“I wish for you and your close ones…”

We have somewhat foreseen the problems with sending Martha’s wishes for the family and people close.
Simply, after those few years we don’t expect anything good from Irish prison Service.
(Of course if something good will happen, we will acknowledge that and we will thank for it)

Foreseeing it, we’ve asked Martha to make a list of people to which she sends letters, right after sending.
Now we publish Martha’s list.

“I am with you with all my heart, I love everyone, I miss you …” – wishes from Marta

Marta really wanted to get an extra phone today, but it failed.
So she called her mother with wishes.
Later she made a phone call to her sister.
Unfortunately, she could not make any additional phone anymore.
She really wanted to call her friends.
She asked for the best wishes from her.
For everyone.
But especially for her closest friends and their families:
for Kasia, for Mariusz, for Rafał, for Krysia, for Tomasz.
She is with everyone.
Thoughts about everyone.
She imagine everyone sitting with their families at Christmas Eve tables.

“I am with you with all my heart.
I love everyone.
I miss you.
Thank you for your support.
I wish you true love and warmth.
And health, because health is the most important. “

And Marta herself:
it’s a holiday today:
the block is closed earlier.
Candy is waiting for Marta, waiting for coffee and popcorn.
Yesterday, Marta sewed her pants for the first time.
Denim jeans.
Tomorrow will shorten them and walk in them …

Mum and sister visit Martha (pt. 2)- 23rd of October 2018 – Martha receives International Red Cross Volunteer Certificate

“Tuesday was the day, when first two hours we’ve spent hugging, as always, and talking on endless subjects…

Next entry to the visiting room started with welcoming by mrs Governor of all present people, between which were teachers and  representatives of International Red Cross Organization.
The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the idea of promoting and work of the organization, and a first aid demonstration by Martha and another woman.
On this meeting, certificates were given to four women, as International Volunteers of Red Cross, including Martha.

Next was a surprise – a performance of women, who sang 3 songs with a guitar. This was them most touching element to us…
Tears were streaming down… when we heard the words abount a sister, mum, and that “someday I will fly from here…”
At the mere memory of it, our eyes get wet from emotions…

Next there were congratulations, thanks, hugs, words of encouragement for the future…
And a nice last part – coffee drunk together, with a cake.
We’ve given our portions to Martha, so she can have something sweet for later… because what else could we do…
Then hard parting… So many feelings, still to little of time spent together, to little, to short…

This was our last meeting, almost torn hands and hearts…
When will we meet again??? We don’t know…”

Mum and sister visit Martha – from 21st to 23rd of October 2018 – part 1.

“Visiting Marttha: 21st of October – 23rd of October 2018

Meeting on sunday, after few months (since April) started with tears of emotion. Feelings took us over so much, that only thing we could do was to swallow bitter tears, without the possibility to say a word…
We’ve only looked at Martha, and she looked at us, and we held our hands tight together…
After some time we started talking.
And so, not knowing when, the visit time passed.

On the next day, we were full of enthusiasm from the possibility of meeting, so the time passed even quicker, full of mixed emotions, from joy, through helplessness, anger, sadness…”

Martha’s grandmother died today – “She was my last grandma”

Today, June 21, 2018, at 2 p.m., Martha’s grandmother died.
She died at home in Poland, living to an age of 101 years.
She was missing 2 months to 102 years.

Martha learned about that from her sister via telephone call.
Both sisters were silent, not knowing what to say…
The grandma was very liked…
Both sisters owe her a lot…

Martha asked to buy a candle on her behalf, and to put it on the grandma’s grave…

“She was my last grandma…”
