Celebrating 17 wonderful years together!!!!

Today, it's been 17 years that John and I have been together. I wanted to create a slide show of all the wonderful memories from all these years. First, I couldn't think of a song. I can't believe we don't have a song. I mean, we have a bunch of songs that we love and have shared together but they don't really say anything about our relationship. Then, I couldn't find enough pictures. I have no idea what happened to our photos prior to digital cameras, lol. The slide show is not that great as I didn't know how to cut the song after the last photo. I suck at computer programs. I've been trying to learn to use Etsy, FB fan pages, blog, movie maker,...all at once. A little frustrating.

Anyway, here is the video. I love watching it. It does bring wonderful memories to me. John is the most wonderful guy. I know that nobody is perfect, but he is as close to perfect as anyone can get. And, I'm not just saying that because he cooks and clean. Of course, that helps :) but because he is the sweetest and most lovable one. He is the one that has always been there for me no matter what. He is my best friend and I love him deeply.

I wanted to add a little poem to the slide show but I didn't know how. So, here it is. I didn't write it myself but I think it says it all. I got it form Love Poems and Quotes (Love poem #28).

Will you ever?

I don't think you will
ever fully understand
how you've touched my life
and made me who I am.

I don't think you could ever know
just how truly special you are
that even on the darkest nights
you are my brightest star.

I don't think you will ever fully comprehend
how you've made my dreams come true
or how you've opened my heart
to love and the wonders it can do.

You've allowed me to experience
something very hard to find
unconditional love that exists
in my body, soul, and mind.

I don't think you could ever feel
all the love I have to give
and I'm sure you'll never realize
you've been my will to live.

You are an amazing person
and without you I don't know where I'd be.
Having you in my life
completes and fulfills every part of me.

It's all about Mokito!

For the longest time, I've been trying to blog about this guy. He seems to be neglected lately and I feel pretty guilty about it. Mokito, our bunny, is turning 5. He is the sweetest little thing and has given us many years of happiness. He used to be the king of the house until Speedy came to invade his space :)

Here is a little video of Mokis taking a bath. He loves doing that!

Isn't he the sweetest little thing? See how he used to play with Mr. Peach, our hamster. Mr. Peach died 3 yrs ago :(

Gaby and Mokis were always together. They would even read and watch TV together.

I love this pose! This used to be his favorite spot, under the dining table.During Christmas time, he always picked a spot under the tree.

Everything was great until speedy, the dog, came. Speedy just takes so much of our time and energy. Now, Mokis spends most of the time in his crate. Sometimes I put Speedy on his crate so Mokis can have a break and stretch a little around the kitchen area without Speedy chasing him. It's not like Speedy is going to eat him. He just wants to play but he is so strong that he might hurt him by accident.

Anyway, that's the story with these guys. We love them both very much!!!

R.I.P. Gilberto Zaldivar

This week has been totally crazy. I've been trying to stay away from the computer which probably explains why I haven't blogged. Lately, we've been bombarded with unpleasant news. They don't necessarily have anything to do with us still, they affect you one way or the other. They make you think and reflect about your own life, health, and future. I'm really trying not to let things get to me. It's really hard though.

On Tuesday, one of the Co-founder of the Theatre my husband works for, Gilberto Zaldivar, passed away. My husband had to fly to NY unexpectedly. The viewing(Celebration of his Life) is today at the Theatre.

That last time I saw him was when we were living in FL almost 6 years ago. He came down from NY to spend Christmas with his sister and he had invited us to dinner at his sister's house.
Here are some pictures from that night. He was always smiling or making jokes. I remember he was fascinated with Gaby and was trying to keep him entertained.

Gaby was playing the keyboard and delighting everyone with his concert.
