A Difficult Task and an Award


Tony Anders from http://artisanofthehumanspirit.blogspot.com/ passed me an interesting award (thank you, Tony, I love the new "face" of your blog) , the "Honest Scrap" one. The catch is that you have to write ten things that few or no people know about you...The truth is I've been thinking about thi post since I received the award... I am the type of person that sometimes has a storm inside and nobody from the outside ever it.


So, it is like this:

1. People often think I am this curageous, outspoken woman but the truth is, inside I am just a scared little girl. And I don't think there are more than one or two people that know this...

2. I hate old people. To be more specific, I hate old men. My uncle abused me when I was only a little girl and until this day when I see an old man I just keep my distance...I remember that a few days ago in the post office an old man, the creepy type, sat near Maya and I just felt inside me a tidal wave of hate and nausea and I snatched my baby from her seat and hold her tight... She looked at me with her inquiring blue eyes , but said nothing, I think she felt the crazy rythm of my heart...

3. When I was a teenager, I dreamt of being a movie director...

4. Consequently, I lived in a world where actors and plays where the main thing so I fell in love with a young aspiring actor. Today he is an actor in Romania, I even saw him in a movie...

5. Being in love with the aforementioned guy, I stole his door mat. Don't ask me why, it was a dare that I had to do to prove that I loved him...

6. I dream of living on a small island ( I am serious, I would love to...)

7. I pray each night before going to bed. I have been praying like this since childhood. Here. I said it. This is something that nobody jnew...well, until now, that is...

8. I am convinced in one of my previous lives I lived in India. And in another one, here in Israel.

9. I would love to have lots of money, to help other people and to build a sanctuary for abandoned animals. This one is not such a big secret, but still...

10. I always wanted lots of kids. I used to have this dream: me, on a beach somewhere, together with four or five kids, playing and laughing...
The second part of this award/tag is to pick seven blogs to pass on the award to. Hmmm...I am passing on this award to:

1. Hevel Cohen from http://www.my3jewishboys.info/. Hevel is an old friend of mine and even though I don't know him personally, we share a special bond (or at least I hope so). Hevel is the "one of a kind" type of guy and I glad I know him.

2.The fantastic Sari from http://www.sarifarrell.com/. I've started reading her blog only some time ago, but I love and respect her for the way she lives her life...

3. Ottavia from http://www.idontlikemama.com/. A new friend of mine, I've met her through Facebook and I am glad I did...

4. Queenie the Bee from http://bumblebeejuice.blogspot.com/. Such a sweet blog, such a sweet lady!

5. Geanina from http://geaninalisandru.wordpress.com/. If you know Romanian, please visit her blog! She writes absolutely fantastic...her love poems always make my skin tingle...

6.Strawberry Ann from http://strawberryanns.blogspot.com/. Ann lives in Sweden and blogs about her family life. She is new at blogging but I really like her posts and she's oh, so creative!

7. Simcha, my fellow book lover from http://blog.42scifi-fantasy.com/, another good friend. And although Simcha blogs mainly about books, maybe it is time to read something more personal on her blog...
That's it...done it...

Now, a few updates: I am down with a bad case of flu, so we had to postpone Maya's EEG for next week (we had an appointment for tomorrow, but I am feeling so unwell I wouldn't make it). Poor Maya has cabin fever I am not a big help, I jus want to crawl into bed and sleep this flu off, instead I am playing with dolls and having a huge headache...

Mulţumesc din suflet, emoţiile au dat năvală cum nu-ţi închipui.
Sunt tot timpul cu gândul alături de tine, te vizitez permanent chiar dacă nu sunt prezentă de fiecare dată prin comentarii.

Te îmbrăţişez cu toată dragostea şi pupicii geaninoşi să ajungă şi pe năsucul cârn al minunii Maya.

Dear friend,

Thank you for your kind words.
Thank you for tagging me. and thank you for sharing things about you that open yourself up to vulnerability. It is not easy, I understand that. I sometimes wish we were a little closer after reading your blog - often I have wanted to just give you a hug.

So happy to have found you, your writings :)

Thank you again. I will pass this on.

Love, Sari

Oh no, you're not having an easy time of it are you? Is Maya still at home now during the day? I hope you have a community, there in Ashdod, with friends who are helping you out during your rough patch.
Thanks for the award! I'm honored, and I'll try to pass it on this week, along with a few others that I haven't passed on yet. Though I can't imagine that anyone is really interested in this information about me.

Hope you feel better soon and that all of Maya's testing will soon be over, with positive results.
