Happy Birthday and Shana Tova on Rosh Hashona, not Yom Kippur. We met as we broke the fast and you were secretly not celebrating your birthday. Today Ami and Adi are celebrating their 10th anniversary. So much reason to celebrate and yet, you aren’t here with us to read my card and plan where we eat dinner for a quiet, no fuss celebration.
Instead I’ll be preparing dinner from Michael and Jane and maybe Christine and sharing the newest video I revised on Saturday. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you, sharing your story.
And if they can watch more, I will share this one, the one I created for your celebration last year, the first year you weren’t with us. I was in a deep freeze then, unaware that the year ahead would be so difficult.
I’m not sure what today has in store for me, ,but I think I need to keep moving, busy. No Hoboken this year. No synagogue for the first time in 20 years.
I’m remembering our first walk together to Ami’s for celebrate the holidays. I’m remembering walking next to year feeling fall in the air, dressed well, holding your hand. Ready to celebrate us together for the first set of Jewish holidays.
Love you always,
