Hope of Easter

It’s hard to believe that the first quarter of 2021 has already passed and that it’s time to celebrate Easter. But can we really celebrate? Last year Easter took place in the shade of coronavirus, as more countries and more people were affected by it. We were asked to isolate, to not meet with relatives and to make an exception and skip visits to churches despite Easter being the most important Catholic holiday. We did what we were asked to do and still the curve of new infections still continued to drop and rise up in its own rythm. It was hard to predict how things will look later.

And here we are today, one year later, at Easter time again. The world didn’t go back to normal and methinks that nothing will ever look the same after this pandemic. And while for many countries things start to look brighter, in Poland things have been getting worse. We just can’t seem to get a hold of the situation, our government is making weird decision which are not consulted with respective environments and they are being announced last minute. We are at the pitiful end in terms of new infections and deaths.

I didn’t expect that second Easter in a row will be so miserable and still highly affected by the pandemic situation in the country. I thought that by now things will get better but I was wrong. But Easter is all about hope and new beginnings so I’m grabbing hope by its hand and I’m not going to let it go. No matter what’s the situation in your living area, I hope you can celebrate this holiday in some way. I’m wishing you a peaceful & happy Easter, no matter what. Things are bound to get better soon, no? As long as we don’t give up, we are good. We all have a reason to keep going!

And please excuse me for not writing for a while – I had no interesting perfume to tell you about and there was more work that kept me busier. Hopefully soon I’ll have something to share with you.

This Christmas – together yet apart

Christmas is a time of feeling bright, joyful. A time when happiness should overflow as it fills our hearts, souls and bodies. When kindness crushes the walls that some people build around them and when forgiveness wins over grudge. This time of the year our homes get filled with the scent of gingerbread and with colorful twinkle of lights on a Christmas tree. A truly idyllic time of the year.

Until now we took all these things for granted, they felt like something obvious that comes at the end of any December. 2020 turned the world upside down & completely rearranged our lives. Instead of regular meetings we had to invest in masks, gloves and hand sanitizers. Of course the year with covid introduced a lot of fear and uncertainty to our hearts. We all were worried about our families and friends. I lost my uncle, maybe some of you also had to say the last goodbye to a relative or someone who was close to you. In the pile of this year’s misfortune please join me and refuse to lose your hope. Maybe this is the right time to find happiness in the tiniest good things, to understand all over again that we don’t need much to feel content. Yes, I miss travelling, I miss live contact with other people, with friends but I’m imagining how thrilled I will be when I can do these things again.

For tomorrow, for Christmas I’m wishing each and every one of you plenty of health for these wicked times. The saying “you got everything if you got good health” is especially accurate this year. Have faith and believe that 2021 will bring us relief. I know this Holiday will be quite different, but hopefully not worse or less cheerful. Stay strong! From my heart to your heart – Merry Christmas!
