This morning I am grateful for the memories I have of my father and Zady (Yiddish for grandfather) who would have both been celebrating their birthdays today. I am grateful for the opportunity to have woken up one more time. I am grateful for the ministerial work of my friend Nina who made sure someone we know was comfortable during their stay at the hospital. I am grateful for the opportunities which are presenting themselves to grow and evolve personally and professionally. I am grateful that Sam and Zoe are going to bring me to school today since I could not get a liftline reservation.
