T&TPrimeMinisterKamla&Susan-4.5.2011-M.JPG (42801 bytes)Dearest Online Family and Friends: How are you?  We are hopeful things in your life are moving along nicely; and you and your family are doing very well.   It's such a pleasure keeping in touch with you on a weekly basis, and we sincerely appreciate having this fantastic opportunity!  We thank you for always taking the time to read and correspond.  Your feedback is extremely helpful to us, and is so very welcomed.  (The picture to the left is of Susan Mangatal and the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Kamla Persad Bissessar - 4/5/2011.)

 

It's Time To Honor and Celebrate Our Mothers

The month of MAY has always been extra special to me; not because of the many beautiful flowers that are in its fullest bloom; nor that the trees are bursting with life, and the leaves are ohhh so green; not even that it’s the month of my birth.  But because IT IS THE MONTH that the most precious woman in my life [and that special woman or person in your life] IS RECOGNIZED, HONORED, AND CELEBRATED.  That special day called “Mother’s Day” falls in this wonderful month, and it is only 2 days away - May 8, 2011. 

This is the special time of year we memorialize and honor the women in our lives who lovingly nurtured and guided us; as well as made some great sacrifices for us.  That woman who has always been the pillar of strength; and the one who has ALWAYS been BY our side, and ON our side!  Yes, she patiently inspired in us the confidence we needed from day to day to overcome any challenge; and she instilled in us what is right and wrong.  Angel-1.jpg (4293 bytes)She taught us how to believe in our dreams, and gracefully made sure we strived toward our goals.  Indeed she is our confidant, our comforter, our encourager, our piece of mind, and overall OUR ANGEL! 

This woman we call “Mother” is truly our angel.  She is extremely wise, and the love she has for us is unconditional.  Her faith, as well as the strong love she has for us carries us through the winding path of our lives.  Oh Yes; she is that wonderful angel who brought us into this world, helped us grow, and along the way did everything for us to become who we are today.  THAT PRECIOUS AND PERFECT PERSON WE CALL "MOTHER" we must honor, celebrate and memorialize on Mother’s Day and Always! 

As you; (on a personal level) I think the world of my mother!  This woman is unbelievable!  Her strength is what amazes me and her faith…hum her faith has helped us through every challenge we as a family have faced growing up in Trinidad.  Oh Gosh, I remember how hard she worked to take care of us (her children); the many sleepless nights; the tears, and the prayers through the trials and tribulations.  But most of all I remember her always saying “God is Love…Suzie everything will be OK…we’ll be OK.”  Even though quite a bit of my adolescent years was spent without her by my side protecting and watching over me (she in Trinidad and me in the US;) I found we had gotten a lot closer, and our love have grown even stronger.  She is certainly my mentor, my angel, and my rock; and I love her dearly!  

As I write about my mom and think about her strength, a funny experience came to mind.  

You see, some months ago while laying my baby brother to rest.  My other younger sibling (brother) and I had jokingly warned my mother to NOT EMBARRASS us at the funeral – we stated: “Mom, you know how you are; please try to contain yourself at the funeral.  Try to contain your grief, and try to hold back the tears in public; and absolutely no bawling.  Just try not to embarrass us…OK…just try to be strong.”  She glanced at both of us and uttered the following word in her fine Caribbean style “hummm…!!!

LOL, would you know it; my brother and I were the ones who absolutely couldn’t contain our grief, and did all the embarrassing!  [Thank God  my husband Todd was our support, and during those crazy moments he was able to help Mom with holding things down.]  

As my Mother embraced us on that sad day, I remember quite vividly observing the strength she possesses; and it took my breath away.  I truly thought I was the strong daughter/sister; but this woman…our Mother was a pillar of strength, even in time of such unbearable grief.  As we got ready for bed that night, Mom couldn’t help but mention our warning to her, and the weakness we displayed in public.  We all had a good chuckle though (after being lectured about the warning.)

A year ago I wrote a poem for my mom "Marva" for “Mother’s Day,” which she loves dearly.  And as a tribute to her, as well as to my Mother-In-Law "Janice" and to all the Moms and grandmothers among our on-line family; I share this poem with you once again.  It is entitled: "I Honor You...I Adore You...I Love you"

 

I Honor You Dear Mother●  ●  ●I Adore You●  ●  ●I Love You!

You have performed extraordinary deeds, made various sacrifices, shed lots of tears, and worked extremely hard so that my life growing up was comfortable, as well as my brothers.  Your strength●  ●  ● oh your strength and tenacity is beyond belief, and is truly inspirational to me. 

Because of your prayers and faith Mother my walk through life’s long and treacherous road has been somewhat easy.  Even though you have been across the seas, your heart has always been here with me.  That special Mother’s love always kept me going and helped me strive to reach my goals as I made my journey through life.

I honor you●  ●  ●I adore you●  ●  ●I love you!

Mother your wisdom has guided me through and through.  Most recently during my time of despair, your understanding, encouraging and loving words soothe my mind, soul and body.  I took your words to heart and followed everything you laid out for me, and it indeed gave me unbelievable comfort, and most importantly, strength.

That special memories, love and bond we share I know will be everlasting.  Oftentimes, as I look into your eyes during our visits, the pain you experienced and we shared always comes to the forefront, and once we reach for each others hand and proceed to clutch them tightly together; without a doubt we are connected and are at peace.  Words are rarely spoken during these special times, but we both know we are there for each other.

Undeniably you are merciful, and you are my friend and my hero.  Your perfect love have calmed my fears, restored my losses and renewed my spirit.  With the utmost of integrity I respect you, cherish you, and truly admire you.

Indeed Mother, I honor you●  ●  ●I adore you●  ●  ●I love you! 

You have enriched my life immeasurably and you are my joy and my comfort.  Mother, because of you - the exceptional woman you are, I am who I am.   May you be richly blessed on this day and always!!!

I truly honor you dear Mother●  ●  ●I adore you, and I Love you dearly!  HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

On Sunday, May 8, 2011; please take the time to honor, celebrate, and express to your Mothers, Grandmothers, and even your Godmothers how much you love and appreciate them.  Take the time to sincerely thank God for these wonderful women.  And if for some reason you are not on speaking terms with your mother, consider deeply the fact that she is the one who gave you life; and try everything in your power to let go of whatever problem/s that might be keeping you from loving this woman and having a good relationship with her.  I’ve read, “honor brings God’s blessings;” so go ahead...honor your Mother, and surly you will see the blessings flow!  

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!

 



 

A Special Note

This week so much have transpired around the globe that was somewhat disturbing to many; yet it has brought satisfaction and closure to many lives.  In fact, history has been made once again!  However, as historical as it may be; I strongly feel it is unnecessary to discuss.  So therefore, I will move on to our friend Hollis Lashley's this weeks' Flashpoint. 

We do want to acknowledge that it was one year ago our friend Hollis Lashley joined our Arious family.  He has consistently contributed to our weekly E-Newsletter with his “FlashPoint,” and we sincerely appreciate all Mr. Lashley has been doing and continue to do.  We thank him immensely for sharing his talent with us.  Most importantly we thank him for sharing his uplifting words, and on many occasions his very thought provoking words.  We absolutely THANK Mr. Lashley for helping take Arious Entertainment to another level.

Check out his this week’s FlashPoint below.  See Mr. Lashley's note to you (our on-line family and friends), and proceed with reading his FlashPoint entitled: "Let Us Do More."

 

Hello Arious Family, ONE LOVE

Today, I am just filled with the Spirit of Freedom and light as I quote a true educator, and as I continue to enjoy the benefits of living in the evolving now.  Here are two gifts to the Arious Family.  

"It is now long ago that I resolved that I would permit no man, no matter what his colour might be, to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him."

Booker T. Washington, 1856-1915, Educator and Author

CLOSING REMARKS, REMINDERS, ETC.

A day ago we lost a treasured member of our family.  Todd's mother "Janice" lost her companion, and best friend; and we know life will be extremely different for her.  We share her loss deeply!  May she hold dear the joyous memories of Coco. 

One important reminder about this weekend is: the Carnival Bandleaders Association of Washington DC is gearing up for DC Carnival 2011.  They are hosting a fundraising and Mother's Day Event on Sunday, May 8th, at the "Panmasters Panyard", 4559 Rhode Island Avenue, Brentwood, Maryland from 4:00 pm.  There will be special treats for all mothers; lots of delicious food and drinks (on sale); great music and entertainment.  ALL ARE WELCOME, so go out and support the Carnival Bandleaders Association; and most importantly, enjoy yourself.

 


 

Whatever you do this weekend, please have a lovely one celebrating with your Mothers.  As I close I want to especially wish my Mom Marva and my Mother-In-Law Janice a Very Happy and blessed Mother's Day!

I would also like to send Mother's Day Greetings to my Aunt Bishop Myrtle Bristol  - Thank you Bishop for being a Mother to me during my early years growing up here in the states.  

Finally, to friends and associates, and the [following] few important folks I wish you all a lovely Mother's Day...Aunt Maureen in ATL, my adorable Sister-In-Law Linda in Trinidad; Ms. Gerri L.; Cousin Kym; Cousin Allison; and Cousin AnnMarie; Gail; Ms. Beverlee; Gwen; Brandy; Abasade; Joan; Denise; Michelle; Senait; Karen; Pamela; The Mothers in my family (The Joseph, The Harding, the Yallery).  My dear friends Lady D (Caribbean Radio Host) and Denise both from Orlando Florida Happy Birthday to Both of you and Happy Mother's Day.

As I close this week, I leave you with another beautiful poem commemorating our  "Mothers".  The author is unknown.  HAVE A WONDERFUL "MOTHER'S DAY".

 

MOTHER

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.


If I could give you sapphires
for each truth you've helped me see.


If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you've known


If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you've shown.


Then you'll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.


But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I'm sure you're well aware


So I'll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.
