I am a 40-something European woman doing what I once thought wasn't possible: finding happiness after infertility. While it's been a long, difficult and emotional journey (10 unsuccessful IVF treatments), each day I take another step down the path toward a fulfilling new life. This is my story of reinvention.

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom
Have you read any book of Paolo Giordano? I love his books, I've read all the novels he has written so far.
I had hard day at work yesterday - mainly because the numbers of new coronavirus cases are increasing so steeply. 180.000 new cases in one day only. It is scary to think what the future will bring. How many lives and jobs will be lost.
So it was the perfect way to spend my evening by reading Paolo Giordano's latest book that he wrote during lockdown: How contagion works.
I like the book - you get the insight of an Italian's thoughts and feelings during the lockdown.
I love how he ends his book. He says he thinks a lot about Psalm 90 lately, especially these lines:
Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
I googled the psalm 90 and read it for the very first time. It is beautiful.
