Some of MD's friends already received their acceptance letters on Thursday. A few more received theirs on Friday.
Going into Shabbat, MD still had not received any letter. It was a tense Shabbat....
Sunday morning, we all left before the mail arrived.
Sunday afternoon, there was a thick envelope in the mailbox.
I remember applying to colleges.... thick envelopes were good, they contained all sorts of forms....
I waited until I was inside, then opened the letter.....
"We are pleased to inform you that your son has been accepted...."
I called Moshe. Then I called MD.
I could hear the relief in his voice.
He got into the school where he wants to go.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Hot Days of August Upon Us
