So it’s been a moment….

This has got to be one of the most intense application processes that I have ever been through in my life. If you want something bad enough or think you want something bad enough, you will just about do anything!  I don’t pretend to have all of the answers but I know whatever is in store for me it’s huge.. Today I cried tears of joy and confirmation and excitement when I scribed a letter in the Torah that my shul is having created in honor of its 50th anniversary. 
The letter I was assigned was Lamed!
Now I had no idea how deep the meaning would be for me until I heard the rabbi/sefer explain the meaning of it. Here are couple of cool facts… The Lamed is the tallest letter in the aleph bet,  it is going straight up  and is associated with teaching and learning.  The sefer instructed me that Torah teaches us to be better each day than we were the day before, to forever be that slave leaving Egypt. I can not explain everything and that’s ok because I tucked it deep in to a little place inside of me. What I am excited about is though my life may not be everything I want and more at this moment, I know things are going just as planned!
