F is For Friendship: What You Want

Ruchama Schnaidman

Sometimes you just know exactly what you want. Every year on each of her grandchildren’s birthdays, my Savta sends a card that says: Happy birthday to you I say, Please be a dear and call me today. To tell me which present you’d like sent your way, And I’ll buy it for you, right away. And every year I think of something I want.

It was gorgeous. It was stunning. It was magnificent. And when Devorah told me that she got it as a birthday present from our Savta, I knew it was perfect. Perfect for me.
