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. Our…

La Sagrada Familia

By: Gabriela Yareliz Every day, I praise God for having these awesome people in my life. My family. Family is, by far, one of the most sacred gifts. This post seeks to celebrate the ones who see me at my worst and still love me (it’s no joke); the ones who pray for me; the…
