Chag Kasher V'Sameach!
I was sitting in shul the other day and thinking about this time each year when we start counting the days from Pesach to Shavuos. I really think it's amazing to think of the fact that we, in our own way, reenact our time of accepting our committment to Hashem. I think by doing this annually, it serves as our yearly reminder as to what our lives are about. I am going to attempt to hold onto those thoughts while I sit through the sederim with my friends who have become my family. I hope that everyone else has family or friends to celebrate our freedom with. Next year in Jerusalem!
