One Year Ago

Blogroll Me!

One year ago this weekend, I was wearing a new skirt for Shabbos dinner.
I wore that same skirt to shul this Shabbos.

One year ago this weekend, it was VERY HOT & HUMID but with a BALMY BREEZE.
This Shabbos it was the same weather.

One year ago this weekend, I was in Los Angeles.
This Shabbos I was in Toronto.

One year ago this weekend, I was invited for Shabbos meals to a friend's home, and was treated just like family.
This Shabbos I invited friends and family to Shabbos meals in my home.

One year ago this weekend, our pug, Tyson, died.
This Shabbos our shih-poo, Max, was full of life.

One year ago this weekend, I was out of town over Father's Day.
This year I'm in town for Father's Day.

One year ago this weekend, I made long-distance calls to my father and husband for Father's Day.
This year I can celebrate in person with both my father and my husband.

A lot can happen in a year. I thank G-d for both my father and my husband.

Happy Father's Day to two very special men in my life.

Thank you, CM. Papa Pearl is aka "Da" "Dad" "Daddy"; Mr. Toronto is aka "Aba" or "Hey, Babe"!

I said this to CM as well, but it's worth repeating... neither would be a father without you. :)

Really sweet post - and I'm actually hoping to be in Toronto later this week. Hoping being the key word here...

Interesting for me to think about what occured one year ago. You have a good memory.

Ezzie: sweet sentiment, but I'm the youngest child, so indeed my father could've been a father without me! Hope to see you. Enjoy the simcha in the meantime, and safe travels.

SW/FM: For me, both significant and trivial things are memorable.
