Munga tusen tak…


my mom says this little phrase means “many thousand thanks” or “thanks very much” in Norse. 

So I say to you all “munga tusen tak”.

A thousand thanks for all the prayers and emails and phone calls and visits and treats and kid watching and and and…

The first week is over, and it was made bearable by your support. 

I can’t begin to name each and everyone, (it’s like an Oscar speech), but I am going to try.

Thank you:

Wendy, Jen, Cathy, Jim, Annie, Alex, Craig, Roy, Lynda, Linda, Gloria, Don, Tod, Carrie,Laura, Barb, Layne, Kathie, Mom, Dad, Roy, Carol, Lucy, Bryan, Denny, Kenny, Carol, Mirelia, Joy, Brad, Jean, Lisa, Ann-Britt, Phil, Candy, Sheryl, Arlene, Bob, Dave, Joy, Lynn, Roland, Brenda, Becky, Janet, Sandy, Shawn, Ashley, Quincy,  Layne, Sheeba, Gloria, Nancy, Lawrence, Justine, Michael, Laura, Emily, Pam, Meredith, Dennis, Hans, Lili, Roy, Dorothy, Verlie, Valoris, Michelle, Nancy, Trudy, Lowell, Deb, Debby, Elrene, Kris, Ken, Anna, Kathleen, Cherie, Doug, Rachel, Doug, Jason, Julie, Jim, Erich, Margie, Jessica, Melissa, Leora, Irwin, Mark, Paul, Paul, Dave, Megan, Kim, Dan, Christmas, Fuller, Howard, Edy, Dawn, Joel, Bob, April, Harry, Cherie, Julia, Butch, Theresa, St. Pauls Lutheran, Arbor Covenant, Mat-Su Covenant, Plymouth Covenant, Dale Heights Presbyterian, churches from Alaska to Mexico to Tennesee, countless people I have never met have been in prayer for us.

About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.

  1. One way that I’ve tried to explain you to people is to say that there are probably 20 people who call you one of their 5 closest friends. Perhaps the number is higher. I think one of the reasons is your thankful attitude.

    Perhaps your experience going through this will rub off on us and change us all for the better (because, of course, we don’t want to have to go through this experience ourselves).
