Thank you david and Leah...been following your latest and greatests all year!I have faithfully been following all of your l

 

Posted by: Marlene Burns on 09/15/2013 - 10:28 AM

wendy, since you asked, it was a Yom Kippur to remember, I opted not to officaite several months ago...it's so important to be a congregant sometimes so I can be inspired in order to turn around and inspire others. As it turned out, my clergy returned to my temple in Phoenix and I was able to be with them again which was outrageous, last week.
This week, all the rules changed. I am in the hospital with my mom ( my comments in the threads are my breaks when she sleeps and to be honest, good distraction)
We listened to the most fabulous of the famous cantors (richard tucker) chant the opening prayer, then I led an intimate service Friday night just for her. My nephew is a rabbi and sent her his sermon for me to read yesterday and my brother called and through the speaker phone, he blew the shofar ( ram's horn) to announce the end of the day. She is living on a feeding tube for the past several weeks....so fasting was certainly the easiest for her this year...and to be honest, I have no appetite.
It was amazingly bittersweet and certainly a holy day to remember for all time.

 

Posted by: Marlene Burns on 09/15/2013 - 10:28 AM

Randy, wonderful to see you as well! Thanks for keeping up with my work this past year ;)

 

Posted by: Wendy J St Christopher on 09/15/2013 - 10:41 AM

Posted by: Marlene Burns on 09/15/2013 - 6:39 PM

Hey, Mary...it seems almost weird to talk to you in a thread!!

 

Posted by: Darice Machel McGuire on 09/15/2013 - 6:42 PM

Your mom is a lucky woman to have you so close. Sending good thoughts your way.

 

Posted by: Mary Bedy on 09/15/2013 - 7:08 PM

You know what I went through the last couple years with my parents, Marlene, I'm thinking about you and sending good energy. Been there...here's hoping for peace and quite tranquility.

 

Posted by: Marlene Burns on 09/15/2013 - 8:44 PM

Darice, my Mom is lucky in many ways but not with a daughter close. I traveled cross country and moved into her hospital room....
Mary, thank you. We are lucky to be able to support one another, yes
