#BlogElul 24: Hope

I could not have hoped for a better day.
  1. I slept in and had a leisurely breakfast with time for reading the paper.
  2. Impromptu plans to play in the Mahjongg Marathon in Bryant Park panned out…truly an only-in-New-York experience.
  3. When he was finished at the Met, Daddy met Amy and me in the park, and we had a late lunch together at Le Pain Quotidien.
  1. Since returning home, I’ve caught up on email, finished some chores, and prepared for the rest of the week.
Today was a wonderful mix of relaxation, work, social time, time with family, and time alone.

I am hopeful that 5776 will offer many such days that are just as balanced and enjoyable.

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.
