11 months

My mother died and was buried in Jerusalem on the 20th of Sivan last year. Today is the 19th of Iyyar, the last day for me and my siblings to say kaddish for her. I can't honestly say that the 11 months have gone quickly--it'll be nice to be able to sleep an hour longer tomorrow. But I miss my weekly phone chats with Mom.

This morning, the other minyannaires at my "kaddish synagogue" wished me "long life." I wish the same for my father.
