So we're making progress towards where we need to be. And we're making progress towards his 2nd birthday! I've already had some people ask if we're going to celebrate again, and the answer is a definite YES! So if you're reading this, if Aaron has touched your life, you're invited on his birthday, one month from today. It really doesn't matter if you don't think you know us well enough. If you want to come, you're welcome to celebrate with us. Of course there will be more details later. Happy 23 months, little man. You have blessed our lives so much.
Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy.
Rabbi Abraham Heschel
