March 2019, a month of hope!


I wish I could say I closed my eyes and did not see where February disappeared.  Unfortunately, as short as it was, February was the longest and saddest month for my family and I.  We have lost my niece, who was battling sickle cell anemia.

We have cried and comforted each other.  Now, we are taking it one day at a time, and we are grateful for each other.

March 2019, a month of Hope!

As we are welcoming the month of March, I am hopeful that it will bring peace, new joy, and strength to strive any obstacle.

Through my difficulties, I remain consistent and try my best to keep that promise I made to myself to grow and live a more rewarded life.

I am still working on my 2019 goals.  I am still taking a minute to think before acting and I am still trying to save which is the biggest challenge for me.

I have joined a new Toastmaster club and I am ready to embark in a new adventure to improve my public speaking skills.

How did February treat you? What are you hoping for this month? Share with me.

Let’s welcome March with a smile and a heart filled with hope.


  1. I really hope that march will be a very productive month filled with new adventures! I’ve taken up a few new work projects and I will be very busy but hopefully I’ll manage to find some balance as well.

  2. I’m so sorry February was not a great month for you. My birthday is in February and we had a great day with the Cub Scouts at a hiking adventure. The weekend before all of the women in my family came to Texas for girls weekend which was much-needed. I hope March brings all the hope and joy you deserve!

    • I love girls weekend, my sisters-in-law and I usually take the weekend before mother’s day and we do a little weekend getaway. This year, we will not able to do it, both my daughter Youricka and niece Bianca are graduating from College, 1 day apart, and we will be traveling together to celebrate their achievements.

  3. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss and I’ll absolutely be keeping your family in my thoughts. February was not great for me either and I’m hoping that March will be better.

  4. I am so sorry for your devastating loss. I know that words are no comfort but please know you and your family are in my prayers.

  5. I am hoping that you have a much better March. It really is something tough to get over when a month doesn’t go the way that you planned. I am so sorry for the loss that you have suffered!

  6. I am super sorry for such a huge loss in your life. I hope for better things for you and try to stay positive – hard I know xxx

  7. I’m so sorry for your loss. When a young soul leaves this world, finding comfort seems impossible. I send you good vibes so that you can keep on with the resolutions you set for this year. xxx

  8. I am sorry for your loss and I hope the month of Mar will bring lots of happiness to you and to the rest of the world. Over here we are fighting with covid 19 virus, business is bad and many would loss job. I hope the situation will be better in Mar.

  9. Hi Marjiemare,
    Time is a healer and I hope the wonderful memories of your niece have brought comfort to you and your family in the 12 months since she passed.
    I love spring with the new life it brings. Here’s to a fantastic, March 2020 😎

    • Thank you, Pedro, with time, we learn to adjust and live with the pain. Springs always brings the hope of a new beginning. Hope you have a wonderful Spring ahead.

  10. Good luck with your public speaking. I am sure you will do fine. As for my February it was getting my feet on the ground again while at the same time confronting tragedy. So it’s been an up and down month for sure.

  11. My February was ok. March has become an unexpected sad month as a lot has happen with my family overseas. And with the coronavirus spreading here in Japan, I have no classes for one week till next week. I might not say goodbye to my students (as I am quitting the company I work at and moving to a new one).
