She did not fail to thank her dear husband Morten Foght for constantly pushing her and for giving her reasons to continue, even when she doesn’t want to continue.
2017… God knows I wouldn’t have been able to push as hard as I did if not for Ma B @mortenfoght even when things got so hard and sometimes i don’t want to continue his constant push and looking at how he does his things inspires me and reminds me that giving up isn’t an option after coming this far… God will bless this man for never giving up on me, always believing I can be better, for always trusting me even when I make no sense, for always ready to risk it all to bring this dreams to life, for always supporting, motivating and encouraging me to let go and just trust I can fly, for the never ending push to get me out of my comfort zone and brave my storms … Too many times I just wanted to give up but he keeps showing me reasons why that isn’t an option…. One day we shall tell you our story, the battles we have had to fight, been such a crazy ass journey mennnnnnnnnn but he always tries to make me work harder to be better than I was yesterday and I feel thank you is so small! But am certain GOD will rain BLESSINGS upon BLESSINGS on him and he will Favour him in all his endeavors and grant him all that his heart desires… JEG ELSKER DIG MORTEN ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #jegelskerdig #mab #thefoghts #godgatus #wastoughbutwesurvived #productsofgrace #grateful #thankful
