I suppose you could say I always feel it as I have opened my own school for the past 29 years and yes 25 at Lakeside Congregation. This time of year is always frenitic with opening school, the High Holy days and at least one birthday to plan. I planned some good parties in my day; maybe because I would rather focus on a great birthday party and not ordering enough Hebrew school books and pencils.
I will awake tomorrow and it will be Shabbat and another day closer to the opening of school and the High Holy days. To be awake and aware of everything is certainly a blessing one which I will think about tomorrow.
