There are 2 quotes that I love and they are: "The truth shall set you free" and "Actions speak louder than words"
Lisa and I went to cheer Joanna on since she was playing in the Model Beach Volleyball Tournament, which helps raise money to build wells in Africa. The dynamics between Lisa and Joanna and I are wonderful and every time we have a chance to get together we always have a great time. It's just three girls who support each other and don't feel no competition or jealousy. It's very refreshing to spend time with them, since most of the time we are just being our quirky selves laughing and not worrying about anything or anyone else.
We next see a very emotional Ana packing up her stuff to move out of her office. Any change is hard whether its professional or personal. The fear of the unknown is always scary, and I do feel very bad and sorry for Ana. She seems to still have feelings for him, and I'm not sure where the man she dates stands with all this. But to each his own. Her husband, or soon to be ex-husband appears to be ready to move on, and although Ana might not be, I pray that she moves forward and finally finds the happiness she deserves.
I loved seeing Joanna reunite with Romain at the beach and owning up to her mistakes and apologizing to Romain for her behavior with him. It takes a big woman to admit they were wrong and apologize for it. I respect her that much more for it.
Lea receives a phone call from the animal hospital letting her know that her dog Leroy is not going to make it. My eyes just filled with tears seeing her receive that phone call, because like many of us having lost a pet, we know the sense of emptiness and loss since they practically are a family member. My heart truly goes out to Lea. You see a little bit of me sharing some time with my parrots, Coco and Kiwi. They are so wonderful and have learned to sing many songs and speak many words. Of course he learned some bad words too, LOL.
Leroy's ceremony was touching and I know that Leroy is in a better place.
I really appreciate the small moments I have to share with my mom during my busy days. I must admit I am a bit of a neat freak, so I am one of those people that love seeing my refrigerator and having everything facing forward and organized, a bit OCD, yes, but hey, I admit my faults. Ha ha ha.
As I am spending some quality time with my mom, I receive a phone call from Alexia. I waited on the line for her to speak, because she just remained quiet once I answered. She then finally goes on to invite me over to her house, and to be honest, I was very hesitant due to her unwarranted attacks and childish behavior the last couple of times I have seen her in person. She goes on to tell me that "she doesn't want to be mean, because that is not her style." Wow, could've fooled me. . .
I am not a person to hold grudges and I guess I am a hopelessly optimistic person, so I decided to accept her invitation, but, nevertheless still very weary of her real intentions for having me over. I could only hope that they would finally allow me the respect to speak, the same way I have always given them their time to speak their mind. I guess I can hope for the best, but expect the worst.
Marysol goes on to say that she is upset with me because of the article that was written and what I had "supposedly said." Even though I have told them plenty of times that I didn't say any of those words describing the women, she refuses to believe what I am saying. She says "I am trashing the character of all of us and in public relations that is all you have." It seems to me that a true publicist would look for the truth and be sure of what she is talking about instead of coming to conclusions, and accusing someone without really knowing the facts. But, in reality, she wasn't interested in the truth, she was just part of the scheming group of mean girls saying anything just to try to make me look bad. Why so much hatred? Don't know, but hopefully they can find peace within themselves, because when they just lash out and try to bring others down, it's just insecurities on their part.
We need to teach people in this world to A) not jump on the "mean" bandwagon B) promote peace and C) stop the hate
God bless you all and please let me know your thoughts.
