What a beautiful clan! I lovingly gazed at every beloved member smiling back at me. There they were, wholesome in body and spirit. Taking center stage were my husband and I, patriarch and matriarch of a large and growing family, bli ayin hara, a couple in the middle years of their lives,but in no way middling. (While my countenance bespeaks my age, no doubt, my heart throbs with youthful aspirations. My step, perhaps a tad slower and heavier, still has an unmistakable bounce to it, and I can certainly outpace any twenty-year-old, provided I wear my sneakers.) ...
It was such a slow and imperceptible process that I have trouble pinpointing the exact moment in time that I stepped into the role of matriarch. Did it begin more than twenty years ago, when dear Ima passed away, leaving the home I had frequented with my kids bereft of a soul? Or could I trace it back to the time when, in the apartment below mine, my shvigger (mother-in-law) took her last breath, and my children no longer had anyone to call “Babbi”?
