Two Girls Brought Together Forever
















'I would babysit the kids so that the parents could go out now and then; otherwise they felt they could not let anyone be responsible, until they met me! She, her brother and I had fun...'


Innocence born into a world of pink, unicorns, frilly dresses, hugs and laughter were two girls from different worlds...


Only love can, only love can give such a start...

A girl of twenty four exploring her western world at such a fast pace with college, teaching aerobics, night life of fun and dancing, and then starting a new career. Only she saw her life flashing so fast, but it seemed so much more than the life of poverty that was left behind. Struggling still existed, but a world of possibility lay ahead.

In this time she met a man who made her laugh, and gave her hope of finding the love she so wanted and felt was missing from her existence. The empty host soon was filled with new life and joys more precious than her wildest dreams. A life came, but was denied a long term contract, only to be replaced with a tears and sadness. The girl of twenty six soon realized that her heart had been replaced with a rhythm of response and control to change her fate that envisioned a soul full of more passion that would unfold, and another life of laughter and schemes...true meaning found its way into all their lives...


I was born, I was born to be with you...

Across the seas many years in Asian land love began to surrender to what they had always believed. Hands were sealed to love and commitment that would bring them back across oceans. American dreams brought about two lives, and a parallel in life and loves. When the numbers were counted by hours, days, or months, a life would forever change voices, and bring about broken dreams...

Only love, only love can leave such a mark...of black and blue...

Spring brought into it a life that was soon followed by the loss of the western life that was set free to become angel dreams, becoming pain words that felt as though they did not say anything. Soon peaceful life and chaos cries worked itself out and stood next to truth, going slow, but never made any heroes. A river of life swept two mothers onto shores of generation and brought to life a friendship that will forever be tied...

Only love, only love can be so magnificent...

The western woman who once twenty four now was much older. She saw pain the eyes of the younger Asian woman's shadow that only one who shared the same fate could the other hide. An opportunity to make an impact a love offering, and open wounds so that the younger of the two could see the hope. Throughout a few years the two towers stood tall together, sharing all things that even a death sting could not tear down...

Life like this can only be, only be such a joyful noise...

The heavens opened up and a beautiful angel came to bring another home. They run and play and talk about silly frilly and pink things. They are the two towers that stand tall together so that the ones left behind on earth forever will remain...















An eight and half and one year anniversary of loss, what love, friendship has brought makes an afternoon of tea, an eternity seem like only hours, weeks, months echos in a room as if it was only moments. The older woman realizes intuition, dreams of empty rooms, shadows, and a piano had been foretold...

In memory of Anelisa & Anjali, two beautiful girls and their mothers who will know that a lifetime of love and friendship can ease a pain so deep...

Many people who are close to me know that I took a position in a household over three years ago as a personal chef, and assistant to a local Indian family, because their daughter had CHD like my own daughter that has passed away many years before. I saw an opportunity to help a younger woman who lived in a world were these things just never happened, and were not so excepted. This little girl would take her hands and place them on my face and stare into my eyes as if my own daughter was speaking to me. Many thought I was nuts to take on such a responsiblity, but honestly how else do we learn, but through mistakes, heartaches, and the giving our ourselves.

Today I still am a big part of their life, and now shares a bond with me that no one else I have met will ever understand. Her son is a joy to watch grow up just like my own son, and I have hopes of talking her into having another baby, and we renegotiated my position in their household, and I know I have job security here...
