Happy Birthday Shmuel

Yesterday was our grandson's first birthday, zzg.

We feel fortunate beyond words to have been blessed with such a cute, healthy, happy baby. (And to have had the baby named after my dad, z'l, only a few months after his passing, brought great nechamah).

With the arrival into our home of our own foster baby only a few months after Shmuel was born and the craziness that that has engendered (how many people do you know in the non-chareidi world are raising babies younger than their grandchildren), perhaps I haven't adequately expressed to our son and daughter in law just how much Shmuel means to us.

May he continue to thrive and be a source of nachas to his parents , grandparents, great grandparents and all of Klal Yisrael.
