There is a saying "When it rains, it pours." But, as I see the love and concern for my extended "Shine" family and their struggles I truly believe "When it rains it "Shines" on this site.
As I sat here reading the post "STITCH" wrote about the many loses some of my "Shine" family has encountered.lately, I really began to realize how much I have been touched by so many.
I'm not only writing about STITCH, IRISH and SERENITY.. I am writing about the many, many different people that have not only touched my heart.....but have touched the hearts of so many of our Shine family.
With the news of our "Lady Jane's" passing comes many memories of the love and support that she provided to many on our site. As we gather together in prayer, "Lady Jane" is one of the many kind family members we have had the pleasure of getting to know. May your love continue to "Shine" through the many hearts that you touched. God Bless You.
As friends became more like "family" through the tears of sadness and

So Many Yesterdays
So many yesterdays we all have had. But, yesterday is gone, with the good and the bad.
I cannot look back with regret and sorrow. For I have the gift of love and life to last me if I'm here tomorrow.
Tomorrow is promised to nobody in this life. So learn from yesterday, the lessons of joy and of strife.
Open your heart to receive the blessings that are there for you. Your blessings will help you make it through.
Cherish the good, endure the bad. But, never stop feeling, even when you feel

During different troubling situations in our lives, we sometimes feel overwhelmed. It is not always easy to feel positive when looking at our lives, but is a necessary step in our walk with our Lord. We need to lean on Him, when we are weak and weary.
Whether it be financial, personal or health issues we must look at the positive in our lives. We are not alone in our struggles, although it might seem that way.
I know in my heart that we all are a part of a much greater plan. A Divine plan that includes us if we are accepting of God's Will, not our will.
As I look to this day, I am grateful. Grateful to all the people that are in my life. Grateful that I am held up in prayer when I am weak.
We have no power to stop the clocks in our lives, whether it be good or bad. But, we can rest in God's promise that eventually all bad times will end.
This poem I am about to post is dedicated to IRISH our Queen of Shine, in her time of need. May God surround her with a hedge of
Written as a tribute to my Shine Angels, as a thank you to these special women in my life! My poem includes my brothers here on Shine also, because they are also part of our family.......Read More »from "Shining Angels"
It's not always easy to go through bad experiences in life. Whether it be the obstacles that have been put in our path, death of a loved one, loss of our health, or anything devastating, it is not always easy.
Sometimes we need to go through things in order to appreciate things. Many times we go through things to make us stronger in the end. At times the tragedies in our lives bring us closer to others. Sometimes we just don't know!!
As I've been thinking of the recent losses that some of my friends on Shine have gone through, I know that the only way I have been able to "Manage MY Life" is due to a group of very special people here on Shine.
I still struggle with different situations, but I can depend on the love, prayers, thoughts and wisdom from my "chosen family" here. Although miles may
Looking back on my experience on Shine, I can truly say I have been blessed. Blessed by some of the most caring, loving, sharing, talented, souls and hearts here.
I am truly grateful. Grateful to my sisters and brothers that have touched my life so deeply. I am in awe of the talents of stories, poetry, art, and so much more.Their hearts have touched me the most.
From my start on Shine, after an injury that left me wheelchair-bound, to the tedious, painful days at Physical Therapy, so many wrote to get an update on my progress, all the way to my "salsa party" when I no longer needed the wheelchair, because I was walking exercising, and yes, dancing.
Then there was Shine's first and only "cyber baby shower" for my grandson, who now has an enormous amount of love from all over. Without the love and concern of these gracious women, I would not have made it.
Of course, I cannot forget my visit from IRISH and Luther this past summer of 2010. That was the highlight of my summer. TheRead More »from So Many Yesterdays
Where do I start, what can I say,
To this man that helped me, on Father's Day.
You were there all the time,
You taught me REAL men do cry, it's no crime.
You were an example of a man so true,
My Daddy, I still miss you.
There are no words that can express how I feel,
To have had a father like you is so unreal.
Thank you Daddy, for what you did for me,
What is in my heart is the memory,
Of what a great man you were to me.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, DAD!
I love you!!
La Reyna! LOL

Friends Til the End......Read More »from Friends til the end.......by Super Abuelita
When we were young, we were friends,
Friends we said, til the very end.
When we were sad, and wanted to cry,
We never needed to ask each other why.
Our friendship always remained,
With love and care, not hurt or shame.
We would laugh until we cried,
We did not give up on life, we continued to try.
I felt your joy, and your pain,
Through good or bad, our friendship remained.
Our friendship just grew stronger,
We grew older, we were children no longer.
Through the laughter and tears,
We've been like sisters throughout the years.
As children we didn't know,
How much our friendship would grow.
We will still laugh, we will still cry,
Sometimes we'll know not why.
Our friendship still remains,
In our hearts, our blessings are contained.
Thank you my sister in the Lord, thank you my friend,
Our friendship will last, til the very end.
You know I hurt and feel your pain,
For your loved one,your husband, didn't remain.
Know I am still here, know
