Dayenu – It Would Have Been Enough

If Chai4ever had only cleaned my house for Pesach, Dayenu.

If they had only sent delicious prepared meals to stock my freezer for Yom Tov, Dayenu.

If their volunteers had only taken my children shopping for Yom Tov outfits and shoes, Dayenu.

If their Big Brothers and Sisters had only taken my kids out to play, so my husband and I could get some rest, Dayenu.

If their social worker had only called us before Pesach to make sure we had everything we needed, reminding us that we are not alone in our ordeal, Dayenu.

If they had only sent perfect Afikoman presents to each of our children, making them feel cherished and special, Dayenu.

If they had only brought us on the perfect Chol Hamoed trip, where every single detail was taken care of, and our family had the best time ever, Dayenu.

How much more are we grateful to Chai4ever for always being at our side, from the moment we got the dreaded diagnosis, helping us navigate the twisted pathways of medical bureaucracy, giving us the strength to go on, and all the support we and our children need to come to terms with our frightening reality. You make us feel like a part of a community, rather than a lone family in a storm of fear. Thank you so much for everything that you do!
