Feeling better it’s becoming easier and easier to get excited about things that 2 weeks ago wore me out just thinking about. My make-up to do list is growing.
First, it’s Hanukkah time. We don’t generally make a huge deal out of it, but this year we’re planning lots of crafts and fun, almost as a means to apologize to my poor children for 8 weeks of boredom. Fortunately our area has several events going on with the library & downtown. Meanwhile our own friends and family intend to get together and celebrate as many nights of the 8 day holiday as we can.
The relevance of Festival of Lights is in the story of letting it shine, a story of not giving up–standing for what you believe in against all odds. Passion, gumption, strength, bravery, wisdom and ultimately trust.
The kids are super excited. We’ve hung some lights in our windows & some gifts are wrapped, menorahs are dusted and awaiting their candles, some of which we’ll start rolling tomorrow. Should be an eventful and adventurous week. I will try to document as much here as possible, there is catching up that needs to be done.
