Mother's Day, every day

I wrote an essay about my little niece Lily and my beloved mom, Liora. Sadly, they never got to meet. My mom passed away a couple of years before Lily was born, but there’s no doubt in my mind that they would have fallen instantly and forever in love with one another.

I wrote an essay about Lily’s scary birth and my mom’s example of how to cope during hard, scary times. It was her memory which helped all of us get through that terrifying week with bravery and optimism. It’s in this month’s issue of Hadassah Magazine. In case you want to read it, here it is.

Happy mother’s day to all you mothers and all you children. Even if you, like me, no longer have your mother living, I hope you celebrate the gift of having her in your life for as long as you did.

Much love to you all,
