Though not my typical response, I had a revelation on Sunday night, or l'yud chesvan tash”a.
After months of innocently observing my health deteriorate, and continuing blindfoldingly down the path, I realized where I am heading, I finally had a revelation.
I had something I wanted to do (wave your hand Harry Potter) and I begged God to help me make it happen.
I suddenly realized my prayer had just been answered:
On Parashat Balak (insert date here [June 26, 2010] ) we celebrated our youngest daughter's Bat Mitzva....
(This is where RivkA stopped writing since Yaffa came to visit and then a whole string of visitors came and then it was night and in the morning she wrote the post above. She still wants to finish writing this post. However, I pushed her to tell me the end of the story since I was too curious to leave her side without hearing it. This is what she said:)
The revelation was that God answered my last question in the positive and I would be ok for the Bat Mitzvah. I asked for that.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,RivkA
