"Yes a heart will always go one step too far." - The New Pornographers
Friends, my heart has been heavy this week. From escalating tensions in the Middle East reenacting themselves in my classroom to extremely difficult and intimate news from a dear friend, there has been so much to ponder. Is is always true that things become more difficult and complicated the older you get? Well, at least some things, such as love and friendship, grow stronger and more effortless over time.
But why not look on the bright side? In the long term, we are becoming friends with a sweet couple who will be joining us in Israel. This will make the transition much easier. In the short term, we are going to see tons of friends this week because it is UMD spring break and we've planned some fun activities (Even though I have to work, and Dave doesn't really get a break since he is working on his thesis).
Thanks so much for keeping up with me even though I've been a spotty blogger lately. Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! Xoxo
