I would like to wish you all a warm and hopeful Christmas and New Year .I hope that the New Year will bring better omens than the previous one , and fulfilled dreams to you all .
I found this poem that offers me some comfort when I think about my daughter, Dina . I hope it offers comfort to all those that share with me the pain of losing a child .
Mom to Tali ( 5/3/1998,PE and HELLP 32 weeks) , mom to my first angel in heaven ( 20/2/2002 , PE and HELLP 20 weeks ) , mom to Dina Chaya Hodaya ( 29/10/2003 - 4/11/2003 , PE and HELLP 25 weeks )
Some things IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to say,
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived ok.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m writing this from Heaven, where I dwell with God above,
where there are no more tears or sadness, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy, just because IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m out of sight.
Remember that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you, when my life on Earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me, and said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I welcome you.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be here later on.
I need you here so badly, as part of my big plan."
I wish that I could tell you, of all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand.
But one thing is for certain, though our lives on Earth are oÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re,
I am closer to you now, than I ever was before.
And to my very many friends, trust God knows what is best.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m still not far away from you, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m just beyond the crest.
There are rocky roads ahead of you, and many hills to climb,
but together we can do it, taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like it for you too,
that as you give unto the world, so the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in sorrow or in pain,
then you can say to God at night, my day was not in vain.
