Our second Seder this year which was just as nice as the first. I really enjoyed both - being with all of my family and this year our newest grand grandson.
I began to reminisce all the previous Passovers I had - some good - some better - some sad, but always together. When I was a little girl my Mother took me to town and bought me a new outfit - dress, maryjane shoes and everything else I needed to be dressed for the holiday.
My task for the preparation was to rinse all the glassware for three days so they would be kosher for the Seders. I liked that because it gave me the time to splash in the water -- what fun!
I always volunteered to open the door for Elijah and I would tell my family he smiled as he came into the house. And I saw he was wearing white pants. That made me feel very special.
But alas I grew up and time came that I lost both my Mother and Mother-in-law a few days before the Seders. Then I felt the great loss and it is with me to this very day.
When the snow melted and I would go out to our yard and I would see the birds singing and the flowers and trees starting to bloom, I was so happy - summer will soon be here.
And now many years have passed and I am a Great Grandmother and I thank the good Lord that he has smiled on me so that I see my children, my grand children and now I am blessed with great grandchildren. G-d has surely smiled on me and I am grateful.
