There's a very special woman in my community who is both well known and well loved. Her absence of late has made me a bit uneasy. Yes, I could have called her. Instead, I asked all our mutual friends how she is doing and was assured all was well.
But it wasn't until yesterday, Shabbos, that I realized how much I missed this very special woman. She is literally sunshine. Standing about 5 feet tall, she's a chunky nugget of kindness spreading love to all she comes near. I knew I missed her dearly. Yesterday, I learned just how much.
Welcome back, Lady M!
