My kids really helped get the house in order!
We were even ready a full half hour before we were scheduled to start!!
So, when women started arriving early, I was relaxed and able to sit around shmoozing!
We had a really nice turnout!! Almost 20 women and girls were here. (there were three more, but they left when they realized a woman was reading Megillah... their loss!)
As always, TS read really well!! I had a lot of fun listening to her!
After everyone left, my youngest daughter told me "it was really nice; kol hakavod!" (good job!)
I asked her if it was worth all the effort and, without hesitation, she answered "yes!"
I am already looking forward to next year!!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
