Homeward Angel

Last week’s Torah portion included Jacob’s dream of a stairway from Earth to heaven with angels going up and down. It is significant that the angels start here on Earth.  Sage Torah commentators consider that authority that angels dwell among us.

This resonated for me this week because my sister, D, is visiting for Thanksgiving. Unprompted, she offered to stay with J tonight so I can go out.  I have known for many years that D is one of my angels.  I have rarely felt it as much as today.  In these days before Thanksgiving, when we are enjoined to express gratitude, I am very thankful for my sister.
