So nice!

Today, I was waiting for a phone call - I felt entitled to it, so I've been cranky that it hasn't come. This totally changed my perspective. Thank you!

give a present to your parent

Lori, You once told of someone you know who raised his children to, on their birthdays, give their mother a present. That's what we do on Rosh Hashana - on our birthday we proclaim him our King. Ksiva v'chasima tova.
