most welcome and fond wishes, lorenz.
credit my years of being born ahead of you, with all that those years entail-- falling and standing up, going through hell and back, and now there's the banana republic who understands why i have to cry over my sister and the kids and the dogs and cats but would never bat an eyelash if i lost a diamond ring. funny, neither would he bat an eyelash over that.
Such wonderful heart. A woman can, truly, endure so much, can consume so much love -- for family, friends, beloved -- and at the same time sacrifice almost everything. Resilience is admirable, it illustrates the human character, the potential we, all of us, have.
Thank you for your message, Tita. I believe all of us who have gone through heart aches, are going through, have gone through, can learn from your message.
