lindo, I miss my old life of cleaning ladies and more leisure time

to do only what I loved. Life is never that smooth, however.

 My sister's maid uses the 'plan de hormiga' in her house. She acts like an ant and carries small things away from my sister's house and into her house. So far, the things have been things that my sister would have given her, if asked....but, their talks about it have been fruitless.

My favorite husband drove me insane. I had to keep a bottle of either Imodium or Gelucil in my purse for taking big swigs into my mouth when he called on the phone or after a talk with him. Knives entered my stomach. Sometimes, I just took it every morning to make my tummy happier and to keep the pains away.

What sorrow, to have such pain accompany my love for him. To be medicated, to stay married. Eventually, he got the same agonizing pains in his stomach, cramping so much he needed injections of muscle relaxants in his stomach muscles just to make it through the rest of a day.

Or marriage counselor suggested that we part and remain friends before we both died. So very sad, but we did. We were both well almost immediately.

I live in Arizona because there are no earthquakes, no tornadoes, nothing really, but fierce wind storms and lightning.

Your calm in the face of earth shaking shows your strength.

This too shall pass.

I do hope the cleaning lady will return and the pain will leave - and soonest! And snow in Latakia? We have so much snow this year that I didn't think there was any left for other parts of the world, and certainly not the Middle East...But that too shall pass...as shall my toothache, that I am battling with Demerol and scotch, because tomorrow is a holiday and the dentist has gone skiing...

A very sweetly written piece, and I'm praying for your getting back to health with your usual high spiits very soon.

Yes, as I am reading it, i am trying to drive it home within me too:

It is a time I think for............
bad stomachs, and toil, but we will prevail. Never stop.
