August 31 - 2008 - Two years of blogging
You have learned to know me and my family and our pets and friends. In good times and in grief. The last 2 years.
What you all have meant to me by comments and private e-mails after my son Rubens sudden death can not be valuated with money and thanks alone. You gave me and my family strenght. To continue both life, work and relationships. You, me dear reader have helped me to think positive.
You know, I'm just back from the Hospital. I'm declared free from serious illnesses.
But, my thoughts now are with my Son and Daughter in Laws Mother in Michigan: She is seriously ill. Cancer - in a stage -¤#-%"- I say no more. God bless Gail. Let her live for many more years to come. She is a unique and wondeful, cultural giving person. She gave us all an unforgettable wedding for Mats and Lory in early August 2006.. (before I did start blogging). Not to forget all the concerts by South Michigan Symphony Orchestra which she gave me a free entrance to.
It would be very unpolite of me to here and now declare that some of you are more important for me than others during my 2 years as blogger.
But let me say this:
Renny was the one that not only once but repeately encourage me into this wonderful world.
I've met, beside Renny, two of you in person, flesh and blood: Mrs Lifecruiser and Suzann. And not to forget Diane - a wondeful person both of us learned to know the first second we first time met. And we have met many times and had much fun and good quality times together, also with her sons.
I've called and talked to The old Lady of the Hills (Naomi).
Gattina brought me into the world of Cat lovers. And with a very special sense of humor.
And - the one - that has invited us for a meeting next year in southern France, has inspired me to write and read French again ( I did visit France every year from 1964-1993)
And Lisa, who invited me for a lunch this August in Indianapolis area. I was so close, but had no chance when staying with my Son and DIL.
And all my friends in Canada, Asia and all over Europe, even in South America and Africa, not to forget Australia. And my family around the world.
I've written and got personal e-mails from so many of you my dear blogger friends, I'm flattered. And a bit ashamed - could be better to follow up. I'll do my best, when we are back in our Winterhome. In 5-6 weeks time.
Love you all. You have given me a new dimension.
Blog for peace and friendship
Anna and Tor ;))
Don't take life too serious. Be what you are. Self irony helps your health. Do what you can do and respect others, humans, animals, plants whatverer. Then you'll have a good and happy life.
Looking forward to meet you all, me dear readers, via blog, phone calls and in real life.
Thank you all for giving me (and Anna) a wonderful experience the past 2 years.
ooops - it's a never ending story. Right?
PS. I have not updated my blogroll for a long time. Excuse me for some of you that are my most trusted friends that are not still listed. I'll fix, early in my 3rd year as a blogger.
btw. Blogerfriends: I have learned so much from your blogs. An enrichment that can not be learned from any official publication.
I've even learned English and Spanish besides have had the ability to practice some French. My mother tongue is still Norwegian. So excuse my hahaha english and other linguistics
Bloggers: Let's rule the world, with peace and respect
