Post-Purim Busy, Busy, Busy
I woke up today to life post-Purim.
Purim was wonderful but I think it will take me about a week to recover…
Not only to put away the costumes and sort through the candy and clean up the remaining mess. But, more importantly, to make up for the two days of preparing for Purim and celebrating Purim during which I wasn’t able to answer any emails, run any errands, or check anything off my ever-growing to-do list.
Not to mention that now, with Purim behind us, Passover is right around the corner…OY, don’t remind me.
So with all of this on my shoulders I brought Tsofia to gan this morning.
Ganenet Rachel waited seven years until her twin boys were born 13 years ago on Purim day (and b”H, 6 other healthy, beautiful children followed KA”H).
The twins’ bar mitzvah is this coming Wednesday. So I asked Ganenet Rachel how she’s managing…not only with pre-Purim and Purim and post-Purim but with a double bar mitzvah as well!
And this is what Ganenet Rachel told me, “I will not tell you how few hours I’ve been sleeping every night….
“Between Purim and the seudat mitzvah for the bar mitzvah this past Sunday and now the bar mitzvah celebration for the twins this coming Wednesday…
“But I just keep on reminding myself that there are people out there who are busy running from one hospital to another. I know, I was one of them! And B”H, we are busy with simchas.”
Amen! The sticky floors and the dirty costumes and the page long to-do list.
B”H, B”H, B”H busy, busy, busy with simchas.
