50/365:2013 ATC Liv

50-365 ATC 2013 Liv

I do not have many heroes / heroines. But one of the really big one is Liv Kyllingstad Godin.

I was lucky to have Liv working in the church where I grew up. She was there for a couple of years. One of the many stories she told me was how she met her husband. To be precise how he saw her for the first time. She was a missionary in Congo. She had been given the vaccine and was quite sick, but was driving home on a motorcycle. She was wearing a yellow blouse and yellow trousers. She did not feel well, yellow and green as she said. She remembered the day because she was sick, he remembered her as a yellow lightning bolt that came in full speed along the road.

Every time I see a young lady in yellow garments I think of Liv.

The girl is my self made stamp, original made for the 2011 diary project.

Norwegian:
Jeg har ikke mange helter/heltinner. Men en av de virkelig store i mitt liv er Liv Kyllingstad Godin.

Jeg var heldig å få ha Liv et par år i menigheten der jeg vokste opp. En av de mange historiene hun fortalte meg var om hvordan hun møtte sin mann. For å være helt presis hvordan han så henne for første gang. Hun var misjonær i Kongo. Hun hadde vært å fått vaksine og var ganske dårlig, men skulle kjøre hjem på en motorsykkel. Hun hadde på seg gul bluse og gul bukse. Hun følte seg ikke vel, gul og grønn som hun sa. Hun husket dagen fordi hun var dårlig, han husket henne som et gult lyn som kom i full fart lags veien.

Hver gang jeg ser en ung dame i gule gavanter tenker jeg på Liv.
