13 fruits

Hello everyone!!! Since we are still waiting here in Italy to say goodbye to the year 2017, I just wanted to share with you my thoughts about events of this year who brought me 3 very special gifts:

One is the gift of family – to be able to see the bond in spite of distance and being unique individuals

Second is the gift of being able to share joy – I realize that instead of drinking alone a bottle of wine, I can share it with others and make them feel that they matter. But this is not only for wine but for any other thing that I have, I did find a special joy knowing that I am not the only one who is happy. I cannot change the world but better changing something than nothing!

Third is the gift wisdom – I mean, being more patient, more understanding and more loving. Oh, I did realize that the art of loving is not that easy and not impossible to learn.

Wishing everyone a joyful and prosperous Year 2018!!!

Year 2017 brought me very special gifts.. Every year I prepare a fruit basket with 13 fruits as a family tradition to wish the family good luck for the coming year. This year’s fruit basket is like this:

Pineapple, mango, papaya,Lychees, apples, kiwi, Cantaloupe, passion fruit, avocado, grapes, pomegranates, mandarin, pears ☺️
