... Joey's birthday! How old is he? 22!!!!!
I still remember that Yom Kippur that I paced the halls of Presbyterian Hospital with Avram. Me, wishing he'd come already because 9 months can and does feel like 9 years sometimes - Avram, because he was missing davening in shul and was hoping to be back in time for mincha (he was ;) ).
Joey is a very special and caring young man. Not only does he live a life that is shaping up to be a shining example of Torah Im Derech Eretz, but he also truly cares about others. In the global sense as well as in the personal sense.
One example of each.
He gives blood as often as New York City allows.
When his mother is stressed to the max, he comes home with tropical scented body wash for her to help take her stresses away.
Line up ladies! (He's gonna absolutely kill me for writing that..... tee hee....)

Tomorrow, in fact, happens to be Erica's birthday. It makes me chuckle to remember how when she was a little girl she could never understand how, if she was the OLDER sister, Joey was born a day EARLIER.....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BOTH OF YOU!!!!
