Loving Kindness in Creation

Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 36, double chai

- Joy Krauthammer

With rare live visits, I give within Chesed to my far away grandchild, yet I am blessed with many Bubbie babysitting Skype visits. We have a foundation that has been enhanced with family bonding.

With Maya's first birthday is coming soon in several weeks, I am so excited that I have now already designed and created a birthday card, filled with love, sweetness, sentiment, and bonding. In Yesod, there are four generations, L'Dor V'DorI loved creating for Maya, her name in designs, and being able to float her name, suspended in the surreal sky. 

If I am not in the photos, I shot the photos. If I'm in them, I digitally altered them. I want Ms. Maya to enjoy what I have made for her in pretty feminine girly colors, when she is old enough to appreciate the creation for her. (In Chesed sh b'Yesod, I recall that my beloved grandma Ethel, z"l, made me 'booties', but I don't remember how to knit and she taught me when I was about 8 years.)

There was great kindness extended to me from Apple trainers for me to quickly learn the advanced processes to create this card. Trainers really cared that I manifest what my heart and soul yearned to do in bonding connection further with my granddaughter.  Trainers were good in not letting me ungepotchkeyt (mess up and excessively and unesthetically decorate without form) my creation and limited me to my chosen 8 photo images.
