I can't believe it but 22 years ago today I gave birth to the most precious, beautiful little girl. She changed my life forever but enriched it more than she will ever know.
I watched this very shy child, tentatively start school, move past her fears and make some friends. I watched as she blossomed into a young woman, becoming a cheer leader, a straight "A" student and then off to college.
This Memorial Day weekend, she graduates from college. Wow, that went so fast. Not only is she graduating, but she doing something not that many do, she is walking into a job!! She interviewed for this job for months, going up the ladder of the corporation and got it! I was just notified that she will graduate on the Dean's list!!
This proud mom wishes her wonderful, beautiful daughter a very happy 22ned birthday!!

I haven't written a blog in a while, life is very busy. It has been a very hard road just getting back on track.
I think what I really needed was a long goal. My daughter is graduating from college on Memorial Day weekend. It is so hard to believe that 4 years just flew by like a minute. I'm so proud of her as not only is she graduating, she has a job!! She has been interviewing for this job for several months and she finally got it. What a proud mom I am!!!
My son turned 17 and got a car. I can't believe I don't have to schlep him around anymore and he is becoming so independent. They are growing up so fast it takes my breath away!
I also have a wedding to go to in June. My entire family will be there and I can't wait!
Having a goal is making sticking to my plan easier. When I reach those milestones, I will get future goals so I can keep going.
It's a plan :)

17 years ago today I delivered a squalling, 6 lb. bundle of adorableness!!!
Here in New York it was right in the middle of the "blizzard of the century!". There was so much snow that we had the fire department and the police department on alert in case we couldn't get to the hospital. I was a nervous wreck!!!
It has never been easy. Josh was really a handful and, well, still is but honestly he is a wonderful child and I feel blessed that he is mine!
It's been a wild ride but oh, so worth it. Happy birthday to my wonderful son Joshua. You are one of the reasons that make life worth living and one of the reasons for gray hair!! I love you sooooo much!!!

I have just returned from Israel this morning. I can't write a whole lot because I'm trying to just get my thoughts together.
This wasn't a trip. It was a journey!! 162 women who said, if the Israeli's can live with what's going on, I can go there and support them.
I learned so much, I have so much to sort out in my mind but if anyone is considering going, please, please go!!
I went with a group of incredible women from the JWRP, or Jewish Women's Renaissance Project. If any of you have children at home under the age of 18, you may be eligible. Look it up, apply, it's amazing!! I will be posting over the next few days when I can see straight. I'm very tired as I just lost 7 hours of time!! Since I have to work tomorrow, I'm going slow but trying to stay awake!!
Wishing you all a happy Channukah. You haven't celebrated this holiday until you can share it with some Israeli soldiers who are far away from home.
I am changed forever.

Just a note to say goodby to everyone for a couple of weeks! I'm leaving today to go to Israel. I'm so excited.
We have a group where I live called the Jewish Woman's Renaissance Project. It provides free trips to Israel if you qualify. It has taken nearly a year, interviews, forms etc but alas I qualified and off I go. This is a dream come true. If you are Jewish and want to do this you can go to their website and see if you qualify. They are all over the world!! (you do need to have a child living with you under the age of 18)
Because of a (current) bitter divorce, without this I would never have been able to go. I promise to report back when I return. I know it will be enlightening in oh, so many ways!!
See you all in a couple of weeks!!!
