Rescue in Jude

Yesterday I decided to take Lily on an inspirational morning walk. Something we had not done in a while.

We walked through some of our favorite streets and neighborhood and ended up by the “Hand”, the monument in memory of the ones that died in the Holocaust.

A heavy subject on its own, I had NO idea what I was in for.

As Lily and I made our way through the grounds, it began to rain. (June in Miami, typical)

At the end of the pergola covered walkway where Lily and I were walking, I saw a dome. I quickly rushed both Lily and I under it.

It immediately took my breath away!

There we were, Lily and I underneath this beautiful dome while it rained.

I looked up and there was a star of David with the name Jude on it.

Rescue in Jude I thought. (Just for the record, I’m not Jewish, I was raised Catholic but I’m not a big believer in or practice the Catholic religion. I consider myself a spiritual person for the most part)

The rain, the beautiful chanting music that was echoing through the walls, the light, it was all so magical!

I was filled with goose bumps and tears.

It was the most spiritual and enlightening moment I have shared with Lily since the day she was born.
