Jamaica - I long to be home

by Alicia Ashman-Ramsay
(FL, USA)

Hey,


First off...Wellesley, you do a great job!

Readers I tell you, I have such a longing for the day I pack my bags and return to Jamaica for good.

I visit at least 1-3 per year, but it's never enough. I never realized what a Gem we have in Jamaica until I moved to the US. I've been here going 9 years and still can't feel at home.

I wish we Jamaicans could all understand what a treasure we have...even before migrating, because then, we would appreciate Jamaica and each other more.

One Love my peeps...those of us who pray....Please pray that God will open the doors I need to walk through to go back to my first love.

Blessed love.....and Nuff PEACE!
Alicia

Wellesley's Note
Thank you Alicia. I really enjoy sharing my country with the world; just that I can't find enough time :-)

I also share you sentiments - no place like home.
I do hope that things work out for you so you can get back on 'the rock'.

Thanks again for your note.

P.S. Be like Alicia, share your Jamaican experience or interest with us.

Always feels like home
by: Vicki

I was born and raised in the states. My first visit to Jamaica was 11 years ago and I have returned at the least twice a year. Every time it is harder and harder to leave. The beauty of the island gives me so much peace, the country mountains and the 7 mile call to me as do the people, the real Jamaica...I love her!

I love you e-zine...keep the information coming!

One Love...Vicki
