Today is The 29th of December 2021
This year has been a strange year like a roller coaster in many ways.
Looking through my office window the mountain in Esphinal is glowing. The sun is shining and the cold weather is making the clouds even more beautiful.
December has been extra difficult for me this year for many reasons and I have sometimes thought that I would finally lose my mind!
I did not lose my mind and I am grateful for that.
Life is full of experience and unexpected happenings.
Love knocked on my door this year and that was perhaps the greatest thing that happened and compared to so many years before it has been an adventure from day one.
Love is a strange thing!
It can be peaceful and it can be wild plus everything in between.
My love has been full of surprises. It has made me look at myself through different eyes.
I have got to know me as a totally different person and that in its self is a great journey.
I have become stronger but also weaker.
Stronger knowing that I am being appreciated by someone completely different from all others I know.
Weaker knowing that my strength can sometimes step into my way and take over and become the controller of everything when it would be wiser and better just to stay calm and keep my mouth shut and think at least million times before I speak.
The future is ahead and I am looking forward to the adventures of next months and the coming years.
I am grateful for my health and for my strong body.
I am grateful for my mind and my strong will.
I am grateful for my persistence and never giving up.
I am grateful for the beautiful visit I got just before Christmas. 3 men came knocking at my door bringing the best gift ever.
I am grateful for the bag hanging at my door when I opened the front door the day before yesterday. A surprise that made me realize what a wonderful neighbour I have got.
I am grateful for the challenge I got from those who hate me. They have showed me my strength and where my right to speak up lies.
I am grateful for the new friends I have gained during this year, friends from different continents and different culture are precious.
I am grateful for friends returning to my life, friends who had been away for a while but came back.
Most of all my gratitude is to the one who loves me unconditionally every day, no matter how wild and sometimes difficult I am.
Everything happens for a reason.
Everything is up to me to make my life beautiful and exciting this new approaching year,
I wish you all, who read this, a perfect new year and I pray the Almighty will protect you every day and night.
Let’s make the year 2022 the best ever.
United we are strong and nothing can stop us from happiness and joy.
