The day after

Yonah did just fine.  He danced and sang and marched.  And at the end of the evening he got his Siddur (prayer book).

When it was all over and the parents came down from the stands (it was held in a large sport facility), he was all smiles.  As I hugged him, I whispered in his ear, "Were you nervous?".  He said 'no', but then thought about it for a moment and then said, "oh yeah... maybe a little". 

And so it is... and so it will probably always be.  And that's probably a good thing.

He has a brand new book full of prayers, but my only prayer for him (today) is that his life should be filled with decisions and challenges that require careful thought, a little nervousness... followed by well-earned success.

Amen, Mazal tov and so pleased it went well - I was hoping you would write a followup post. I love siddur parties, even though ( or maybe because) they always make me cry!

All's well that begins well! And this is a wonderful beginning... and a wonderful story.
