Today was an amazing beautiful day, the sky was clear and blue, the sun was shining. I could hear birds singing. For a November day it was surprisingly warm.

In the mist of recent events I have shied away from looking at the news, my heart is still heavy, but I try to see the bright sides of life.

I would like to thank everyone for your very nice comments, I will reply to them in the days to come. I am touched by all this love and compassion. Thank you!

I am relieved to say that my friends and family are all sound and safe.

Yesterday, things were strange, the streets were too empty for a Saturday. Many businesses had shut down for the day, out of respect. I spend a lot of time with my family, I even got to see my best friend and her mother. It was good to see people, to be with those I love.

Today, I was happy to see that life was coming back, people were enjoying the sun. The laughter of children filled the air.

I tried to make the most out of today, not have my mind wander into dark zones. I kept my eyes open for beauty to share with you.

Almost every day I walk past two things. One I have never consciously seen, but it made me smile. The other, I have often remarked, but never photographed to share, but today I made sure to snap a picture of a quote that can warm hearts.

door sign, flowers

I walk past this heartwarming sign almost daily, but I never noticed it until today
