Today was the first full day of the summer institute. It was lovely being with this group for Shabbat morning service and we did some learning and art too.
I got choked up at times thinking about my mom. I think about all the questions I want to ask her regarding a recent happy development. I want to tell her all about it. I can almost hear her telling me to be cautious, which I am, but I think she’d also be pleased. I’m just sad that she never got to see this while she was alive. It almost feels like I’ve failed her in that regard.
