“Yes, I’m serious.”
“Yes!” Lesha was excited. Feter (Uncle) Chaim and Tante (Aunt) Judith weren’t really her relatives, of course, but they were close family friends and had 7 cute kids. She hadn’t seen them in two years, and now Mommy and Tatty said they were coming for Winter Break. Just a month away! She sat down, pulled out her latest book, and went back to reading. Her mother smiled and left the room.
Do I tell her now? No, not yet. Not until we’re certain. She went down to make dinner, leaving Lesha absorbed in whatever she was reading this time.
