Israela is a story of three women and their loved ones torn apart in a country at war. It is about love, secrets and betrayal; but also about hope and heroism, about Arab..

" March 19, 1953 ~ 2005 "


This is the nightits 7 o clock

Some odd fifty years ago

When mom gave birth

To a very tiny 3 pound baby girl

O Where did I go wrong

O Where have you been

All those times I needed you so

I am walking this road alone for so long

This is the night

I was thinking about you twice

Aint that nice

You may think this is strange

But those who have been there

Know what pain I had to endure

To keep my head high for fifty odd years

With a pure heart I missed my mark

But with the help of God

And the love of my sunshine

I can face this day just okay

But if I miss my mark today

Trying to guide

My ship of happiness your way

In my mind

Forever burning

The question

Where did I go wrong?

Some odd fifty years ago

For me to still feel the pain

Like my mom did giving birth

To this tiny thing called

Me Tinky

Happy Birthday, Tinka. What a great picture and what a great write. It is so amazing that 50 years ago a child so small could have survived. Your will and spirit must have been strong, even back then.
Take care,

Happy Birthday Tinka!! Did you know that you are a miracle? Back then, it was God's grace that saved a teeny one like you. And every year is just another reminder of how much He loves you. Have a great day, I almost missed it!! Kick up your heels, girlfriend...

:) And lucky for us she did give birth to a 'tiny tinky'. You are worth every day of those fifty years, Tinka. Pain is lingering, but living life defeats its power over its fears, and creates strength of spirit, a compassionate nature, a soul-shine and a love for cookies, um, I mean sunrises, which sustains our hearts, minds and spirits.

Funny, at the store, an hour ago, I bought two bags of low-carb. brownie mixes that were discontinued for sale. After, and if, the girls help me clean the kitchen, we will bake one up, and I will toast your birthday with a 'cookie facsimile', and a smile.

Yours in friendship,

Tinka, we share a birthday! Mine's today, March 19, too!

I hope your day is full of fun, laughter, joy and love because YOU deserve it!


Reviewed by Felix Perry
Very reflective work on why we are and who we are today. Sometimes we never find the answer but learn to accept the wonders and beauty that we do see in out lives. I was born but a year before you so perhaps that explains our mutual understanding in verse. Nice work Tinka and a precious treasured picture you share with us.
