Today is Liat's birthday on the לועזי ["lohahzi"--secular] calendar. She is 15 years old, Thank G-d. We acknowledged the day, but since it is a fast day, we will celebrate her birthday (and Orli's because she was in camp for her big day) on Chol Hamoed Sukkot, her Hebrew birthday.
The phone has been ringing off the hook as Liat's friends from America keep calling her to say hello. And I distinctly heard Liat say that even though school was really, really hard, she really, really liked it.
And I am really, really hopeful that, with G-d's help, she will have a really, really good year.
