Yep, a triple threat, with lots to be thankful for.
First, it's Purim, and we can't help but be happy about the Jewish nation being miraculously saved from the evil Haman. May G-d continue to watch over us and save us from the our modern-day Haman.
Second, it's my birthday (secular calendar)! And I may be getting older, but I'm also getting better...believe me I am NOT the person I was 20 years ago, but I like myself alot more....
Finally, Isaac and I celebrated 17 years of marriage yesterday (Hebrew calendar--we got married the night before Taanit Esther [Fast of Esther]). We have been through so much in the past 17 years--life throws lots of curveballs, huh? Still, we're here to tell the tale to anyone who'll listen and I'm thrilled to have him by my side. Happy anniversary, hon!
More to celebrate:
Haveil Havalim is up at The Real Shliach. Lots of fantastic posts there. And I've been remiss about not linking up to Leora's blog for her recent presentation of JPIX.
