This is it! We’re finally here! We leave to the airport in just a few hours!
A quick thought….
This afternoon my family attended a Channaka luncheon at my kids’ school.
At the end of the program, the principal asked me if it would be okay if he’d wish my wife and I Mazal Tov over the microphone on account of our trip to Israel tomorrow.
I said, “Sure!”.
Now, you have to understand that everyone in that room already knew about our plan to travel to Israel.
So when he announced, “Mazal Tov to the Simes’ upon their upcoming trip tomorrow to Israel!” – no one noticed or even raised their eyes!
There were no standing ovations nor shouts of joy! No one rushed over to give us hugs and high fives!
Finally, after 3 1/2 years, we no longer enjoyed, “Celebrity Status”.
We were finally privileged to become “regular” and “normal” – just like everyone else!
UNTIL WE GET TO ISRAEL!!!
