Turning 3

DSC_0430

My dear little boy is leaving toddlerhood behind and turning 3 tomorrow. Where does the time go?! This year his birthday falls on Friday, the very day on which he was born, just a few minutes before Shabbat, in fact. We barely had time to call my mom and say congratulations.

We have felt your absence so much, dear sweetheart, before you arrived to make our world brighter, and we’ve been thankful ever since that G-d chose to give you to us, and not to anybody else.

So happy birthday, Israel. I love you more than the whole world ten times over.

    • Catherine, the Jewish calendar, of course. 🙂 My son was born on the 11-th of Tevet, which was January 2nd, 2015. This year the 11-th of Tevet falls on December 29-th.
