Responsibilities and expectations of your Maid/Matron of Honor:

She should be supportive! I remember the day prior to getting married, I was all relaxed having my massage and facial.  Our bouquets arrived and …........I had a moment of panic. Despite meeting with the Florist months in advance and giving her a deposit with photos of exactly what was expected, she somehow managed to screw things up.  I had an early morning wedding and I didn’t know where I could find new bouquets on such short notice….. Fortunately, my…

Review – OJ’s Beach Bar & Restaurant

Prior to joining our family at OJ's, we placed our order by phone. I ordered seafood pasta. My first choice would have been lobster but, lobster season is close. My experience........ What went right: The pasta had lots of shrimp and fish. The portion size was good.  More than I could eat –  and this girl loves to eat! Prior to eating my pasta, I tasted the mussels my husband had for his appetizer and it was absolutely “delicious”.   It…

I Review for you!

I was going to start this off by saying “welcome to my first review” but in all honesty, I have done reviews on my instagram page for a few years now.  It just wasn’t something I took seriously and it was before “Sweet Island Mom”.  Yes I am one of those people  you see out eating who takes a photo of the food or drink prior to eating or drinking. For me, it reminds me of what I ate, so…

The Joy of Motherhood – my children

  Last year, at Mother's Day church service, I sat with anticipation as I awaited the sermon from Pastor Simon. I was disappointed to learn that there would be no sermon that day. His sermons are amazing!  Instead, pastor asked the mothers in the congregation "what motherhood meant to us."  It was a hot Sunday morning and as I sat there barefoot and pregnant,  I started to think about my answer but prayed he didn't ask me to stand and…

The Matriarch of the Family

  I am so thankful for this amazing woman.  She is the glue that holds us all together.  We are so blessed to have her totally involved in our lives. Childhood memories with my Grandmother As her eldest Grand-child, I was fortunate to have my grandmother all to myself the first four years of my life.  It was she who took me on my first trip to the big Apple – New York! I was 8 years old and I was so…

The Joy of Motherhood – Mom

  As a little girl, I remember how much I loved church picnics. We would meet at the church gate in Falmouth village at about 5 am and waited for everyone to assemble to go on the annual walk-a-ton to Morris bay. We carried bag packs with our picnic items, we wore our swimsuits underneath our clothing and I was always so eager to walk with my friends so that we could talk about the fun activities we had planned. Now…

Amen

Romans 8:31-39 God’s Love in Christ Jesus 31 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else? 33 Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is…
