A feeling raised, that I want to ouner the poeple, that thier pressent in my life make it as it is: rich, beutiful, spiecal, with wisdom, with jow and pain, with spirit love, connection and carring
This gif of life, being alive and in exchenge with all- I want to ouner in a Ritual:
ounering by saying Thank you - Gratitude.

You have riched my life. Tresurs of Moments of sharring, exchanging... ist all the richness of my life.

Karen, you gave me the grace to accompany you in time off giving birth; The waitting, to be the first one who see you after giving birth, to see your eyes loooking at your baby, very spiecal Moments form e and a big honor. Than to help Ludvig a littel with the children, with cleaning the house, as it was to much for him. I kneu that this way you could feel relax a littel, becouse your family getting support.
I feel very privilege, to be with you in those days, to be near, to give a hand. So thank you of allowing me to do some goods on earth, and thank you for your trust and sharring.
Through your extreem life situation and unusual Health story, all the situations by you and the children, this burden showed me oft proportion to my own difficulties, as if god showing me; thier are poeple who are realy haveing it hard. Tt gave me a neu perspective to my situation, which gave me a feeling of lightness and gratitude to my situations. My problems became very small. I felt very blessed and happy with what I have, on one hand, at the other, big respect how you deal with your life challenges, the power to go though so much pain, so many tasks.
Tob e a witness o fit, I am graitfull. Ist teaching me about strenth, not giving up, keeping on. Thank you Karen.
