The Kindness of Strangers

Been a long time since I'm here.
I confess I'm not much to share my personal life, usually this blog has always been used to disseminate my work, or other. but life is not always so predictable, like this post.

but if there is something I always thought was sharing.
this way and I need to share with so many good friends that I have known virtually, a bit of my life in recent months.

Time passed faster than I wanted or harder than I could ever imagine.

Cancer was diagnosed to my husband with several metastasis and prognosis of a very short life.

I confess that the world collapsed on me, I lost me, just wanted to believe that it was practically possible ... his recovery.

That did not happen, and a few months after me and my 5 year old son were just saying goodbye to the man  of your life.

My husband has always been my biggest fan and my biggest critic, companion and friend.

My world collapsed!

in these recent times the mixture of emotions, battles, try to be strong on the outside and be devastated inside, have been my recent days. Smile and play with my son and then hide me in the room to cry, so important, dear and irretrievable loss.
talking with family and friends and smiling, so that they too would not suffer and not worry too much with us.

Suddenly, a global energy came into my home, my spirit, my mind, my body.
An immense light appeared.
In this light I give the name of friendship, companionship, affection, ... but none of these words are strong enough to describe them.

The power of unconditional help exists, and all the people I met online during these times, did the most beautiful and unspeakable thing.
I have no words to describe it, my throat is tight and my tears fall stubbornly, but this time they are tears of gratitude.
Therefore I will make the link to the Blog of the WONDERFUL people who exist in this world.

Star of the East


You can see all the links on Estella's blog

I'll always be grateful to you guys, thanks for the strength that you guys are giving me.

 I went back to work, to create and I know that Duarte will always be with me and our son.

Thank you my friends for helping me to feel it so strongly.

What more can I say, other than a repetition?
Only my heart knows how big is  my gratitude, and you guys will always be in my heart.
Thank you!

But life does go on!And things always get better, they never get the same, but they do get better!Love
