Dear bloggers and friends….once more life events bumping or meeting each other?

Day 23 rd of June, 2 weeks before the start of the Congress , my beloved mother died.

Although she was with a chronic illness she was ok…and suddenly she entered in profound sleep and left  this world…3 days after.

I was deeply sad….sad …i just wanted to stay at home with my kids, brothers and mourn. But I had my commitments, my work to present at the Congress. I had prepared with love and joy my presentations, I wished to even share with her my “power” points!!! well, I decided to go to Paris where no lights were bright enough for my heart.

WHAT REALLY MADE ME SURVIVE TO MY GRIEF WAS MY FRIENDS’ SUPPORT. THEIR LOVE FOR ME, THEIR CARING, THEIR ABRAÇO.nothing else.  Here are some of my presentations and the first slides
