Lovely moments

I am back. I have missed my blog.

This year there were many lovely moments connected with our new house. We are so happy that our dreams have come true! 

There were so many beautiful moments during the summer and early autumn - not connected only with our new home.

I was cycling few weeks ago when a car overtook me and then stopped in the middle of the road. I thought it was strange when suddenly a kind voice called my name. It was my cousin's friend with whom I spent few days at the seaside last year and the year before - when I was visiting my cousin and her kids. I enjoyed swimming together with her two children and my cousin's two children. The kids loved swimming with me... because I love swimming and their mothers not that much.

Then suddenly the door of the car  opened and there was 11-year-old girl, she ran towards me and hugged me. She said: "I missed you this summer!"  Her mother smiled and said: "Can you see... you really make huge impression on the kids." 

My heart melted... it was such a warm and lovely moment.

That was the moment when I realized what I want out of my life. To be connected with the world. And to live for lovely moments like that.

I promised the girl that the next year I will plan my holiday with my cousin in the week when she will be there as well.

Another lovely moment was at the seaside. I went on the beach with my cousin's daughter, she is  9.  Out of the blue she asked me how come I didn''t have children of my own. I replied that I wanted to have them but I couldn't. She thought for a moment and then wanted to know if she understood correctly so she checked whether I didn't want to have them or couldn't have them. I replied. She wanted to know how was it possible that you couldn't have them. I told her that when she was older she could ask again if she wanted and I would tell her. That now she was too little for details. She said that she has only one question - how old did she have to be. I replied that when she was 20.  She said OK.

I wish conversation with adults were that easy!


  1. Welcome back, dear Klara! I have missed your blogging too :)
    I agree with you: I also wish adults would be able to accept answers like children do. xoxo

  2. Such a heartwarming post, Klara! Like Lea, I am glad to see you writing again. Also feel the same amount of joy at those lovely movements. And, I have the capacity now to really appreciate them when they arise. xo

  3. I love it. "That was the moment when I realized what I want out of my life. To be connected with the world." That is perfect. I have connected more with the world this year than the past six years before that and it feels good. It hasn't been instant. It's taken a lot of time, time that I'm thankful I gave myself while grieving. But now I have moved and I'm finishing up school, working hard, meeting new people, and exploring new places and that is a good way to describe how I feel: reconnected with the world.

    I'm focusing on school and not writing right now, but it is so nice to log on and read your latest post. Happy new home still! Thank you for sharing these two moments. They brought a smile to my face. :)

  4. Dear Klara, I am happy to read from you as well :-). And I do love both stories, too.
    Have a nice weekend!

  5. Welcome back, Klara, it's great to see a new post from you! :) I am glad you had a good summer!
