Learning By Example

Raphaela and I spent this past Shabbat with Savta Shira.  Her 20 year old daughter, rather than be with her parents and in her own bed, was helping a single mother of five by baby sitting for the entire weekend, while the mother took a much needed vacation in honor of her birthday.

I admire the sitter for literally taking on the responsibility of an entire family, and I admire the single mother, who was smart enough to know that she needs time for herself, and was able to arrange it.

One nice little girl should be a cakewalk, then. When's she free next?
