Toast to the New Year

Postby michal » Wed Dec 24, 2003 08:19 am

Hi ladies

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 I’d like to say,
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived ok.

I’m writing this from Heaven, where I dwell with God above,
where there are no more tears or sadness, there’s just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy, just because I’m out of sight.
Remember that I’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, “I welcome you.
It’s good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they’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 wouldn’t understand.

But one thing is for certain, though our lives on Earth are o’re,
I am closer to you now, than I ever was before.

And to my very many friends, trust God knows what is best.
I’m still not far away from you, I’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 I’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 who’s in sorrow or in pain,
then you can say to God at night, my day was not in vain.
