A Meeting Place for Early loss twins

This is really my twin's Enjy's place, not mine. S/He does not have any other place in this world. S/He was miscarried at age four months in the womb. We were twins and made to be together for years and we were torn apart within seconds. This is the place where I go to talk to him/her and about him/her. Anyone who has lost a twin in utero or very early is very welcome here to read and share.

Your Christmas Gift

I was walking the Christmas Market looking for some presents. Christmas Markets in Germany are neat. The sound of age-old carols wafting through the air combined with the smell of wafers and cinnamon and spiced wine. Stands selling christmas decoration, artsy-craftsy things as well as jewelry, handmade candles, toys or sweets, fries&sausage or anything you name. I was looking for a present my twin could have given me. I already had one I would give to him.
I ended up in front of a stand selling rings and other jewelry, stainless steel and pearls and feathers. I put out my hand and lifted up a ring, touched it, tried it. It fitted my finger perfectly. It had a four-leaved clover engraved and the words "Be Happy".
So, this it was, your gift to me. To wear it always, to remind me that you do not want me unhappy or feeling sorry for myself, or for us.
And it's ever so often I catch myself thinking "Enjy would like me to do that".
Because you want me to be happy.


  1. Wow! This is awesome! I like the message on the ring - 'BE HAPPY.' It was a great idea to look for a gift that you think your twin would have given you. I am going to try this when I go Christmas shopping this year. Janine and I always enjoyed our annual Christmas shopping trips whether to Kingston, Jamaica's capital or Ocho Rios, a popular tourist resort in the neighbouring parish of St. Ann.

  2. Angela,
    The site looks very nice! What a great idea. I wish you every success with it. I read your review of the book about "Sam" and it sounded very interesting. I wish I had unlimited time to read everything I would like. But i will get to it eventually.

    Best wishes.
