What an awesome bracha and privilege, celebrating the Bar Mitzvah of my second son this week!
I am blessed and so grateful. Hashem has been loving and generous to me and my family in more ways than I can count.
I keep thinking how lucky I am to have so many wonderful close and loving friends...and family.,
An aunt came from the US to the Bar Mitzvah, and a nephew who is studying in Israel came too. He connected with me on Facebook a couple of years ago. A cousin, who is also a neighbor, came and her husband took some wonderful photos.
It is my daily experience that truth and love are so much more powerful than any kind of lie or abuse. I have experienced deep and profound healing on a personal level, and I hope to expand my experience to include my family and community.
I invited my mother and siblings to my son's Bar Mitzvah. They didn't come, but my mother and one of my brothers sent notes and beautiful presents for my children.
You may think it is a fantasy, but I will never give up hope that someday my family can and will heal.
