I am a mother of three awesome sons. I work full time as a Teacher’s Assistant and I write children’s books. When I’m not cooking, cleaning, washing clothes and doing homework with the kids I actually find time to write. Oh wait, I forgot to mention, I love to bake.
There are times when I feel physically exhausted and want to stay in bed. My children’s smiles keep me going. The light that shines from their eyes, when we do something together, makes it all worth while.
Part of being a Mother is learning to balance them all out. That’s not to say that sometimes I don’t feel that I’m lacking in one aspect of my life in order to fulfill the needs of another aspect. Everyday, I do my best and that’s all anyone can really do.
I believe sharing my dream of becoming a Children’s book Author with my children brought us closer together. I firmly believe that as a Woman, a Mother, I owe it to myself and my children to pursue my dreams. What better way to show them that dreams are attainable. I believe that when someone follows their path they become a ray of light for all others who wish to follow their hearts.
We should all be “Rays of Sunshine” and learn to smile a lot more!

The reason I named my website “A Ray Of Sunshine”. I can’t say that my life hasn’t taken detours or even roadblocks but I am determined to find my way. I find it truly amazing that sometimes these roadblocks take us right back to the beginning. Where all our dreams first started, Childhood. As a child, I played teacher, I enjoyed baking and I loved reading and writing. Though time has passed, those things have not changed. They remain at the core of who I am.
Maybe I just lost sight of my inner being and started down a path of pleasing others. Maybe I just got caught up with motherhood that I didn’t realize the importance of my gifts. I love reading and writing. It brings me bliss, more importantly Peace. The same goes, for when I am baking, I lose myself in what I am doing and a natural glow radiates from within me. When I am in the classroom and I am reading or playing with a child I have a natural joy. That is because all these things come natural for me, I am not pretending, I truly love what I do.
Fear is an obstacle, we cannot afford. It makes us stagnate, keeps us blind to our true selves. Fear does not allow us to become who we were meant to be.
That’s not to say I’m not afraid. I am afraid every day. Afraid no one will like my stories, my cake will be a disaster, the students won’t welcome me in. I still get up and try, every day, with a new positive outlook. That with every day comes a new beginning, I am determined to stay positive in a world, a society that focuses way too much on negativity. I am determined to be a Ray of Sunshine where ever I go!
