The Angel of New Year

December 31, 2014

This year is special,

This year is blessed.

***

I listen to the fireworks outside,

However, it’s peaceful and quiet inside the house.

Children are already sleeping, after a long day outdoors.

It has been colder than – 20 Celcius, but today,

The weather was really nice, just couple of minus degrees.

***

I have spend a lot of time in the kitchen,

we have baked traditional finnish pasteries, cinnamon buns and cakes.

I’m grateful,

This christmas has been wonderful, in particular, if  I compare it to the last one.

This year I have found the Christmas spirit in everyday chores,

In meetings with relatives,

In moments when we do different things together.

***

It has become clear to me

How much and how many ways we can be helped by angels.

And as always,

We just have to ask for help.

***

This beautiful Angel came with Christmas spirit for me.

In real life, I don’t know the landscape in the painting,

but my heart recognizes it,

It feels like home.

When I look at the painting, I feel safe and calm:

I belong there in some way…

***

I wish you all

a blessed and peaceful New Year 2015.
