The rain season has definitely started. The city is a mess and the rain is non-stop. It is amazing.
It will be probably be going on until end of August, begin of September. Can you believe it? This is the Northeast Winter. The thunders and lights are getting stronger by the day and the temperatures inside the air-conditioning environments are really good (19º C / 65 ºF). The temperatures outside are another subject. It never gets lower than 24ºC / 75ºF. Well, life is getting better and better.
April is coming and the vacation time is arriving. We already decided our destination (Chile and Argentina).
I will keep you posted.
On a more serious note, my father was in the ICU for 24 hours (until Saturday afternoon). He is still in the hospital and the doctors are investigating what happened. It looked like a Heart Attack, but it wasn't. So, I have to wait what is going to happen. I will keep you posted in this one too.
I hope your weekend was great and the week will be fantastic.

Charme, simpatia e determinação.
São atributos que transformam a mulher,
Na musa eterna, rainha da sedução.
Carisma, beleza e sensualidade,
Se encontram e se completam nesse ser,
Que encanta, seduz e fascina
A cada dia, ocupando seu espaço,
Ultrapassando limites, preconceitos e preceitos!
Fazem a diferença na Família, na Empresa,
na Política e na Sociedade.
Fatalmente preenchem a vida de um homem com felicidade!

Today our friends, Manfred and Angelica, are going away to their annual season in Germany.
They are leaving happily with the wish to meet their first grandchild who will be born in October.
We had a wonderful summer together and this was far the best Holiday Season we had in the past years.
I wish I could go in a trip to see your beautiful Germany and your house in Dusseldorf. Maybe I will, we never know!!
Have a safe trip back to Europe.

I was born and raised as a catholic, so was my husband. My father used to go to the seminar to become a priest. Long story short, he left the seminar before he got himself expelled.
Even though, his decision brought him a lot of grief, especially because my grandma never forgave him. His faith was always strong and he passed that to us (my sister, my brother and I).
When I left my hometown and we went to US, we found this perfect church close to our house that we felt really welcomed. The name of the church was St Alphonsus of Dearborn. The priest was great and we had that family sense that we missed so much because we were really far away from home.
When we moved back to Brazil, we end-up in the city with the major number of Catholic churches in the country, but we never could find a church where we had the same feeling that we had at St Alphonsus. Go figure!!!
But I am telling you all of this, because ever since my grandma died, I've been missing the family bond that I shared with her.
Some people are saying that we need to start a family, especially because we've been married for 6 years now and we are always finding excuses to postpone this decision.
Because all of this decision making, have a baby or not, I've been researching the internet and I've been reading a lot of blog from SAHM (Stay at home moms). One thing that got my attention is the fact that there are blogrolls from Mormon Moms and Christian Moms, but you cannot find any thing related with the Catholic Church.
The strongest support group I found was the Mormons. I decided to read a little about them, because I didn't know anything about their religion. I have to admit how wonderful they are about the sense of family and all the principles they have.
I wish the Catholic Church could learn with them. The Catholic Church should learn about their values and especially how to promote these values along the Catholic Families.
