Screenshot of Nadine and me in Arvika Library. Just reunited IRL. With little brother Mika and Karin, Sofa Corner in our Casa. Now, all fine, all here, all as it should be, all is alright. Eleven days ahead, Nadine here. Yay! Breathe in. Breathe out. Good Night!
Father’s Day, 2016. Love is. We are. #MikaTheHero ♡ And on phone tonight, in a physical distance, but not in spirit – #NadineTheHeroine. ♡. Always around – #SotoTheCat #UchiTheCat #DeshiTheCat ♡. I LOVE YOU beyond the universe, in a place, beyond space and time. The Love Force – from where we came, in what we feel, from what we fuel, to where we go. We haz it! A bond, by this Force, unbreakable! Period. — Photo by Karin #AkroMom @akrogirl ♡
Only me and the cats here, IRL, in our home today. But in distance, phonetalks with friends, conversations on stuff that really matters on FB webs, and chats with text, voice, images and video with family distributed, making solitude and ‘longiness’ (longing in loneliness) something manageable to carry! Longing for my full family to be in our house again! Mika and Mommy Karin back tomorrow, Nadine here next time Dec 29! I intend to blog on some findings I did today, for tomorrow, related to things that happenened Friday and that happens on Tuesday. And BTW … no TV today!…
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!
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…
Mika and Nadine, today. Playing together in the part of our living room defined as the Playroom. Last day, this time, of a week spent with my daughter. Tomorrow we go to Arvika, where her other family picks her up to go to her other home, in Eidsvoll, Norway. It’s so wonderful to see the pride and love that Nadine has when being with Mika. They have connected deeper every time they have had these weeks. Xmas, Easter, Summer Holidays. I hope, and wish, that we get to a better life situation, all of us, so we can increase the…
These days – thankful for every smile and laugh I can share with my Mika. Where the rest of my life will go is still very unwritten, but two things are crystal clear. I have meaning with my kids, my family, our little bubble of a world. I have meaning in love in its expressions as they manifest in the flow of my life. Thank you life, for giving me these!
Idag åkte jag tillbaka med Nadine för att lämna henne till mamman i Arvika, för vidare transport till Eidsvoll. Det gör lika ont varje gång att skiljas åt. Till nästa gång, älskling, ha det så bra du kan! Jag saknar dig stenhårt redan!
Idag var vi på öppna förskolan med Mika och Nadine gjorde sällskap. Vi lekte någon timme och Mika socialiserade litegrann med andra bebisar. Nadine visade sig vara en riktig bebismagnet och fick mycket kärlek! En fin dag som fortsatte med fika på stan och en film på kvällen med påskgodis. Vi åt även äggmackor som vi gjorde på våra marmorerade nagellacksägg! Imorgon åker Nadine tillbaks till Eidsvoll för denna gången, så det var sista kvällen detta påsklovet. Jag kommer dundersakna henne!
Här är de, i söndagslugnet. Dotter, son, älskade. Och någonstans i huset, tre katter. Kärlek!
Picking up Na in Arvika. Here, at Glafsfjorden. I love her.
