    • Letter to our baby Jesus Or about our Love for Virgin Mary

      It´s been dark outside, there were two flickering candles lit on the advent wreath and the radio played silently Christmas jazz. We were peacefully drawing snowmen at the table and talking about the Christmas time, the Advent, Saint Nicolas, baby Jesus and the festive d…

    • Evening star Even I will die

      I really wanted to sleep. It was a hot summer day and tiredness was taking over me. The kids were just falling asleep. All of a sudden, Kryštof appeared at my bedside. “Mom, can I?” he whispered. I nodded and he lay directly on me. He put his head on my breast a…

    • Child „lies“ Hidden fears and untold wishes*

      They went fishing for the first time. In the real ocean. Kryštof held the aquarium net firmly and moved with sure steps in the knee-deep water. He looked for the schools of fish and observed the slithering abalones. With glee he watched the scurrying crab and shared eve…

    • How to get a kid on a slope Start trying buddy!

      It was winter. Everything was covered in snow, the outside temperature below zero °C. The Lidice cabin in Pec pod Sněžkou was much cosier. The staff was used to children. The personnel joyfully jumped over the tiny bikers and will-o’-the-wisps, who were searching fo…

    • Tears of joy from butter Strong memories and small things

      It was good at grandma’s. Still now, tears blurred his vision when they recall her. The private flat, which used to fell safe and secure. He used to look forward to going there every Friday afternoon. After school, he got on a tram and he was at grandma’s in no time.…

    • An original Christmas present Give a memory and a thank you

      We received a “patron”, a “gift”. It was in the summer during a family trip with the kids. Our children, just like all the others, got a secret “patron”, who sent them a thank you note for something every single day. Every evening, before we went to sleep,…
