Salad for Midsummer celebrations
I have so many childhood memories about Midsummer celebrations.They used to be always with all of my family and cousins.
I had used to think that Midsummer celebrations means something where whole big family (cousins and so on..) come together and share lots of fun and positively with each other.
The time have passed and some things have changed through it.
Sometimes it seems a little sad that we don't have anymore those kind of huge Midsummer celebrations; that some people have decided to keep more distance or even a barriers with each other.They have let the little disagreements came and never let them go anymore.That's how a families breaks.💔People communicate from ego to ego, instead of from soul to soul. Have started forgotten the empathy, forgiveness,to holding together with family.
Other side, this is a rich lesson for my future life.And to be honest,I am also happy and feel blessed to celebrate just with only a few family member like it worked out this time.I had amazing time with my little brother, middle sister,mom and a cat.I totally could be sure about sincere warm trustful atmosphere.I felt comfortable. I felt loved.And that's how everyone should feel in their family.
Thank you my little brother being one of my best friend and always taking care of me and of others around you. Thank you for your pure huge heart. Your calmness and balanced personality is so inspirational.Thank you for that,I'm so glad I have you.
Thank you my sister for your lovely sparkly eyes when you laugh with me; for your great will to help people around you,even in the hardest situation,you still find the way to help or try to make my mood better.Thank you for showing me it is possible to get out from the darkest and deepest corner when you really want and when you have those dreams full of light. Thank you for trusting me.I'm so glad about you.
Thank you my mom.You are my mom and that's already says everything. Awesome person.Awesome inspiration.
I am also very thankful for the rest of my family too,who didn't able to be with us this time but it do not cut down my love for them.Beautiful people.
