On Friday June 20, 2014 Alison became a Bat Mitzvah. For months, weeks and days I've worked on planning the party while she worked on learning her Torah portion. The whole process of planning was very emotional. I cried almost every day while putting together her video montage. Then I cried during the service, more tears of joy than sorrow. How did the time fly by so quickly?
And it occurred to me a few times I should have been working on a Bar Mitzvah last year. I prayed to Solomon to just watch over her, and I think sometimes he does.
