Cadena de Amor, Ikatatlo. Chain of Love, Third. When I hear the word love, I think of my family and my friends. However, it's interesting how this series is prompting me to explore other facets of love, the so called love in disguise. What have you learned about love?
Some cadena de amor (Chain of Love) vines coil and constrict like a snake. Some people who claim to love you are like snakes. They constrict, suffocate and poison. Always keep a pair of sharp scissors and a knife handy. The scissors so you can immediately cut the vine; the knife so can skin the snake. Better yet, just run away! Run, run far away!

I am reminded of my Mother telling me and my brothers and sisters how to run away from a snake, when I was a kid.
This is different, isn't it? :)
