#BlogElul: We Have Every Reason to Believe...

In the last few weeks, I've written and spoken these words countless times about my sister, who recently was diagnosed with breast cancer:
She's going to see my breast surgeon in two weeks.  In the meantime, we're trying to be strong for each other...and we have every reason to believe that she will be fine.
Ken yehi ratzon.

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
