This weekend was so busy I didn't sit to type and now I'm tired and full of memories and almost don't want to try to bother to capture them - but it feels wrong to let so sweet a time flow through my fingers and memory - so I'll hit the high spots. Ruth and Chris took Liam to synagogue on Friday night and the rabbi asked us to come forward and receive the beautiful certificate of naming he had made for our little guy - Liam Chaim - loved in his congregation Our community, like every other group, is feeling the anxiety of the economic downturn, talking of shortened hours, jobs lost or in danger, valuing every success and every relationship. I bond slowly with congregations, but I am feeling more bonded with this one than I have with any in a long time. Ruth and Chris are so easy with Liam, and he with them. Joanna's whole family just wraps little Andrea in love - Bob and I had time with both babies - time to appreciate them still so tiny new but growing ind more complete than even last weekend - so sweet. We also hiked with the bigger grand kids today, a pleasant, though warm, three miles at McKinney falls - a trail we usually don't choose and enjoyed. The lack of wild flowers is a little disturbing in that park given the warm temperatures - Bob thinks it has just been too dry. it's supposed to rain this week and I hope it does.

How wonderful that you feel more bonded than this congregation than you have with any in a while. Important, I think. Glad you had time with both babies and families. I am hoping to see a photo somewhere of you with each or both babies. That would be special.

I think its just wonderful that you have been able to bond more quickly with this congregation.
The weather is very quirky this year so far. I hope that the wildflowers do bloom soon for you. The pollen is SO bad here right now, everything is covered in a green or yellow film of pollen. So, I guess you can be thankful that you don't have that part of coming spring yet. LOL

Wonderful to read about your weekend so filled with memories. And how touching to read about the certificate of naming the rabbi made for Liam!

Nice to read about the two well-loved babies!
