International womens day

The International Women's Day Centenary should make the women of past proud, the women of current inspired, and the women of the future envisioned (from IWD website).

Big day for women around the world who can be remembered for what they have done and who they have been to their family, friends and communities. From different backgrounds and orientations around the world, with different achievements to celebrate and different challenges to face (AIDS infected or affected, hunger, rape,violence, discrimination, cultural limitations among others)...others come out stronger but others never make it.But each day as we look towards the future ahead we have hope inside. One thing is for sure, what we do for ourselves goes with us to the grave but what we do for others, lives beyond us.

We can live to our full potential as we match on with hearts courageous. Not forgetting to celebrate each other. we can contribute positively to make the family a better place which will in turn impact the community and the world. we can encourage each other, hold each others hand, love others and have a hope that never dies.

kollektive weekend



Isaiah, johanne and Ruth








Another weekend out in the forest, this time at Bærum, haslumseter. Quite similar to nordmarka, since you ski to get there in winter or walk during other seasons. this being winter, we went skiing.
Kollektive is the name given to the group of people who stay where I live(at laget houses). we always have meeting every second Tuesday of the month. This time we had a weekeknd out together. It was good time to interact more, go skiing, watch a movie together, play games and share meals among others..what a fantastic way to build a team.
It was so interesting to experience the love and fellowship, especially when the skiing got challenging for me to go the uphills but they stayed with me until the end.'Loving your neighbour'
