Did You Hit Delete?



Have you ever hit delete in error?

We always get a prompt – are you sure you want to delete? Or “Proceed to delete?”

“Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?”

You get a second chance. Will we be given a second chance before we are “Deleted?”

All this reflection started out when to my utmost horror and astonishment I discovered that the number of photographs in my “Album” on my Samsung phone had changed from 3,000 to 3!  WTH!

I took a deep breath and said, surely, there must be a mistake.” Quickly went through each album on my phone – and as my heart thumped, the tears came trickling out – oh dear! All the photos were gone!  Sad. So Sad. Very Sad.

There went pictures from my daughter’s wedding – I consoled myself with the fact there were professional ones from the photographer; and in a way, it was a blessing that I got rid of the clutter. 

As the day transpired, I began to think of other photos that were deleted, and my heart opened the gate to sorrow. Go away sorrow – go away please. Photos of the blackboard from the Ayurveda classes were gone!  Oh no! The worst was ALL the photos from the farmers markets were gone – all the potential blogs….no more. No more sexy looking okra and red as ruby raspberries – all poofed into space. My heart continued to plummet while feelings of despair continued to taste the air.
 
Lesson Learned – this was a wake-up call – just do what you have to right there and then – post the pictures of the veggies right there and then. Whatever you want to do in life, just do it or make plans to, there might not be a second chance or going back. Don’t procrastinate  - whether it be forgiving or hugging someone, calling a loved one or simply loving yourself and taking that trip to Bali ;) for no one knows what tomorrow holds or when it is our turn to be deleted.
 
 Before they hit
Delete
and you become
Obsolete,
Merrily accomplish your
Feat
and
Enjoy a life so Complete!

Have you found your true purpose here?  Are you living life to the fullest?
 
Wait no longer, my friend!
Cheers!

Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni

Attendees of the Healing Retreat for Caregivers at St. Emeric's Church in Manhattan today were truly blessed with powerful talks and healing by Father Halbing and the beautiful presence of Chad Gatchalian's Holy Statue of Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni.  Chad has got this Holy Statute all the way from India.  She joyfully shares Our Lady, also known as the "Lourdes of the East," with congregations at various places of worship throughout the country.

Apparitions of Our Lady of Vailankanni ("Virgin of Velai") first occurred in the 16th Century.  To read more about the interesting history, click here.  For more information on the Basilica for your next trip to India, please visit vailankannishrine.org

The New Kick in My Block

Did you know that this is the original Sriracha? Mrs. Chakkapak created it in her kitchen in Si Racha, Thailand, for her family and friends. See article from Bon Appetit by Andrea Nguyen.

I came across this chopstick-licking sauce, which is hot, yet slightly sweet, during my trek to the Thai Grocery Store. I prefer it to the sweet chili sauce with loads of pepper seeds. Sriraja has the right kick! What I especially appreciate is that it is free of preservatives and artificial coloring and has no msg!  Can't wait to dig in to my bowl of noodles!

Bon appétit!

Can Can Night

Do you struggle with preparing a meal at home on Friday evenings? My legs could barely carry me home tonight - I had done a lot of running around this week and running up and down the long subway escalators. I was kaput!

Did I forget my vitamins??

I ran out of my go-to-comfort food.  Brown rice tortillas and Daiya cheese are my butter and toast. Trader Joe's hasn't had any brown rice tortillas recently - all the snow storms we have been having - people have been grabbing them before I reach there!

After eating a few corn tortilla chips, dried coconut chips, I knew I had to make something substantial 'cause I wasn't going to survive on that or rice crackers and kimchi sauce!

Enter the can can dance! I kept eyeing the can of kidney beans while my mouth salivated. "Yes, I want that!" "Nah! Who's going to chop garlic, tomatoes, etc.?" I debated with myself - I'm too tired.

I gave in - made the kidney beans and have enough energy to write this …
