The Rainbow over Roatan!

Blog, Miscellaneous

As I gaze at this picture I recall my spirit was overjoyed on that day. This was my view during the lockdown. And on this particular day the rainbow popped out of the blue sky. In my personal opinion it was a reminder that no matter the challenge, everything would be okay. Some might agree and disagree, but this helped me to stay focused being home alone. See I am a single parent and my son doesn’t live here. He lives in another country. So as families were caught under the same roof. I wasn’t. However, the island’s picturesque mornings and sunsets allowed me to focus on the positive instead of the negative. The area on the island I reside in, has all the natural beauty that Roatan offers. Early mornings I was surrounded by Guatusas (AKA Rodents), Iguanas, Birds, Butterfly’s, Bee’s and much more. I was able to sit and smell the roses, feed the animals that strolled onto my property, something I rarely did because I was never home due to work. This year I can say was an awakening. It made me put things into perspective and reach out to family that I hadn’t seen in a while.

I know others did the same. I am grateful that friends as well as family checked up on me. We were always in communication. That’s what Island Life and Island Living is all about. Staying in touch. It’s like living in a small town compared to a big city. Can it get annoying at times? Of course it can. Someone always knows someone, but the advantage is that if you are in distress people help. That’s what I wouldn’t trade for nothing in this world. I’m longing for the holidays to be reunited with my son. I guess covid taught us something. Nothing is as strong as family and friends. Hoping for a better year ahead.

Exploring Roatan in a water taxi!
