I´ve been unbelievably lucky with my mum. Many of you have met her. You´ve experienced her friendly smile, calm unstressed manner, and exceptional warmth. Growing up she always believed and trusted that my brother and I would make the right choices. We never heard an “I told you so” when we didn´t. And we often did not!
She devoted her time to helping me start Susan Fosse. Skillfully and patiently sewing together the sweaters that I had knitted, perfectly finishing every garment. For two decades my mum has helped me sell our products from Bergen Market and in our shop at Bryggen. She´s loved meeting you all, working outside in all sorts of weather conditions on The Market. Hanging on to the stand for dear life in extreme wind. Always with a smile.
Her love and interest in people and the time she is willing to give to others has always impressed me. She has all the time in the world to listen to people and help where she can. I love her attention to enjoying the moment and not rush on to deal with the next pressing thing.
However, I know at times I take her for granted. I forget to stop and listen to her and to consider her needs. We need to take care of our mums. We need to cherish our time with them – to feel their care and warmth.
Thanks mum! ❤️
