Omer 1

Barukh ata Adonay, Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu al sfirat ha-omer.

Blessed are You, Adonay our God, ruler of the universe, who makes us holy with mitzvot and gives us this opportunity to count the Omer.

Today is the first day of the Omer, khesed be khesed, kindness within kindness, love within love

 Today is the day when I remember that as well as everyone else, I need to find room for myself. It is Pesach and tax season and spring and crazy busy term switching non-stop activity work time. And all I have is myself and a lap top to stand against it. Today, I remember that I am important and in between loving everyone else I take time to love myself too. I have another drink of water. I go to bed early. Maybe within loving others is that key moment in which I love myself too.

 Today, may we love ourselves enough to take care of ourselves lovingly
