On the NYC Train

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s November. Apple picking is done for the season. The elections came and went, and here we are. Amazing. I don’t want to sound like a broken record, like that girl whose podcast I always listened to, but then she said the same thing every time and would cry in every episode,Continue reading “On the NYC Train”

Choose Life

“We are impacted by the choices of the people who came before us; we are impacted by the choices our parents made, in fact, there’s some things about who you are that you are that because someone chose that for themselves, and they passed it on to you— and a lot of times, it’s theContinue reading “Choose Life”

An August Photo Diary

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello, friends. Here we are. At the end of another month. It has been one of a lot of growth for me, I feel.

Delilah #LoveSomeone

By: Gabriela Yareliz Delilah. She loves people’s stories, and so do I. Stories are my drug, and she is my enabler. It has always been like that.

Love Goes Deep

On the bright side, I barely missed a pigeon dropping, right in front of me, and the train pulled right into the station, when I walkedContinue reading “On Hold”

It has filled me with so much happiness for those friends; those I love so much. In theContinue reading “Per Dimenticare”

Watches

My life escalates, quickly. It’s bizarre. Who needs a movie script or book when you have real life? Haha. NOTHING beats real life. It leaves me mind-blown, every time. Is everything as it should be?  Providence plays little games, and God and the Universe He created have a fantastic and ironic sense of humor. OurContinue reading “Watches”

Reflections Before Bedtime #31

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s funny how we end up meeting the people we need. People who teach us, stretch us, challenge us and sometimes see us in a much more accurate way than we see ourselves. Maybe, it’s not funny…maybe, it’s serious; so serious, it’s sublime.

By: Gabriela Yareliz This month has been a whirlwind. A fulfillment of many things awaited. I can say that things did not happen the way I anticipated, but better; and not by my doing, but God in His infinite mercy orchestrates amazing things in our lives. I am so blessed. God has acted in myContinue reading “This Month’s Picks: April 2015”
