Chapter III

How had this all happened?  She still was trying to understand how could she had gone from thinking that she was happy and that she had everything she needed, or wanted in life, to realizing she really had nothing of what she thought she had… She thought she had love… the love of the man she had been married to for more than 18 years… but she had found out he was really using her… She thought she had children who loved her… but they had been robbed from her… the three of them…a nd none had made an effort to come back to her… It had all taken place so suddenly that she was still trying to cope with the idea that her family was breaking up.  This idea was almost unbearable…she had given her soul and her spirit to try to make it work and just a few years before she had made up her mind that she would never leave her husband or her family.

She had not really shared this with anyone yet.  Only God knew what was going on, apart from her mother, who was present when all the events that had led to this situation unfolded.  Of course, hr husband and her children knew, but they were trying to cover the sun with one finger.   Everyone knows that you cannot cover the sun with one finger.  Even if you try to cover it, it will still shine…
