It seems so exceptional
Things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sun comes up and shines so bright
It disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Christmas crafting table photo by iHanna of

I’ve been really sick and that is always awful as you know. I got some kind of ill-willed germ that emptied my stomach and made my body muscles hurt. After one traumatic night I could finally fall asleep, and that felt like coming to heaven. Sleeping is so lovely. I’ve been sleeping heavily for hours and hours and I have not eaten a proper meal yet. I don’t know if I ever want to eat again.

When I drank my first glass of water that felt like the best thing that happened to me this year. It was so delicious, that pure and simple glass of water. When one can’t eat, walk or function one understands how lucky one is after all, in spite of everything.

I have several projects that I want to tell you about, and even some Christmas pages (!) in my art journal that I want to share, but I haven’t been able to sit straight up for a couple of days and now the rest of the family is sick. Maybe tomorrow I’ll write something, maybe not.

Before I became sick I wrote the Christmas cards which made me sad this year. I miss the people I wrote to so much and I would rather go to them and deliver hugs and presents instead of writing postcards from far away. It was hard to keep the Christmas wishes cheerful and happy when I wanted to sob into the cards and damn the circumstances that made this year to what it has been. Next year will have to be a better year, oh how I hope that it will…

Paper Angel  photo by iHanna of

At least I did something fun: I’ve folded a paper angel that fellow blogger Jojo created. I think she is awesome (both Jojo and the paper angel).

I’m listening to Oprah and friends radio – lots of interesting people on, among other Eckhard Tolle!
