Tivoli Garden

Tivoli Garden
From the very start, Tivoli included a variety of attractions: buildings in the exotic style of an imaginary Orient: a theatre, band stands, restaurants and cafés, flower gardens, and mechanical amusement rides such as a merry-go-round and a primitive scenic railway. After dark, coloured lamps illuminated the gardens. On certain evenings, specially designed fireworks could be seen reflected in Tivoli's lake.

a big, big hug
I can understand your pain, as I also went through two miscarrigaes. I can only say keep trying: we were lucky the third time and now we have a healthy little girl who is 16 months old. I know it seems unfair and difficult to understand but time cures everything. I send you the big hug you need and think how lucky you are to have a wonderful husband.

my eyes are constantly wet
Please accept hugs from your friends in the ether. Life is a long road...so much is ahead...your heart and husband will carry you to the end. May it be a rewarding journey...fulfilling your dreams.

What can one say
Just to echo Cindy's comments - this was a very difficult blog to read, so it must be unbelievably painful to experience. It is easy for me to say "be positive" and that "the sun will still shine tomorrow" but I'm not living what you are living. Take your time before you make your decision to fall pregnant again - and may you be granted strength to take you along that path when the decision is made. Your husband seems a wonderful guy, I would love to shake his hand, but only after I've given you the hug you need.

Sending you the biggest hug
Wow..im so so sorry. Your blog is the most gut wrenchingly honest sad and bittersweet I have ever read. I dont know what more to say, other than thank you for opening your heart to us, bless your little angels. Your wonderful husband is lucky to have you to hold. Wishing you brighter times ahead, your spirit is amazing.

Great photos!
This is so much better than the corny, holding-up the tower ones--good show! And yes, I like Sienna best of those three one, but aren't they all gorgeous!

I agree!
"If you have nothing to be grateful for, check your pulse"... I'm not sure who said this, but it's so true!

A glimpse into the lives of our customers ...
... so often it is simply amazing to be able to dip into the lives of people that we only meet for just very few hours. We've dipped into yours and you've changed ours. Many of our staff remember you, and we are all thinking of you.

you are a brave woman!
Your last two blogs brought tears to my eyes, but also a feeling of admiration at how brave you are. I know what you are going through as I had two miscarriages before our daughter Ella was born a year ago... it's tough but, unfortunately, these things happen to more women than people realise, but just because it happened once (or twice in my case) doesn't mean you won't be able to have a healthy baby, just keep trying!... trying is the fun part anyway!! ;) On another note, great photos!

thank you for your kind word... so sorry for your 2 miscarriages. this particular trip is dedicated in memory of baby A, so unfortunately there will be several more of sad theme blogs

Travel blog brings us together
We've been reading your blogs for some time now and are so sad to hear of the loss you are experiencing. Hopefully the healing will begin but you'll never forget what could have been. Life presents challenges that we do not understand. Blues skies will come your way again. Please know we are sending you a hug.

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your baby girl...
and thanks for sharing your grief with your TB family. We weren't able to have children, and then after 13 years of marriage we had a little girl...then another...then a boy. We will pray that God answers your prayers for a baby...in our case the answers took some time.

thanks Bob & Linda... wow 13 years... must be tough... I'm happy that you have 2 children now, never forget to cherish your time with them :)

Thank You for Sharing!
I was just logging in to my TravelBlog and your title caught my eye on my homepage. I have always thought that is such a personal question to ask someone. "Do you have any kids? Why not? When are you going to start having children?" So invasive for a stranger, or even mother-in-law, cousin, or random family member to ask! Maybe it only feels invasive to people who have a difficult history with pregnancy, or maybe even those who are blessed to have children with no complications even feel it's inappropriateness. At any rate, as a nurse, and as someone who also has a difficult history, I am very sorry that you had to endure that experience! And I commend you for sharing that here! Sometimes it's nice to know that you are not the only one in the world who has to suffer the loss of a dream. Nothing will ever erase your pain, but I hope this trip will bring you healing and hope!

thanks Launie... well unfortunately in Asian culture, such questions are common. I guess I just need to let all of my feelings out, hence I'm being sincere in my blog. I hope that helps someone out there.
5th January 2014

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. I agree, sometimes things happen that make us question what we believe in, but I do hope that it will turn around with you eventually, if not soon. But I'm glad that you're finally able to smile now. Best wishes!

thanks Jay... yeah from time to time I'm able to smile although not as long as it used to
