Challah Baking (a.k.a. Hafrashat Challah) in Memory of My Pearl & By Pearl, I Mean, My Mommy <3

Tonight, I made Challah bread dough in memory of my PEARL. And by pearl, I mean, my mommy.

It’s been years since you left us, but tonight, I felt your presence more than ever.

It’s amazing how you still have this ability & power to LIGHT UP ANY ROOM, even when you are not physically there. I can only dream & aspire to be half the amazing woman that you were & the way people spoke about you tonight (& always is a testimony to exactly that: PEARLS LIKE YOU ARE A RARE FIND & I am the most fortunate girl int he world to have the privilege to be your daughter. I can assure you that, that privilege will live on forever.

Mommy, I wish you were here to help me get through these difficult times & to watch me throughout my journey towards recovery, but I am also SO unbelievably thankful that you are doing the next best thing by sending me the strength, motivation & willpower to overcome it all, even without you being by my side physically.

Thanks to you, I am Superwoman.

I love you mommy & miss you now, more than ever.

Oh & thank you mommy for reuniting me (FINALLY) with my bests <3 <3 <3 I love you girls to the moon & wish I could have been more present in your lives in the past two years but, I am also SO thankful that you have remained by my side & been SO understanding even when I legit went MIA, even when I may not have been able to be the “best friend ever” & even when it seemed like we had drifted (WHO ARE WE KIDDING? We’d never drift!). It’s amazing how things have a way of falling right back into place & right where they could be with you girls ALL THE FREAKING TIME. Our bond is just THAT strong. AND NOW, GUESS WHO’S BACK?

UPDATE: HERE ARE THE BABES BEFORE BEING BAKED (a.k.a. it’s 5:30 am on Wednesday morning & I just braided Challah, waddup? #Superwoman)

CURRENT SITCH IN MY KITCH: Baking the Challah’s in mommy’s honour <3 (It is currently 5:37am, btw!). Thinking of you so hard this morning, mommy. As I braid these challahs, I am reminded of your always-full-of-people-life-&-delicious-food Shabbat tables that I (& so many others) had the privilege to be a part of & I can’t help but hope that one day, I’ll be able to accomplish the exact same thing.

You had (& STILL HAVE) this IMMENSE ABILITY TO REUNITE & BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER <3 & the fact that you STILL manage to do so even though you are not physically here says everything about the amazing, loving, kind, caring, selfless, generous & beautiful (inside & out) woman that you were.

I love you <3.
