I have written extensively on the subject of my mother. She was such a force to be reckoned with. She had the power to change the future and she did. I had a conversation with my sister about the age that my parents were when they got married. My father was 32 and my mother was 25. We giggled about how old my father was to be starting a family. Even my mother, in her Cuban culture, she was kind of old to just be starting out. Then I realized that it took my mother that long to manipulate my father into marrying her. I assure you that she covered all the territory necessary to make it possible. She more than likely infiltrated his family. That was a classic for her. Know thy enemy, and then charm his family was her motto. Not that I like to criticize my mother, but I am fascinated by her ability to make whatever she desires to happen, actually happen. She could push like an earth mover to get it done.
The conversation went on about how she used her power. Couldn’t she have used the same exact power to do well, or have wealth, or in her case, have health? It was absolutely amazing how she was able to manipulate anyone into what she wanted them to do. She was so good that you would think it was your idea to do it. Certainly she could have used this for good.
Of course no deep conversation with Lola ever goes without an epiphany. You see, if my mother had not mentally abused, stalked and forced my father, Lola and I would not even be having this conversation. There is good in everything. So push it. Push it real good.
