When You Keep Meeting Your Heroes Across The Globe- Passover 2012 (Lima, Peru)

We’re so lucky. The Gods are smiling upon us. They do that a lot these passed few years. Yeah, the Gods are definitely paying us back, with interest, on some unearthly good Karma. We’re thrilled to cash in our chips. THANK YOU KINDLY STAR-DUST CREATORS! We’ll bask in the good stuff!

So, we are at Modi and Anat Ephraim’s house. Have you ever told you our love story? I think I’ll have to ask Modi for permission how much I can say about the one family that probably had the most influence on almost every major parenting/family decision we’ve ever made. He’s important now, with full-time guards (when we saw him in Huanchaco, he had a convoy, dear God) and he wears suits that don’t wrinkle. When we knew him, back then, he was in the hood. So, we still treat him like a worthless nobody, but you’ve gotta be careful with the diplomatic sorts.

So, for now, until I get permission in three copies with a few backup signatures from half a dozen heads of state, we’ll just say we love them, have loved them for 17 years now, and are so lucky to be able to have seen them in Guatemala (17 years ago), Houston (15 years ago), Israel (6 years ago), and now Peru. Funny, how we’ve gotten to share so much with them.

OK, I just have to mention the top three impacts they had on us, though it’s so hard to limit to three:

1- They had triplets whom we adored so much. We tried. God didn’t give it to us, so we made our own birthing our three in 2002, 2003, and 2004.

2- Their youngest son, coolest kid in the world, is named Or, light in Hebrew.We named our son, Or-raz, secret light. No small coincidence.

3- They have been sent all over the globe for three and four year assignments. We liked that, so we’re sending ourselves on such an assignment.

Need I say more? These people have molded us like no one else on the globe. So, having Passover dinner in their company is beyond-words cool. Happy Holidays.

Ever had a couple who you wanted to spend more time with them AND their kids than just them, before you had kids? We didn’t, until Modi and Anat. Did you have any parenting and family role models waaaay before you even thought of having kids. Right, you thought I was going to talk about Passover (which was initial intention) but I took us all on a lovely little side tour? Speak to me. And like us in google plusl one, and share in facebook cuz that helps us so much. And, while you’re at it, come give me a message, and wash the windows (which I don’t have), and subscribe to our youtube channel. And send us lots of love.

We love you,

Dahnya, Solai, Kobi, Orazi and Gabi
