Home

There are some funny emotional moments that I have been having here. 


Like when we found out that S's  amazing Rebbe was the same one that A had back in 1st grade when we used to live here. 


Or when I pass by our old apartment and find 20 foot tall trees where I lovingly planted and nurtured small saplings. 


Or like, when R looked up at me at the playground in the shopping center and said, "Imma, this is my favorite playground ever!" and I was reminded of my older kids saying the exact same thing at the exact same playground 6 years ago.


Or when I ran into an old acquaintance and she said, "Oh good! You are here, I was getting worried, I haven't seen you around lately!" Yeah, like in 5 years...


It helps make the blow softer; leaving one home for another home is easier than just leaving home.
