The strongest person I know

I met her in a nursery.. we went together to school but started to spend more time together just in the last grades.  She is unique, I always admired her and learned “YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE” from her. She was and still is a perfect example of positive thinking, I had to learn it and she had it naturally. In my early youth years I  started to learn from her to be spontaneous, to express even the craziest thoughts, to enjoy life how it is at that moment, not to try to be perfect for everybody.. and I’m still learning. I always thought – how come she is SO strong when she has this illness and I am so week though I’m not ill.. God really sends angels to this life – living angels amongst us. I am so grateful we can travel this life together even though a thousand miles apart. It’s a pity that our children cannot play together so often and we cannot have those wonderful conversations so often but.. she keeps encouraging me even without saying anything. She started to compose music and lyrics herself, and sing not so long ago.  I was shocked when I heard what she can do.. I cried .. and felt so touched..She started playing the piano and dance after so many eyes’ surgeries, her sight got much worse after she had her son, to say the least.. But she always said – he is a miracle! God can do miracles! God bless her and her family. Love her and miss her so much. Her singing poetry drifts me somewhere far away and usually I cry when I listen to them or quietly smile – it is so meaningful. For me at least.. With her permission I’m sharing one of her songs. Though it’s in Lithuanian I think you can still feel it. Feel free to share if you like it 😉

Daughters of the forest

I came back…from an unbelievable holidays.. They started on the 31st  of July and were full of joy, excitement, new ideas and experience. I came back with a full pack of photos.. I’ll savor them and  bring them to life bit by bit until Christmas comes, I think 🙂 So, the journey began in Norway – a country of beautiful nature, mountains and crystal clear lakes.. that was the first impression.  I had pleasure to visit my hubby’s sister and her family there. Daughters of the forest – I’d like to call them.. And what an amazing hair – God’s gift! I’m jealous 🙂 Follow my blog (or like my page on Facebook) to see  what happened in a lake there next.

One sunny Sunday

At last we had a very nice weather today. I thought we would have rain on all upcoming weekends. It’s 7 o’clock in the morning – and I see the sun! I couldn’t wait for this photo shoot. It  was my pleasure to spend some time with this beautiful family. Surprisingly, not only the girls let me do the plaiting and hairdos but also their mum! So much patience, I’m amazed ✿ Thank you so much for your warmth and smiles ♥ one of these precious moments..
