Today is August 2,2106 and I am officially making Aliyah. My nerves are high but not as high as I expected them to be because it really just feels like I am going home. I asked Hashem to open my heart and to allow me to receive his energy and to just be still and listen. This journey has not been easy at all but it has been beautiful and like a patchwork blanket, has been woven with love and trust in my creator. I truly have no idea how coming home is going to be but I know that this is where I am supposed to be.
Today started out early and almost uncertain. I got up and worked out and repacked my luggage and then I arrived at the airport and a small rainbow appeared in my heart as the final clue that I made the right decision. I went through El AL security which was intense but I waited it out because I know anything worth having is worth waiting for.
I sit in my beautiful window seat, 51A to be exact, and about 6 hours into my flight and I can’t wait to touch the Israeli ground because then I will know it’s really real. New friends and new experiences await me..
