Soto Two Years – HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY! <3 | #blog101 #SotoTheCat #LoveDeclaration

Soto might be the most perfect family cat ever. She came when she was needed the most in our family. Just some few days before we got to know the diagnosis of Mika’s heart disease during the pregnancy. She helped us cope through those days. And, well, since then, I could count so many times and events, and share so many traits, that makes her just that – The Family Cat! Of course, Uchi and Deshi are perfect family cats as well – three very distinct personalities, helping us out in the highs and lows. I do not have the…

This Calling Began with My Daughter Singing “We Are The World” … | #blog101 #MyFamily #MikaTheHero #NadineTheHeroine #Music4Health #PhotoLog

… “We Are The Children” ! Truly! Good Night! (And the storytelling beginning last week continues another Tuesday.) Thank you Karin ♡♡♡♡♡ for capturing the Magic, Beautiful and Love-Worthy! A day of STRONG relief – at the visit with Dr Fernlund, the Heart Doctor – with a 70-30 something of keeping Mika’s pacemaker as-is! Deep breathing out of relief! Now. Sleep!

Visiting Anders Sporring in Märsta | #blog366 #Friends

Today we visited Anders Sporring in Märsta. Long time no see! We had a great full day, and made a dinner together. A great reconnect with love and warmth. Anders is my brother from another mother, and Mika’s fadder. Hope to see you again soon! We love you!

Closing a Circle – Ending a NadineWeek | #blog366 #photolog #NadineTheHeroine

Today. Leaving Nadine. From Norrköping to Arvika, then mother with her guy behind the wheel by car to her Norwegian home in Eidsvoll. Here, last leg – the regional train from Kristinehamn to Arvika, just before the arrival. A sad moment of separation. Last Saturday. The reverse. A happy reunion. Getting her from Arvika to Norrköping, here in the travelling to her Swedish home.  Soon again, we hope! Miss you already, Mika’s big sister! Until next time, be well, and hope you get a good last part of your Summer’s School’s Out! I love you unconditionally, #NadineTheHeroine!

W as in World, RE:LOVED | #blog26 #wishlist

The name of this blog – and my personal tagline/vision/mantra/force/motivation – is RE:LOVE THE WORLD. The About Page tells you what this means – “a world, re:loved, is a world where you meet your fellow human being with love and respect, and can expect to be met with the same”. The stream of news last days/months/years can makes your heart dark. But – if we leave all terror and alarmism in the press, the world, in fact, is getting better! There, graphs, presented in conjunction with prof Steven Pinker article in The Guardian – also, check Hans Rosling, always! – a TED…

L as in Loved Ones | #blog26 #wishlist

Let’s start off with some here-and-now pics. We are in Valdemarsvik for the weekend, arrived today with the full family, cats included. What we do and what happens – follow Karin on Instagram (@akrogirl)! I am sitting on the second floor of Karin’s mum’s lovely house. The Tablet shines. I have a little remote keyboard connected to it. Mindmapped where to take this posting. Directions. Loved ones! Yes. Family! But, before that – let’s make a little historical odyssey. All You Need Is Love – “it was 49 years ago today” Sgt. Pepper told the band to play! And, they…
