Notes for the Kotel

For those of you who somehow missed this detail, I'm leaving for Israel tomorrow.

Next Friday I'll be at the Kotel, the Western Wall. It's customary for people to leave notes in the cracks between the stones, asking for their most important desires. I was there last year and spent a good amount of time praying for all the women I knew at the time who were trying to conceive.

So here's the deal:
1. If you would like me to pray for you at the Kotel, either leave me a comment or email me at sara "at" wlualumni "dot" ca to let me know.
2. If you want to write a note for me to put in the wall, you can email it to me at the above address. I will print it and put it in the wall when I go there. If you want to be sure that I won't read your note, put "A note for the kotel" in the subject line.

Notes and requests need to reach me by this Saturday night at the latest. After that I'm not sure that I'll be able to get to my email in time.

I'll be updating my blog sporadically, when I manage to get to an internet cafe. And of course, I'll be blogging until tomorrow morning.

Just clicked here through the virtual lushary...

That's fantastic - have a wonderful trip.

And I don't know you well enough to ask you to pray for me, so I won't. I hope that your prayers there are listened to and answered though...

What a beautiful thing to offer to do. I hope you don't find me too forward to ask, but I have no idea when I'll see the Kotel in person (if ever) - I'll email my note to you directly and if you could leave it for me, I would be so grateful.

Anyway, have a fantastic trip!!! I cant' wait to see pics!!!!!

I have a wish. I hope that you go to the Kotel and your prayers are answered. That this IUI has worked and you will bring home a baby.

And I might just send you a note of my own.

Have a great trip, Sara. I will see you when you get back.

Of course, right after I send you that email, I click over to your blog and see this :-) You are awesome. I'm sending you a note from me and adding this to the blog roundup.

Have a safe trip!

I hope you have a fantastic trip. When i was at the Kotel years ago i was too shy to do it myself. I will email you a note and i greatly appreciate you placing it for me.

God bless.

Have a wonderful trip! I don't know you well either, but think what your doing is awesome!

My prayer is that your's and all the other's ttc will have their prayers answered!!

Just wanted to say hubby and I did the same thing two years ago. Only, being Roman Catholics, we went to Italy (at the Pope's passing). And, there I prayed for my child. I recieved my miracle after nearly 3 years of ttc!!

((((HUGS)))) To all!

Hi There, I found your blog through Town Criers and wanted to say that I think that this is such a beautiful thing that you are doing. Knowing that there are people in the world thinking so much of others puts a smile on my face.

Hope that you have a great trip and I'll be thinking about you.
