Happy New Year folks! Wish you just the best for 2016. The last year has been a wonderful one to many of you, but many people are saying that 2015 was a terrible year and that they hope that 2016 will be a better one. Well in Iwans and my case 2015 has been the worst year of our lifes and I can tell ya that I’ve been through a lot for the fact that I am only 30 years old. In March we lost three most amazing angels to death and then also I had to fight for my life. (I am sorry that I can not tell you details by now, maybe one day I will.) Although I had some strokes in my life before, I have to say that nothing ever hit me harder. But here we go, that’s life, we had to get up and to fight again. Our socioenvironment has the power to help us to overcome easier all the obstacles or to make it worse and so we had to deal with many disappointments too. In my case I can tell ya, it was not my best friend, my favorite cousin or aunt that has been there for me. (Of course this persons are not anymore a part of my life.) In bad times you learn who your real friends are and to whom you really matter. Also living in a time, where Social Media counts that much, there is not much space for negativity or deep mourning. Bereaved family members aint cool, nothing with what you can brag on Facebook, Instagram and Co.

But there is also always a bright side doesn’t mattter how cruel the situation is. We learned it the hard way who our true friends and family members are and what persons were a pure waste of time, money and energy. That’s why I want to use this post to thank my beloved ones. I am so grateful to have such an amazing brother who has supported me my whole life and so in this awful situation. I am so thankful for his kids – I love being an aunty! Nothing makes me happier than spending time with them. I am blessed to have such an amazing friend like Lubica in my life! When she learned what happened, she left the office immediately an run into to the hospital to visit me. Thanks for her support since then and for all her prayers. A big thank you to my cousins Vuk und Milan for offering help and for all the motivational words. Thanks to my French family for the lovely messages. I am thankful for my big aunty, who is calling me since then every single day, thanks to the app Viber 🙂 Katrin, I am so so so happy to call you one of my best friends and to have you by my side!

To Annabelle, Lillyanne and Gabriel you are the best part of 2015! We love you endlessly! And of course I want to say thank you to Iwan, the best hubby on this world, my one and only, my everything! I couldn’t be more blessed having such an amazing man by my side. We start this year in health and with full energy and are so excited about what’s in for us in 2016. Again wishing you a Happy New Year 2016 and may this year bring you all health and happiness.
