Last Thursday 11/3 marked the 50th anniversary of my Bat Mitzvah, a joyful celebration of a serious milestone in my life. I was blessed to have both my parents and all my sisters as well as many other family and friends to celebrate with me. It’s a blessing to be able to remember those days with photographs of the time. This photo is me at 13 years old with my parents and one of my sisters. Are you digging the striped wallpaper and my groovy plaid pants? Far out! I’m especially thankful for the memories of my Bat Mitzvah. What photos of important childhood milestones are buried in your old family photos? Dig them out and cherish them!
