Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I have been at the post office today and sent some gifts to Norway that should been sent a long, long time ago 😔. But it’s not the easiest thing to reach the post office when I’m in general are at work or need to work during the time the post office is open. And now at days the post office is just open from Monday to Friday too, and then between 8.30 to 14.30,- in that time I’m working 😔. But today I reached the post office because I also needed to pick up my new passport, and then I did dropped by the post office on my way to the Norwegian Consulate 😊. And there’s not very much “post in the store” here in Spain as they have in Norway either.
This gift was finish some years ago, and the plan was to bring them with me to Norway myself at that time, but, unfortunately, I couldn’t priority any trips to Norway because of economic reasons. That’s the way it is,- and I’m not sure when I actually can travel to Norway at the moment. It’s not the easiest time to travel anywhere at the moment.
The gift is to a couple that was so incredibly kind to borrow their attic to us so we could have and take care of what was left of our things and stuffs in Norway. Actually our memories.
I’m more grateful for this guest than I probably ever will manage to show them, but I hope they will see some of my gratefulness in the gifts 🧡.
I’m going to send some more gifts up to them later. I have actually created more, because I’m so, so thankful that we didn’t also lost those things too in something that felt a bit like living in a tornado at that moment. We lost so much at that time 😔.
It’s many years since I felt was living in this tornado, but it also took many years to get the tornado on distance 🌪.
I did paint two paintings to this couple, and I called the paintings for “Black and white” because that’s something this people really are not like at all,- black and white 🎨.
Maybe it sounds strange to call a painting and two for more and less the opposite then I feel and think, but for me it felt correct. They are so open minded and helpful, and there’s no no form of judgment or condemnation. Something I really didn’t need at that time. To be honest, I don’t feel I needed now either, but unfortunately, many people are a bit to good to do exactly that, – judge and condemnation. Special when they haven’t been in a tornado situation or an other person’s shoes,- if you understand what I mean?
For me the illustration in this painting stands for my gratefulness as well as for their incredibly big heart and help. The colours represent Thankfulness, hope, love, future. And as you can see there not just black and white. But because of the black and white the other colours showing a kind of softer texture and touch,- like I felt they gave me with their help 🧡.
I know it’s “just” things and stuffs that was in this attic, but for me and my children it’s, like I mention, memories, the rest what’s left from our good memories from the past, our past.
It can seems like the painting are in their own way similar, and they also are, at the same time as you can see this last one is more “flying” with the heart. It’s actually my love and gratefulness I’m sending them, this couple that helped us to take care of our memories 🧡. It’s like I just want to embrace them for their help with this “flying” heart 🤗.
I have been thinking a lot about this and that our things and stuffs was at their attic. Not just on their attic, but also on “overtime” too 😔.
Hopefully I will manage to “correct up” some things after this tornado long time ago now in the future. With “correct up” I mean try to take some other and new choices and directions in my life, as well as better solutions for the future then be in a tornado 😊. And also show the people around me how much I presage their help during the tornado many years ago 🧡.
My focus during the lasts years has been to try to mitigate the damage the tornado did to my children. Now I have to try to clean up some of the other damage this tornado did in my life. I will not manage it all, because there’s so much that belongs to the past, and it’s actually not possible to go back to the past and “correct up” different damage or acts. But there’s a day today and a future I can do something good and positive with 😊.
What I can do is try to find a way to deal with the different damage after the tornado in a better way then I have done 😊.
Anyway,- I hope the gifts will bring this incredible couple some kind of joy 😊. If not, maybe they can lighting up their attic as a “reminder” about us that “occupied” their attic for years 😊.
I’m very grateful – and I really hope they know- I hope they can see and feel my gratefulness in the paintings in some or another way 🧡.
And,- I have some few more gifts I need to send to Norway during the nexts weeks, but hopefully I will find a solution for that when the time is there 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊.
I have sent some gifts to Norway today. Something I should done long time ago, but life is and life happens. And it’s not always easy to control “all and everything” in life 💚. I’m more grateful for this help a couple in Norway did gave me and my children than I can give any expression for. Hopefully the paintings tells a bit how grateful I’m for the help 🧡.
