Today is thirty-one days, which is four weeks and three days, of the Omer. Tiferet of Hod. Beautiful Truth in Splendor.
The beautiful truth I witnessed today was my fellow students patiently waiting as I tried (for an hour) in vain to retrieve my jacket and scarf from the plane. And my sister letting me borrow her sweatshirt. And my husband sending me recordings of my children saying I love you.
May we all be blessed with soulful community to help us along our journey. May the kids allow my husband to sleep. May we all have the opportunity to retreat from daily life to reconnect with what brings us meaning.
