We’re headed to see my sister and her family up north for a quick visit. It’s Christmas Eve, though in their neighborhood more people are celebrating Shabbat.
It’ll be so nice. We’ll spend the day talking and playing games. And catching up. Because most times when we try to talk on the phone, one of us has something to hurry up and finish, to work on, or to pick up. It’s not easy for 2 mothers of 3 to find time to talk.
We’ll have a dinner – all 12 of us. (Did I mention that my parents are going with us?) After sundown, the kids might watch a movie or play an electronic game. And the adults will hang out. Or something.
Whatever we do, it’ll be nice to be together. Even if it’s brief.
