She hasn't lost her shine

I was basically useless at work yesterday. All I could think about was Ariella being bounced around the IDF processing center like a shiny silver ball in a pinball machine. I knew she could hold her own and stand up to most any abuse. But I didn't want it to be at the cost of the light that shines from within her.

Finally at the end of the day when I was on my way home from work, a single photo hit my cell phone.

I needn't have worried.

Shabbat Shalom.

Beautiful, David. Will keep her in my prayers, if that's ok with you?
Shabbat Shalom to you all from the sweltering heat of east coast Scotland(yes, really!)

Hope her time in the IDF will be safe and rewarding. You should be very proud.

She always makes me smile.

It's quite okay to be a proud dad.

And to worry.

You and her are in my prayers.

Mazal Tov on this important milestone in your daughter's life. She looks lovely in the uniform. Wishing her a lot of success in the army.

David, I ran across a comment of yours while reading something on my old blog (nycgadgetgirl.com) tonight, so I stopped by to catch up on a few of your posts. Your daughter is all grown up and so beautiful! :)

Jenna... What a nice surprise. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you and your spirited canine companion are both well.

Casting call: “Hollywood studio seeks beautiful, smart Israeli girl—once described by a screenwriter as a Jewish Titian—for lead role in film.”

Wow! I was just talking about a post you wrote about her knitting kipot and the significance of it. Shana Tova to you and your family.
