A Special Gift


I am probably one of the few people for whom 2020 was not a horrible year. Needless to say, I, too could have done without the permanent threat of catching a potentially deadly virus and the side-effects that came with it, such as minimal personal interaction with friends and family, spending way too many hours in video conferences, not being able to travel and enjoy activities I used to take for granted in the past...
2020 was a special gift for me as it brought me even closer to Highflyer and proved that spending 24/7 together for months without a single argument or disagreement is indeed possible if you share unconditional love and respect for each other. This past year was slow-paced, but eventful, uncertain, but secure, stationary in terms of location, but so full of growth and learning. 
A surprise proposal on a seemingly "random" evening walk back in May would be an obvious highlight of this year, but it was just the icing on the cake, or rather the red ribbon on this gift of a year, to stay with the metaphor.
I will forever be grateful that this crazy year allowed us to spend so much time together, discover so much about ourselves and about each other, and to rediscover the joy of some old hobbies. 2020, you were a tough one, but I owe you a lot.
