      And for the last 3 days, we’ve been super lucky, rains and winds seem to have forgotten us.. The power of sun rays on our spirits is quite something, isn’t it?

        You are absolutely right there! Tropical weather has a charm, I find it encouraging when I see people doing their best to catch their own sunshine no matter how they’re feeling.Sending you some good vibes.

        It’s like a muscle, you have to train it. When I am a bit down, I am looking at the kids and I am like “Waou, those guys chose me as their mother”. I can’t think of any warmer and more beautiful feeling. But I know you can totally relate to what I am talking about 😉
        Thanks for good vibes, I take them all and sending many sun rays back at you
