Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

A Soldier Speaks

Posted by rutimizrachi on 26/01/2009

Yom sheni, Rosh Chodesh, 1 Shevat 5769.

The Dearly Beloved and I got to spend yesterday with Soldier Boy and his bride. 

 
 
 
He looks good.  They seem very happy to be “normal” again.  
I have a lot to process about the war, and its aftermath.  But right now what my son has to say at his own blog, Through Josh-Colored Glasses, seems more important.  Please click on the link, and enjoy reading the soldier’s impressions in his own voice.  Warning:  The guy just came back from a war.  There are some graphic images.

I’ll save my thoughts for another time.

Short Mantra for Parents of Soldiers, and Others Who Love Them

Posted by rutimizrachi on 01/01/2009

Yom chamishi, 5 Tevet 5769.

 

May Hashem bless our soldiers with safety, strength, wisdom in battle, loyalty to each other, and success.  May they have many mitzvot that Hashem requires of them, which they can only fulfill as healthy old men.
