PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Ready, Set, Write/He’s gone and taken my life.


<

div class=»text-justify»>

    When I arrived at the train station, he was already gone; my mind went blank and I felt that my breathing had stopped. It was as if my world had come to a standstill in an instant. The silence of the desolate station stunned me and an intense cold suddenly enveloped me; I don’t know how much time passed from that moment, I just know that when I reacted I felt the immense need to take a drink.

_It’s late, I was thinking to myself as I headed to the bar.

    I remembered her lips, her eyes, her hands caressing me. I asked the bartender for the strongest drink and I thought that with that I could stop feeling, that with that I could stop thinking. If only I had told him to stay. If only my pride had allowed me to speak. What can I do now? I sighed and saw out the window a couple of boyfriends laughing; for a moment I imagined their happy and blissful world, with no more problems than waiting for the train.

_There’s nothing to do, I’d better go home.

    The minutes passed slowly and my body didn’t want to respond. I left walking through the old street of the station while I watched the train arrive, I wanted to get on it and go look for it, but there was no more case, everything was already said between us.

    I got home and took the keys out of my bag, I didn’t want to go in, the loneliness wrapped me up tighter and I only wanted to cry until I died.

    As I entered I noticed something strange; suddenly a chill ran through my body. There was a pizza and two bottles of wine on the table. I couldn’t believe it, I ran quickly into the room and heard the shower; there he was.

    At that moment, mixed feelings were running through my mind, an incredible happiness that was generating a great peace. Not everything was lost, if I had returned it was because I wanted to solve things. I remained silent as I listened to the sound of water falling on her body.

_What do I do? What do I say?

    In that instant I shut my mind, just took off my clothes and gently walked into the shower as I ran my hand over her back. That night, there were no words, no words, just surrender, passion, love and sex.

    Well friends, I hope you liked my writing, it’s the first time I’ve done something like this, and I confess it wasn’t easy. They say the first time hurts. This PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Ready, Set, Write is made by my friend @zord from the community #powerhousecreative.

🍰 🎂 Mi segundo aniversario en esta maravillosa plataforma.🎈 🎉

Un año más en familia

    ***Estoy muy feliz, en este día hace dos años tomé la decisión de registrarme en Steemit gracias a mi amigo @ndnthor quien me animó para que fuera parte de esta maravillosa empresa. Nunca olvidaré sus palabras «Tu tienes talento para las manualidades y todas esas cosas que haces pueden ser recompensadas por muchas personas»***

    ***Primeramente quiero agradecer a Dios por todo lo que me da, es una gran bendición poder levantarme todos los días, respirar, ver a mis hijos y hacer todo por ellos, quiero también agradecerle a Dios por permitirme ser, sé que cometo errores, sé que no soy perfecta, pero él siempre perdona y con su infinito amor nos fortalece y nos guía entre sus brazos. A él le pido y le encomiendo por este nuevo año que inicia, le pido por que sea un año que este cargado de buenas iniciativas, que podamos seguir creciendo todos, siempre juntos, como una gran familia.***

***Amor por Steemit***

    ***Cuando escuchamos la palabra aniversario, pensamos en fiesta, alegría , baile, celebración, así me siento yo en este día, desde temprano compartí la noticia con mis hijos y mi esposo y me felicitaron, eso me sacó una gran sonrisa y me hace iniciar el día feliz.***

    ***En Steemit hemos tenido buenos y malos momentos, pareciera una relación de amor donde se sufre pero se goza. En otras oportunidades he confesado que no se si es obsesión o pasión, sea lo que sea es un sentimiento que me motiva todos los días a levantarme, a pensar cosas bonitas, a trabajar y en general me ayuda a tener la mente ocupada, sin entrar mucho en el tema de lo que esta pasando en mi país, creo que Steemit ha sido un buen sitio donde apoyarme y en vez de estar preocupada mejor estar ocupada.***

Upmewhale Writing Contest! Global Warming and Climate Change, What Can Be Done? «There is not PLANet B»


Margarita Island-Playa el Agua-Venezuela

Is there anything left to explore or to exploit?

    ***From school I have heard about those people who made great journeys and discovered entire continents; characters such as Christopher Columbus, Diego de Lozada, Magellan, among others, were very much named in my education and I think it was thanks to them that they had the temperance, intelligence or guts to go on those endless journeys that today we have a story to tell. History also tells us about other «explorers», like Engineer Neil Armstrong who was the first man to set foot on the lunar surface, on July 21, 1969, and uttered the famous phrase, «It’s a small step for a man, but a great leap for mankind.***

    ***I remember in my childhood sitting in front of the TV and watching Captain Jacques Cousteau’s show exploring the depths of the seas.***


    ***All these actions are nothing more than the desire for knowledge, for wanting to know what is beyond things. If it weren’t for all these discoveries, many would still think that the earth is square, or that the universe revolves only around you! Although today we know a lot, it’s never too much, it’s never enough, without going too far, recently I saw on TV the discovery of a new planet.***

***No blue, no green.***

    ***Many are the phrases that have become famous, said by illustrious people around the world, without blue there is no green I like it very much, ie «No ocean, no life. The ocean holds ninety-seven percent of the Earth’s water. The clouds rise from the sea and the water returns to the Earth in the form of rain, snow or hail. So this means that we must take care of our oceans more than ever; unfortunately not all of us understand this and believe that we will have a planet for all life. Today there is the God of money, great transnationals have amassed great wealth by destroying everything in their path. Tons of garbage, disposable plastics, excess fertilizers, chemicals and pesticides are changing the chemistry of the sea, mining operations continue to generate environmental problems, The new report on the Environment, prepared by the United Nations, warns of the disappearance of the Arctic ice cap, air pollution in cities and the extension of the desert in vast regions of the Earth.***

    ***A Planet with problems means we have problems. So what are we doing to help preserve it, what are our governments or world organizations doing?***

    ***Today with so much technology in our favor scientists can find out how much damage we are doing to the planet, that’s the bad news, but the best news of all is that that same technology can guide us to act in the best way and so we know what we must do to save it.*** [There is not planet B]( https://noplanetb.org/)

***To my kids about how we can contribute from home to take care of our only spaceship called earth, some of the things I always ask are:***

– ***Unplug appliances like microwaves, cell phone chargers or turn off the TV if you’re not watching.***

– ***We reuse everything we can, especially plastic.***

– ***If we go to the beach or a park we must pick up our garbage and leave everything clean as we found it; but if we also find something from bottles or plastic that someone inadvertently threw away, we have no trouble picking it up and putting it back in its place.***

– ***If you leave a space in the house we must turn off the light bulbs, fans or air conditioning.***

– ***Not wasting water is very important, if you are going to take a bath turn off the tap while you are soaping yourself or if you are washing the dishes soap as much as you can first and then rinse it.***

– ***Do not water the bushes, or wash the cars or the streets with a hose, with that you contribute to the waste of water that many people need.***

– ***Do not encourage hunting and selling of exotic animals, many of these species are in danger of extinction***

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmUGP7AmmH6tz4mbg3UGGQBpV9mPWFF8yKKYu98PE8kHHt/image.png)

***Sabanas del llano, Barinas-venezuela.***

    ***All this and more I have wanted to teach my children, I confess that in many they have collaborated with me and there are others that from time to time I must repeat them.***

    ***I’m very curious to know why things happen, I’m very attracted to the programs I see on television about many people who do want to help the planet, the struggle of conservation groups, foundations or organizations that fight against those who try to destroy everything.***

##

***»Climate change is real, it’s happening right now. It’s the most urgent threat our species has to face. We need to work together and stop procrastinating.» Leonardo DiCaprio.***

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmXkvkf7oia3TLnF5DMT4jCqSxQGbc3rCRacVQ65pjc4DB/image.png)

    ***We must all do something and do our part to be part of the solution. The time is now when there is still time and every single thing we do, no matter how insignificant, is of great value, believe it or not.***

    ***So it’s good to be aware of everything that’s happening to us today, if the governments that run the world today don’t want to be part of the solution, it’s unfortunate, because someday future generations will judge them for that and wonder why you didn’t do anything if you had all the power? Our existence depends on our actions, I invite you all to do your bit to have a green planet, the only planet with an ocean included.***

‘PowerHouseCreatives Contest’ «Steemit’s angels».

Hello friends, today I want to participate in the contest organized by @zord, he is a great member of the community #Powerhousecreative and is very interested in making activities not only to generate a monetary income, but also to awaken in us the curiosity about topics that make you think a little, here I found topics that have moved me inside, I remembered things that I never thought I would remember.

Today’s activity is about that respect, love, value that we give to our colleagues in the community of steemit, particularly I have found many friendly people, interesting, respectful and many with a great knowledge of how artistic is my great passion. Everything that has to do with the arts I like very much, painting, poetry, crafts, theater, creativity to the maximum, all that and more, I am passionate about it.

That’s why today I want to participate in the [PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Love Your Steemians](https://steemit.com/community/@zord189/powerhousecreativescontestloveyoursteemianscontestdetails-dh93ce138n), I want to show or make known a person that I admire and respect for a long time, her user is @Crosheille, maybe many people know her, she is always in everything.

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmNapinuM11uwJFcvzVBRjbKEW94Uu8h1NqrNDTR1SUkkA/image.png)

Since I met her I have learned a lot from her, starting I have seen that she is very organized and disciplined, not everybody can say that she has everything up to date, but she with her constancy and perseverance has taken her blog with a lot of style; her strong spn the crafts, she makes impressive things and although we speak different languages we understand each other through the needle and the thread. Everything she does fits perfectly, you can see the cleanliness in every detail and not all of us manage to achieve that; but not only her blog is about creativity, she also dedicates herself to guide and inspire others with motivating thoughts.

She is one of the main leaders of a community called #needleworkmonday and collaborator in another one called #steemitmamas, there you can always get her helping everybody, I wish and in steemit we could find more people like her, for me she is an example to follow.

#

***The task of the leader is to take people from where they are to where they haven’t been (Henry Kissinger)***

![separator andrades.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmP3KMat2zfwrdBRPDyEthyKRfUYoikriv2ckbQ3RP5avN/separador%20andrades.png)

One of his last posts is: [How my children learn](https://steemit.com/hive-120078/@crosheille/how-my-children-learn)

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmR3QKrxgqUcfbwCF1nWwGDvKcY62KZLxrdARwTQkbYbE6/image.png)

«Reestablishing an environment that encourages their learning and curiosity, allowing them to explore and get their hands dirty and letting them be free to be who they are is what we strive to do. We want them to be the best they can be»

![barras13.gif](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPqaNyGioNPjC3unSaeWDdMf4PzoM9rYCmiWmk5nQ7Ype/barras13.gif)

The second Steemit user I’d like to tell you a little about is: @Alarconr22.arte, he’s a great partner, an example to follow in many ways.

His last publication was:
[CATRINA MAGRITTE – Traditional illustration in the style of the surrealist painter Rene Magritte](_COPY18@alarconr22.arte/catrina-magritte-ilustracion-tradicional-al-estilo-del-pintor-surrealista-rene-magritte)

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQme2gakD94o5isKsQMgbMh9ffyanY6yeNZ1aiST2jz6aCa/image.png)

Alarcón is for me a consecrated artist, in the time that I have known him through several communities of discord he has demonstrated to be a sensitive human being, passionate in each thing that he does and undertakes. I have also known him a little bit in his father’s facet, he fought a lot to go to Mexico where he works and at the same time takes his career as a painter, after his first artistic exhibition last year he was able to take his family with him, he always told us that this was the only thing he needed to be calm and happy. For me those actions are what make me think that he is a good father, husband and friend.

He is always happy, we can find him in all the channels giving the good morning, good profit or a nice message of good afternoon, I believe that he has the gift to cheer up the spirit of the people just by talking. An activity without alarcon is not the same, you always need his jokes.

But do not think that everything is a joke, he has also been a teacher for me and for many people. Since I came to steemit I liked the way he guided us, corrected us and encouraged us to keep going. I am very grateful to him for all his support. Never change and God bless you, my friend!

I would like this contest to be repeated over and over again so that we can continue to name many people, angels that you have the joy of getting in your way. To all of them, thank you for existing.

My 2020: Just a normal day. «My family»

mi familia.png

My day to day revolves around my family


A happy and wonderful day for all participants and organizers of this wonderful contest. The truth is that I find it very interesting to take a minute of our time to do something that maybe we never do or if we do it is not in the conscious way, we mothers constantly complain about the day to day, how much we work and how badly we are rewarded or the lack of recognition from our family nucleus. Now that I have thought about it, a lot of things are going on in my head and I don’t know what to write or where to start.

![3a361-28.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWtvVJCCSseTG8NPaedUeGkAv8UKDkfTHn57kPEvAtDkE/3a361-28.png)

Not all mothers are the same and not all days are different, almost always the same thing happens, today I’m going to tell you a little about my daily routine.

I wake up at 5 in the morning and the first thing I do is thank my God for one more day of life, for my children and my husband. I go directly to the bathroom and I splash a lot of water on my face to wake up, you don’t know how difficult it is for me to have to leave my bed at that hour, I have always thought that those minutes when you wake up and you don’t want to stop are the warmest minutes of the whole night.

I have a good habit of drinking two glasses of water as soon as I get up and if possible before brushing, if you don’t have it as practice I recommend it.

Then I make the coffee, I’m a coffee addict, at home a full pot is strained and the thermos is filled to be drinking every time I want or if I have a visit to have right away to give him to drink.

![3a361-28.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWtvVJCCSseTG8NPaedUeGkAv8UKDkfTHn57kPEvAtDkE/3a361-28.png)

I like to make breakfast and lunch at the same time, I like my children and my husband to eat fresh food, made from the same day. I think there are foods that are more flavorful if they haven’t been refrigerated for a long time.

While I am cooking, turning on the TV and turning on the news channel to find out about the daily happenings, here in Venezuela things are constantly happening, especially the political happenings.

After everyone gets up, has breakfast and goes to their respective daily activities, I dedicate myself to fixing up the kitchen and leaving all the spaces arranged so that my house looks nice and tidy.

https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmetseUrxwXFTDwEp9x2BYcMxnGZckEoFrs1LM1F3DEYQQ/image.png

## ***My favorite spot.***

It’s time for me to take a bath and eat a nice breakfast to start the day full of good energy. I turn on my computer and check the discord, my friend Gina tells me the latest events on my account, I am excited to read the comments and respond if possible. This last point is difficult for me sometimes because the internet and the light fail a lot in my country, so if I have both things the first thing I do is to publish my daily post.

#

***At mid-morning***

At mid-morning I’m finishing up with the computer and heading to the sewing shop. In this workshop is where the magic of all my crafts happens, here is where the ribbons, fabrics, threads, needles are interwoven and beautiful works are produced that cause happiness to many people.

Many already know about my work and know that I like to knit, embroider, machine sew and recycle things. When I have an order from my clients I give priority to that and take advantage of taking pictures of the whole process and then publish them on steemit.

If I don’t have any order, I stop for a moment to think about what I’m going to make, I like to vary my blog, so one day I make something crocheted, another day I make something recycled and so I publish it so I don’t bore my followers too much.

#

***The end of the day also has its rewards.***

That’s how it is with my friends, when the afternoon comes I have the best of rewards, seeing my children and my husband arrive, is my greatest joy, knowing that they arrived well, gives me a lot of peace and tranquility. For those of us who live in Venezuela perhaps they can understand me better.

But here I did not come to talk about ugly things, my days are not like that, my days are happy and calm, my days are not to worry but to take care of myself.

![3a361-28.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWtvVJCCSseTG8NPaedUeGkAv8UKDkfTHn57kPEvAtDkE/3a361-28.png)

My husband is my coat, he’s the greatest prize life has ever given me. I am very happy with him; as in all homes, there are differences, but when you notice a certain difficulty in the family environment, we all sit down and talk.

https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmQkZS4ipBXVtd7uLJGKSKuJ4TxZF6kQf6GaurvoouEWnf/image.png

My day in general is very quiet, I think I have worked a lot in this life to make it so. As I said at the beginning my family is everything and for them I fight and work, with them I have fun, with them I enjoy walks from time to time, with them I enjoy a nice meal or a movie.

#

«I am the one who raises the sun, I am the one who puts the sun to bed.»

Once I was asked at my son’s school what my profession was, to which I replied «Home Engineer». When I go to bed, I sigh and close my eyes to rest my body, but my mind does not stop working, in those minutes of silence I take advantage of organizing my ideas, since I am going to cook, who I have to pay, what diligence I have to do, what jobs have priority, what the manual work of the day is going to do and I even give a mental review around the house to see if we shut the door or if the water keys are turned off (In my country the water goes out a lot).

With my tired eyes I put myself in the hands of God and the Virgin. I thank God for that day that he gave me and I put my dream into my hands to wake up with his blessing in a new dawn.

A very special gift, cushions embroidered in cross-stitch. 🌷

FAMILY scented cushions.

Today I want to start my post thanking God for the family, for having each one of them in my life, if you ask me where I want to be born again I would say here, next to you. Thank you God for my mother who continues to live many more years together with us giving us all that love that always makes our day and also grateful for each one of my brothers and sisters whom I see very little of but in spite of the distance I always carry them in my heart.

***Hello my friends, welcome back to my blog; behind every craft I make there is a story, a memory or a very special being.***

     ***Today I come to tell you about my sister Gloria, she’s a little older than me and since we were little girls we used to walk up and down together. Recently my sister had to leave in search of opportunities in other lands but before leaving she gave me these cross-stitch embroideries. For those of us who love these things we know that something like this is invaluable, it really is a very well done job and they have the colors that I love, I really fell in love since I saw it.***

#

***Design and style***

     ***The designs for embroidery are very varied, there are for applications, accessories, baby lingerie, kitchen, clothing and many more things. Every piece that uses embroidery is transformed into a delicate, elegant piece..***

https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmXRtx9viSGrZweaRHmCiNsJYMCGupiSF89NkUf7AigKzL/image.png

     ***I think my sister chose a motif or design that stands out, I could notice that she used 2 threads and I liked that more since it’s my embroidery style, in the magazines or on the web we can find many models, so don’t ever stop looking.***

https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZdqrthx4MgcTBWpvfmje91T3CaxCmCXX32H1UZTHaRqT/image.png

     ***The ideal thread for cross-stitching is the muline thread, a cotton thread made up of six plies, easily divisible to embroider with the number of threads required. It is best to separate the threads as needed. It is recommended to work with threads of 45 cm maximum, if they are longer they lose their shine and become tangled and frayed.***

#

***Let’s make some cushions with love 🌷***

     ***I am very grateful to my sister for giving me this beautiful detail, I just finished the sewing work to develop these spectacular cushions that now decorate my living room.***

***If you use a good combination of fabrics you will generate a piece that will transform the usual fabrics into something that delicately decorates the area or space you choose to use.***

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmYmVFBXRcU2nBSZ7VR7HVrV9imqYZmXQKrZEjRP2bNdVt/image.png)

     ***I hope you enjoyed this beautiful and emotional work; family is the most important thing in life, the happiest moments of my life are with them. Now you are also part of my life, so here we will be together for a while, I say goodbye, until the next post friends, bye bye.***

‘PowerHouseCreatives Contest’ 🌺A letter to Carolina on her 15th 🌺

Dear Carolina,

    ***I want to write you this letter and I hope that something will happen to you after reading it. You know that I love you very much and the only thing I want is that you continue to do well in your life. You are now 15 years old and you are starting another stage in your life, you are no longer a child but a woman, more mature and more prepared to face what is coming in your life.***

    ***With these words I do not intend to scare you or worry you before your time, perhaps many have spoken to you and told you countless times how life is and how we should face it, so do not be afraid of what I am going to write you. They say that in life we must make our own mistakes and we must learn from them, so do not be afraid to make your own decisions.***

    ***know you’ve been a very quiet, playful, respectful girl but that’s not all, life flies by and you better take some things seriously so that your future is very profitable. The advice I want to give you are those that could give you a mother, that being who loves you most in life and would give it all for you.***

    ***let me tell you that you are very beautiful, stop thinking that you are ugly or that you are very freckled, those are things that God gave you to make you even more beautiful. You’re not very skinny either, so don’t take too many vitamins to get fat. Self-esteem is important, you must love yourself first if you want others to love you, look at yourself in the mirror and see in it the luck you have to be the way you are, there are many people in the world who didn’t have the same luck as you and even worse there are many who couldn’t even be born.***

    ***And love others, remember that what you sow in this world you will reap the same, so I invite you to value the friendships, to appreciate and love them as they are, do not want to change them ever, just accept them and you will earn their love and respect. In life there are many false people, I do not say that they are far away, maybe they were not to blame for being so, but keep them away is all.***

    ***Asking for time to pass quickly, rather live day by day, enjoy each sunrise and thank God for a day lived. I know that you want to run but there is another saying that says that from the hurry only the tiredness remains, then it is better that you plan well the things that you want. I invite you to take courses in your free time, learn a language, an art and read many books, maybe now you don’t understand but with each thing you do you will be preparing a better path towards your future.***

    ***Your loved ones is important, respecting your parents and understanding them is not easy, many times you think they are against you, but it is not so, your mom loves you infinitely and does everything for you. Someday you’re going to wonder why she took you out of the house so early, but it was all for your own good, so that you could study and have a different education in every aspect and your dad is not so strict, he just puts on a shield so that those 10 children he has don’t go off the rails. For your father you are and will always be his chilindrina. Embrace your parents, love them like never before and enjoy every moment you can be with them.***

    ***While this happens be brave, if you feel alone some day look for God, go to church and if you want to cry cry, that’s one way to vent your sorrows, they say that after each storm the sun rises again, then everything will pass.***

    ***Going like that, you’re very pretty and quiet, I think that makes you get along well, keep being happy and singing like you do, you don’t know how much you make other people’s lives happy. Never change my beautiful girl, if someone wants to be with you it’s because they love you and accept you as you are.***

    ***To finish I want to tell you something that I once saw on a billboard «Life is written with a pencil without an eraser» that’s Carolina, think well about what you want to write in your book of life so you don’t have to wish for an eraser ever and ever.***

    ***Know it’s your 15th birthday and I would really like to hug you and give you a big kiss, but from a distance I wish you the best in this life, I hope you have a special day and enjoy your 15th birthday dance.***

    ***Do something for me, please, «don’t ever stop laughing»***

«How steemit changed my life»

    ***In a short time I will be 2 years in Steemit and that has made me think a lot about what I have done, what I have learned and has transformed my life.***

    ***Steemit knocked on my door one day and I let him in. I confess that it was not easy, I always thought that if I had had someone who worked at steemit and lived near my house it would have been different, but it was not like that; that was the most difficult thing, to learn alone, of course in Discord I could get many people who kindly taught me and with their infinite patience guided me to learn little by little.***

![3a361-28.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWtvVJCCSseTG8NPaedUeGkAv8UKDkfTHn57kPEvAtDkE/3a361-28.png)

    ***On this path I have learned many things and have put into practice a lot of knowledge but today I can say that the sum of constancy + patience + perseverance have been the main factors that have helped me reach the goal.***

    ***Everything has become easier, I now know more about cryptomonies, about photography, how to write a text and even better I have improved my spelling. Now it’s my turn to help others to overcome the obstacles and thus move forward in this wonderful experience with the Steemit family.***

***Economically speaking.***

    ***Today I am doing very well with the profits, with my crafts I have reached many corners of the world and people follow me and give me their support. It’s very exciting to see that people leave you their good comments and encourage you to keep going.***

    ***But it’s no secret what’s happening in my country, I’m sure if there was a better economy the story would be different, if there wasn’t this hyperinflation I could tell you wonderful things about the profits I make, but unfortunately for now I can only say that I must keep working hard every day to help at home with what I earn.***

#

***My friends from steemit.***

    ***I have a lot of virtual friends, I think that is also a gain and adds happiness to my life. With them I laugh, learn, have fun and have a good time. With many I have built good friendships that have gone beyond the computer or the phone, they are all great people I love.***

***My corner to be happy..***

    ***My life is 100% better, more enjoyable and entertaining. Before, I only took care of the house and did the orders for my clients and the rest was watching TV and watching my cell phone, but now I’m always in some project, in an activity. In my blog I have shared a lot of material about recycling and that has made me cross borders. I have followers from all over the world and that makes me feel loved, accepted and I think that with what I do I have helped many people.***

#

***For the future.***

    ***If you asked me how long I want to keep working at steemit, I’d say for the rest of my life. Today I am part of a great company, I am a partner of millions of people and this company will continue to grow. Today we are a beta project but soon we will be alpha and that fills me with hope.***

    ***Finally, I would like to thank you for your patience and love. I say goodbye, bye bye.***

‘PowerHouseCreatives Contest’ My father, a light on my path

***Hello my friends, today I come to tell you a new story that inspired me this PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Eye Spy With My Little Eye Again (Contest Details)organized by our friend @zord189.***

These days that I was visiting my parents’ house, I was able to rest and take advantage of visiting many places where I was able to play, run and have fun with my siblings. It filled me with nostalgia to think how our lives have changed and how I was happy. In spite of the poverty with which our parents raised us, we never felt hungry or cold.

#

***A very special memory***

At home there is a tree that my father planted many years ago, it is a beautiful Saman, very green and splendid; that is my special place where I can sit and rest. A place where you can only breathe peace.

I was barely 9 or 10 years old and many changes were beginning to take place on the farm. My father, who had been a sugar cane farmer all his life, was convinced to change his agricultural field, so after many years everything became tomato fields.

One day my father and I sat under that tree in Saman on a bench or elongated chair made by himself and where he sat for hours reading a book on Sundays. That day my father and I had a very transcendental conversation. My father asked me:
What do you want to be when you grow up?
to which I replied
Teacher.

And he smiled and hugged me and said, «you have to teach a lot of kids.»

The relationship between my father and me was very special, today that he is no longer with us he is still for me the most wonderful man in the world.

I wanted to tell you this story because it is a memory that I keep with much affection in my mind. And here while I write these lines I do not stop looking at his smile and our complicity in doing things. I invite you to love and take care of your parents and even though we may not agree on everything, they deserve respect, affection and love.

#

***This is the tree today.***

Soy de los Andes, soy todo corazón.

«Mi viaje al Táchira» segunda parte.

***Hola mis amigos, yo les cuento que continuo con frió aquí en Guatire y como me traje mi chocolate de corona de allá del vecino país Colombia pues me estoy dando un gusto enorme.***

***Miestras añoro mi tierra, su frió y su gente voy tomando mi chocolate y recordando cada cosa que vivimos en estos 20 días que estuvimos por allá.***

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmU7u8zHhmNg3Vro7PeCD38kgbuaH2fz2X5JSW3W7wqU6C/image.png)

***Como les contaba en días pasados disfruté mucho este viaje y es que como ahora por allá no hay gasolina para poder llenar el tanque y salir de paseo nos toca estar en casa con la familia, eso por un lado es bueno, yo aproveche y me puse al día con todo lo que esta sucediendo en esas tierras. También pude visitar mis amistades de la infancia y recordar travesuras y anécdotas que nos sucedieron.***

***Era más el tiempo que estábamos sin luz, así que la gente se ha inventado o reinventado para poder pasar el tiempo, todas las noches rezábamos con mi mamá y le hicimos la novena al niño Jesús, en las tardes jugábamos bingo o ludo.***

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmYQw3zY22VnkxKMx7YnDWYAVwDLQM5zGTwZV3UMZPEUWo/image.png)

***Pero no crean que todo es diversión, mi mamá con sus 84 años no para de trabajar y de ponerle a uno oficio, desde temprano cantan los gallos y los pájaros son por montón, osea que no hubo día para dormir hasta tarde, apenas uno se levanta hay que prender el fogón de leña porque por allá tampoco hay gas desde hace meses; luego del rico desayuno con su respectiva pisca andina nos poníamos en la búsqueda de la leña.***

***Pero no todo es trabajo amigos, también fuimos de visita o más bien de compras por Cúcuta, en realidad es muy cerca de mi casa a media hora más o menos. les cuento que si vale la pena ir a comprar, sobre todo la comida. Lo que mas me gustó del viaje fue un jugo de guanaba con leche que venden ahí y le agregan pulpa de la fruta junto con leche condensada, uuummmmm que rico.***

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmNuY54YwJVhD4w6CK8gA8xNuD38Lj1qsAmzz7TpAsLdxs/image.png)

***A pesar de todas esas adversidades extraño mi casa, mi familia y sobretodo a mi madre querida. Este diciembre me regalo cosas ricas para comer, nos hizo su especialidad la sopa de frijol fresco, también hizo un dulce de lechosa con toronja y comimos mucho cochino frito con guineo.***

***Definitivamente hay que ver solo lo bueno, porque si nos ponemos a sacar lo malo no paramos nunca de sufrir. El Táchira algún día volverá a ser el estado esplendoroso que un día fue y su gente volverá a ser feliz, dichosa y afortunada de por haber nacido entre verdes montañas, coloridos campos.***
