Yesterday was the happiest and saddest day in my life so far.
Marrying my oldest son Levi to my newest daughter Nechama was a feeling beyond elation. I can’t describe it. I keep telling all my friends that if I knew it would feel this good, I would have done it a long time ago.
What made it so amazing that I was on such a high was the fact that I was weeping uncontrollably an hour before when I found out that I had lost my second mother and my personal example of a great woman of Israel, Miriam Lowenbraun.
Miriam was instrumental in teaching and demonstrating for both Chani and I how to have an open home, a beautiful family and a strong marriage. I find myself constantly shifting between unbelievable pleasure and unbelievable pain. The common denominator that combines them is an overwhelming unbelievable feeling of Love.
