We are well into the second week of the new year and in order to take the good feelings from the holidays with us – I thought you might enjoy listening to this glorious rendition of Auld Lang Syne by Sissel an amazing soprano from Norway – her full name is Sissel Kyrkjebø (Norwegian ; born 24 June 1969 in Bergen), also simply known as Sissel.
Getting back to work was tough – it seemed like the holidays were longer than usual this year due to the two weekends of Xmas and New Year – so taking the good feelings and blessings with us for another week is why I am sharing this with you. My sister sent me this video from London – and I have watched it and many of the other videos by Sissel – she is beautiful, pure looking, with the voice of an angel. I am in awe at the purity of each note – you do not have to be a musician to appreciate her talent – very moving.
I feel the same way about my grandchildren – they are so pure, untouched by life, and full of hope and happiness, smiles and giggles – how blessed they are and how blessed I am to be here to share in these wonderful early years. Keeping them at peace, with nothing but joy and play in their minds, laughter on their faces and safety in their hearts – is my mission in life. May you be blessed with such gifts in your home, family, community and your world.
Above is a photo of my four grandsons, Jack, Jonah, Noah and Gabriel ( or is it Gabriel and Noah) – since the twins ( now 8 weeks) are identical it’s tough to tell who is who – but they are both glorious! I am a VERY fortunate grandma!
