Changing the Past

   Perhaps you have thought about this question more than once: “ If you could change the past, what would you change”

My first reaction: -should I start in alphabetical order?

In reality, if we really could, for some unknown magical power should we?


 Life for many of us could have been a rocky path, with only a few smooth patches, and most of the time too painful to walk, questioning about fairness on each step…

 And there was a point when clarity started to come, when all those tears, got dried by the sun, and when all of the sudden, everything had a reason to be.

 Like looking at a farmers hands, seeing those dry lines. The hard work, timeless days, and in the end seeing at the harvest with beaming eyes full of pride.

 Those experiences made us who we are today, stronger, wiser, patient, and more to count.

 So go ahead walk tall and if you look back, be proud of what you are today.

 Life is short and the path is yours. If you always take the safest passage you may miss out on some of life's beauty.

It´s been almost two weeks since I went from Mom, to Hero.I want to believe that I am still keeping my rank.

It was a Thursday, when my daughters had their first swimming class and we were allowed to see them from the stands, the class was short and they were still in the last supervised lap when Maya my youngest daughter, slipped  off the pool stand and started sinking.... I did not have a lot of time to think.  My eyes were fixed on her body going deeper and deeper. It was probably two seconds and for me it felt more like 20 minutes.
I did not wait, I dove in and when I realized, I was inside the pool (It's amazing how heavy denim jeans feel when soaked) I grabbed Maya and got out of the water, and there I was water dripping from head to toe, all eyes on me and Maya well, needless to say: saved

It's incredible how fast things can happen, and more amazing how fast that motherly instinct can come out. Daniel my son, keep staring at me with his eyes as open as his mouth. I was not sure if he was embarrassed or shocked, when he whispered something that warmed my heart so fast that all that soakedness didn't matter any more.

"You are my Hero mom"  Well, that was worth a thousand more jumps in a thousand more pools.

Lost and Found

Sometimes life makes us lose things, and sometimes people, people we used to be close with, people that broke our heart, people that just passed by.
In recent months I have found some great lost friends that I never thought on finding again, I hope life keeps bringing this forgotten treasures and I promise never to lose them again.
