Amor en general
Amamos con toda nuestra fuerza? Qué puedo yo escribir sobre el amor si los grandes poetas ya nos han regalado los más hermosos versos, las más sensatas descripciones y aún así no existe una definición exacta para entenderlo en toda su magnitud. A veces me pregunto si habré amado tanto como para poder dar una explicación real de lo que implica una de las palabras más usadas en nuestro idioma. Decimos conocerlo pero, ¿hasta qué punto nos sumergimos en el para vivirlo? ¿Amamos con toda nuestra fuerza? Sin divagar y perderme en el tema, el amor nos inspira, es el motor que mueve al mundo, en su nombre se construye la familia, base de la sociedad. El amor es poderoso, transformador, no hay quien resista sus encantos. Amamos de muchas formas y a distintas personas a través de nuestra vida, experimentar ese bello sentimiento nos enriquece y nos ayuda en nuestro crecimiento personal.

Amor a los hijos
• Los hijos son un regalo de la vida y una bendición de Dios. Son los frutos de nuestra existencia y un premio que nos entrega el destino. Como en un espejo, en ellos nos vemos nosotros mismos, por eso tratamos de darles lo que no pudimos tener y siempre luchamos por verlos felices. Son como pedazos de carne, por los que corre nuestra propia sangre y nuestra esencia, aunque no son nuestros. Los hijos son nuestros mientras no puedan valerse, luego serán de su propia familia, así funciona la vida. A ellos dedicamos este podcast, en la que confesamos todo lo bello, lo hermoso y tierno, que nuestros hijos nos hacen sentir, sobre los cuidados en su enseñanza y los valores que debemos inculcarles para que sean personas de bien y tengan éxito en el futuro. El amor entre padres e hijos es el más puro e incondicional que existe. Cuando los niños son algo más mayores son capaces de comprender el significado de las palabras y además, pueden sentir su mensaje en el corazón. Las palabras a veces no son solo palabras y son un mensaje que se desea transmitir para poder plasmar un sentimiento.

Amor a la vida
A veces las situaciones de la vida nos agobian y solemos olvidar el lado bueno de la vida, el día a día nos pone retos y desafíos que a veces nos sobrepasan«Alégrate de la vida porque ella te da la oportunidad de amar, de trabajar, de jugar y de mirar a las estrellas». Henry Van Dyke Esta vida que estamos viviendo se compone de momentos. No de días, no de semanas, no de años, de MOMENTOS … Así que vive el momento, sé consciente de él, disfrútalo y aprende en este momento, es tan simple como eso ….La vida son instantes, y si no es así, ¿entonces qué es la vida? vivimos de breves momentos, que nos hacen sentir satisfechos, aferrarse a ellos sería en vano, es mejor vivir coleccionando lo que son, solo instantes." En este podcast reflexiona y analiza hoy que momentos has vivido y si amas lo que hoy eres en la vida.

Adelso Lemus: Founder and CEO of Adelso's Creations
Adelso's is a love story. It all started out of one man's kitchen inspired by the love for his wife. Adelso wanted to make a little more money for his 25th marriage anniversary. He worked odd hours and had a schedule that made it hard to keep a second job. With limited resources and one creative idea, he decided to use a $20 bill to bake a Tres Leches cake his family and friends often enjoyed at his dinner table in order to raise money for his gift. He took his first dessert out of his home-kitchen-oven and into a local restaurant to have the owner, staff, and customers try out his creation. After that night, the restaurant owner decided to place more orders from Adelso. Adelso’s Creations Bakery started from humble beginnings, with love, a dream, one man’s ingenuity, perseverance, and dedication to his wife. Today, Adelso serves over 100 restaurants in the San Antonio area and his business is booming! The unique pallet of Texas and the creative thinking of Adelso, who reinvented the traditional Tres Leches to include lovely flavor combinations like cherry-vanilla and pineapple-passion, has transformed Adelso's from a small entrepreneurial venture to a high-volume bakery. Flavor infusions that are reminiscent of desserts made by pastry chefs at five-star-restaurants are available at Adelso’s Creations wholesale to the San Antonio and South Texas restaurant-market. It's no wonder the one-of-a-kind desserts have found their way into the City’s most popular Mexican eateries. Adelso's Creations Website  Adelso's Creation A Better Dessert

My work as a filmmaker I get to explore the many stories that comes to my desk, and sometimes I will produce their films and make it happen.. Love to see their eyes widen when they see their film on a big screen or won competition in our festivals. My first show Bailando almost 25 yrs ago with Franco Iglesias went on air with Univision for 3yrs. I created and produce with Match Frame production. I have  three reality shows on the table partner with Bodega Pictures in LA. I produced many short films for others and mine. Now I'm working on a feature film 'The Innocent'. My new love is Woman !Ay Chihuahuas! Magazine . I feature stories and advertise successful businesses across Mexico, Texas  and the rest to U.S. I'm so proud of this gorgeous magazine.
