there are so many facets of who you are… too many to list on a card, or a page. a sometimes delicate flower, as i say, and at other times, tough as nails. sometimes stoic, as a good norwegian girl should be, and sometimes open and tender, with a sort of fragile beauty. a fragile beauty that really goes beyond the tough parts of you. actually makes the tough parts of you even tougher. one of the many mysteries of you, mare.

the parts of you that love your Creator. those that love jonathan and maggie, with a sometimes fierce love, a sometimes playful love. the driven intensity that moves you through your days, and the quiet caring that softens the intensity to an endearing beauty.

i am so grateful for the many and different facets of your beauty. the simplicity and yet the mystery of all you are. thank you for being the mother of our children. happy mother’s day. i love you.
