Hello my friends. "Christos Anesti", many happy returns to everybody! I wish you all to be healthy and happy! I'm so sorry I skiped this Mondays' weekly links, but I was so happily busy with all that Easter preparations and I really didn't find the time to write...and to be pretty honest... I really wanted to dedicate my time and my love to friends and family, because I believe they need it the most. We had five days of Easter holiday here in Greece this year, which is pretty long time and it was really wonderful. Lots of rest, lots of food, lots of togetherness, lots of love.... we all need these moments from time to time. But I didn't forget you! I'm back wishing you a lovely... rest of the week and sharing with you these beautiful links, even if it's Wednesday!

It's been a strange, rather difficult week with lots of "ups" and downs", followed by a very emotionally charged weekend. We had our dearest aunt's 40 days memorial yesterday, I saw some relatives and old friends I haven't seen for years (some of them for many, many years...), I saw places from the past, too, I realized how some things change over the years , while some others remain the same for ever... years are really passing and it's really hard to say the last "goodbye" to people you've loved the most... but it's very, very important to show your love to them while they're still alive. That's all that matters. To love our people when they're here, with us. Endless memories and thoughts went through my mind these days... when you lose someone you love, you are not only saying "goodbye" to your beloved one, you're saying "goodbye" to a whole part of your life story as well... I don't know which one of the two hurts the most, but I always reach the same conclusion: to love and to live each moment of your life...
The last thing I wanted is to make you feel sad. Life is so beautiful, is just not always pink... Certain difficulties appear to each one of us, we just have to learn to get over them and stand on our feet again. Our beloved persons will always live in our hearts as long as we shall live, but life is going on and I'm 100% sure that "they" want us to live happily...
And as I use to do the last three Mondays now, I also have some lovely links here for you today. I hope you like it!
