So I awoke to my supposed to be late sleep in on the Sabbath…to text messages from my husband telling me he won’t be coming home today….or tomorrow…not till Monday!
This was a great disappointment to me and the children. I felt like I was just weighed down by it all then realized I was probably fighting off a cold, yuch! We had a fairly peaceful day, did some Torah study, ate a lot of food and basically just took it easy. Havdallah was sad for me, sad to say goodbye to the Sabbath, but also sad that we were singing without Daddy
