The other day Diego experienced another small bullying incident. Nothing huge, but it still breaks my heart. I did all the right things, Diego did all the right things and life kept going. What amazes me is that every time Diego goes through a difficult experience, he becomes stronger. I think that growing and becoming stronger has a lot to do with overcoming difficulties.

In this song Al Green asks: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? I believe that love is the answer. Love is the answer to everything. The kid that misbehaved has his own issues. I recognize that his heart is also broken, even though it is  for a different set of reasons. Instead of showing him negativism, I did the opposite. He was confused because he expected  me to be mad.  For a second he looked at me with his amazing beautiful eyes and I saw not a bully but someone who’s desperately in need of love.

I believe that what generates most of the bad things on this planet is the lack of love. This post is to share my pain with you, but also my joy, the joy of having amazing children that have a strong sense of self because they are loved and understood.

If your heart is broken for any reason at this time, please know that I care and that I send you a big tight hug. Sometimes the sky seems so dark, but behind the cloudy horizon there is always the sun, ready to come out and shine 🙂

How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?

by Al Green.

I can think of younger days when living for my life
Was everything a man could want to do
I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again

I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees
And misty memories of days gone by
We could never see tomorrow, no one said a word about the sorrow

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again
