You asked me about my Fall Back Plan

I am so happy to have wonderful people to entrust my memories with, this is a great treasure. I LOVE you all.

For me this is a great gift to have a job that I like and I try to work with as much DILIGENCE as I can. When I fall into the routine there are always friends to take me out, shoulders to cry on and open skies to scream at. This is the GENEROSITY of life!

And yes I admit, I do fall back at being the best mom, the best wife, the best friend and the best colleague and I do HOPE and rely on their understanding and their open-mind that this is not something intentional, I might be just tired, upset or... really sad. Hormones, you know ;). Thank you my dear ones for your TOLERANCE with me.

The only thing is that I really try to identify when I was not as JUST as I should have been with ... you... and myself and I trust to find the necessary FORTITUDE to live the life with my mistakes in them and moreover to learn from it.

I have FAITH that I will always find a soul to share my doubts while drinking a cup of coffee, speak my thoughts when we walk through a park or dance whenever I do not need to think and just take out of my system my pains and my sorrows.

Thank you for letting me confide my fall back plan with YOU!

Thank you for sharing

Oleasea, it is as if you have reached into the souls of so many of us. That generosity of life is what keeps us grounded, those friends who accept you for who you are and know that they too fall sometimes. Those shoulders that carry the burden of your sorrows and pain, those skies that open their vastness up to you when you need to scream. Those knowing eyes that understand and show you that they hear you.

Feel free to fall back on your sisters here as we will sometimes fall back on you. For although we stand strong when speaking out for our communities, we sometimes feel weak and alone. Thank you for sharing your fall back plan with us.

The other day I was reading a story about a woman who was talking to her angel of Death, who came to take her. She was telling him that although she lived a pretty good life (she had a good family, good job, helped many people) she still regretted that she never had her talk of love with anyone, not a single person: hours when you tell the other person how much you love him or her it does not matter who and how and why. We are always in a rush to do what we are supposed to do and at her age she did not have anybody to share that talk with. And the Angel of Death had mercy on her and he told her that he found a person that wants the same thing. The Angel brought the two people together and they started to talk. They were in love and she feared and said " Honey, what if we fall asleep and the angel takes us" "Do not fear my darling", said the man "once we have opened our hearts to each other, we have the ETERNITY to share" :))))
