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.

under the dome
i think even Lily felt enlightened
she could be praying, who knows?
the rain stopped and the sun shined again
one of the most moving and amazingly sculpted monuments
