My friends will tell you I am one of the kindest persons you will ever meet. I am also one of the funniest, and one thing I admire in a person is quality cynicism. My greatest accomplishment in life is that I raised (and launched) two amazing daughters. The way I see parenthood is this: each person's child should be his or her heart's desire. The way I see a man-woman relationship is this: it is necessary but not sufficient to say, "I love you." One must also actively show that he or she treasures the other person. I want to treasure and be treasured. Judaism grounds me. Judaism teaches me about that which is eternal. Judaism reminds me that there are people, ideas, and things of greater importance than am I. Judaism allows me to renew myself each day.
