Shalom readers!! I will keep this post short and “sweet” (PUN INTENDED) in honor of the Jewish New Year celebration. I am feeling very grateful today because my recovery from [wisdom teeth] surgery has been, for the most part, smooth sailing. There have been moments of pain and discomfort, but the exchange was sleep and ice cream. Do I really have cause to complain?? I may not be part of an elaborate Rosh Hashanah celebration, but I am celebrating in my heart. I have one favor to ask: I am restricted from eating anything but soft foods for obvious reasons. Will someone please eat challah and something made from apples for me?? Please & thank you.
In honor of my Sephardic ancestors, I leave you with this Ladino greeting: “Anyada Buena, para munchos anyos.”
“Have a good year for many years.”
L’shanah Tovah readers!!
