LÍF & MAGGI
Líf Steinunn and Maggi are parents who have completely taken on the task of life with great fanfare.
When we walked into Líf and Magga’s apartment, it was like walking into one of Manhattan’s most beautiful apartments. Quite different than we would expect in Iceland and wow what fun it was. The couple’s apartment truly reflects the warmth that lives in their hearts and it was great to get to know them and be able to make them happy with a beautiful Míubox.
It is absolutely amazing to listen to the stories of parents of chronically ill children. All so strong, all so amazing but at the same time you can see in their eyes exactly what they are experiencing. Maybe because we know we have to fight for our children and we know what it’s like to have a chronically ill child, but at the same time we want to take away all these difficult memories, all this unbearable pain and put a few drops of joy back in beautiful the eyes of all those we talk to.
At the same time, however, one sees a twinkle in the eye of those we do not see in those who have had to experience these things with their children. It’s something you do not want to take away or scatter joy to hide because it is a twinkle in the eye that shows you strength, resilience and how amazing they are. Líf and Maggi have this and WOW it is impossible to describe how amazing individuals they are both individually and together.
Their card from Mia Magic said that they must remember to hug each other every day. I would like to remind the rest of you about that too and in fact just everyone. Hug your spouse and children every day. Kisses do so much and say so much. A connection you can only get with a good kiss.
We would like to send Líf and Magga a heartfelt thank you for receiving us, the coffee and refreshments and an extra big thank you for telling us their story. It is always possible to take something good with you to improve yourself after a visit from people like that couple. Good luck with everything you are tackling and extra kisses on your springs. What they are brave and cool like their parents.
