Tears for the loss of lives

It's horrible.

Who knew a terror attack like this would hit the city of Oslo & Utøya.

There are no words, not enough tears, that can ever express the unbearable pain and burden so many people are goin through at this very moment. The last couple of days, sick and terrible news have hit the norwegian people as well as the whole world, and caused a lot of impressions and emotions. This is a tragedy so unbearable, and its terrifying.

My thoughts and my prayers go to all the people who have lost their loved ones, to those who witnessed those horrible terror minutes, and to the heroes that risked their lives for others.

a Princess got her Prince.

These girls are so happy for them ..

so happy they almost believe its THeir day

but after a while the Princess & Prince arrive the red carpet

And its easy for them to steal the attention again

Singing " Your the prefect man for me "

they bring a lot of joy

& we enjoy every part of this special day


& good friends

This couple cannot wait to start the rest of their lives together !

Wish you all my luck, Kristine & Jon edvard :) .

Sometimes you experience stuff & after they happen you find it hard to explain the situation that occurred. Sometimes this is because it's so unbelievable. Sometimes you experience good luck, other times you have bad luck. Unbelievable bad luck isn't what we often prefer, but sometimes we face it, and sometimes in those situations you realize a thing or two.

Wilma, my beloved car, my lil sister & I decided to take a day trip to this summer festival, Skjærgårds Music & Mission festival. I've been there a couple of times before and it takes approximately 1 hour from my place to get there. well, I've never driven there myself, thats something new that I tried out. Yesss, well lets say that didn't go to well. 'Cause if you don't have a GPS, and you get five different, wrong, explanations of how to get there, and yellow pages give up on you cause they don't find the place that you're looking for , and you accidently find yourself in another's garden and get stuck with your car in a pit, and need help from the family that owns that garden for the next 30 minutes, & your car starts smelling burnt, and you find out you've been sitting in the car for three hours.. You might understand that this place wasn't so easy to find.. For me at least.

How is it even possible to get lost in a small country as Norway you may think . BUT I assure you, IT'S possible.

Luckily we ger there, at the same time as my best friend who drove a couple of hours later than I did. My lil sis and can't stop laughing when we arrive, but the very moment I step out of my car I find myself crying instead. When my emotions are under control & I'm able to speak, & we're finally at the place we're supposed to be - it starts to rain, heavy rain with lightening & thunder, and I've got no boots....

& I look up at the sky and think what's next ...

BUT strangely I sense a gratefulness grow inside of me as I realize my first lesson; when EVERYTHING that can possibly go wrong occurs to me - God remains my stronghold. God is my good thing when everything else is bad..

as the night goes I get to listen to Jimmy Needham an artist whom I love listen to. Often I sing his songs.

and closer to midnight I find myself under a cloudless, blue sky, in the midst of thousands of young people, my shoes covered by mud, havin a blast with my best friends, singing along to good music as Leeland enter the stage, worshipping God with lyrics like; I praise you in summer rain... & my second lesson dawns on me:

God has his own sense of humor.

- Boy 4, Biking around with a stick in his mouth.
- Me : You have to understand this is dangerous & this is a dirty stick, throw it away.

...Happening again ..

.. & again ...

- Me, stopping him third time: You gotta understand that we put food and drinks in our mouth, not dirty sticks, do you understand this ?

- Boy 4 : Yes, thank you. I appreciate your help .


Making rolls with the smallest kids

- Boy 2, putting the whole piece of dough into his mouth immediately.

Me : No, no, no. Look, can you do it this way ( showing him how to roll the piece of dough in his small hands ). You will hurt in your stomach if you eat more of this dough.

.. I sit down again, pleased, while all the kids continue to make something similar to rolls:) . Seconds later I look up and meet the very smart look to one particular boy that got his mouth filled with dough, smiling victoriously, and nothing more dough in his hands.


- Girl 5, letting out a burp while we have lunch, causing all the kids exploding & laughing their buts off, except one 4 year old boy who looks up with a serious face : But you ARE allowed to burp while you're eating if you really really REALLY have to, its not the same as when you're joking, cause if you're joking you are not allowed to burp when we sit and eat, thats what my mum says.


- The smallest kids, 1- 3 years old, are sometimes allowed to play in the area with the bigger kids, 3 - 5 years old , & most of these smallest kids love to meet their siblings if they also are in day care. Boy soon 3 is SO happy to be with the bigger kids, and he says to girl soon 3 : Did you SEE your baby brother !! ( who actually is closer to 5 )


- Girl 3 comes running: Hurry UP hurry up, they are stamping on the ants, you gotta stop them, they are not allowed - the ants are crying !!!!


The bad smell is not uncommon when most of these cute kids are wearing diapers & you often hear a grown up ask, Did you poo ? Well this time it happened to be a two year old boy that recognized this bad smell so he asks the woman beside him : Did you poo ???
