MY TWO SISTERS: DANIELLE & ROSE

"The primary cause of unhappiness is not the situation, but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is." ~Eckhart Tolle
 I love the above quote because it helps put into perspective how I dealt with what happened to me as a little girl.   I left Haiti and moved to New York to live with my mom, two sisters and brother.   Being the youngest they took very good care of me.  Both sisters, Danielle and Rose helped me adjust to life in New York.  They basically spoiled me rotten.   It took me around six months to learn to speak English well. 
As I got older,  I learned to put away the bad memories and concentrate on the good ones.  Even though my life in Haiti was not ideal and my father abandoned us, I grew to appreciate the positives in my life. 
Meeting my half-sister Rachelle inspired me to write My Sister is My Best Friend, and growing up with my sisters Danielle and Rose helped shaped me into the person I am.   Thank you Danielle and Rose!



 MY FAVORITE PICTURE OF MY OLDEST SISTER DANIELLE



My sister Rose
This is a picture of Rose taken in Arizona.  I remember too well how sad I was when she  moved.  She relocated to Arizona to be with her husband, who was  serving in the Airforce.
