Do you see the photos above? This is for me true silver lining of childless life. Having flexibility to travel.
I found out very last minute that I can go to Sicily on a business travel and so I went. I returned home yesterday. My time for sightseeing was very limited, but it was awesome, I enjoyed every minute of it.
I am attaching some photos. Some beautiful photos are missing, since I didn't have time to take them. Photos of fresh and delicious fruits that I bought on market. Photos of very sweet sweets (I love sweets, but Sicilian sweets are too sweet for me). And also poor and dirty streets 15 minutes away from Unesco city centre.
I visited a church of Saint Agatha. As usual, I sat down and prayed. And then I made a wish. Not that long ago, my wish was always the same. I begged God to give us a child.
I am wiser now. When I pray, I wish health and happiness for me, my husband, my parents and all people that are close to me. I ended my prayer with a thought: "God, when I am very very old, I really wish to look back to my life and think: This is not the life I planned, but no other life would I love to have more."
