I started this post about three times by now and I still cannot really express myself, so I think it might be the best just to say it factually. This morning, while we were all gone to work, the house that we live in was robbed. The whole ground floor was turned upside-down, inside-out, many valuable things taken. The only thing that separated us from all this is a few stairs and a door that we never lock. That's all. And yet, by some weird twist of fortune, they did not pay us a visit. My hands are still a bit shaky, but I feel really thankful and calm inside my head. There are many bad people in the world and they do bad things, but we were spared and that is truly something to be thankful for. So thank you, whoever you are, for watching over us.
