Today is the first day of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. It's a time for reflecting on the past year, forgiving and moving on, and setting intentions for the year to come.
I learned today that a dear friend of my grandparents, Ruth Spirn, passed. She was in her late 90s, and went very peacefully, with a half a spoonful of chocolate ice cream on her tongue to ease the journey.
Ruth was a wonderful woman and deeply a part of the fabric of my childhood and life. She used to polish my nails every weekend in the summer. (She had the most beautiful nails.). She always told me that the nail on the pointer finger of my left hand was my "best nail." I think of that and of her more often than anyone can imagine.
Ruth's son sent me this beautiful picture of his mom's hand in his. It was taken this past Tuesday.
Aren't her nails beautiful?
As we pass on the blessings given to us by those we have loved and lost, may we find their spirits again and again.
