White roses from Finland
No other like it! I mean friendships among people; they are a real foundation for peace and prosperity. How are you all my virtual friends all around the world? I do hope that the life is treating you favorable enough in these difficult and chaotic days.
Nothing is as it has been before, that is a certainty. I am not saying it should be, but somehow I do miss a quiet moment, a tranquil minute to reflect. Yeah, I know who is stopping me? The answer is: The clock.
Today I am happy. My daughter Katri is well settled in her new home, her brand new-fangled horse stable is a marvel and horses are happy. Pekka (my husband) still loves me and… in addition I am happy to tell you that my father is going to be honored on Finland's Independence Day, 6 of December, Esko-papa receives the First Class Medal, in Order of the White Rose of Finland as a symbol thanks for his war years.
I leave you hopefully in good health with the following:
