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.
