Because It Was Good x 2 (Paamayim Ki Tov)

There is a tradition in Judaism, for weddings (and other important events) to be scheduled for Tuesdays. Why? Because, in the Torah, when God was creating the world, the text says the word “good” twice in respect to Tuesday, and on all the other days it says it only once. So it is thought to be a day with extra blessings.

My Tuesday today is definitely Paamayim Ki Tov. We were blessed this morning to watch our third son, Prince HockeyFan, put on tefillin for the first time, in shul. He joined the Club of the Tefillin Strappers. His father was on hand to help him and advise him, as were his brothers and his step-father. His step-mom and I watched from the ladies gallery and shepped much nachat. It doesn’t matter that I have done this a time or two before – it still touches me so deeply. Mazel Tov my son!

Secondly – today the KoD and I celebrate two years of married bliss! Last year for our first anniversary we were apart. I was in Montreal, he was in NY, we had no clue when we would be allowed to move to NY. I cried the entire day. I am so thankful and feel so blessed that we are together under the same roof. It’s been two wonderful years – despite the immigration headaches and nightmares – and I look forward to many more years of bliss with my KoD. Happy Anniversary!
