For my thinking.


Merin, I miss you. And as I pace the hall in the middle of the night trying to calm our little Ysa, to lul her back to sleep I can't help but wonder if I'm doing as you would. What am I doing wrong that I can't get her to sleep in the night? What should I do? How would you do it? How I wish you were here, or at least you could tell me what I should do. She is such a happy baby that when she cries it tears at my heart. I'm tying to be strong. For you, for me, for my family. Its just so hard some times.

It is heartbreaking to hear a little baby cry! Nights can be so long with our little ones. Ysa is healthy and happy in your home, and she will settle into a good routine soon, I'm sure. The pictures you've taken of her and Merin are priceless.

Nights with a baby are so hard, I continually second guess myself everyday about what to do in the night. I am sure Ysa can feel your love for her and that is all that matters for know!

My dear Eden:

Don't doubt yourself sweetie. Youknow what you are doing. Just take a look on the faces of your other two children; so happy and full of joy. With you as a mom, Ysa will definately turn out the same way.

You are doing fine. It will all work out. I know it seems like forever when you are in the middle of these sleepless nights but they are over soon. She is doing so very well in every important way. She will learn to sleep as well. You are a wonderful mother. I am so proud of you.

The pictures are beautiful.

I'm sure Merin would be doing the same things you are doing with Ysa at night - and day. I bet she would be the one asking you the same questions. I think we all get more help from the other side than we recognize. You are incredible, Eden. I mean it. Someone told me today - "the answers are there." The answers are there to be found. That helped me so much! Good luck with the sleep - it's a tricky one.

Night times are hard. I used to say to myself, "just make it till 7:00 am" Things are so much easier in the light. In those moments in the night, when things are the hardest, know that there are angels guiding you and people praying for you.

On a somewhat side note I should tell you, that you are an example of patience and love. How you care for your children is amazing however hard it may be.

I adore how you keep calling her "our little Ysa"...she is so blessed to have her mommy in heaven and her mommy right here to cuddle and hold her. She is certainly loved.

Eden - you have been through so much. You're so strong and doing so much good for so many people. Thank you for being an example of stead-fastness. My fingers are crossed that the sleep will come, along with peace and comfort. Lots of love to you!

Does it help at all to know that I think you are AMAZING? I'm sorry you're having a difficult time at night - that's so hard. Ysa is so blessed to have you to hang out with at night time. :) I hope she sleeps for you soon - do you need ANYTHING!?

You are a rock Eden. Nights inevitably are the hardest especially when you're pacing the halls and every lonely, sad thought can weigh, at the very least, twice as heavy. I hope it will lighten your load even a little to know that many of us pray for you and Ysa (and your family ofcourse) every night BEFORE the pacing begins. You are not alone. Merin could never find anyone more perfectly suited to care for Ysa than you. No one.

Is It Time To Find A New Career The resume processing system does the work of selecting the resumes and makes changes in necessary format. Have you ever wondered the importance of knowing how to write a cover letter for a resume. Another segment that is now most popular is the construction business as so many malls and complexes are coming up in Dubai. If you are looking ahead to build some extra income then the best available option is part time jobs.
