Shabbat Shalom and Happy Birthday to Herb Kaplan.
It was a great night to celebrate my dad’s 88. My brother showed up with a new computer as our collective gift and while we digested a great meal, he worked to set it up and I unboxed the cake I brought along for dessert. Of course, before the computer challenge my youngest brother and I shared the cleanup. It was warmly familiar. Rick washed, I dried and we talked. It was good to be home and surrounded by family.
Too bad the whole family wasn’t with us. Antoher brother and family, away this weekend. Too bad you can’t have it all. Too bad that there isn’t a better fit.
I have come to accpet what comes my way. The moments of face-to-face communication are fewer and need to be cherished, so I am resolved to grab for what is possible even if it’s not perfect and whole.
I am sure my dad and mom enjoyed the evening with a good number of their children, grandchildren, my dad’s sister and niece and of course, Tuvia who somehow escaped this photo to return to the news.
A good night!
