I’ve been up since 4:15 AM when my cell phone beeped, a message alert from my mother. I opened it up and looked at my new nephew, Jacob, born a few moments prior. G-d truly is wonderful. I feel blessed to share my Jewish birthday with my newest nephew, whom I named. In 2 hours I will join the Jewish people. Feeling excited, nervous, anxious, and grateful.
