Turning Loss into Love: The Embeth Project

--by petroskryf, posted Mar 28, 2018
I pondered for a long while about this, and I decided to ask your contribution …

On March 30 our gifted daughter should have celebrated her 21st birthday.

A day that was supposed to be full of fun and festivities, will be a very lonely day for me and her dad. No birthday cake. No special present. No looking forward to a bright future ahead. Because she passed away when she was only 13. A butterfly who wasn’t able to spread her fragile wings.

It’s easy to feel sorry for yourself. Instead, I decided to ask people to do kind deeds in her name. I call it the Embeth Project, in commemoration of this beautiful soul who crossed my life.

In the following days up to March 30, please consider to dedicate an opportunity for a kind deed to Embeth …. and please keep me posted about it if you feel like doing so. 

*In December this year, my husband and I plan to visit the US again. It’s our way to be kind to ourselves, to have something to look forward to. And Embeth always ‘’travels’’ with us. Her dad wears her pink cap, I wear her favorite scarf (with the skulls, so not my style) around my neck.

Thank you for considering this – I am sure Embeth is already smiling in her corner of the universe.

He needs embeth's angel to help him at this difficult time. Blessings to you and yours!
