My Experience at a Wrapunzel Workshop

What a blessed Mother’s Day I have had! My wonderful aunt sent me flowers on Friday. My kids showered me with their cards and gifts Sunday morning. We went to visit and share a meal with my mom and sisters and their families Sunday afternoon. It was a wonderful relaxing Sunday.

Sunday night, on the other hand, was so exciting! I went to a Wrapunzel Workshop at U City Shul with my daughter and my non-covering friend. It was amazing!!! I learned some things about hair care that I will share in another post. I enjoyed great fellowship. I was blessed by a very sweet new friend! She was asked to share her covering story and it was beautiful! She really expressed it so eloquently. I wonder if I can convince her to share her story here? She also blessed me by buying me a beautiful Sari Scarf tichel. I’m sure she has no idea how much that simple gesture blessed me. Maybe I will write more about that at another time.

Meeting Andrea Grinberg and Rivka Malka Perlman was incredible! They are so warm and welcoming that you instantly feel like you’re among family.

The drive home was a blessing because my non-covering friend and I had lots of time to chat. (I want to clarify that I really don’t typically classify my friends as covering vs non-covering. I actually have never, ever done that or even thought about it that way. They are just my friends. But this was so interesting the way that YHVH orchestrated everything to have her there. I didn’t ask her to go because she doesn’t cover. But she had lent me her car the day before because our van is btroke down. We have been driving a 5 seater vehicle with 10 people in the household for about 4 or 5 months. It means we don’t go very many places as a family and when we do we make 2 or 3 trips to get everyone there and repeat the process when we go home. So after making 2 trips to our Shabbat gathering at my friends house which is about a 30 minute drive, she told us just take my car and I will come get it tomorrow. So I did. Which, by the way, is the only reason we were able to go see my mom on Mother’s Day. Anyway, my friend came to pick up her car as I was about to walk out the door to go to the Wrapunzelution Workshop. I don’t remember exactly what was said. Only things like, “You should come!” and “I would love to but I need a babysitter.” My teenage daughter was ecstatic to babysit. So next there was a flurry of borrowing clothes and shoes and me changing my headcover at the last minute to rush out the door and arrive in U City in perfect time. The changing my head cover was because my sweet friend blessed me with a beautiful scarf that belonged to her Grandmother! So special! I feel honored and humbled, as if Hashem has smiled on me today. Pictures and more to come later.
