazelnut cafe brewing downstairs as I stretch to wake.  I want to smell the baby soft skin of violet flowers on my 4 year old G-son's neck when I press my nose against it as he lovingly and gently hugs my head.  Yes, he hugs my head!  He softly embraces my cheeks in his two little hands and pulls me in gently, like the little gentleman he is, towards his neck as I wander blissfully in heaven. *inhale big breath of pure pleasure, then exhale big breath of pure love.

I want to taste the hint of cumin on a well cooked Pollo Enfricas√©, my favorite Cuban dish ever. (note to self: cook, take pics and post recipe to share)  Hmmm....genius idea!

Hola Readers!  Buenas Mananita!  Good lil' morning!  Hope everyone is having a sensational Sunday full of love and blessings where ever in the world you may find yourself today.
